They Mostly Come at Night... Mostly

I remembered, halfway through the morning, that it's Alien Day today, so I did a quick sketch as my morning tea was cooling down.

I quite like the idea of cooling tea as a timer for a sketch; a time limit forces me to draw without indulging in fiddliness, and means I can't hide deficiencies in my drawing behind detail. I also get a cup of tea out of it, which is a nice bonus.

I used to draw these aliens all the time, as I got a bit obsessed with Trident Comics' old Aliens magazine, which reprinted Dark Horse's comics. This is the first time I've drawn one of the creatures in at least ten years, I think.
