For those unaware I tend to flip flop between the username Goatlactic AND familiaralien online, the origins being my main tumblr blog but that's extended to other sites in particular Flight Rising. The funny thing is after joining flight rising I learnt their are small creatures you can attach to your dragons known as familiars THEREFORE HAD TO BE MADE SOMEDAY!
I actually designed this guy which is drawn/shaded in a style similar to FR official art with the actual intentions of using it in a fake screenshot as a header on a shop I plan to make there when I have the chance.
As far as design goes I just wanted this alien to sorta be based on greys but have some alien anatomy to it including having six eyes and one leg. Also unlike greys that are as bland of colour as possible I wanted this fellow to be eye bleeding.
