Alien design based off of one of the alchemy sketches I made today in class. I think I’m proud of her.
The Art of District 9 - Early prawn concepts
Weta Workshop’s designers began exploring the world of District 9 in late 2006. At the time, little was known about the film, which was simply referred to as Project X among the Weta crew, but the earliest direction made it clear that it would be similar in setting and tone to Neill Blomkamp’s short film Alive in Joburg, featuring tentacle-faced aliens in a grim South African slum.
The stigmatized aliens themselves would be the first design task tackled by the artists, with a large team contributing ideas in an initial frenzy of conceptualization. The guidelines at the time were that the creatures should have tentacled faces and hands, and be designed with practical creature-suit wearing performers in mind, distorting the recognizable human form wherever possible.

Here’s a two hour sketch I put together when I got home from my english test. Trying to keep what little art mood I have up :’D
This picture’s supposed to be a more dynamic version of this: http://alien-colonel.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4cj3a5
Think I might have overdosed on the amount of red with this one.
I love Prawns! They’re my absolute favorite after the salarians. This prawn’s been in my mind for a while now.
A WIP of my quarian OC Karuni’Shel nar Gama. She’s just begun her pilgrimage and is terrified of aliens. I might develop her more later. 8D
Quarians are surprisingly fun to draw! Designing their suits and hoodies are the best part. I like quarians!
It’s just too bad that they’re basically pale humans with glowy eyes and a stupid ol face tattoo. BIOWARE U SO CREATIVE AND ORIGINUL
currently ALWAYS re-designing all (or most) of my characters. I drew my OC’s Hethamin and Mjäget. It’s been over a year since I’ve drawn any of them so it’s kinda cool to see them in my current style.
Hey guys. This is one of my many salarian characters. His name is Dano Sherder. His horns have been modified so that they merge together. That’s all I know about him for now :/
I need more salarians on my dash, people.
