I was watching the preview trailer for the feature-length Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov movie 9 (based off the 10-minute animated short by the amazing Shane Acker) and I was immediately brought back to my old drawing from last year, the war machine: [link] , and to a lesser extent, my cyborg monkeys from forever ago.
Now, because the trailer is sooo amazing, and quite honestly I loved the little connection to my own work (not a rip-off, mind you, just turns out Shane likes robotic animals with real skulls, too) I decided to do another, like piece, but this time with a rat skull. This is what came out. Drawn on Christmas eve. Wewht. No reference, except for the skull.
The Grays are real, but not from another planet. They are indeed from Earth and are multiverse travelers. They happen to live in a timeline where dinosaurs never died out. But they enjoy visiting our alternate timeline in which humans live and abducted them in their multiversal ships. Their testing base happened to be in the location on their Earth where Roswell, NM is on our Earth. Thus the 1947 crash was indeed their 1st attempt at multiverse travel that went extremely wrong. Earth's governments are helpless to these invaders since their technology far exceeds our own. We are merely lab rats in the eyes of the Grays.
Their culture is is very strange in comparison to humans. They not only do not care to wear clothing but are completely carnivorous. However they are not savage. They will raise small mammals for meat and egg laying dinosaurs for eggs. They are very inquisitive and love to figure out things. Their large skulls support a brain larger than humans. Their huge eyes can see in the dark very well. This is important since they are nocturnal. This is one reason why abduction happen mostly at night.
They have feathers like birds and are warm blooded. They lay eggs and put them in incubators. Females run things in society since they are bigger and more aggressive. The males are more colorful with bright blue feathers. They even do odd mating rituals like birds would with chirps and puffing out their chests.
Since their eyes are different from humans they use a neutralizer to wipe the minds of their subjects. They tend to look down at mammals and think they are inferior since they tend to eat their relatives for lunch. They also enjoy abducting livestock for an exotic snack.
As you can see they evolved from the raptor dinosaurs, specifically the Troodon. They lost most of their tail and snout but still have some claws even thought they are not used too much. They still have sharp teeth and have a huge brain. Their bones are quite brittle since they were once agile hunters. They still have the agility but must make sure they do not get hurt and break a bone.
When they make sounds they can make hypersonic sounds that humans cannot hear. This makes it seem like they are communicating via telepathy but really they are not. In short they are not little green men in the UFOs it is little gray dinosaurs!
This is a scene from later in the Facility story. I didn't add a background because it looked kind of cool on white, you can tell it's a dark scene from the shading.
Contrary to popular belief, Sick is not fearless, he's just better at hiding it than most. That, and he rationalizes a lot. But it's not very easy to rationalize a psycho inmate/experiment who wants nothing more than to rip you to shreds with his bare hands(?).
But hey at least Marten's having a good time :> He rarely gets to have any fun in my story.
Monsters are more afraid of you than you are of them.
The actual title of this work is: "A Recollection of the Destruction of Glorious S'lithik Hhai"
It is H. P. Lovecraft related, and the tale comes from Eibionic lore.
S'lithik Hhai was a primary city of the Hith, a race of serpent people who predated mammals by aeons. In fact, the Hith supposedly fed upon our ancestors. Their city was destroyed by an avenging god, which paved the way for humans to evolve.
and I did an exclusive collaboration on LiveStream. He drew this piece and I went in and colored it on a back to back live sessions. Turned out wicked and lots of ppl were there! Very happy since I used a completely different brush I was not so comfy with at first. but it had to be done, and done the METAL GEAR SOLID way!

Yeah I've seen Dagon and liked it but made this work way back before I'd seen it, then lost the original in a hdd crash and rebuilt the image here. This is actually the 2nd time I made this image. Thanks for taking the timne to view.
Don't hate me because I'm beautiful.
