Great images! Imagine them fairly close to the second image, just pink fleshy and about 8 beady black eyes

For me, the main thing is, I want them to be alien. Preferably not humanoid, and most especially, something without a "face".

Like the Half Life advisors. They're so perfect, I want to have their babies:

I'm no artist, but if you need fear inducing aliens, you look to Master of Orion's Antarans.

This picture is from MoO3. Sadly, in this one they look a little.... cuter?

Tell me what you think, if this is any X'lanthos-esque at all.

Interesting. I have some interesting pictures from video games I've played in the past that may work in conjunction with other ideas. Especially a game called 'Ascendancy'.

Something like http://aliens.wikia.com/wiki/Ascendancy ... mosian-jpg

http://aliens.wikia.com/wiki/Ascendancy%27s_Races Has all of em, some are really well thought out, but they are still a one-society race.

I'd put some images from G-Nome or Dominon: Storm over Gift 3 (both are the same universe) but its really hard to get pictures of the aliens.

Oh I know of some super-creepy aliens as well. http://lparchive.org/Darkseed/Update%202/start_026.png Or something along the Darkseed-sort of brooding lines.

Other less scary variants:
http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb2 ... 8AH%29.jpg
http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb2 ... 8AH%29.jpg
http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb2 ... 8AH%29.jpg
http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb2 ... 8AH%29.jpg
http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb2 ... 8AH%29.jpg

Its rather hard to find good non-human aliens really, way too many are just reskinned humans with a probuscis or two. Especially ones with a fully developed multi-aspect society.
