About this creation

Ok, I totally ripped off the idea for this series from these guys, each figure is an alien bearing some properties or themes from his/her/it's homeworld. I intended them also to relate in scale to one another (the Venusian and Martian were smallish, the guy from Mercury tiny, Jupiter and Saturn's Visitors very large, etc) but the sizes got a little out of control. Unfortunately I got stuck on Jupiter; I wanted the Jovian alien to be massive and bulky but nothing I tried worked out so I'm postponing this series for now.

(There's not many pictures of each because they only really are finished from one angle; if you look to the side there's a lot of ugly supporting structure).

First up is Merco, the Marvellous Metallic Man from Mercury. Small, fleet-footed and made almost entirely of solid metal (bearing relation to his homeworld).




Next we have Vx Ui, the Veiled One from Venus, he is mysterious and shrouded in a heavy cloak, what is his true appearance? (Venus is covered in a dense cloud layer, no surface features are visible to the eye.)





And finally here is Myntoxx the Ant-Man from Mars. (Nothing specifically Martian here, he's more a nod to the classic green ant alien from old sci-fi movies and comics.)




One of two ideas for Jupiter that I scrapped:


I had plans for the rest of the Visitors: gigantic, bloated Jupiter, the vain Saturn, lopsided Uranus and so on.

Why not try your own Visitor figure? The alien must either relate to its own planet's physical/astronomical proporties or it can reference classic sci-fi or even the Greek Mythological name it bears.

(Posted while on my lunchbreak at work, yay!)

Nice figures, I really like them. To bad you could'nt get a good design for the Jupiter figure though, I'd love to see that.

Quite honestly, these things give me the creeps. So much so that if they were sitting on my shelf I'd take a baseball bat to all of them out of fear for my organs.

Those are splendid Shannon! I love the old school sci-fi feel. The scrapped one reminds me of an old sci-fi book cover from the 60's. And all of them remind me of some of those trading cards from the 80's. Garbage Pail Kids anyone? :P

These are all brilliantly cartoon-like, and extremely original, you have set down quite the style here.

That Aussie home-grown must be some powerful good stuff. I just love your retro style.~H

I love the head of the martian, and the visitor from Venus is awesome with those tentacles (or maybe a pet octopus) creeping out from under its cloak. Nice work.

The Martian one was KILLER! Loved the simple idea for the feet on that one. Just shows that no one does "funky" like you! ~ Chris.

Stunning. You know how much I love your retro sci fi stuff, but this is a real gem amongst your series. The martian's face alone is a stroke of genius.
