    Ok, this is my first Bryce unit. I doubt anybody besides me will need it, but I decided to post it anyway.



    It's technically a Lymphocytes, but it can work for any other White Blood Cell. I'm planning on making a Monocyte, a Neutrophil, and a Red Blood Cell.

    Any suggestions? :)

    Don`t you go to jail in some countries if you are a neutrophil? :p

    Nice job, L_M! I like it alot, it seems very appropriate for your scenario. I dunno why, but during the 2 seconds it took the page to open I thought to myself: What, he C`n`P-ed a C3C Crusader?

    Don`t ask why. Its NY. I drank to much Diesel.

    This is great! I had a c'n'p red blood cell started, but it didn't look very good, :blush:. This came out great!

    Nice job, though improvement is possible. The movements are stiff, and the cell kind of just looks like a hole just opened up, and then antibodies spew out.

    All in all, nice job for a first unit. :thumbsup:

    I think I can use it as an organic spaceship, but the .pcx files won't help me.
    Good unit either way!

    If you wish to be technical, they don't "open up" like they appear to do in the animation (if they did, more than just antibodies would come out), but more of "bubble out" antibodies with exocytosis. (sort of encapsulating the antibodies in membrane bound bubbles and then they just come out when they hit the cell membrane)

    But the main point was that the hole that opened up looked too much like a part of the membrane just dissolved and it is now spewing out antibodies as it dies.

    It doesn't spew antibodies as it dies, that's the attack.

    Exactly my point. When it attacks, it looks like it dissolves a hole in its membrane, and cells with torn membranes usually are in the process of dying.

    I know. Just telling you what to improve if you decide to make a version 2.0 of this.

    Yeah, if you do, maybe don't do the hole, just have them diffuse (just go through animation-wise) the membrane, it would look cooler, :).
