Argonahn The Lone Engineer by zabani Argonahn The Lone Engineer by zabani
This is my part of art trade for :iconolifaciy: :) EDITED version.

I asked her to do an art trade, since I saw some of her fan art of Engineer from Prometheus:) She gotta a very nice sense of style:)

In any case I named the Last Engineer Argonahn after I have heard from *LeetaCakes he was named Bob by some folk from either the crew of the movie or some fans (I do not know.), because Bob?? Really? :iconfacepalmplz:

I used a official pic of the actor in this suit as a ref. But I made a slight change on his position of his hands. Might be some flaw on this one, but what can I say? :P

Luckily my strange mind came up with a more exotic name for this poor guy:P

The Last Engineer, Prometheus is owned by @Ridley Scott and his crew.
Argonahn the name is @by me.

First off - I bow to your pencil shading skills. I need to be more patient to do a better job with shading.

I left a comment about making his cranium a bit rounder on the other picture.

The right side of his ribcage should be darkened and brought out more - that is the part that would seem closest to someone standing in this position. Each rib should be slightly wider than the ones on the left-it makes his chest more barrel shaped. Right now he looks a little bit like he's breathed out and is hunched up a little.

Compared to his upper arms, his forearms are too thick, especially the half closest to his wrist. They should taper more. The relative sizes of his hands are switched-the nearer one should be larger and the other one smaller to balance them out. The neatest thing about the actor who plays the Last Engineer is that he actually has long slender fingers.

Most anyone can smoke me on backgrounds. The symbols add a nice touch reminiscent of the movie backgrounds without the creepy factor.
What do you think?

He reminds me of Isaac Clarke, because of his upper arms and upper body having that design.

Hmmm haven't thought of that :hmm: One would see some resemblances, if one would fuse the two franchises together. Like in cross-over or something.

The engineer from tf2 builds dispensers. And the name of this alien is engineer! Get it?

Are you doing any fanfiction with Argonahn or Geshtu? Reason I ask is if I add on to my fanfiction, I'm gonna need a name for the Last Engineer. I'm wondering if you'd let me borrow yours.
(Folks did this with Avatar fanfics trying to nail down a name for the Eastern Sea leader - the red painted female Na'vi)
Anything neat I can think of is a good name for the OCs who wake him up.
Argonahn has really been sticking with me as a good name, and will sound a bit different from the OCs names. Side bonus - he gets to live in my fanfic.

You could make up a new name for him I am sure of it ;-)

Some smartaleck on Prometheus Movie Forums decided to call him Bob. Took me a while of hunting through the threads to figure out. Left comments on the picture with reference - like your names for these guys a whole lot better. RIP ya big lug-wish you'd have been woke up by a smarter bunch of humans.
