Sendell(s) discussion

This is for discussion on the subject of the Sendells, what they might look like and how they should be modelled.
They could be quite glowy and ghost-like, which works in a dark environment. This drawing's vaguely meant to resemble a bird in terms of the arms being like wings. The neck is a little thin here, though. Perhaps the arms should be more substantial than here? Or maybe they could just sprout hands when Sendell touches Twinsen?

Sendells are beings of energy, I think they would be able to take any blue'ish form

I agree very much with blue, undefined energy.
However, I was thinking of sticking to the games "look":


Only with swirlys and ripples of smoke and energy around them.

So much like the picture above, but with less well defined edges. Purhapes the edges only being visable as a distortion in the energy/blueness.

Like this, or more defined?
Also, should light be coming from within them or reflecting off them?

I think it would be better if the image cycled from being more defined to less defined. Switching between brief moments of definite shape/texture (like in the game) and more abstractly shaped out of energy (like in the sketches). Confuse the audience.

Hey, I've done a drawing today, I've been thinking, maybe Sendell can just be an outline of a shape, shifting like sand with every move, drifting in a body shaped cloud of white-blueish smoke.

I like Jasiek's idea of the constantly changing outline. It gives her more of a mysterious quality. But looking at the image DF posted I think she more closely resembles a baby in the womb (I think because of the larger head and the position of the arms), which sort of makes sense since the Stellar Entity is in gestation.

That said, the first of the images attached here wasn't meant to resemble a you-know-what. But since we're throwing ideas around I thought I'd post it anyway. This is just an idea of Twinsen seeing the Sendells move around as balls of energy, and when one of these balls of energy comes up to Twinsen it's appearance changes to Sendell. Imagine these with Jasiek's lines and appropriate swirls (I think his idea for the surface and light is better than what I've drawn here). This is rather like Zerath's, where she appears as an outline and then comes into focus.

That's what I meant by 'you-know-what'. I suppose it fits with that metaphor. I am a Monty Python fan: remember the animation at the beginning of Meaning of Life?

Seriously, though, it could be toned down. That wasn't meant to be a tail but a trail left behind.

Luke, it's Pastels on a grey/black pastel paper right? Maybe try and outline the shape with a white one? Or darken it on the edges and lighten in in the inside?
