Alien Lights.
There was strange lights in the sky that night,
Zigging and zagging every-which-way;
Dimming then blazing, dark and then bright,
First black as pitch, then as bright as the day.
People were gathered at the top of the hill,
From all over town they came for the show,
Excited and eager and ripe for a thrill,
As the lights in the sky continued to glow.
I watched from a tree house a mile out of town,
With my high powered glasses I saw everything,
As the lights in the sky sent beams shooting down,
And the crowd on the hilltop started to sing.
They sang in a way, so eerie and strange,
T'was like alien music you hear on TV,
T'was a sound no composer on Earth could arrange,
And the sound that they made sent shivers through me.
Then the beams started glowing and fading away,
Getting weaker then stronger then sizzling the night,
The sound of the music continued to play,
Then nothing but darkness; and the night deadly quiet.
When my eyes readjusted to the dim and the gloom,
The hilltop was empty, not a soul to be seen,
The night was so silent, as quite as the tomb,
With the grass softly waving, where the people had been.
Half of our townsfolk were taken away,
And maybe they're gone to a home out in space,
And at night I go to the hilltop and pray,
That wherever they are, they are in a good place.

SUBLIME CINEMA #425 - THE 10TH VICTIM
Classic cult Italian socio-political sci fi; it inspired films from Battle Royale to the Running Man to Hunger Games via it’s Big Hunt storyline - and definitely inspired Austin Powers. Interesting to see Tonino Guerra (the greatest Italian screenwriter, Fellini and Tarkovsky collaborator) at the helm of writing this crazy shit. Ursula Andress and Mastroianni are decidedly camp but somehow perfect for these roles.

A commission I finished last night! I got the really awesome opportunity to design some sci-fi species for a client’s book/possible Tabletop game!
Say hello to the “Arlah”! This is one variation of the race of humanoid avians in the client’s universe who are the main pacifists of the universe.
This project is looking like it’s going to be really fun to do, and you all will be seeing more species I get to work on!

Some day I want to see a sci-fi production where the Nerd spouts twenty seconds of impenetrable technobabble, and the Salt-of-the-Earth Audience Identification Character is just like “well, shoot – it sounds obvious when you put it that way”, and proceeds with the plan without ever demanding a plain English explanation for the benefit of the audience.

sure, you want to include sexual dimorphism in your alien species, go ahead. I’m actually pro-basing your alien species off of existing species, because every life on earth evolved to fill specific niches. Your aliens could have evolved to fill similar niches and thus look the same as like, a bat or something
and as they say, life takes many forms, ed boy.
oh, but hey, the only sexual dimorphism you’re familiar with is like humans?? and all of your females are smaller, wane-creatures?

uuuuh, but what about species where the female is larger than the male??
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
what about species where the male is colorfully decorated?
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
or hell, how about when they look exactly the same?
Tumblr media
(as a side note, golden tamarins also practice “polyandry” where two males and one female raise the offspring together with the males doing most of the work, where’s that in my sci-fi Star Trek??)
There are literally so many configurations of sex, family structures, social hierarchy, mating rituals, and general evolutionary tactics to survival, the animal kingdom is rich with inspirational material. Please use it!
