I had a really good weekend of writing and art, and I’m finally making real progress with the next Tomorrow News Network novella. With that in mind, today I’d like to share some new concept art:
I’ve blogged about these guys (gals…? gender ambiguous pals…?) before. They’re Hykonians. In the Tomorrow News Network universe, the Hykonians are Humanity’s nearest neighbors, and they’re not exactly friendly neighbors.
I’ve really struggled to pin down the look of the Hykonians. For a long time, I figured they should have glossy black, almond-shaped eyes. You know, the kind of eyes stereotypical space aliens always have. But this weekend, I finally came to terms with the fact that I just don’t like that look, and I went with this new “frog eye” look instead.
Let me know what you think. I really hope people like it. Just please don’t call the Hykonians “froggies.” In the Tomorrow News Network universe, that’s kind of an ethnic slur.
P.S.: And if you haven’t read the previous Tomorrow News Network novella, click here to buy it on Amazon, or you can read it for free with Kindle Unlimited.
