IDK why it’s not a more popular headcanon that Mccree didn’t just lose his arm in whatever explosion/calamity he went through, but also a significant chunk of his torso
I would imagine that whatever it was would have definitely taken out most of that side of his body, and even if it didn’t they would have had to do some serious work to create a working structure that supported the weight of his arm on his torso
I’ve also considered that those gigantic tubes wired into his stomach are just some fancy cooling system, but I also genuinely think it’s more likely Mccree’s got quite the injury that’s more than just a missing limb. He might even have some artificial/biomechanical organs under all that plating.
Not to mention his torso kinda sorta resembles Zenyatta’s
As well as Genji’s
So I do pretty much believe that the setup on Mccree’s torso isn’t just armor plating you can take off, especially since there’s no discernible reason a chest plate should glow like that unless it’s got some mechanisms running under there
We interrupt your regularly scheduled blogging to bring you even more of my ridiculous obsession with the arranged marriage royalty AU. You can blame @operaticspacetrash for this monstrosity. THE HYPE IS REAL and I am trash.
(P.S. click for bigger version, I think it looks best like that.)
I saw @muchymozzarella‘s post about McCree having more cybernetics than just his arm and I wanted to make my own post about it since its been a long time headcanon of mine.
The idea here is that all the pipes and plating around McCree’s torso aren’t just a normal chest plate, but are actually attached to McCree himself.
The way that the lower plate kind of bends around the pipes to accommodate for them like THEY HAVE TO BE THERE or how the pipes go beneath the waist of his pants?? Super impractical if it was actual armor? He (refer to the pic below) also has a plate on his upper back and I’m just- it’s so impractical and scattered with no real goal to Protect – his sides are wide open – to be like armor.
Now, McCree’s color palette is super earthy so you’re dealing with a lot of browns and not having a lot pop out at you besides the serape. Along with that covering him, it’s kind of hard to distinguish what he’s wearing: Is it a shirt, is it like some kind of under armor to the chest plate, or you can even argue that- yeah, it kind of does look like that brownish synthetic skin that you can see on Genji’s own sides.
BUT! When you switch to something like Americree or the On The Range skin, you can clearly see that McCree is just wearing a basic shirt. That only makes the supposed armor more confusing
LOOK AT WHERE THOSE PIPES GO
THEY’RE NOT EVEN ATTACHED TO THE UPPER PLATE OR THE PLATE YOU CAN SEE ON HIS BACK; JUST RIGHT ON HIS SIDES
it kind of looks like there’s holes in the shirt by the orange glow to have some kind of accessible port, but all in all-
WHAT IS THEIR PURPOSE
It’s just so oddly designed that the more you look at it, the less it seems like functioning armor pieces and just straight up are cybernetics that keep McCree alive
- You don’t know how to cook more than ramen so I’m trying to teach you but all you have to eat is ramen and a single carrot. How are you alive?
- I needed you to go grocery shopping for me because I love to cook but you have no clue what you’re doing. Also, how do you not know what a radish is? Have you been living under a rock or?
- You are an amazing cook and just watched me eat microwave popcorn for all 3 meals today and I think you’re going to punch me.
- You just made what you think is a really easy dish but I’m actually crying at how good it is. No, I’m fine, I’m just in love with your cooking so much. Please, will you make me more food in the future?
- For my birthday you bought me 3 different cookbooks and I get the hint. You want me to actually make food for once. But dude, it’s hard and takes time to do that.
- We’ve stayed home all day so neither of us have changed but when you started cooking you put on an apron. Now I just realized you are in fact naked wearing a apron and wow you just made cooking sexy.
- “I tried to make you a birthday cake but it completely flopped so now your cake is just a plate of marshmallows. I’m sorry.”
- “I forgot that you’re allergic to (insert food) and I accidentally put some in your meal. Now our dinner date is spent at the hospital.”
- “We’re trying to cook a nice meal together but I’m really clumsy so I dropped everything on the ground. So now we’re eating pizza and watching movies together.”
i edited the first episode of car boys so that n*ck r*bins*n was completely muted and so there’s no trace of him left because i still wanted to watch car boys but the idea of that shit for brains makes me nauseous now
if you aren’t following my personal blog, you probably don’t know that I’ve been mildly obsessing over watching this show since may 2016 (and have been “almost caught up” since like december, but they keep airing new episodes). it just took me this long to post art of it because headcanons are hard, man :0 these are still subject to change, and I may have forgotten some canon details, but it felt good to be able to do some art again!
