Alien Lifeform Concept

A concept I made for a non humanoid alien lifeform. Bipedal with turreted eyes for a full 180 view of the landscape. The fore arms are atrophied, it uses a flexible and retractable "tongue" for grasping and manipulation. The "tongue" has simple eyes for sensing the lights of bioluminescent prey. Excuse the simple description, writing is not one of my strong points. :P

Fantastic artwork and creature design, kinda remindes me of something out of h.p. lovecraft.

The (main) eyes remind me of a Cygnostik, at least Barlowe's depiction thereof. The rest of it... well, it's an incredible combination.

This creature looks very unique and creative and did you do some of the artwork from StarWars

I think he took it from h.p lovescraft more then anything else

Great design concept. I love the idea of a prehensile tongue and vestigial arms :)

Surely you mean 360 degree view of the landscape? An excellent design either way!
mmfrankford's avatar
LOL yeah 360 degree. Thanks for the comment and correction.
xLapinasx's avatar
No problem. I really like the design, it'd be interesting to see more different ones.

I know this may be a stupid question, but how does it talk or communicate? That tongue seems like it would be a challenge to make sounds with. It's still awesome though!

I love this!
It has a really cool Men in Black look to it.
the detailing on the "tongue" looks really cool and disgusting.
I also like that little ring-thing that you have going on there. haha
But yeah, I really love this!
mmfrankford's avatar

It looks a little like something I threw together in SPORE once ^^
The "lip-ring" is a nice touch.
mmfrankford's avatar
Thank you. Your comment makes me think I need to revisit my SPORE creature creator and dabble in it.

If you haven't got it already, get your hands on the Creepy & Cute Parts-Pack. It's got a whole bunch of new animations, colours and parts.
