Alaerin Officers by Blazbaros Alaerin Officers by Blazbaros
Commission for ~rcs619 and ~Durendal5150

An Example of a low-ranking spacer and a higher ranking officer in the Council Sovereignty of Alarie's Space Forces.

The Color of a spacer's markings denotes their rank. In order, the colors are Red, Green, blue and Violet. A black background differentiates command personnel. Newly enlisted personnel of the absolute lowest rank have a grey marking of their department, and are not allowed embellishments. Likewise, the lowest command rank has white markigns within the black spaces on their uniform.

The officer on the right is wearing a formal dress uniform, while the figure on the left is wearing a standard duty uniform that all personnel would wear at stations.

Personnel of the Luminaire Navy provided for scale reference.

I don't know why but this makes me think of a question about aliens. In a sci-fi world, where aliens can immigrate permanently to other planets. At what point would they consider themselves natives? Maybe it's becomes I just saw Man of Steel this afternoon.

I can imagen it would happen eventually.

Anyway, grate work. do you have any experience with animation? Would you be willing to give it a try?

I'd still love to make a game based in this universe with your artwork. I really love it.

Yes and no; for the most part Alaerin don't have the same fixation as humans with making things overly huge. Most of their space fleet is roughly on par in size with larger human craft. (though several levels of relative tonnage lower.) That said their command ships tend to sit in the 4km-ish range, while most human vessels tend to max out at 1-1.5km.

What about cities and towns? Or even ground vehicles? That'd be cool to see.

I wonder what the Alaerin's symbol for a medic would look like.

I just feel sorry for when they have to stuff their ears into a space suit helmet.

On an not exactly related note... all the people in this picture could live on the same planet... Luminaire is a mixed colony XD

You were a big Robotech fan back in the day, weren't you? This race is a lot like the Zentraedi.

If I had a dollar for every time I heard that, I'd be a very rich man.

The fact of the matter is that I have only the slightest familiarity with robotech. That and I'm not certain how they're like zentraedi at all, beyond "they're big." Though they did give zentraedi pointed ears in a retcon, I heard?

In Macross (the series that spawned Robotech), the Zentraedi were retconned to have pointed ears. And some had greenish or bluish skin, though they are even taller than your Alaerin. But the outfits look a little bit like a fusion between Zentraedi military outfits and UN Spacy outfits from the first Macross series. That's why it rang a bell, I think.

Ahhh, wouldn't know. I asked blaz to base the costume design on a random sketch done by another deviant: [link]

Can see fairly enough the rough physical similarities, but blue, big, and pointy eared is about the end-all be-all of that. :P
