When it comes to alien life, it is safe to say that there is plenty we don’t yet know… including how aliens go about their day! Time to let your imagination run wild and picture an alien driving a car!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a gray pencil, and use a ruler to draw a straight line, around an inch from the bottom of the page, ending around an inch from either end.
Use the gray pencil, and a drawing compass to make two circles above the line, one at the left hand end, and one around an inch to the right of this.
Using the tools, add two smaller circles just inside the larger ones.
Next, use the same gray pencil and drawing compass to create a third circle inside the two you have already drawn.
Switch to a black pen, and make two small circles right in the center of those you have created.
Using the same black pen, add three triangle-like shapes emerging from this middle dot, moving out and around the shape, almost like the spokes of a fan.
Then, fill in the outer ring with the black pen.
Fill in the spaces between the ”spokes” of the fan with the black.
Now, use an eraser to clean up the pencil marks, leaving you with strong, sharp lines – these are the wheels of the car.
Take a black liner, and draw a line around each of the wheels, connected with a straight line in the middle. Bring the line out slightly on either side of the wheels.
Turn to the left hand end of the line, and bring another line up, curving across to the right, and ending in a pointed” spike” at the top. Just to the right of the spike, add a small” balloon” shape.
Now, extend the line on the right hand side, bringing it across at a diagonal, up in a wavy line, and curving back across to the left, ending in a slight point at the top. Then, bring another curved like down to meet the ”balloon” you created earlier, and complete the outline shape of the car. Bring another line down, just below the ”balloon”, at a 45 degree angle, then curve this in, bring a straight line across the bottom, and curve the line back up, following the curve of the wheels. This will form the door of the car. Then, add another shape just above the original ”balloon”.
Just to the right of the door, add a thin oval shape, and place a smaller curve just inside this – this will be the handle!
Now your car needs a passenger – start by adding a slight curved line to the back of the car, on the top right hand side. The end of this should join up to meet the top line. Then, add a pointed, curved shape just above this, almost like a crescent moon, and extend the left hand line down and back up. Add a straight line emerging from the top of this, ending in a slight curve, like a shepherds crook., Finally, add a shape to the spike at the front of the car to create a windshield.
Now, return to the ”shepherds crook” shape, and bring a line down to connect the two ends. Then, add a line across the top to close the gap, and add a ”U” shape just above this.
Now, add two curved lines emerging from the top of this, ending in filled-in circles at the top. Then, add three fingers to the end of the arm.
Use a curved line to connect the two halves together, and add three shapes descending from the top – two triangular shapes, and a long, thin rectangular shape. Add a nose shape just below these.
Add a short, horizontal line just below this to create a mouth for your alien.
Now add another short line to the ends of the figures to create a steering wheel.
Switch to a gray pencil, and add gentle shading to the bottom of the picture, just beneath the car.
Switch to a cyan pen, and fill in the main body of the car, the arms of the alien, and the shapes on the top of the head.
Use the gray pencil to add color to the body of the alien – make the middle section a little darker than the rest.
Use the blue pen to add color to the windshield…
And use a pale orange pencil or pen for the nose.
Use the blue pen to add color to the rear-view mirror.
Finally, use a gray pencil to fill in the details of the wheels of the car!
The concept of aliens and extraterrestrial life is one which has long been a common theme of literature, movies and video games, and the volume of these materials proves that humans have long been obsessed with the unknown. This material has sparked an interest in all things extraterrestrial amongst sci-fi fans, and an increasing percentage of the general population are starting to get curious about just what might be out there.
As science continues to advance and develop, attempts have been made to make real, tangible contact with extraterrestrial life, in an attempt to discern once and for all whether we are truly alone in the universe.
Given the enormity of outer space, this seems unlikely; but just what would these aliens, should we ever meet them, be like? We know that there are planets in the solar system which are capable of producing and sustaining life – but does that mean that the inhabitants would be just like us? More advanced? Less sophisticated?
According to experts, the chances are high that there is other life out there, and that, should we make contact, they would be similar to us. Part of the fun of sci-fi is bringing these ideas and suppositions to life, and using creativity and imagination to peruse the notion of just what life beyond the stars might look like, and how interaction with creatures from another planet would really play out – let’s hope, for all our sakes, that any contact we do manage to make is friendly, and does not come with sinister intentions…
