TREASURE PLANET 3
Mr. Arrows is a mineral-lifeform, a stone. I was hoping to come up with something really special. I didn't want to do just a human with a skin-problem, to avoid the human form as much as possible. The problem with a stone is , as soon as you move it, bent it, squash it, stretch it, it looses it's "stoneyness" and becomes soft. I thought , maybe it should stay firm and float , or stand in the corner on the bridge, like a real stone, his voice coming from a chasm in his "face",if it had any, why not.
What would you do, with a talking stone, if you had one ?
He could also have had a robot-arm or walking device,that would help him to move, but that was too close to Silver and his cyborg-arm.
Anyway , there's always that one drawing , that you do to illustrate, what you don't want, and in Arrow's case, it was "The Thing". I wanted to avoid that solution by all means, unfortunetly it was what Ron and John liked the most, so there you are, a stonething in a uniform....
