Very, VERY interesting concept for a turned Varren.  I actually like the whole idea of the Reapers turning to converting the lesser intelligent species of the galaxy.  It gives the clear impact of Shepard's decision(if the destroy option was chosen I'd more likely assume), making the Reaper's desperate and willing to do anything to maintain their existence and their, 'solution.'

No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Varren are not an advanced civilization either.

So? Blood Pack used them as attack dogs, and unless you're Commander Shepard, Attack-Varrens were pretty dangerous. It'd at the very least be plausible to take a few varren, "improve" them with Reaper Tech, and sick them on us, to distract us from the stronger Reaper-Ground-Forces.

If all you're gonna do on just about every piece of this guy's work is complain about the lack of possibility for IDEAS that were never implemented to begin with... just don't view his work, or don't comment at all. You do this on *every* submission. Can you *please* stop? His ideas are his ideas.

I know I probably just fed a troll, but somebody had to speak up. ;-;

Oh, man. I...I'm so sorry. I never meant to be a Troll. But now I feel like one. :iconsadtrollplz:

But you're right. Someone had to speak up for the creator. I brought this on myself, so I accept the blame TT_TT

No, no. You're not to blame at all. You had an opinion and was ready to voice it. I'm happy that you know the lore and were one for supporting the "Advanced Races/Species Only" rule. Power to you!

:iconawesomefaceplz:

You weren't exactly intending to be a troll, so that's okay. I just thought that the Creator of this artwork had the right to come up with inventive ideas for races/animals that were sadly excluded from ME3. Even though not all of them were 100% on point, I agree, the Pyjak was kind of a weird idea but hey, Concept Art is just that: Concepts that may or may not make the final cut. You're cool. I like you. :)

We cool, brah?

Hellhound:
The Hellhound,as referred to by Alliance troops,is a product of Reaper conversion of a Varren. The nano-tech upgrades heighten their senses of hearing,sight,and smell,allowing them to detect enemy forces from a good distance away and even when they're in very hidden locations. As well,Hellhounds possess a highly pressurized synthetically grafted jawline designed to crush armor. Additionally,like the Varren they once were,Hellhounds will hunt in packs,flanking opponents and covering any exits to secure the capture or kill.

Hellhound:

During their invasion, the Reapers converted many varren into husks. Referred to as "hellhounds" by Alliance soldiers, these varren husks are just as deadly as any other husk. During the conversion, Reaper nanotech enhances the varren's senses of hearing, sight, and smell in addition to making the hide much harder to pierce. The bite can pierce armor, while the saliva brings about a high risk of infection. Hellhounds are usually deployed in the later stages of Reaper occupation to root out resistance.

Since the varren are so super adorable pre reaperification I guess it's hard to make them scary even as reaper borgs.

While on Tuchucka the Reapers captured Varren specimens and implanted them with nano tech enhancing their sense of smell. Packs of Reaper Varren are deployed along with Reaper troops onto invaded colony worlds in Urban areas. With their enhanced tracking ability they sniff out civilians that may be hiding in ruined buildings or underground. After spotting prey it emits a high pitch howl that alerts nearby Reaper infantry. Just like when it were alive they still have a nasty bite.

Hey, do you plan on doing any more of these reaperized creatures? There's still a couple that could be done I think, like the Klixen, the Raloi, Thorian, Geth etc etc :)

Man, I would love to commission you to draw a Reaperified Ghardaki—an original race I invented that Shepard, et al. first encounter as Husk-type creatures. "Ghardaki" is the singular, "Ghardakon" is plural; they look kind of like a cross between Garthim from The Dark Crystal and Makrura from World of Warcraft, are amphibious, and are about the size of a modern-day minivan. Their current level of technology is about the same as what humans in Europe and the US had around the 1930s; a Reaper intercepted one of their random radio broadcasts and stopped by the planet to harvest a bunch of them. :saddummy: So, Shepard and her squad are going to have to find the planet the Ghardakon come from and save them from the Reapers, like everyone else...

I haven't even drawn any concept art of Ghardakon yet; all I have is a vague mental image of "alien lobster-people". xD
