There are a num­ber of pro­grams that I use to jump-start my cre­ativ­ity. I’ll of­ten turn to Alchemy. It’s easy to use and you’ll soon be gen­er­at­ing in­ter­est­ing ab­stract im­ages for orig­i­nal de­signs.

There are plenty of op­tions that pro­duce dif­fer­ent ef­fects and I find my­self try­ing new com­bi­na­tions

ev­ery time I dip into the pro­gram. In­deed, I cre­ate some in­ter­est­ing alien shapes in just a few min­utes, us­ing the op­tions in the Cre­ate and Af­fect drop-down menus. Spend just a lit­tle time with this pro­gram and you’ll soon be hav­ing a lot of fun as you cre­ate your alien con­cepts.

Above: I cre­ate these ideas

quickly – some ab­stract, oth­ers more rep­re­sen­ta­tional. Left: I choose to work up one of my shapes into a spiky-look­ing alien crit­ter.
