this one of the ideas, I am still working on it. the story of this one is about an alien exchange student who came to earth to study and after a year and shes about to go back to her planet her human boyfriend took a photograph of her. the week before this she went to the dentist to have a brace because she saw lots of teenagers wearing braces and she want to have one. But she want it to be stylish and memorable and she asked the dentist to design her braces that will feature the symbols/logos that describe the present state/condition of the earth on its digital age. And she have her teeth embellished with gems of logos or symbols we see on earth.

for now it doesnt show the braces but it will later on. this will be 3D.

by the way, the mac and windows logo is just temporary, it will be replaced for now it's only for visual purposes.

This is a cool idea :buttrock:Perhaps you can make her look more alien though? I would never have guessed that she was an alien until you mentioned it in the story.

this is the poster for the basketball match I will be doing between humans and aliens.

right now I am still conceptualizing the characters for the first five line up of players for both teams.

Great concept with the uniforms! What about making the alien uniform more... well... alien? Multiple Arm Holes, or place them in unusal places?

Love the idea!

not all aliens/angels have extra arms and feet some of them are more humanoid looking, and that's what I am going for with the character design.

got to catch up I've been very busy. this image will be some of the sponsors, they will be the ones who will have their company name and advertising be seen all over the basketball court. this is just fictional of course as i cannot use actual or real company names.

i will try to finish this entry.
