Really last minute entry for this contest over on dA. Pretty much just ‘draw an alien from Star Wars’ and that included beasties. And of course I chose one of the most convoluted designs of all creatures like I could’ve drawn a nice little Nexu but nooooooooooooOoooOooooooOOOOO I had to choose this spike-riddled crab.
It will primarily be an art-based blog but there will be a few text only posts. It will range from single images with descriptions to quick doodles and concepts to episodic comics to get a feel for what it’s like in the world from the point of view of different sentient lifeforms.
A lot of things will derive from Earth mythology (there are elf and mermaid equivalents for example) but I also have a sentient ant-centipede species that communicates through scents and do not have a firm concept on what chairs are. It’s all meant to be fun but I also want to try and make every as cohesive as possible within those fun boundaries.
Any comments or critiques about anything posted is appreciated as well, especially when it comes to the more scientific aspects since I am not a scientist by trade.
Any art I make that is Almicia based will be posted to the Almicia blog first and then reblogged to here from now on.
