Contest 06/2013: ALIENS


  • Everybody likes aliens, and that's why this is our new contest topic! You can make up a strange creature or rebuild an existing one from a Science Fiction movie, tv show or comic book. Please mention in the title or description of your submission if you were inspired by an existing extraterrestrial.
    Remember your alien is allowed to look human, as long as another planet is its origin. But this might be pretty boring, so maybe you should pick a more intersting species.


    Examples: Alien, Predator, E.T., Alf, Marvin the Martian, Stitch, Doctor Who, the Transformers, the Blob, the critters, Superman, Chewbacca (Star Wars), Spock (Star Trek), Zoidberg (Futurama), Mintberry Crunch (South Park), Prawns (District 9), Diva Plavalaguna (the Fifth Element), Ming (Flash Gordon), the Na'vi (Avatar), Sil (Species),... or your own creation!

    Freude, schöner Götterfunken,
    Tochter aus Elysium!
    Wir betreten feuertrunken,
    Himmlische dein Heiligtum!
    Deine zauber binden wieder
    Was die Mode streng geteilt;
    Alle Menschen werden Brüder,
    Wo dein saftner Flügel weilt!

  • Yes, you can do everything :). Well... apart from a Joker of course. I hope there is no comicbook storyline that reveals him to be an alien.

  • Also, how about putting Game aliens from Metroid, Mass Effect, Doom, Duke Nukem, Contra, Heroes of Might and Magic (sic!).....

  • Sure, enjoy the freedom of this topic - who knows what will come next month :D.


    By the way: I finally updated the Hall of Fame. Sorry... when I miss it for two months it needs some motivation to catch up.

    TDC has a free wish for a new SP-Studio item now :).

    Is it possible to choose a background? I'd love to have a background from the venus project (they promote a resource-based economy instead of a money-based economy). It's about puttin our knowledge and technology intelligently together to improve human wellbeing and to protect the enviroment. The Venus Project is a non-profit organisation, so i hope that you're okay with drawing a nice background of it :artist:


    here is the pic:
