I like this idea. Personally I' keep them as hobos, it just seems like each could have more diverse backstories that way, plus you can play more around with different pallettes instead of one uniform.

How are you planning on telling the story that they want to reach the distant city? I think that just placing it in the background isn't enough, especially since they're all gathering for some chow and seemingly not in much of a rush. Maybe one of them could hold out a thumb or a "looking for ride" sign towards the highway to indicate they are planning on moving on?

Nice stuff, great sketches

Thanks for the feedback, I like the idea of adding a sign so its obvious that they are trying to get to the city. I think I'll go with "space hobo" idea from now on, just so there is more variety with the characters.

Concept / pre-visualization: character sketches (human male)

Here are a few more sketches of the human character. I tried some designs with him as a grifter, an old captain-like guy, and as a grizzled space marine type. There is a range of cartoony and realistic looking heads, but I think I'll stick with the cartoony style.

Concept / pre-visualization: character sketches (human female)

These are some costume ideas for the human female character. I'm sticking with the idea that they are all space hobos and drifters, so the designs have to be unique (from eachother)and suggest something about the characters story. I imagine her as a Han Solo type character, so her costume is full of artifacts from her travels but is simple and ready for action.

Concept / pre-visualization: alien concepts (rough sketches)

This is a page of rough alien sketches. I'm thinking of changing the design of two or three of the alien characters (everyone except the mother and kids) to make them less humanoid and more interesting. The guy holding the sign could be inserted behind the characters to help get the idea across that they are trying to get to the city in the background.

Thumbs up gud luking stuff!

nice idea and great concept sketches..
am curious how it comes finally..

i ws jus wondering how r u gonna show those aliens interacting with humans or even with each other..u might miss the point there if there actions,reactions, even the way they are sitting is close to humans..but that's just my view..

keep up the gud work

Concept / pre-visualization: more alien sketches

These are more finished versions of the alien characters. I'm working on the finalized background right now, then I'll spend a day or two finalizing the characters before blocking in some colours.
