Here is my sixth illustration for Inktober 2019. I made an illustration of an angry alien.
This is my fan illustration of a Tusken Raider from Star Wars. Also referred to as Sand People they are indigenous to the planet Tatooine. Moreover, Sand People always ride single file to hide their numbers! In the Star Wars movies, Tusken Raiders are shown as being extremely xenophobic and territorial, often attacking the outskirts of small settlements.
Starting tomorrow, I am going to make a few drawings for Inktober. Inktober is an art challenge that asks participants to create an ink drawing every day for the month of October. I plan on making two drawings a week. One a day is out of my reach.
This is an alien creature inspired by the 1955 movie, This Island Earth. I remember watching the movie one Saturday at my grandparent’s home in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. The film is full of campy elements, but it deserves respect as one of the more ambitious science fiction adventures of its time. Mystery Science Theater 3000 also used the film to great effect.
