I really like the 2nd one(top center), it looks very alien.

I love all 6.  Each is totally different but they all look like they could exist in the same universe.

Oh sweet, glad you think so. I was going for variety, but wasn't sure if they would exist in the same world.

I for one like the looks of the bottom left, bottom right, and top center alien heads, especially when I can imagine their evolutionary history;

Shard mouth (bottom left) is Obviously a predatory species with multiple eyes all around it's head and a hardened blue exoskeleton. This supports the hypothesis that at one point, they were NOT the top of the food chain of their planet and were instead a prey species to a larger and/or more lethal organism, as prey items usually have 360 vision whilst predators have a more focused sight range. The teeth appear to be like a sharks; breaking off when a new one is formed and immediately replaced by one behind. An ingenius use of these broken shards that could have helped with their ascension to sapient creatures may have been as tools and spear tips in areas where the natural resources are scarce.

Gamma-head (top center) seems to be an autotroph (makes it's own energy), as there is no apparent head for ingestion of nutrients and no apparant entryway for gases unless they are somewhere else on it's body. With 12 forward facing eyes, it has the likeness of a predator, perhaps in the past it was a carnivorous creature, but over time it has adapted to no longer require such a primitive means of energy acquisition. This supports the hypothesis that this is the most advanced species of the six presented, and with a far larger cranium relative to head size could certainly be intellects.

Nitor Capillus (Bottom right) is human-like in appearance, and likely in metabolic requirements, but the bio-luminescence suggests a far different living environment. It is likely their world is very dark, either by lots of cloud-cover on a hot-house world, or very far away from their sun creating an Ice-age like planet. Phosphorescent bacteria living symbiotically in their bodies would provide an excellent form of long distance communication, along with providing a way to see where you are going.

You're explanation of the Nitor Capillus was awesome btw!

Your welcome, glad you liked the ideas and the top right sounds interesting, and has a real world similarity if not in structure than in function;

Corrola spiders use the same method to hunt prey by using quartz crystals and vibration detectors; once prey gets in range it can ambush it and know precisely where to hit it, what size it is, and when to strike.



Feel free to make more heads! Challenge me to make their evolutionary backstory and possible insights to their culture.

Wow, that's really amazing, I didn't know there were spiders like that! 

I might move on to other conceptual ideas, we'll see : )

Very cool explanations! As for the Gamma-head, his mouth can ingest food through his mouth, which is covered by a membrane (perhaps as a cleansing function before any food reaches the mouth) As for breathing, he may have open passages else where or can take in air by other means. 

The top right design was based around sound. A skull structure that is sensitive to vibration providing excellent hearing and awareness. The other two heads are more decorative.
