Ref Sheet - orca!Delta by grayorca Ref Sheet - orca!Delta by grayorca
Because I couldn't come up with a more clever title. :P And this was done much more for my own enjoyment than anything else. I'd like to dabble in a few other paintings of this guy sometime.

Colored version of this:


The pathology: I played Bioshock 2 (whose protagonist, Subject Delta, serves as the inspiration for this orcafied design) before getting ahold of the original. I like both titles on their own merits, and largely for the whole underwater setting of Rapture. Dunno if I'll play Bioshock Infinite yet. Too broke at the moment to rent/buy it. ^^;

Another Bioshock MV to share: "I'd Come For You" by Nickelback [link]

EDIT: added his 'color wheel' with corresponding labels

It's fun to take characters and orcafy them :meow:

This one is really cool :D

Orcafying seems to be my solution rather than attempting crummy fanart, to do something unique. I've seen one other bit of Bioshock fanart that turns this kind of character into a drill-faced orca (more like a narwhal, if you ask me). But that was three years ago it was submitted.

Thank you. :D

The only character I've orcafied is Tim Burton's Edward Scissorhands XD

And you're welcome :meow:

AH I LOVE BIOSHOCK!!!!!! :heart::heart::heart: I have the Ultimate Rapture Edition and I highly recomend Bioshock Infinite, it's my #1 favorite game ever! The moment I saw this character I instantly thought of Subject Delta :heart: Really great job turning him into an orca, I love the whole no-dorsal thing, it keeps him nice and streamline.
Nice work :nod:

I knew at least one of my watchers would have had to have played the games. :highfive: Right on.

Thank you. :D Admittedly, this is a very simplistic design, compared to how intricate the in-game model is. But I like what aesthetic it has nonetheless.

It's definitely my favorite first-person shooter, of the few I've played.

Thought: If Big Daddies were orcas, what would that make a Little Sister? A smaller orca, or a dolphin/porpoise of some kind?

Or an otter or something of that sort. That could be interesting.

I haven't played Bioshock, but I've watched my brother play it. I couldn't play it at the time because my PC couldn't handle the graphics or something, I'm not sure, but I don't know where it is now.

I'd recommend watching playthroughs on YT in the absence of having the games, or getting them for Xbox/PS3 if you can. They're entertaining stuff. :3

I've heard of Bioshock but never played it but I really loved the design.

Thank you. :aww:

I highly recommend them. Look for the "Ultimate Rapture Edition" - includes both games, plus all their bonus content for a nice price of about $25. :D

Thanks. :D

"Cute" is one word to describe it. I don't know that an orcafied Big Daddy could be in any way intimidating, other than its abnormally huge size. I'll keep thinking on the idea, though.
