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
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
. Now I want to really delve into their culture and fashion hahah.
These guys are my babies now.
