Refined Lifeform Drawings

Here is the first set of refined sketches. This life-form is based off of design number 91. After sifting through many of the ideas, I found this one to be my favourite because of the mix between warrior-like design, alien likeness and exaggerated “human” body proportions. Number 91 is only a bust sketch and I was excited to draw the full body version. I really like how this came out; the crown resembles the Egyptian God Osiris (as Ancient Egypt is one of my interests) the torso holds a large jewel and a lightning streak pattern across the body as well as protective spikes. The arms are very slim and resembles human proportions, including the five fingers, exept exaggerated. The legs are more animal like and the life-form has long flowing hair. With this design, I was mixing a variety of species and material (i.e instead of just skin and fur or a full armor body). Strangely and intriguingly on the side view drawing, the creature looks for feminine yet other aspects more  masculine, showing a genderless being which is quite interesting. Overall I am very happy with the outcome and it was interesting trying to think about the character as a 360 image in my head so I could draw a side and back view.
