I really want to draw what Sheason and Tuera would look like in Elite Dangerous. Trouble is, I'm not sure my hand will cooperate, because it hasn't in some time.
Sheason would be easy enough, because I'm picturing him as part of the Hutton Orbital Truckers Co-Operative. Which means he'd probably end up looking like Cledus, Jerry Reed's character in Smokey and the Bandit, complete with trucker hat and vest. Can't really pull that off in game because those options don't exist for character customization (which is why, in the screenshot
from earlier, he looks like a discount Maverick) but who cares. I just want an excuse to have him be drinking out of a Hutton Mug
Tuera, on the other hand... I'm sure that she would be a full-on villainous asshole, yet again. And that means she would definitely
be an Imperial. It's a perfect fit, really. They have the best visual aesthetic, their economy is built on the back of a massive slave trade, and they have almost certainly committed genocide in the past against the pre-FTL alien species that used to live on the world Capitol
. And because I can't picture her in anything practical, she wouldn't be wearing the Remlok Suit
; she'd probably be wearing something flowing and elegant with plenty of white and gold (with blue lights built right into the outfit, because Fuck You), mag-boots styled to look like high-heels, and a thigh holster sticking out of the slit in her dress to hold some kind of crazy plasma gun.
The gun would have three settings: "Stun," "Kill," and "Solve All Immediate Problems," as a tribute to Yahtzee's book Will Save The Galaxy For Food.
(I should point out: calling her a pilot would probably
be a stretch. Even though her ship would almost certainly be an Imperial Cutter
, I doubt she would actually fly it herself. Not that she couldn't
fly it, mind you, she just wouldn't
. After all, she has people
to do these things for her. )
Of course, all of this is moot, since I can't seem to get my hands to draw - or even write anything of consequence - lately.
