NOT OF THIS WORLD

Most people won’t admit to believing in life on other planets. Many people however believe ours is not the only planet that evolved as it did. It’s quite possible the BIG BANG scattered “Life” throughout the universe.
As advanced as our civilization is we have yet to travel outside of our solar system so it’s quite possible the life on other planets may be having trouble leaving their own as well. Perhaps one of these worlds is similar to our own and has large areas of water and perhaps the most advanced species on that world would be the ones that evolved to live in or under the water instead of those who adapted to living on land.  Now, suppose the civilization living there look something like this:




For years we as a people have imagined how the life forms on other planets might look. Since I've decided the people on one of these worlds have evolved to live under water they would not for example wear clothing.





I imagine their bodies would be covered in scales similar to some of our sea creatures. This particular specimen has fins on her limbs for aiding in swimming and it would appear she can spend time out of water. She has a lovely tail and a fin that runs from just below her head and stops a few inches above her tail.



Her eyes would be adept at seeing under water and it would appear that her head is protected by a heavy shell like covering.







I have been a little heavy handed with the photos for this post in hopes I'd be able to show the way her coloring seems to change with each pose. The reason I photographed her with the back drop that I used is because I wanted to show you what the fabric that she was made from looked like before it was painted.

I'm currently working on her mate and hope to have him completed and ready to post by the end of the week. 

I hope you're having a wonderful week and as always, thanks for stopping by.
