Redneck Alien

"George, those redneck aliens down the street are at it again! Drunk as skunks at twelve noon and screeching at each other right in the front yard! Just look at them! Dilapidated house, bare, lifeless lawn, spent uranium rods strewn everywhere. Five warp cruisers in the driveway and not a one of them runs. They've even got a rusted out old spaceship up on cinder blocks in the front yard. It wouldn't surprise me if they were cooking space meth in their bedroom! We'll never sell this place with them down the street!"

Based on a doodle in my sketchbook. I actually drew this one twice. Here's the first version below:


I finished the first drawing, stepped back and looked at it, and just wasn't happy with it. His pose was too static and dull, and his body just didn't look right. His head was OK though.
So I sketched him out again, giving him a lazier posture and a third arm for more alieny goodness. I liked the new sketch, so I redrew him based on it.

Drawn in Photoshop on the graphic tablet.
