Just sketching out some scene ideas. I got some more i'll sketch out later, I need to get some sleep!

The version of the character you have placed in the middle is very intriquing. Definetly would be interested in seeing you flesh that one out.

Thanks guys for all your kind words!

I'm going to start working on the scene as we only have 38 days left!

Not to be negative, but I'm not sure that i like how the bearded alien has ended up. In the most recent drawing he looks extremely thing and fragile. In the earlier sketches, he looked thicker and seemed to hold himself with an air of intelligence/dignity. Now he seems in my opinion to be more caricature like.

Again its just my point of view and the environment you stick him in may affect the look/expression, but as he stands I think you've gone back a small step.

Sorry for the double post!

Looking back at the earlier sketches and comparing them to this one, I realized what stood out to me was the forehead/headpiece hat. In the previous samples they seem regal and king like. In this most recent one, it looks beaten and worn down. The loss of the status of the head piece is what I think is holding me back on the most recent sketch.

Again, depending on how you plan to present the character, this may be fine, but having seen the previous versions it seems a bit of a let down in impotance

just another concept.

04 April 2008, 06:28 AM
SFedor, thanks for your inputs. Yes I agree, but this new alien is just another kind or set. I want to have as many different types of aliens as I [can fit in the scene :) So no worries :cool:

04 April 2008, 07:22 AM
Looks like a very interesting concept! Good luck and keep it coming!

04 April 2008, 11:54 AM
The rendering on that platform is very slick, and the concept is coming together v well. Good luck!
