Fox, Krystal and Sabre by PluckyNinja Fox, Krystal and Sabre by PluckyNinja
Sorry it's been taking forever for me to upload new stuff, folks!

So I was playing the Star Fox games recently, and I was feeling the itch to do a bit of fan art. In case you're rusty on your gaming history, Star Fox Adventures was originally an N64 game from Rare called Dinosaur Planet. Krystal and her brother Sabre were the two main characters, but when the game became Star Fox Adventures, Sabre was replaced with Fox McCloud, and Krystal was now only playable in the tutorial level.

This is what I imagine Sabre to look like if he were to exist in the Star Fox universe. Sabre and Krystal were originally going to be cats, so obviously Sabre is now a fox. I kept a little bit of the medieval warrior look but gave it a slight sci-fi update. I also made him a bit beefier than Fox, since I figure he would likely still prefer to use a sword in combat (which like Krystal's staff is probably powered by "space magic").

Even though Sabre is a relic of the Dinosaur Planet beta, I can't help but wonder if he might still be out there roaming the galaxy, searching for his little sister.

Okay, am I the only one who thinks Nolan North would make a great Sabre?

Imagine if Sabre was included in a new Star Fox game, but I doubt that since he's likely Rare property.

 I'm curious if you might take a request, as I have an idea for a new kind of starfox team member

Uh, last I checked, Sabre was already a fox. Krystal was an adopted sister.

The only Star Fox game I played was the original on the SNES, with the untextured vectors and everything. What did it use, the FX chip or something? Good fun, but I was terrible at it so I never bought it, only rented once or twice. All this fanart of Krystal always makes me wonder what it would have been like had my parents gotten me an N64.

Ah, well. Good work as always, sir. It may not be your best but anyone with creativity knows sometimes you just wanna do something nice and easy. ;)

Nice way to breathe new life into a beta character. I gotta say, if Rare had plans to remake Dinosaur Planet, I'm thinking that they could add him as a character in place of Fox.

i thought you were dead since you aren't on Tumblr.....and you say thats where you are the most :P

To be honest I have been using DA and Tumblr very little lately, so I've been a bit hard to contact. I hit a bit of a creative wall a few months ago and I kind of had to unplug for a while. :\

Though now that you mention it I really should update the info on my DA page to let people know that contacting me through Tumblr is not an effective way to reach me anymore. Currently my public email is the best way to contact me ( I have been slowly but surely getting back into DeviantArt, although notes have never worked well for me since I only ever see them when I am on DA.

ok, well its good to know what happened to you :D

Interesting. I am writing a prequel from a fanfic that I wrote where Sabre appears and he is an ancestor from Fox and the only who could face a powerfull dark lord from a technologically advanced planet which was in war against Cerinia.

Info on Dinosaur Planets original story is fragmented and sketchy, but if I recall correctly, Sabre and his father Randorn were supposed to be Wolves, while only Krystal was feline. 

The old Wizzard Randorn left his youngest son Sabre in despair when Sabres older brother (name unknown) was killed in battle (with sharpclaws/Gen.Scales?), and later encountered a young orphaned Krystal during his wanderings and adopted her, making her Sabres adopted step-sister, eventually leading to an awkward family reunion years later within the events of the game ... or so it would have gone.

... at least ... I THINK that is what I remember reading.

why does Krystal's expression remind me of Miranda from Mass Effect?
(probably cause of the semi air tight suit and heavy eye shadow. . .)
