    Alienating

    Trolljack - He looks determind & sad at the same time

    Gulldur - Way to think outside the box!

    AdrianNagorski - Bugs rule It'll be cool to see yours with some color

    Ironbyte - Getting a nostalgic 50's feel here...

    YouAreNotAlone - I'd go with the top one. Original


    Update: Making it more Alien

    So there are these aliens that while traveling the universe they found
    some really cute species who called themselves humans and
    they took some home and grew them for decorating and stuff...
    Not crazy about the alien's body at all, gonna revisit any suggestions welcome!

    YouAreNotAlone - I REALLY like the thought of your character growing plants within it's body, that seems to me like you could get some interesting stories and build up on that specific process etc. I like!

    Dscreet - You've certainly made it more alien like, good job. I love the mix of fuzz/fur with the insectoid skin. A personal thought would be to make the way it sprays a more natural phenomenon, maybe replace the canisters with sacs that produce the liquid and have external veins for transporting it maybe? Just a thought:]

    So this is my update, I've tried to make it less like a creature and more like a character with a soul.
    To that end, I've given it human like eyes, and a set of ears, bringing a more gentle feel and sense of awareness.
    The hardest part for me at the moment is trying to define it as a character and not a species. Further more trying to fix clothing onto this thing without it looking like a transport creature is proving difficult T_T

    Pixel - awesome colors

    Youarenotalone - i like the incorportation of the plant growing in the body

    Troll - I think you've succeeded in making it seem sentient, as to the whole make it seem like an individual than a species, he needs some sort of unique feature or mark or a face that portray's some emotion than just a straight no emotional expresion, use everything at your disposal, what makes people unique? However, i do feel at the moment it reads more as a Hunter/Gatherer

    Update! I found a few minutes to spare

    cool stuff guys, liking trolljack's and pixeltuner's designs at the moment, and awesome 3D models adrian!

    here's what I've been playing with, gonna try to just let loose and have fun with this one, still playing with ideas for arms, tentacles, etc...something for this guy to be able to manipulate, cuz as is he won't be much of a gardener. May also provide a set of tools and plants to go with my character sheet, just for fun.

    Update

    The staff is multifunctional, the top a stunner for wayward hostile plants who have come through decontamination. Studs buttons on the handle project different tool shaped fields along the spike, so that the gardener can switch between them at a touch.

    Think he needs a watering can...

    continue Great sketch

    Pixeltuner Looking good, love the colours and idea

    Gulldur Great concept for an all in one gardener

    YouAreNotAlone The lower sketch is my favourite

    DScreet Also like the insect design, makes me think of a mantis/wasp cross

    More later

    Thanks ironbyte. If the stuff is multifunctional, I would expect it to have some very interesting gadgets attached to it. Like some kinda electric charger thing to stun people, and if it's like a projector, there could also be some kind of memory unit or lighting device, you know.

    @Rob Powell: Great Silhouette. Love the tentacle feet

    @Doctor Digits: Awesome progress. Although the bug doesn't seem to be placed on the ground plain right now, with the horizon line placed fairly in the frame.

    @trolljack: I love these sketches, the poses are absolutely awesome. And I think the backpack is a great design.

    Drawing Aliens is just so much fucking FUUUUUN. So here's another sketch, about 2 or 3 hours or probably less. Thinking of an lizard while doing this. I think the body's not alien looking enough right now.

    Hmmmmmm.....I have like quite a bit of pencil sketch ideas, but can't really decide on any one of 'em. Maybe I'll paint them all and use whichever I feel like. Damn it Eofin, this topic is too unexpectedly delicous xD

    @Trolljack - great feel to your character so far, feels intelligent and relatable but not too humanlike.

    @Dscreet - fun angle you're taking on this, I see a lot of different bug influences there. Praying mantis, wolf spider, etc. An insect using insecticides, oh the irony!

    @Continue - I like where you're going with yours, unique looking

    @Ironbyte - #2 is great!!! Actually, #1 is too, and there's something awesome about a the whole alien robot gardner...hard to decide

    @Rob Powell - fun! reminds me of one of the aliens from Star Wars.

    DoctorDigits - Thanks! Added facial markings and a mouth to help with emotion. Though due to the shape of it's mouth, I think most of the emotion will still come from the eyes.
    I agree with the hunter statement, it's a bit of a fine line due to the nature of their term for gardener. What I've tried to apply now is a more medical feel, where it can apply vitamins, fertilise dying vine root's etc.
    P.s love the composition of your piece so far:]

    Continue - Thanks a lot:]

    Gulldur - Glad he's coming across like that! Thanks:]

    Whiskey Sour - That is highly disturbing haha, I love the idea though!

    Ok update. (Apologies for the terrible presentation Half done on PC, half done at a coffee shop on paper)
    I went with strong shapes and contours for the clothing, I feel like they fit the character now. Better than the more human like back packs I think.
    Redesigned the head to have an obvious bone structure allowing for brow ridges to help with emotion.
    Still working on the gardener aspect regarding tool's and equipment.
    The most I have at the moment is the bond between alien and fruit as they travel together. One protects and maintains, the other offers a source of food and water (and maybe fuel).

    well i dont really have a story fully made, but it comes down to this, in this alien planet gardeners have a very important role, because they have the capacity to transform nutrints into water from their bodies, so they are fully responsable for gardening the plants and trees because without them they would not had nutrients to survive and to make the water, so is kind of a cycle, between alien and flora, by nurturing these large trees they also sustain their homes in these trees...(ahh, and they are really the only way to have water in this planet, so thats why the planet appear somewhat dry...ts just a brief idea, never had much hability for sci-fi things

    Here is what I'm working on. I wanted it to be like a bug/plant hybrid protector of plants kind of thing that goes around spreading spores and seeds.

    More work on the armour

    Trolljack Really like the character, your sketches bring him to life

    DScreet Like the sac better than the cannisters, can imagine it glowing with motes of life/light

    warburton Hope you get some time on it, looking great

    Blankstate Like the third head best
