Tap Challenge #91: Tribal Alien

Unread postby sampetersonart » Tue Apr 24, 2018 1:51 pm

Description:
The challenge for the next two weeks is to design a tribal alien. The challenge is to imagine an alien from another planet, though rather than being extremely technologically advanced they are from a smaller more primitive tribe. You can use a lot of creative freedom here to interpret what "tribal" on another planet might entail. Perhaps their resources or technology is simply different. Try to get creative with how their costumes, tools or weapons might differ from those on Earth.

Rules and Guidelines:
-This is a character design challenge.
-Approach this concept as if you were designing it for a video game or film.
-Any medium is allowed.
-WIPs can be posted in this thread and the final submissions can be posted in the "Finals" thread.
-Due before Sam's on stream review on Monday, May 7th.

One hour sketch, more work to do. My tribal alien will be part of a cargo cult that worships and collects items left behind by human explorers and colonists.

Quick alien design loosely inspired by Widowmaker from Overwatch. Now I just have to add the tribal stuff...

Preliminary roughs

Update:
I'm still not settled on the final design because this is basically an anatomical nightmare, but I like the 4 arm idea enough to wrestle with it some more CoolCat

Update 2:
Progress! I played around with muscle groups and tried to figure out at least somewhat believable way of attaching those alien-ish arms to the body, now it's a question of making it look somewhat aesthetic and designing some tribal accessories off of that.

Here is all the progress pictures throughout the week that I kept forgetting to post.

Edit: The pictures were accidentally posted in reverse order so apologies in advance.
