Drell Faces by LassieCrumby Drell Faces by LassieCrumby
Not as.....refined or clean as my salarian face page, but I figured I should submit this. It was from when I was doing the Drell in Dead Space armor commission.... since I was designing the OC I did up a whole page of facial variations for the client to choose from. I figured (even though it's messy as HELL) I should submit this.
To me Drell have a lot of potential for facial variety. Which makes it a shame that Thane, Kolyat and ...that third one who's name I always forget have pretty much the same face.
I may (Emphasis on MAY) clean these up and make it into a proper face page...for now it's just a doodle, and I may submit it to scraps soon XD. But I wanted to see what people thought about it first.

As all the drells we have seen in the games are nothing but different variations of Thane and those in the comics, portrayed as some poor humans with some serious skin deformations I am more than happy to see that someone has decided to fix that problem! :D
Though this in some small part makes me wish that there would've been more drell characters in the game. Though as said before, there would've been only slight variations, nothing like what you have here! :D

Hahah. It did bum me out that they cared enough to give the asari all different faces, but nobody else. Well....some salarians had fat chins but other than that I don't think there was any structural difference between any of the aliens.....they were all just recolours.
Budget is definitely to be accounted for, but I really do feel like having some more variation could have been possible.

I love the second Drell in the last line. I have never seen a more manly man, ever. He could kill you with his chin, I swear! My favorite though is the one to his left, the first in the bottom row. Looks so skeptical. Well done. I hope you do end up making this a clean page, it's amazing.

>:3 I was so excited when my commissioner told me he wanted a manly drell. playing with facial structure is SO FUN.
....And yes, manly drell on the bottom could kill the reapers with his chin. XD

THAT is how we win this war. We enlist the manliest Drell, he looks at them, and they run screaming. Or, you know, whatever that shrill, high-pitched noise is...

If they never got to me I bet you can contact the mods and they'd be able to track if they went through or not and replace them.

I've always loved it when artists took what a game or movie gave them, and then played with it and expanded upon it. I really would love to do more pictures in this sort of theme.....turian faces, asari faces etc.

I really enjoy the thought of trying to add character variety to the otherwise cookie-cutter aliens of ME2. I really want to do a turian page someday...though it would be way way harder to do that with them XD.

I really do love the variation you have brought to the drell :) I love the third one from the left on the second row, if that makes any sense, that drell looks so young and kind!
I quite like the rough edges, they make them look a bit more raw and emotive, but i'm sure they would look just as good- maybe better if you cleaned them up! What do I know? *laughs*

XD is that a hint hiiinnttt I detect? Lol. MAYBE someday I'll clean them up....I'm really surprised at how much positive response this picture got, considering the quality. I kinda feel like I should pay back the love with a little bit of artistic effort XD.
He actually does look like a goody goody nicey boy hahahah. I can't really remember what was going through my head when I drew him

nah, no hint intended hehe, I prefer the images in their raw state as it shows the artists true self if that makes any sense at all. It's like trying to design a character and getting it right first time just by drawing against a concept, an idea. Then when you try again it doesn't work, because your trying to make it look good instead of being what you want. Or is that me again?

Hahah, had this been simply "Different citizens of Drell Society" I would have put in a few females for sure.....as it is, it was a commission project to design a male Drell Spectre....so unfortunately no female faces here. Though I'm not sure about that light green one anymore. I think he's hiding something.

The first one is just cute. Never thought I'd say that of a drell ...

LassieCrumby Featured By Owner May 26, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
XD I'm not positive...but I think I may have used the hulk or a hulk-like character for the dark green one hahahah.
The first one turned out cute because it was the first one that I drew, so my default impulses were to make him attractive XD. It's only after I've drawn a couple faces that I start to really play with proportions lol

:iconskyward-dreamer:
Skyward-Dreamer Featured By Owner May 27, 2011
Ha ha, I see. :) And there was one with a big, square hero's chin too. Superman drell perhaps? :)

Oh well he is attractive. At first I couldn't even look at Thane when I encountered him in the game .. he was just so odd! But I got over it after a while. I don't think most fans have that much trouble with drell though, so it was an interesting insight into my own preferences, what I find attractive and not.

Oddly enough, as much as I seem to love fish-men and aliens and such......I have never found Thane or Drell in general attractive. Something about them doesn't strike my fancy XD. I'm way way way more into Salarians, truth be told....odd as that may sound.

I see, well then, it's good to hear I wasn't the only one who had to look twice before coming to terms with them. It might also be that we don't know more than two drell yet, that's hardly enough 'proof' for an entire species. It would be like knowing only Saren and judge all turians by him ...

Well salarians are awesome, and they have great humour, at least some of them. So they're really easy to like I think. :)

I can't see drells having a "heavy" face such as the second bottom left, although I do see drells faces like an "asian-like" facial structure along with an melo-built-african face. Anatomy-wise. (Just as long as it's not like a "pretty boy/anime" face, it's good. ;P) Heavy makes the drell in general look different, although it does give variety at a point. If I see heavy drells, I can't see them with a huge jaw like a a typical caucasion-like muscular face. They could, however, be more like the second face on the middle roll. That face gives a more natural drell look somehow.... I don't know, drells live in deserts, so I may be wrong. Overall, these are really good sketches. :thumbsup:

LassieCrumby Featured By Owner May 26, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hahah, maybe you're right. Considering that all 3 drell that have been revealed have had quite small sharp faces, there may not be any with huge square jaws. But I do think it looks more fun hahahahah. Plus, my commissioner was asking for a really big, buff drell so I kinda had to have some faces like that ^^

AZNcelly Featured By Owner May 26, 2011  Student Interface Designer
Ahaha, commissions are alright then. ;) I would like to see more of the last drell in your sketch however, he looks attractive as well. Looks more natural in a desert enviroment for some reason. lol :P Maybe because of the big lips and nice chin. Reminds me of an African face. =p

XD they probably want to have facial variety really bad, but damn it would be so much work. It's probably a million times easier (and cheaper) to just cut and paste the same model over and over again, just sticking them in different clothing recolours. But gawed it would be so fun to just see a TON of different looking characters......short ones, fat ones, old ones, SOME CHILDREN???
