I was reading a few discussions on the forum about Zurg being an alien yesterday, and I decided that it would be cool to do a few sketches of what Zurg might look like under his armour. In all of my designs, I tried to incorporate a few design cues from Zurg's armour to make the aliens still vaguely recognisable as Zurg. See what you think - some are very drastic, some are very alien, and all of them look kinda strange!

I started with the design below. As soon as I imagined Zurg removing his armour, I thought of the scene in Men In Black when The Bug bursts from his Edgar disguise. I thought it would be quite cool for Zurg to do a similar thing in a fight scene, though he would retain his lovely voice, of course. As you can see, the design is partially inspired by The Bug as well.

I then thought of the abundance of tentacled aliens in BLoSC, so I drew the design below. The legs were an afterthought - I designed the top half, thought it was too "Kang and Kodos", and added the lower body and legs.

For this design I went more humanoid... apart from the legs (two legs are way too boring!). After drawing them, I'm a little unsure about the arms, since he has a suit already. Perhaps Zurg is a battle damaged/limbless alien who needs the suit for protection and daily evil life, and the arms are a last line of defense if his suit gets destroyed? Who knows.

The final design was the stereotypical "tiny alien in a massive suit", at my dad's suggestion. You can imagine Zurg's voice crying for help as he hopelessly squirms in Buzz's hand!

Any suggestions or alternate designs?

Christ, that's scary. Spiders, my one weakness!

Actually, some of your designs remind me of a few official concept art pieces found in the Toy Story 2: Collector's Edition. They entailed many different ideas for Evil Emperor Zurg and I believe one of them consisted of a tiny alien lurking inside a heavily armoured body. I am not sure I can find pictures of these sketches, though...

It's interesting that they explored alien designs for Zurg for Toy Story 2 - the abstract robot design that they used in the Buzz cartoon storyboards for Toy Story is the only Zurg concept I've seen. Looks like I need to get my hands on The Art of Toy Story 2!

Anyway, I'm glad that you like my designs EEZ, sorry for scaring you though!
