I don’t like this one as much as the one I did for Vex, and I think it’s largely to do with the fact that I don’t really have a color scheme in mind for Rigel. I wanted to make him very pale – almost albino – because it’s an uncommon choice for big, macho warrior characters, but the colors for his armor and gun were chosen arbitrarily.
I actually think my favorite part of this image is the ammo cartridge for the weapon. It’s a “shockgun” (get it? shotgun? shock….eh…), which shoots bursts of chain lightning. I’ve wanted to use the idea in a game for quite some time, and now I have a setting that makes sense to feature them.
