The odd couple...

...couple of aliens, that is! har har The first one is a rather blatant derivation of one of the Locust Grubs. What can I say? I've been playing a lot of Gears of War for the PC lately. I mainly wanted to give these guys a sense of weight and mass, like the rather heavyset Boomers.
The second is an insectoid alien with tribal trappings. I really wanted to give these guys a distinctive gait due to their toothpick, flamingo-esque legs. I imagine they move in a strange, ostrich-like fashion. Their clothes and weapons reveal a primitive, yet unmistakably intelligent lifeform.

I really like the flamingo-creature.
So much character and the whole shape of him is interesting.

You know, I actually sketched a rhino head initially (sans the horn)--no kidding, that was the original inspiration--but then I changed the mouth and chin a bit 'cause the rhino one looked strange. Anyway, yes, yes, Yusuke, keep reminding me that I'm hue-ly challenged, I don't mind.

Heya Dude, Everything looks great. I guess I'll just have to live vicariously through you when comes to this kind of stuff.
