Transparent Headed Alien Lifeform by Qodaet Transparent Headed Alien Lifeform by Qodaet
Portuguese: Forma de Vida Alienígena de Cabeça Transparente.
Dry pastel on paper.
Random creation.

Partly inspired by the Cubozoa and the common jellyfish, but also with several original touches, I created this being mainly to practice transparency. An organ which serves as a brain analogue can be seen inside the head (the flower-shaped organ at the top of the head cavity). Indirectly connected to it (through some kind of medula) are the optic nerves, which end in six complex eyes (four of them are easily visible) that fill the circumference of the head, giving the creature a 360º field of vision.

Among the tentacles (which have sensorial functions) is a flexible tube, which contains the mouth.

The rest of the body might or not be humanoid. Who knows?

There's not much in terms of brain-mass xD

Not really, but perhaps the brain structure is better organized for a small area than what it'd be in a human brain. :)

Probably, but if this creature gets in contact with humans, the transparent head and small brain would make obvious excuses for misguided racism from the humans.

Yeah, humans don't need much to be racist or xenophobic...
