OKAY SO I was doodling designs for one-off side characters for Space Station Level 7 and I thought it would be funny to make an alien Danny bUT I'VE BECOME TOO ATTACHED AND HIS NAME IS DORB AND UHHH EXPECT HIM IN MORE THAN ONE PAGE OF THE COMIC NOW THANKS :D
I was researching silicon based life forms and found out some interesting stuff!!! They would probably be crystal-y in their structures, and instead of having carbon dioxide as a waste product they would have quartz! So he breathes out little bits of quartz (he has a shredder-like structure in his throat that grinds it up so he can breathe it out :P) and he has lots of big crystals all over him, and everything on and in his body is a crystal, even his fur is crystals when you look at it under a microscope!
I also find it funny that they would probably eat rocks and minerals, so I drew him eating a crystal lollipop XP
It's also very messy to stand near him, since his quartz breath would cover you in sparkly dust and little gems making it look like you just had an arts and crafts accident :')
SURPRISINGLY this is the most human-like alien I've designed...
