An alien concept I've been working on in between jobs. I couldn't decide on his left hand so I made an alternative version. I figured that the guy on the left is a regular alien, and the one on the right could be a pilot, his hand helps him communicate with his space ship - sort of like symbiotic connection. Kind of like in Battlestar Galactica
Why would aliens even be bipedal?
Usually its explained that bipedal-ism is sort of the go-to evolution in the universe. Eventually everything arrives at that because it is the most optimal. Out of universe, its because fictional works have to sacrifice some scientific accuracy for a bit of relatability. Yes, all the characters of a scifi story could be vertically-symmetrical sludges communicate through slight body movement, but the audience would have 0 connection to it and lose interest.
DAMN, SPACE! YOU SCAREH!
This is probably the best alien Concept I have ever seen. I especially love the head design.
I want to use this for a game in the future
i think you shold put some colour on it ^^
I was thinking about that but I don't want to mess it up Maybe some day
I think these two would be jolly fellas. The eyes remind me of tarantulas that go peep.
Nicely done Sir!
