well, this is my first partecipation in this challenge, I hope to finish it, since I'm doing my diploma in the same time... will be tricky. I already have something in mind!!!

well, this is my concept: generally when we see something really different/weird we are scared. That's because it doesn't look like we do/ in the way it is supposed to look. So if we would see an alien probably we would be really scared (depending on his look). But in the same time the alien would be scared of us! Thats what I want to show.

this is my a lateral view of the scary/scared alien

today finally I had some time and did this quick 3d sketch. just starting with polys and then applied a deformer to see how it would work...
comments/suggestions/critics are more than welcome!!

just a little refinement on the previous model

Welcome to the challenge, man :)

I do have one thought about your concept -- As you said, it's very rational that the alien would be terrified of us. This is a contest about strange behavior, the polar opposite of what's rational. In the image the situation is strange, and the alien is strange, but the behavior isn't. There's still lots of time to brainstorm more fitting ideas.

Good luck with it, and with your coursework!

to chrisbeaver:

I guess you are right :D. I focused probably to much on the strange, and not on the behaviour... I will change my concept or at least modify it!

Anyway I like the Alien and probably I will keep him (in a way he reminds me at the simpsons tentacle aliens and patrick star)

P.S. Great Website (especially the clay-model :))

while I have to think about my concept I just tried to block out the scene. So far I'm really unhappy with the results... It can go just better ;-)

07 July 2007, 01:41 PM (

finally I modified my concept. This is going to be much more funny to do!

Basically the alien is searching for "Hot Chick" but he doesn't get what he wants...

I hope it's enough strange behaviour!

i think you should modify your idea some more. theres not much strange to it. if she is an alien she wouldnt have that shocking expression to see a human female on the internet. and the fact that she can google/navigate around the computer which shes supposed to have learned before coming to earth then therefore a sight of human photographs wouldnt be so surprising for her.

my entry in this challenge isnt so strange either but i'm not aiming to win- just having fun. good luck.

well, since I'm a selfthought beginner in 3d in this challenge I will run for the fun ;-), even if the concept doesn't fits 100% !


thanks for the advices!!!!

the alien isn't intended to be on earth using our internet, but he is on his homeplanet using their own "internet" (I used google only so that everbody understands what he is doing...). My sketch isn`t that accurate...

Critics are always welcome :-)
