Eloise and the Nebo Ljudi Sketchbook

1. Eloise front and side view before being abducted.

2. Post abduction Eloise, the costume evolved quite a bit from this point. In the final design I definitely took some cues from Prometheus, but I’ve always like the work of H.R. Giger.

3. First sketches of the Nebo Ljudi. I was going for a sort-of insect look. I also wanted to have the spine attached at the front of the head. The final design also featured a clear dome at the top of the head, with some sort of pheromone producing organ below,

4. This view really helps to show the fluid nature of the limbs, the idea is that they are boneless muscular tentacle type limbs. Although the spine is all wrong, it looks too much like a trunk.

Questions and comments are always welcome. And I’m always looking for next thing to draw so any suggestions are also encouraged!

  1. These are nice… I like the side view of the alien guy. That spine idea gives it a nice fluid curve from profile view. 🙂
