Imagine that it’s 1000 years from now on earth and extraterrestrial species are now inhabiting the planet. Paint what one of those immigrants would look like.
It must be a species entirely from your imagination. You can not paint any existing species or a species with a visual representation (in art, movies, etc.). Also it must be in a realistic style. Make believe that this is for a movie that requires ultimate realism like Star Wars. The immigrant can be any place on our planet as you want.

The way the deadline works: if deadline is on a Sunday and your image is posted on that Sunday 23:59 your local time it's a good entry.
In fact - as long there is Sunday somewhere on the planet your entry is ok. I will make the poll sometimes Monday evening my time (GMT - 8 ) yet I'll have a look at the last entries.
POST YOUR FINALS IN THE FINAL BURNING THREAD!
Remember to include your nickname in the filename.
About quality - as general rule: if your shapes and values are not decent - you are out. Watch proportions, perspective etc. we need perfectly readable shapes and coherent, consistent values.
BE PROFESSIONAL - only finished and good quality entries will be taken to the poll. Oregano and Daestwen (yay!) will make the selection.

Oh, hi Jake
thread's been posted for what, 30 seconds?
Dammit, you shoulda waited until I finished LAST week's CHOW. Now I already wanna start this one and I won't have the discipline to finish that one. >
'Cuz life is full of your regrets, and I should be one...
I think I'll try this one...
Star Wars required realism? Coulda' fooled me. I'm only half kidding.
Here in the USA, immigration is a hot topic right now. I can't imagine 1000 years from now when everyone's complaining about all the Uborz and Ërgáziles taking our jobs and healthcare. It'll be hectic for sure.

Hmmmmm... a 1000 years from now? Wow. Ok.
Ohh this'll be fun, I just hope i have the time finishing it.
This is my quick start sketch, I'm going something along the lines of classic italian immigrant meet a wierd cute looking alien.
Almost something along the lines of Tinny Tim from Futurama
Im in, called it
I'm actually really looking forward to this round.
Aliens and extraterrestrials are some of my favorite subjects, so I think I'll be joining in the fun
the first thing that I thought of was a book called 'The arrival' by Shaun Tan. Might be worth a look for reference purposes. It doesn't have any extraterrestrial elements, but it's about an immigrant, and the illustrations are amazing.
Anyways.. here's my quick little sketch. Was going for something a bit different. It will probably be scrapped though, because I just realised it looks rather cartoon-ish Ah well.
This will be a good pratice in painting realisticly. Hopefully I can get it done in time
I totally changed my plans :/ Couldn't draw it good enough, changed to the classical cabdriver, now we'll see how that works out
Some clarification to my take on the topic: 1000 years later, humans have long abandoned earth as an over-polluted, out-dated planet and moved on to newer, cleaner places, very much like how richer Americans abandoned cities for suburbs in many parts of America during the last however many years. Aliens moved in eager for opportunities, desperate to fit in. The earlier immigrants adopted the earth's ancient customs and traditions, and pretty much kept it alive in a fossilized state. Facilities aged up to several hundred years are merely patched and repaired instead of replaced. The new dwellers of earth wear a mix of earthling clothings across many eras, and took lower-end jobs such as gathering of solar energy, warehouse stockers, and basic maintenance mechanics for docks.

I started sketching a bit, I wanted to make a tall majestic being. Intelligent and peaceful. I thought humans are a bulky and rash, aiming missiles at almmost anything. This race complete humans with their peaceful nature and high intelligence.
Fast sketch. I think I captured a bit of the feel for the race.
Update! I sketched a bit on the body trying to find something that still is a bit fitted for living on earth climate without being to human.
Whats this with the traveling bags are they going on a holliday? I mean can you tell an immigrant from his bags?
Immigrants are just like normal workers, regular folk.

I wanna do a tentacle alien, he'll be humanoid but do they have to have legs?
so you basicly just want us to create an alien? Since its pretty imposible to identify any kind of immigrant just from looks alone.
