One of several concepts. This one inspired by "Sundiver" which I am reading at the moment.

The Pizzari race decide to uplift a human to a new level of conciousness and risk probation in the process. It is all an unfortunate misunderstanding.

Something along these lines might be more fun but I am rather slow in getting started and I have to learn XSI yet. Not sure which one to go for yet but I think I will start on a Waldo model.

Nice work! Your two concepts are both very different but I like them both. I would suggest going for the more simple option... although I'm not sure which that would be. Maybe if you simplified the pizza one then it would be more of a sure fire bet as you wouldn't have to work out how to make the etherial space thing (behind the dolphins).

I thought that my Pizzari concept was a bit weak so I started playing with other concepts but did a few more on this theme first. Here is just one more.

Thanks, John. Yeah. I have to pick something that I can realistically achieve in 30 days. I'll start modelling the guy and see how quickly I can pick up XSI. (nervous)

Ha! The Pizzari are hot and spicey creatures! Ask Domino's to put one on their menu. ;)
I'm pleased you like the concept but Iwas having trouble visualizing a pleasing palette. I want the image to have touch of 1950s sci-fi to it. When I have modelled the man I will have a better idea of what I want to do with him and the pizza fiasco is still a possibility. Thanks.

RupertD and Torsten, thank you very much!

I tried changing from Pizzaris to Coneheads:

Then I decided to stick to David Brin's characters from Sundiver:

This is meant to represent a moment shortly after Jeff, the chimp, is introduced in Sundiver:

The following two concepts are more symbolic than direct interpretations of events which occured in the book:

Now there are just 30 days left and I still have to learn XSI, model, texture, rig, pose, compose, and light one of these.
I must be mad! Wish me luck!

I will make a decision about which concept to follow and start modelling tonight.
