I've always been an admirer of Stonehenge.

Of course it was built with the help of aliens .... otherwise how would the stones have been lifted up :)

the idea is that a celtic chief and an alien are surveying the scene of the Stonehenge building site. It will be nearing completion ...

I would like both of their faces and a fair bit of Stonehenge to be in the image, at least enough of Stonehenge to be visible that it is undoubtedly Stonehenge. Maybe this is not possible.

they might be standing on a large stone as yet not in place, or on some sort of platform, not nessecarily fixed to the ground ....

first thoughts ..

the plan is a hologram, it will be a detailed model of stonehenge, so that the building site won't have to be. Might have a few kilted folk enjoying themselves on the monoliths while they're being transported to give a sense of perspective and size.

I think that the aliens should be the well known little Reticulans.

Still a wip, but his head is nearing near enough.

Unless you know better ?

I got the idea, that if I couldn't manage the celtish kilt guy and mates then I couldn't manage our lil alien friend and his mates. Thing is that I can only do stuff sometimes, no oft in 10 minute stints. Our 6 month old ankle snapper being the main reason.
So here is our kilt guy, minus kilt and everything else...
