x.37 - the prophet

acrylic on Fabriano 300 watercolor paper 8" x 10"

The ballpoint pen doodle that led to x.37 was made while I was sketching through designs for the previous alien. From the beginning I saw a mystical quality in the character, and imagined it as a prophet of some kind. I set that sketch aside as the basis for what I knew would be the next extract from alien menagerie. Looking forward, the nature and appearance of x.38 is up for grabs. I have no idea what that one will turn out to be.
