This is a very different way of drawing from my last piece. This is deliniating form with line. This has a lot more rules, though I surely broke just as many. It’s body doesn’t quite make sense and it doesn’t need to. This is a drawing, not a design for an alien. The helmet works artistically, but not practically. That would be a different kind of drawing with a different objecive. This is semi-abstracted and is as much about the lines and shapes as it is about the subject. It’s NOT about naturalism, in which case lines have to follow certain rules, though it passably resembles naturalism. I’m much more into the other style at the moment, so I wanted to wrap up this alien.
