Alien Independence






The way I see it, Earthlings shouldn't be the only ones celebrating Independence.

Happy 4th of July everyone!
Happy Independence Day!

I'd like to take away this guy's freedom to wear tight shorts. I love it, Ken! I like how his smile's so wide that it changes the shape of his entire face into one big smile. And in classic "Chandler" style... a couple of extra eyes. I love your aliens, man. This is great!

Let's see, they probably have a different calendar year than we do and the odds of their day being the same length as are is next to nothing. They probably won their own independence from those one bigger, darker looking aliens on a different day than we did, too.

So my question is...

Why?

Anyways, this alien has about as much character as any other I've ever seen, very well rendered!

I couldn't agree more Shane! In fact after I'd finished (or at least told myself to stop noodling it to death), I stood back and saw that I'd created an alien Hick! The wife-beater t-shirt, the spandex!
I didn't know I had a style! I thought I had about 12. Many thanks for your kindness Shane!

Peter, my only thought was "Wouldn't it be great for 'everyone' to have independance?" Even aliens & Hicks. You pay me a very great compliment Peter. I thank you!

Tyler, I appreciate your enthusiasm! Thanks for your confidence.

Wow, I love the design of this guy, dang, you should work for George Lucas or something. Great work Ken!!

Adrian Ropp said...

More aliens? Haha... I like it, Ken. Maybe this is the alien from the movie "Independance Day". We should have been nicer to them.

Ken Chandler said...

Many thanks Taylor! I've actually dreamed that that might be a possibility, some day. Hopefully he'll agree with you.

I could see a bunch of drunk aliens in wife-beater t-shirts and spandex shorts trying to take over the earth. It wouldn't be pretty. Thanks Adrian! I appreciate your insights, and for your kindness.

The underwear and wife beater just freak me out. If you are going for horribly well-done, scary... you nailed it!
