I don’t make fanart all that often, and it’s even rarer that I make a fanart of the same thing twice, but here we are! More art on an unreleased game I've never played, because I had this idea in my head and I really wanted to draw it.

So this piece is kind of like a culmination of three previous deviations:
1. the first fanart, featuring the playable races
2. the deviation which became part of the game, spawning a new race
3. the shading style which I recently tried and really liked; also, some of the composition.

I wanted to dress up everyone up like prohibition mobsters, but I totally failed to do my research so there are no zoot suits and the only guns are strange variants of tommy guns. I also skimped on the bonework here, so some of these guys have really long limbs! They are the lanky gang. They can reach high shelves and use their pants as hoses.

Fun fact: for the longest time, the plant dude was the only one without a weapon. He was bringing a smile to a gunfight. But at least now he is idiomatically correct!

Whats the point of suspenders when you have a belt?

They're there to demonstrate the artist's lack of understanding when it comes to clothing!

And for double security.

Totally rad. I'm digging these colors and lanky designs.

Starbound needs a Tommy Gun esque fire arm or a race based of of 20's and 30's gangsters.
