A "How to Draw" sort of thing of aliens and predators. I don't need it but it would be very useful is anyone has seen such a thing.

Given the relative obscurity of the subject matter I doubt you'll find an entire book about drawing aliens and predators. However, what you can do is just look at aliens and predators a lot. Consider buying some of the comics too (Dark Horse comics made a sorts of comic books based in the Alien and Predator universes, and in fact it was there where the idea to merge the two originated), and look at how various artists went about drawing them. I think you'll find there is considerable variety. If you're an artistically inclined fellow, you'll probably be able to figure it out on your own.

You find out on your own. That's what I found to be the best way. Sure it maight not be the absolute best at first but it will get alot better after learning your own style and technique.

Hmmm... I made a colouring book of my own photos for christmas gift for my friends few years ago. It's quite easy to do it yourself if you have photoshop or something and lots and lots of time. But you need to choose the right photos.

I see a great business idea here.

I do agree with what everyone else here is saying about finding your own style. It takes practice and more practice (I know many people are tired of hearing that, but it's true).

I did come across these two tutorials which might help. And I know how you feel; I love them so much, but Preds are such a challenge to sketch.

Good luck.

Yes they are! My bro is like t3h ub3r m4s73r (omg, leet!) of drawing predators. He taught me once, but it was friggin hard.

I would reccomend tracing them, then freehanding, like Dark said. That's how I learned to draw Constitution Class ships, but no one cares Sad *sits in a dark corner and sobs quietly*

I'm choosing to believe that by "my Slave 1" you actually mean "my Firespray".

No, I mean the Slave 1, which is indeed a Firespray, but it's name is Slave 1.

I highly doubt that. The Slave 1 is only as big as about 2/3 of the saucer section of a Constitution ship. And also, the Slave 1 ship only has the power of deflectors, whereas the Constitution has deflector screens AND an individual shield generator. Plus, the Constitution's photon torpedoes would rip through the slave 1 like a hot knife through butter.

Gah, my inner nerd is showing more than usual. Must...watch...sports...

Here is a guide I just made to drawing the Predator face, using the Human face as a contrast and compare tool.

Okay... It's a dog alien- they're the easiest to draw! Its not very good thought...

Okay step one... Start with the outline of the body and the head...


Get your arms and legs on there


Put on a little mouth detail... And the "Tubes" on the neck and belly


Carve in the top of the belly/back and neck, theyre basically weird looking ribs/spines


Outline the Legs and Arms to give em muscular shape...


Spine and Ribs!


Erase the bubles of the body, clean it up...


Put bones on the outside of the legs...


Do the same on the rest of the legs...


Fill in all the tubes with lines... Same with the muscular part of the legs...


Get the spine detail on the tail... Just a bunch of ribs....


Shade in the head and leave a couple bubbles for the appearance of light spots and gloss... Finished!



Maybe one of these days I'll do an alien face/drone or queen.
