ALIENS

Space is full of all kinds of beautiful and fascinating things that could instantly kill us all.

Asteroids, gamma rays, cosmic strings. Recent discoveries, like the possibility of methane-based life on Titan, and the potentially habitable extra-solar planet Gliese 581e means we might soon be adding other living, breathing entities to that list.

But what will they look like?



Might they be gangly abominations whose every body part is an erect phallus?

Or maybe they will be titans of unfathomable size, hosting an eon-spanning jam session?
Azathoth.jpg




Or perhaps they may simply be a hamfisted allegory about racial intolerance.

    How very true. Fun Fact: If we weren't bogged down in the middle east we would totally be bombing space right now.

    Can I submit previously done paintings, or is that bad form?

    Generally the challenge threads are just a way to get people drawing, with a token vote at the end as a reward. Submitting something you've already done kind of defeats that.

    Which really I'm not sure why there isn't an rule that lays that out.

    It's a heartwarming story about an alien who travels across the galaxy to discover the joys of bacon but ends up finding himself.

    A good idea can go a long way, even if you're not comfortable with your ability.

    For instance: my weak school portrait of a semi-aquatic alien probably would've been more interesting had he actually been doing semi-aquatic things.

    If that becomes true, I might consider finishing mine up as well. What's the normal ending date on these contests anyway?
