So I’m a terrible blogger! I didn’t get my installment of Space Dust up this week, and I was going to make it up to you all with a Fan Art Friday, and I failed at that too! Things have been manic here preparing for our next upcoming show, while affecting some home repairs. (The good news is that our kitchen is now both complete and fully functional!)
So by means of Concept Art Consolation, I give you Gator: the Megladyte engineer of the Rival Bay, native of Scathrod. This cheery, warm, lovable, space-crocodile is actually a mammal, despite his scaly complexion—which hopefully explains his shock of red hair. He’s a big boy, who can actually tighten most of the gigantic nuts and bolts of the Rival by hand, where others are compelled to use a machine.
Megladytes are a notoriously deceptive, and their culture reveres a good liar. Fortunately for Crimson and the crew Gator despises this cultural fascination with lying and is very sincere. The crew hasn’t gotten the whole story, so nobody has figured if Gator was exiled from Scathrod or if he just chose to leave due to disgust.
Hopefully the fact that Andross is full of crap won’t drive Gator off the ship…
