Illustration Friday "Legendary"

For this week's Illustration Friday topic of "Legendary" I went with a location that's pretty legendary- Area 51. I've been wanting to draw an alien for a while, so this was a fun opportunity to do so. The alien is a shout out to Pleakley from Lilo and Stich. This illustration took about 5 hours and was done in Illustrator and Photoshop.

Excellent! I love the homage to Pleakley and the grumpy old general in the middle.

Exquisite use of line and color as always...my favorite character is that jowly general in the human lineup.

Great stuff as usual! I like how everybody in these retro pics of yours is smoking. If you see movies from that time everybody smokes. The only thing that's missing is I think you give the scientist a martini. :)

Awesome work, Scott! Love the alien, looks like a real troublemaker. Good take on the theme, too.

I love your style. When I see your work I can hear the classic nasal-retro-narrator voice in my head.

Ray Ferguson said...

Absolutely love your stuff. Every time I see it I think why didn't I (or more like,"why can't I") do that.
