Guy's Concept Art: Saurians

(Saurians as described by "Air Force Documents")
Saurians are almost mythic in science fiction. I think every franchise from Star Wars to Star Trek to X-files has a Saurian archetype. At one time there were supposed Air Force documents describing three types of "known" races. They described the Saurians with enough detail that it captured my imagination.

The clawed hands, the slight dorsal ridge on the head and the treestump-like feet were all in the description, but not illustrated in the renditions I had seen.  I also made the diamond-shaped head a little more subtle than often described. Below is the inked version.

Below are some of the visual inspirations I used.
