Reptilian-Insectoid Alien by Riyami Reptilian-Insectoid Alien by Riyami
A quickie redesign of one of my old characters, making 'her' more of a Reptilian / Insect hybrid alien type. Her skin is more scaly leathery than Chitin in most places, only the darker blue parts are actually HARD chitin plates and even then there's still some flex near the root.

Once again I have no idea why, but I like how her feet look. And as a twist of something I don't normally do I gave her the whole separating mandibles, all insect / snake like.

They normally don't open like that unless she's eating something too big or really angry though, Otherwise it moves just like a 'normal' human mouth.

I also was taking into consideration while designing her something that an actor on a TV show could plausibly wear as stage makeup / effects. Hence her mostly human shape / face / proportions etc.

Thanks for Looking!

This is really awesome! Any chance you have the male version as well?

It was just a one shot character concept, so I never designed a male version. Though it would probably look very similar save the male humanoid proportions and some reptilian/insect inspired gender dimorphism.

I'm not sure, she was more of a one shot character concept, but possibly.

love this alien concept might use the way the jaw splits open as a reference to a alien race oc I have.
