Art Nouveau Engineer | Rhishuaa by MeliHitchcock Art Nouveau Engineer | Rhishuaa by MeliHitchcock
Second Engineer fan art. Though itís more of an OC than anything. I canít resist.

Rhishuaa is the opposite to Anishuu; a carefree, stop and smell the roses (all the time) individual whoís loyalty is both intense and tenuous. Early in his years, he was a part of a developmental research team lead by a very ambitious Elder who would use any means to achieve his goals. After experiencing first hand some of the horrific experimentationís this Elder oversaw, Rhishuaaís doubt on his moral standing shifted and he found himself repulsed by what he witnessed. Leaving his team, he chose to focus on preserving existing life. Unfortunately this often impacted his relationships with others. While many understood the necessity of sacrificing ones self for the sake of their people, Rhishuaa rejected this fully. Often times, he would actively work to sabotage events that would lead to deaths of those he cared about most. Many who had uncovered his deceit abandoned him entirely until most he knew were those holding similar ideals as he.

Side Note: When I finally finished this piece, I was left a little disenchanted with the other one so I plan on fixing it so that it matches the detailing with this. I'll be updating it probably later today.

Love the colors you used and the fact it looks primitive but at the same time evolved, capable to create life and travel through the universe. I like the detail of the flute in his hand and the hood on the head. Beautiful.

While I have to admit I'm more of a fan of the angry, tough, military type of Engineer, it is really nice to see one of these guys cracking a smile. He looks so sweet and happy and...almost coy. Like he's thinking "those other fools don't know what they're missing out on." This whole piece has a really playful vibe, and I love it. It's always nice to see another side to these guys!

That's pretty much him in a nut shell. To a degree, he enjoys rubbing it into others that the experiences gained through life hold more value than the overarching advancements they make. In that regard, a lot feel as though he's holding himself higher than others so he comes off as a bit of a jerk sometimes. :p

By the way, I need to upload some small work I did based on your fan fiction. Not sure if I want to wait though until I finish the work for chapter two or just go for it now. =p

Lol, I did kind of get that "self-righteous Hippie" vibe from him. I could totally see him driving the more traditional Engineers up the wall. That just makes me love him all the more though :D

OMG, you did some fanart based on my fic?? AAAHHH! :D Thank you so much, that's really nice of you!

I'm dying to see it :D

And there's one for chapter 2 as well? You are too kind :D

i.. i am a big fan of Ridley Scott and "Alien" and "Prometheus" of course.
and this picture... I have never thought that I would like this concept of "Engineer". You make him really cool !!
And now i think : why Scott didn't do this person like on the picture :DDDDD

may be some mistakes, sorry !

I consider him staying on the homeworld, if they have one. So his garments wouldn't look like the warriors at all. But I really wasn't satisfied with the dull grey robes that the Elders wore in the deleted scene of the movie. So I opted for something like the warriors do; using their resources to engineered clasps, buckles, or even the 'cloth' itself to their bodies. When they wanted to, they could remove it and do something different.

And your writing was perfect! :) Don't fret!

I love the gentle, yet playful look he has on his face. That's also a large flute he has there. :giggle:

Also, I think he and my pred gal Kyra would get along perfectly. She is more or less unnatural, an experiment from within her clan (of which the elders were trying to create the 'perfect species' of Yaut'ja/predators.) and they were attacked and separated. Basically she's protective of other life so long as they aren't a direct threat to her ^^ and she loves to befriend 'alien' species.

Nyaaaan! Very nicely drawn... I'm envious.
Love the face expression. And the backstory is very original. Poor guy. Is he condemned to loneliness because of his peaceful views and the lack of wish to die? If so, I would kiss his lovely nose and give him a rose tea with the cookie...

Not entirely. There are others that hold the same ideals as he does so he's not entirely alone. The bulk of society doesn't think too highly of them so they keep them at a distance. He did undergo a lot of pain losing good friends however. Including Anishuu. They still talk, though rarely, and while it's polite there is still a lot of resentment on Anishuu's part.

But Rhishuaa would take some rose tea with cookies any day. :D He always appreciates kind gestures!

Thanks for the explanation :) and what were these experiments he has aversion to? Something Xeno-related or black goo?

Nyaaan! He is cutie.

The experiments involved their own people being used as guinea pigs for new tech. They wanted to measure the effects on the body so they brought in youth that had been indoctrinated to believe their deaths were for a noble cause. The pain they underwent left Rhishuaa really shook up when he didn't really know why as he, too, was raised to believe the same. It took a lot of self reflection to come to the conclusion he did and a lot more courage to walk away. This was not without consequence however as he was barred from research as well as ever obtaining ultimate paradise. But that never stopped him from breaking in or hacking their system to see what they were up to. =p He's resourceful. Clever. A good ally to have even though he's prone to really messing up that alliance if he decides to make a decision that seems like in your best interest but it's not. His intentions are (mostly) good. Just not always welcome by others.

That's very intriguigng. And Elder was an asshole... for unknown reason I have a soft point for the young Engineers (maybe because of my sympathy and pity for the Sacrifice one) and if I was in Rishuaa's place I would do the same.
What's for Anishuu? He still believes in that' Elder ideas?

MeliHitchcock Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Not necessarily. Anishuu is a rule follower though he's toed the line (not out rightly breaking protocol but deliberately finding loopholes to avoid certain directives he didn't like) enough times that Rhishuaa has called him on his hypocrisy. That was after his own crisis with Rhishuaa though. Before that time, he believed in the ideals held within their society very strongly. After he was royally screwed over by Rhishuaa, and had few options he adopted some of Rhish's ideals though he'd never admit it. His ego's too frail and prone to bruising. :p
