NOT OF THIS WORLD PART II

I thought I'd have had this fellow finished up a few days ago but for whatever reason it took me longer. I'm going to blame it on the weather and having too many other things taking over the time I normally use for working on my projects.

Here's the second of my Extra Terrestrials.....




At first glance he appears to have the same body as his mate but I can assure you this is not the case. He's much more muscular and has a heavier tail. Although his head is covered with a shell-like layer it does not in any way look like the female of this species and his coloring is paler than that of his mate.


Shown here side by side you can see that the female is much more delicate. (Shapelier too.)



The males tail is not only heavier it is also longer and joins his body at a different angle then the females.



Originally I sculpted three heads that were alien in nature but awhile back one of them was reworked and ended up becoming a Munchkin. That's the way it is sometimes. Things aren't always what you think they are.

I hope you're enjoying your weekend. I'm going to spend most of mine working in the yard. I know that many of you are getting tired of summer and longing for autumn but I have always felt that summer is too short. I could do without the high temperatures but I do love the sunshine and the green grass and having a garden to tend to. Our growing season starts rather late so I'm just now getting a few grape tomatoes and summer squash. In my opinion there's nothing better tasting than a tomato from your own garden.  Today I'm having a salad for lunch with a handful of grape tomatoes that are from my little garden.

So, enjoy what's left of your weekend and as always, thanks for stopping by.

Wonderful mate for the beautiful female. I think you are extremely gifted, my lovely friend. Enjoy that wonderful salad sweetie.

They are so cute together! A happy couple. :)) And I love to go out to my garden (the weeds are winning this year, however!). I love summer, but not the heat we've been having. We've been eating salads every night with our dinner, featuring our own maters. :) xox

Well they say every day's a school day, who knew I'd be learning alien anatomy today? :oD I love this guy's face, he looks rather friendlier than his other half!

He looks as though he is the wise man of the sea. I love the more muscular look.

What fun, this pair. I keep wondering if you planned the design or if you just kind of let them happen. There must have been some thought put into the construction of the tails. You have done lots of work in creating this handsome pair!

We have missed our garden so much this year...had a few tomatoes before utter destruction set in...heat and grasshoppers. Homegrown tomatoes are the best.

dearest Maddy,
Oh, your next male Extra Terrestrials!!!
Looks happy to be togather, aren't they♡♡♡
And I admire the way you said you love summer, the heat does exhaust me... I wish I like the outside work more, hehe.
Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Great Couple and the detail is great! Your salad sounds great.

This alien has quite a friendly face - I wouldn't be too worried if I ran into him unexpectedly! I agree with you about homegrown tomatoes - yum! Enjoy the last of your summer; in Australia we are eagerly awaiting the end of our winter - it's been pretty cold here, although not to be compared with Northern hemisphere winter.
Hugs,
Kayzy :o)
