Rockband! Someone's been playing Rockband!

The idea is a good one! Music unites everyone unless there are hearing impaired aliens! I suggest having a more dramatic angle and poses. Something like this: but with better composition like this:

Also try to have various types of alien body shapes and forms that enable them to play their own unique musical instruments. The result of such combination is an intergalactic sell-outs!

All the best, Fernando!

Ditto on Jerome ideas-good call with the references indeed;it'd be cool if the aliens have their own instrument designs, and/or playing them with unusual parts of the body (no sex implied!!) like a sight-sensitive floaty piano interface or something. I'm personally partial to a smoky jazz club with a sexy front alien girl- or not.
Great concepting so far, Fernando, looking forward to seeing how it unwraps itself!

hey hey hey! here's my Fernando! my humble apologies for a really late comment
as always, fun is you! it's in your work ... it shows!
for an idea, let the lighting paint your image, let their colours focus/illuminate your characters ... but at the sam time .. don't make it too dark either ... just balance it out ...
me very much looking forward to your next update! cheers my friend! have fun!

Hehehehe, so good, so, you told me many things about your band already, I think a black or aleast darker background would look great , it also would push up the light effcets so you can get a really moody stage for them to play.

I still think you could add a really weird ass piano some where.....
or an alien playing himself as an instrument.... Oooh no! betteer leave that alone..

I like the concept of aliens and humans making music together. Colors and lines have lyrical feel.
