TOPIC: The Arrival of an Alien Rockstar
Deadline: Tuesday, May 5th
First, congrats to kingkostas for winning the Street Fighter's Childhood EOW!
This week's theme is to design a scene depicting the arrival of an alien rockstar (on whatever planet you so choose) Is it a welcoming celebration for a Rolling Stone of a terrestrial society of the future? Has the rock star been exiled and is far from welcome, sneaking past Atmospheric Patrol in order to garner a performance for the citizens? Think about the purpose of the visit. In your image, try to tell a story. Keep in mind that if you don't want to get into any character designing for this round, a very distant bird's eye view of the scene might work in your favor so you wouldn't need to illustrate the rock star.
1. No, the alien rockstar can't be the Diva from the Fifth Element.
2. You must post at least once in this W.I.P. thread to be included in the finals thread for the voting poll.
W.I.P. Challenge: (optional)
This week's Work In Progress challenge is to pencil sketch two different alien rockstars. I think this would be an opportunity to show off some really cool ideas and bare stylization approaches, i.e. the alien's musical instrument of choice and costume, and also exotic bodily appearance.
Be on the lookout for next week's Industrial Design of the Week, coming to you shortly.
If you need more time to get your finals in, let me know and I'll extend the deadline. Good luck!
