Commission: Starcraft 2 Zergling by retinence Commission: Starcraft 2 Zergling by retinence
The Zergling is from the video game: Starcraft 2.

The zergling is oddly top heavy. Its tail is too small and short to keep it correctly balanced. I had to manipulate the limbs to push the center of gravity over the feet.

This will be the last Starcraft related build for a while.

With the "Metabolic Boost" upgrade, they have given wings. Not to fly, though. To be faster. :)

This could lead to making a decent Groudon model.

I may not know much about Starcraft, but a brown, winged creature with purple armor makes for a pretty interesting looking creation.

Nice.

Nice!

Have you seen the teaser for Heart of the Swarm yet?
It could totally pass for an epic summer blockbuster trailer! After seeing it, I hope they actually do that as well.

Do zerglings have four legs or two legs, other limbs not included...? I think they have four, I am almost certain... But then I think i have seen them somewhere with two >.> Either way, pretty awesome. Looks tough.

Starcraft 1 has four. Starcraft 2 has two. They're like a kangaroo that can walk on four or hop on two.

Woah really? Omg xD I thought it might have been the reverse if anything. What reference did you use?

I used the original sprite model for coloring.

Ah! I suppose i do stand corrected. Sad, that's practically my favorite unit! Haha. I guess I always see the animations where they run like quadrupeds, so I assumed they had four legs.

Awesome! I loved being the Zurg when I used to play. Zurgling rushes were always entertaining, haha.

Amazing work~ I'm surprised you could get it to stand on it's own... Keep up the great work!
