Character Design Contest ♯61- Old School: Aliens

Ok guys, for this weeks challenge I want you to create an alien hero or villain. They can be humanoid or non-humanoid. No size or power limit, so your entry could be as big as a planet or as small as an atom,, as powerful as Galactus or just a cosmic prankster like the Impossible Man, it’s up to you.

As usual, no entry limit and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: http://www.heromachine.com/forum/the-heromachine-art-gallery/dblades-whiz-bang-item-dispenser/. Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

    fun fact: the Zaztic race is the only known Alien race to tattoo themselves!

  2. We finally made contact. They turned out to be awesome and very friendly. Some people say it’s not fair to convince them to do what humans aren’t really unable to do, but some argue that, to them, it’s just child’s play.

  3. Here is my first entry and my favourite:

    Just when earth thought it was safe…

    P.S When I exported it the sides were cut off a little but you will still get the jist.

  4. Why, you might ask, was everyone fine with Alien One, that upper-stratopheric hydrogen-extracting alien superhero, rescuing the FREIGHT train instead of the passenger train with 70 passengers when both trestles collapsed?

    Why, indeed! The three remaining boxcars rolled to ELEVEN FEET from smashing into the three-hundred-room hotel. The hotel was only about half full, but still–the insurance people say twice as many people were saved by the motel not being knocked down the mountain.

  5. This is the main bad guy from my universe. Meet Goat Face!

  8. A cosmic pest that destroys planets by digging through them and causes them to collapse in on themselves.

  9. Here’s Aekli, a “reptilian fae” from the planet Listri. She was banished from her home planet and sent into exile on Felinae.

  10. This charming Anthropologist is studying Humans, for her PostDoctorate research! She wears the suit to ensure humans are more comfortable around her. It has mixed results.

    Please do not put the links to you contest entries in the URL field of the comments, that turns your user name into a clickable link to that webpage. Instead post your contest url’s to the body of the comment posts. I Have been editing your posts to fix them, however I will no longer be doing so.

  12. Digging through my archive I come up with these fellas:

    The Croa are a reptilian species of shapeshifters which place covert agents in political, social, economic and military key positions on planets they have chosen for an invasion. These agents live for decades and sometimes even centuries undetected among the native inhabitants of that world and spy on their defense structures, sabotage any early warning systems and ensure in a variety of ways that their invading army finds ideal conditions on arrival. This of course includes terraforming by global warming, since reptiles are known to prefer a warmer environment.

    The Xi’bala are an alien species of ferocious warlords from an alternate (steampunk) universe where earth’s history took a change of course when an ancient nuclear-powered alien starship (without core) was discovered beneath stonehenge in 1886 and therefore the industrial revolution was altered.

    Atto’Jay Tujas of the Delphians (aka “Dragonhead”) comes from a tall and scrawny amphibian race which is capable to breath and spit fire as well as to “breath” under water and in vacuum.

    A’haz Tul’san of the Marusians (aka “Little Green Man”) is a runtish Humanoid with tremendous telepathic and telekinetic abilties.

    Sliyab Z’kai of the Oo’kuna (aka “Slither”) is a member of a reptilian species with enhanced strength and healing, poison fangs. Extremely agile and flexible.

  13. I could have sworn I saw a Yu-Gi-Oh! Monster among the entries XD

  14. @Quark- Which entry? I’m not all that up on my Yu-Gi-Oh so I wouldn’t have spotted it.

  15. I do hope this doesn’t mean someone (when there’s a contest, I check the images and not the names) angry because it wouldn’t qualify, but there was one which reminded me of http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Big_Eye .

  16. @Quark- Yeah, I see what you mean, but there is enough of a difference there to make me believe it wasn’t an intentional likeness.

    Anyway, the contest is now closed guys. The poll will be up shortly.
