CHALLENGE BUILD #3: "Alien Zone!" -July 2012
Join to comment
 Group admin 
Conversation about the July contest should go HERE! Here's the challenge: (Monarth)"Alien zone! The task is to make an alien creature which does not possess the structure of a mammal (human or any other mammal), but instead has 1 or (preferrably) more weird body and/or limb proportions by the placing or shape of them. So no longer arms on shoulders, legs on hips and head on the neck, nor just the usual number of them necessarily. I want to see something completely different..." Here we go! Good Luck to us All!

Are you looking for something in terms of a Xenomorph ( http://avp.wikia.com/wiki/Xenomorph_(Alien) ), or something more like http://Felix-El-Gato.deviantart.com/art/Jel-eh-255223426?q=gallery%3Afelix-el-gato%2F32234883&qo=18 ?

Are you looking for something in terms of a Xenomorph ( http://avp.wikia.com/wiki/Xenomorph_(Alien) ), or something more like http://Felix-El-Gato.deviantart.com/art/Jel-eh-255223426?q=gallery%3Afelix-el-gato%2F32234883&qo=18 ?

Both are equally valid. On the case of Felix' creation, it still has human posture, but the hands and head create one of the treats we're looking for. Same for Xenomorphs they still have the posture of a mammal, but the tongue with teeth and lack of eyes is a trait making a difference to mammal looks.

I recommend you try to create a new body structure, where the placement, shape and number of limbs can be very different from what we usually see in the real world or in typical mocing. This is the one time the moc can look completely bizarre.

Are you saying a star-wars-like alien is tooo humanoid/mammaloid? This WILL be hard because creatures have evolved physically in a form that best allows them to obtain their basic functional needs within the gravitational environ that they live in! So... I'm guessing you want something more insectoid, arachnoid or ameoba-like? This is going to be a real challenge! :)

As long as you can keep the moc's appearance organic and alien-y. It's a great risk though to make the moc look more like a mecha rather than an alien, which may not favor your odds. Be careful with it.

Yup, the ones I've seen on star wars look way too human. (Except Jabba the Hut, due to his slug body) It can be whatever you just listed, but I recommend you try to create something new to their structure aswell.

*in best whiny voice* dang it... He took my idea... :/ but seriously I have gathered that the main thing for this challenge is to create something that is unique and unusual, in style, build and structure. So I think your idea would be fine.

I would say yes but you would have to check that each of the pieces have the color they were released with. It would make it a lot harder but if that's your thing you could try...Though its still Nathan's decision...
