Infestation concept by Ghostwalker2061 Infestation concept by Ghostwalker2061
An idea I came up while watching Godzilla vs. Megaguirus. And yes, that is Megaguirus' shadow in that image.

That is not Telek however. That is Cujo, Telek's best friend (frat brother) and also second in command in Telek's little fleet.

Like Voi, I thought of another story that happened a little bit before the Second Battle of Earth. While Voi happens a bit before and during the Second Battle of Earth, Infestation would happen directly after Telek chases after Regret's ship to Delta Halo.

This story is about Cujo, though, fighting against another infestation that's very similar to the Flood when it comes to possession of hosts...but these creatures don't turn into undead zombies, they turn into insectoids. These creatures are called the Invae, and their little home happens to be the Chicago Bug City Containment Zone.

The idea of mine happens when Kiryuu asks Cujo and the other Shipmasters who were left behind when Telek tailed Regret to glass the state of Illinois, something that Cujo discovers regularly happens, except with nukes. Apparently, keeping this state dead and barren keeps the bugs from escaping Chicago. Even Lake Michigan is all dried up from the constant nuking. But then Cujo finds out that Kiryuu's sending him into Chicago for another reason, to retrieve an artifact that the Invae managed to get in possession. Let's just hope that Cujo, a team of ODSTs and Spec Ops Sangheili can get in and out before the Queen of the Invae Megaguirus tries to eat them for dinner.

Just an idea I came up. Cujo looks good with that fuel rod cannon on his shoulder. Cujo is not an aristocrat, so therefore he does not carry a sword like Telek does.

Last night? This image has been up for almost 3 years now. But thank you, however, Infestation is not finished, and hasn't been finished since 2009.

I don't know what you're talking about.

This image is a good 3 years old. I didn't just do it. It's not my fault that people are only now discovering it.

Most people look at my dragon art because it is what is popular.

...I watched the movie you were inspired by 3 years ago just the other day and happened across your image almost immediately after...its a funny coensadence is my point...It was in my watch messages as to why I thought it was just posted. Either you or someone else may have just featured it in the group I'm watching. Srry for the mix-up.

Very interesting concept there. As I said it looks like a nod to the first Alien movie or the Doom game.

Anyway, that is a creepy scenario there for Cujo to be put into. Will there be a huge gun fight when things get from bad to worse?

I like the idea, but I have two questions.

How do they keep Lake Michigan from refilling?

Is it just me or does Cujo have a beard?

There's a shield around Lake Michigan. There's a whole shield around the state and an inner shield around Chicago.

Yup, that's Cujo. He doesn't look bad. I love his garnet-colored eyes, like little reddish-purple gems.

He's a bit more slender and shorter than Telek and his skin has more of a purple tint to it where as Telek's skin is the color of mocha with more orange.

Draw more dammit!!!! It's not fair for just one or two characters to get the spotlight! Besides, doing so actually improves on more artists being interested in your work. Because your taking the time to explore your own characters and willing to add them to bits of work. Shows you aren't a one trick pony. :3

And he's adorable!!!! XD Of course that's just spycho me.

That's gonna be a nice story. This "bug infestation" stuff reminds me very much of starship troopers, which the bugs are also a big problem.

YEah, they are. It's already been mentioned in the chapter of Voi Assessment called Miranda's New Pet, but the Invae are some of King Ghidorah's spawn like the Flood are. So, yeah, what they do is similar, just the outcome is different.

Because they turn into insects instead of zombies.
