Starbound: Florans by Aesthetic-Defile Starbound: Florans by Aesthetic-Defile
EDIT: Realized it looked rather flat, so I did a bit of cleaning/ highlighting and deepened the shadows a bit.


This is Fanart for a playable race in an upcoming game; Starbound.

This is a Floran, one of many of their kind. Florans are resourceful and very, very intelligent. Do not let the leafy armor and tribal-esque clothing fool you as it did other travelers. They may have more than just a finger on technology.

Starbound is a 2D side-scroller, sandbox, rpg, space-age-themed game.
Most everything in the game is procedurally/randomly generated. This includes monsters, weapons, atmospheric/weather conditions, planets, terrain/biomes, caves, crypts, dungeons, treasures, and so much more.
The developers working on Starbound have diligently been sculpting this game to be absolutely amazing.
Just about everything can be interacted with, destroyed, replace, or utilized. From the plant life, to ore.

One feature that has really caught my attention is the planet exploration. Terraria, Minecraft, all have but one world (three in Minecraft if you include the End/Nether). Starbound has a vast selection of planets that you can travel to and from, again, randomly generated and just waiting to be explored. Do not expect the planets to be stagnant in design, either. The variation and combinations for unique planets is vast.

If you guys liked Terraria, you're going to praise Starbound.
So head on over check out the features thus far.

Wow... Just. Wow. This is -amazing-! I don't even have words. Love the eyes/mouth. They really draw attention. The pixelated background really makes the image pop. Love it! <3

Thank you!=D
The pixelated background was inspired by the single tiles in the game. Thought it was kind of appropriate.xD
