Just Playin' Around! Flash animation. If you're on an IOS device and can't see it,.... bummer. Let's get on that APPLE!
How the Characters Evolved
How we get to the finalized version of our guys.
Bunch of different characters
Trying to find a look for the guys. Usually try to go in a bunch of different directions to see what might fit.
Getting in the ballpark with these two. Originally we were going to call the strip "Alien Blog"
Hey! That guy looks familiar!
The first drawing that really looked like who would eventually become the character "FIVE". This was the look we decided to use.
Playing with paint.
Trying some color variations.
Let's go with this one.
Landed on their purple-ish hue as a final color.
AND HERE WE BE!
We have arrived!
The classic gray alien
Decided to go for a variation on the classic "GRAY". Originally thought they might live with/hang out with an Earth kid.
There's the name!
We got the name, finally. Also decided, we would change the two main characters, instead of having them look identical. That way you have two distict characters.
Clothing makes the man.
We put the characters in their version of Earth attire to more differentiate them from each other more. Like a tie will help you blend in.
What's your name?
We tried out a bunch of names before we decided on "SEVEN" and "FIVE".
Really wanted to push the characters to look different from each other even more. Now it's easy to recognize them at a glance.
