So, I wanted to show you all the different ideas i had for the color scheme… i was always going to do the black and gold but the green on the helmet kinda stuck out to me… so i ended up making a few different versions.
the first was just changing the helmet colors to match the chest plates.. i think the x5 sprite did that.
next i wanted to see what it would look like with the classic colors (but kept the gold joints, maybe il make them black)
the next 3 ideas were to make the x on his chest a gem
the first of these 3 ideas i got from xs back in command mission
the other two are just gren and red gem type things.
finally the last two were never intended to be released but i really wanted to see what x would look like in the classic colors. the only difference is the collar.
A) Green Gem
B) Red Gem
C) No gem just glowing through yellow (like command mission)
D) I felt the green on his helmet kinda stood out so I tried to use the same color of his chest plate. I think X5 did that with his sprite.
E) Tried to go a bit more classic color scheme but kept the Gold Joints.
F) Classic color scheme, black joints and collar
G) Changed the collar to match the chest plate
BONUS!! decided to VERY QUICKLY color X with the official X8 Colors, thought you guys might enjoy that, hope you do.
“Fearlessness is a fool’s boast, to my mind. The only men with no fear in them are dead, or the soon to be dead, maybe. Fear teaches you caution, and respect for your enemy, and to avoid sharp edges used in anger. All good things in their place, believe me. Fear can bring you out alive, and that’s the very best anyone can hope for from any fight. Every man who’s worth a damn feels fear.” ― Joe Abercrombie
So I just watched 6.06 and idk if anyone on Team delusional (or team defiance i guess) has thought about this yet but hear me out:
We seem to agree that the walker was supposed to make us remember Beth, or that the way they shot it was supposed to make us remember Beth and Daryl together - so that walker was representing Beth, in a way. Right?
Now, the helmet, to me, has a very obvious meaning.
What does a helmet do, people?
It protects the head!
The walker? It was DEAD (sort of) but it’s HEAD WAS UNHARMED.
The Beth-walker wearing a helmet?
How much more obvious are they going to make it.
Excuse me for phrasing this so awkwardly, I am very excited.
Walk along Mid-Atlantic beaches right now and you may see odd creatures that look like they belong in the dinosaur age. They’re horseshoe crabs, and scientists worry their numbers are declining.
To gather more information about what’s happening to the crabs, volunteers are dispatched along the coast each year at this time for an annual count.
It’s getting dark, and these sea creatures are lined up for miles on Kitts Hummock Beach near Dover, Del., where they come ashore to spawn.
Horseshoe crabs are sometimes called living fossils because they’ve been around for millions of years and survived when other species didn’t. The females are larger than males, some as big as a dinner plate. The shell has a horseshoe shape and from a few steps back they look like shallow green Army helmets.
