Alien RAce

We had to design a character, a world, and a creature that was summarized in one image. It was up to each of us what kind of world we wanted to present.

I ❤ Aliens

For the humanoids, I thought "Bat + Orc + Dwarf = Burly Space Dudes who can handle my Beasts". I wanted to represent a large beast of burden and spent time reworking the design to make the scale clear.

Playing with Tusks

I started with a creature that was based off elephants and oxen. I experimented with the mix of animal features until I made something that I felt looked alien. I did quick iterations to play with details.

Setting the Scene

Not wanting to muddy the scale with tall trees or heavy foliage, I took it along a Savannah / Hoodoos direction.

A bit of drama

To give the scene a touch of drama, I came up with the idea of having a runaway caravan worker hiding in the foreground.
