Here is an example of the sketch (above) and finished product (below) of “Out for a walk” an illustration for an upcoming science fiction project. We are still in the early, conceptual stages of the project, but I am already liking where this is going.
So many things are in the works here at Aaron Siddall Illustration that I hardly know where to start.
Design sketch of denizens of Alpha Centauri
My buddy Joe Clifford Faust and I have decided on a collaboration. Dont want to get into too much detail at this point, but suffice it to say that it will be a Young Adult, Science Fiction story loaded with cool artwork produced by yours truly.
To the left are some of the concept sketches for some of the aliens. These grisly fellows are all denizens of the Alpha Draconis (aka Thuban) system. They are an ancient species with many subraces. As well as looking cool this also means that they are deeply set in their ways, and find concepts such as bettering yourself, warm-bloodedness and free trade as offensive in the extreme.
So expect lots and LOTS of updates, hints and teasers as this project progresses. While Joe is slaving away in his writers dungeon< I will be doing the same in my artists lair. So stay tuned!
