Dragonfly/Neo-Avian Artwork


In addition to all of the genetically-enhanced human morphs (bodies) in Eclipse Phase, there are a number of robotic morphs into which characters can sleeve, such as the dragonflies shown here, in this illustration by Nathan Geppert. We picked dragonflies as a synthetic morph design because we wanted something smaller with flight capabilities. A lot of robotics engineers are looking into biomimetics (mimicking natural biological shapes and functions) these days, and dragonfly wing design is especially good for hovering and maneuverability, and so useful in microgravity. The other non-human morph is a neo-avian--an uplifted crow in this case--one of several uplifted animal character/morph types available in the game.
