So the Alien DLC for Keflings required a few special keflings that would be a specific character.  I knew right from the begining that I wanted to have some fun with Alien stereotypes and rip off a bunch of Scifi movies.  One that I knew I had to do was the alien design from the alien movies.  There was no way I was going to get the creepy vibe from H.R. Giger's work, and it wouldn't fit in the game anyway.  But if we were going to have an angry yelling kefling than I could certainly borrow from Giger's design for some fun.  I still wish we could have had the double mouth thing, but it just didn't work out.  Oh well.

I've been playing with a different style lately with this stuff trying to work a bit more like Nico Marlet.  His work on Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon is still the gold standard of character design and I figured if I could work a bit more like him, use the same tools and methods, maybe then a bit of his genius would rub off on me.  It's been fun working with the markers and pencils.  I know for sure I still don't have Marlet's genius, but man is it ever fun to draw this stuff.  Enjoy.

For the recent level we released for Wolrd for Keflings I was able to design a bunch of aliens.  talk about a fun project.  I have pages full of random designs.  These are just a few.  Obviously I copied a few designs from popular movies.  But that was part of the fun.  Who doesn't want to see a Yoda kefling?  Enjoy.

More Aliens

Here's another promotional image I did for the latest game I worked on.  This one was a blast to do.  I've always loved those cheesy b movie posters and this was my chance to do one.  I want to print it up really big and hang it in my house.
