Greetings! I come from a far, distance, futuristic, present day science fictiony place... Part 5

It's FRIDAAAYYY!!! 

I hope you have either exciting or relaxing plans for this weekend.

I hope you have enjoyed these updates of the character designs for Paradise Aliens and remember you can follow the film's updates via Twitter: @ParadiseAliens

What psychotic killing robot would be complete without some aliens body guards. (that No Rules is actually a delicate flower - but I didn't tell you that).

Both 'No Rules' and the 'Alien Bodyguards' went through a lot of designs until we nailed them. Again - the ALien bodyguards, like the robot, would need to be people in costumes so I had some restrictions to work around.


Very tall and sinister there are two identical alien bodyguards in this film who protect the 'No Rules' robot. Not much else is known about these guys other than they need special space suits to breath.

I hope you have enjoyed these character design updates. I do character and concept work for comics, film, animation or even logos so if you have a project I can help you with just give me a shout: mikeyb@theartyone.co.uk

Well well... just when you thought you were safe reading these updates a psychotic killer comes along!!!

*cue: girly scream*

This is 'No Rules'. An ex-militery robot who has gone while and has decided he loathes all humans and has made it his sole purpose to kill them all. ...and he does this in a very clever and original way (no spoilers from me - nuh uh!)



 As well as my soft spot for Sci Fi I also have a soft spot for robots. I was hoping to go all out with this robot design but as this is a low budget film I had to be sure a man could fit inside this robot. There is CGI planned for the film... but not enough to digitally create a robot unfortunately. ...but hey! I kind of miss those more hand made, none digital alien/robots of yesteryear.

The final part of this 5 part Paradise Aliens character design update will be up (or in your inbox) on Friday. Feel free to enter your email at the top of this post to subscribe to these and all other news updates of my work and projects. (you can unsubscribe any time)

Happy Monday!

Oh dear... was that a groan? I best make this quick so you can grab another coffee and get on with this week.

Today's Paradise Aliens update is the geeky mechanic - 'Stella'.

 
There's not much to say about Stella other than things happen to her later in the film which will require a whole new design but you'll get no spoilers from me. Nuh uh! Chris Pinches wanted an "Oxfam Girl" look about her as well as a touch of the geek. She doesn't care too much what clothes matches as she's rather be under a hood of a car.
I enjoyed this character only because I have a soft spot for redheads with freckles. 

Look out for the next update on Wednesday (it's a KILLER!) and feel free to enter your email at the top of this post to subscribe to future news updates (you can unsubscribe any time)
