Concept / pre-visualization: Candle-lighting ceremony



Hi, all! Well, here I am. Given that I was the first person to realize that this would be the David Brin Uplift Challenge, you'd think I'd have been on the scene earlier, eh? But they overbooked the Challenges and started this while the Dominance War III contest was going on, and so I had to finish that challenge first. But that's all done, so here I am.

My image is going to be about an alien ceremony. When you're a wolfling clan like the Humans, you'll spring for recognition from any alien clan you can find in hopes of making new allies. So here we find the humans formally invited to take part in a ceremony on the homeworld of some really tall species with four arms. To adequately take part in the event, holding four candles and wearing the proper respectful robes, a bit of improvisation was necessary...

This is still rough. I like the humans - or at least most of them except for the feet! - but haven't thought much about their uniforms yet. The aliens I will undoubtably completely redesign, but no matter what, they'll be tall and have four arms. Anyhow, see what you think.

a prerequisite of these candle ceremonies is having four arms to hold not 2 but 4 candles :? YEAAA!! millions of years of evolution lead to this unatural advantage over humans...HAH.

interesting narrative, already mike, seems like some poor two armed souls are being accousted up the back there..could it be the poor performance of their representatives?.

Well after the incredible effort for DW the third, i can't believe your here so soon..

good on you mike..

(out of interest, how long have you been illustrating for now, mike?)

Hi Mike The Walrus! Long time no see! You do work very fast! I went to look at your DW3 entry and its really nice.

May i ask what the candlelight ceremony is about? Oh, if those aliens practised the custom, shouldn't they be using a special alien candle, ones that don't look too humanised.

I'll be waiting to see further developments of your concepts! All the best and have fun!
