Gonna give this a try - cool topic!

The idea will be some sort of camping/RV site with an unexpected visitor interrupting a meal. Maybe too ambitious with time left.. will edit if needed.

Very cool concept, I hope you'll find time to finish it. Very promising stuff

I want to get the alien set before the other elements, and it should look somewhat intelligent, not just a hungry animal. So I thought I'd do a version with some sort of space suit... 'cause nothing says intelligence more than a space suit. Not good idea... heh.

So I went back to do some silhouettes... going to mix a few of them on the next sculpt.

Thanks for the comments - Here's latest update, combining the lower right silhouette, with a bit of the original sketch. Not done w/hands - going to test out different shapes that will look good holding the baby.

progression:

frilly bits and quick color: not sure about the head shield thing - it may work better without it. Keep in mind that the fleshy fin things will be translucent, these are just zb grabs.

blocked out infant. right now the age of infant isn't really clear (not sure if its important to the pic), and the expression is unusual , but I'll try to make it a bit more clear on detail pass.

woohoo great updates, man you've been working hard lately
Very cool start on all characters, I'd say the creature's feet feel quite thick.
Nice progress, keep it up

roughed out last two human characters. I couldn't find good ref for the pleading man, so I'm going to make that character a woman, but I may go back... The old guy is the character in the foreground with the spoon and pan, so I'll probably just focus on the back view, depending on how the composition turns out. May leave the dog out too.

Should have done one for alien but forgot to hit record.
