Nubrian Concepts 1 by LassieCrumby Nubrian Concepts 1 by LassieCrumby
Commissions from :icontriple34: for concepts of the Nubrian race from the project "Secrets of the Kush Empire" (See their FB page here: www.facebook.com/pages/Secrets…
One of the most funnest commissions ever :D I got to design an entire alien race! Originally it was going to be just one species, but after I did several variations of the starting concept, it was decided that there should be multiple designs. This also led to an adaptation of the history of the race, which was cool.
The concept thus far is that all the Nubrians originally had one common reptilian ancestor. Over the course of millions of years of evolution, many many sub-species branched off and competed in the race for survival. Many went extinct, and as time went on, dominant species began to evolve to conquer different eco systems: The Land, Water, Air and Underground.
 Since they weren't competing with each other for food, territory etc. they gradually began to specialize in their unique environments for eons, all developing language, culture and technology. 
This of course makes their planetery society very different from Earth, as there are different intelligent species occupying all areas of the land. 

I think it's a really cool concept. Not only was I in the design process, I also had input on their history concept :D. Now I want to really delve into their culture and fashion hahah. :heart: These guys are my babies now.

Aww, hahah thank you so much ^^
These designs were all originally just scribbles, then the client chose what he liked best...sometimes it was pieces, like "That bit, but on this body" kind of thing. So that's part of the process of how they came to be :) Lots of experimenting

LassieCrumby Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I would like to, yeah :D Whenever I was drawing these guys I kept wondering to myself whether or not I should classify them as male or female. As of right now they're all genderless haha

Wow, cool characters. Am I the only one who thinks they look a bit like the warframes Nyx, Volt, Rhino and Nova?
Reply
:iconlassiecrumby:
LassieCrumby Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I've never played warframe o-o
*googles*
...I can see the nyx thing, since she's got a horn on her forehead... But I think the warframes designs are pretty different IMHO. XD they're wayyy more detailed for one hahah

Yeah but excessive detail isn't always a good thing, yours are way cooler imho.

These are some pretty cool concepts and I think you manifested them quite well! Especially that one on the right, I think it has good personality.

Aw, thank you :D
I'm hoping that in the future I can start drawing them in things like expression sheets, and interaction shots... I really really want to give them lots of personality!

You're welcome and doing some character work like that sounds really fun. I would love to run some exercises like that too, maybe when you start those, you can let me know and I'll do them also. Then we can discuss stuff we learned and help each other improve!
