I had the idea to design an alien because I wanted to make something space themed. My thought process was to create what I think a cute alien would look like. This alien just wants to make friends, and does not want to take over our planet. I also decided to incorporate some space elements into the design (like the stars and planet) in order to emphasize that extraterrestrial look.
I am currently in my first year of college. Throughout High School I took multiple art classes, and participated in an art club. I've entered art contests before because I see it as a good opportunity to at least try and see what happens, so I was really excited when I found out about this one!
