    I appreciate what you're saying, Dahami, but I still wonder why the humanoid shoulders? Is there a reptile with shoulders like that, or do you think these creatures may have been poorly described?

    I'm pretty sure that no known terrestrial reptile has shoulders like that. It is, of course, possible for memory to be in error, or for something to go wrong in communicating a visual memory to an artist. The most recent image I posted was a sketch I did based on a drawing by a witness who I don't believe I've met, so there's that to consider.

    However, there have been repeated descriptions (including from several people I've met and spent time with) of a body where the musculature and skeletal structure of these beings are very close to human. One man said the body looked a lot like the body of Predator (from the Schwarzenegger movie), but with a head that was more like a cross between a man and a lizard. Very often people describe pronounced tendons on the neck, and heavier bone structure on the skull than is normal for humans, but otherwise the build is very human-like. There are many variations, though, and some are built more like the slender, little Grays.

    Also, some people think that the reptilian aliens are actually descended from dinosaurs, and come either from a parallel universe or some civilization that exists secretly on (or inside) this planet, or maybe they are time travelers. So who's to say whether they are truly extraterrestrial? No one can answer those questions, but we can draw pictures!

    You've done a good job of creeping me out, Dahami. I don't think I'll ever come back.

    Robert.B, thanks.

    kelly x, thanks. That's a great compliment.

    Dizon, I'm glad they had an emotional impact on you, but I do hope you'll return sometime.

    Randis, That's a cute little reptilicon. I'm not sure what he's saying though. If he's asking me to work more on my anatomy skills, that's a good piece of advice. Thank you. I'll always admire your ability to draw hot babes, and your quickies are comparable to the images I slave over for months.

    For alesoun and everyone who requested that I practice with some terrestrial reptiles, here are two pencil drawings from reference photos of Varanus giganteus, one of Earth's largest lizard species. They have a thick scaly hide, clawed fingers, and fairly well-defined muscles, much like the reptilian UFO beings.

    A good start, Dahami. Are you going to colour them and work them up into a finished picture?

    I'm not planning to take those two lizard drawings any further. They are just to show that (using reference, at least) I can do terrestrial reptiles. I think I did pretty well conveying the general body shape. Of course, I didn't add any scales, which is okay for monitor lizards (goannas as they are known in Australia) as the scales are fairly small relative to body size. I could never get away with that with a crocodilian. The who look of a crocodile or alligator is based on its large plated scales.

    This sketchbook is for reptoids and aliens, and any related practice work. If I branch out too much I guess maybe I'll have to start a new sketchbook at some point.

    I should mention that Varanus giganteus is also know as the Perentie.

    Mr. Dahami, you dont know the value that have these drawings. I have the feeling that your name is David, well I think it doesn´t matter .

    You are doing a really GREAT JOB spreading this knowledge, in the future people will be able to "understand" a bit more these drawings.

    Do not lose faith in your works, there will be people and -beings- who are going to do everything possible for concealing the truth, but, that´s becouse they are scared, they are losing thier power, and its ok...... the light always wins over the darkness.

    Every day there is more and more people waking up from this "dream" reality, in which they have been living.

    You are helping in the mission to raise human consciousness in this world

    -Please if you could, keep uploading extraterrestial material, it doesn´t matter if sketches aren´t well detailed

    I send you regards from Santiago, Chile. KEEP DOING AN EXELENT WORK!!!!


    PD: foregive my bad writting, English is not my native lenguage ^^.
