Alien Characters 01 by JakobHansson Alien Characters 01 by JakobHansson
A variety of alien character concepts based on quick silhouette sketches.

A few weeks ago I asked DeviantArt and my Facebook friends to name three numbers from a large number of alien silhouettes I had created. So based on the popularity voting i rendered 6 of the silhouettes into final characters.

I think it is very interesting how many different ways you can choose to interpret a simple silhouette. Some of these silhouettes could be fun to revisit at a later time and make new, very different versions. Hope you like the results for now!

Based on the original silhouettes the finished aliens are number 6, 10, 11, 14, 16, 18.

they are amazing. i watched the turorial and tried to do some silhouettes too, but they never come out like I want them to..
another funny thing is that, for example, number 10 is exactly like Ive expected it and i thought number 14 would look totally different (tubes on the back, etc.)
nice work. ;)

Thank you very much! It should be said I made around 40 silhouettes of aliens to start with (not that bad when it only takes 1-2 minutes per shape) and only picked the ones that I thought had some potential (or were not repeating shapes of other ones) - I also combined some of them to get the best of both. So it is a trial and error process. My advice would be to just continue and eventually you will get some ones you will like :0)

Very cool! I especially like... hmmm... all of them! (Indecision, my old foe, we meet again.) Nice frills/feathers/scales/something on the bottom middle, and I'm amazed by the detail in all of them, especially the top middle one.
