Hi! Long time no see!
sorry for my english.
every have fun time acade
see you latter~
really sweet concept alien. i especially like the patterns on the armor and how they come into such sharp detail on the right side. how long does a piece like this take you?
I really like your use of muted palettes. Awesome work as always.
You can work now and play later, or play now and work later.
Fun stuff as usual man.
The armor and color is great! those boobies...
- I think it's official... I am the world's slowest painter
excellent rendering as always
Lovely... Is she related to Dolly Parton?... J/K mate...
LONG LIVE YOKO KANNO!!!
those things look like pus filled sacks of boob-shaped skin, fucking gross man. and the fact that they're protruding from her neck doesn't help. nor does the fact that you were trying to make her look sexy... she isn't. she looks deformed and "puss-filled", almost as if you originally had a really hot chick design then decided to give her a completely ridiculous weapon that LOOKS like boobs, but are actually nasty acidic pus sacks that she can pop and squirt at her enemies...
aside from the extremely ugly and misplaced boobs, the piece is amazing.
i love your skills at rendering, i cant even come close to your skill level in that area, you're totally rocking it there. awesome design and color choices too.
sorry if i was blunt/rude, i just had to throw my 2cents out there.
i'd love to hear you defend your work. i hope you dont pull the "its my style" bullshit.
anyway, sorry again.
i'll move on.
I'm gonna have to agree with complete2 about the chest.
Awesome concept, and beautiful render style.
none of this makes ANY sense to me, whatsoever.
Fantastic as always. I'd like to know how you lay down color and work out a design. Could you post a work in progress shots for your next picture?
All the cool kids ignore my ketchook.
I like the design and the execution's great as ever, but those breast-like things ruin it completely. You really need to do something about this boob obsession my friend.
watch the perspective issues with the right side of the body.
Not bad at all, but the recent work i've seen from you doesn't compare to the stuff you've done before. Keep posting!
Happy birthday man!
And keep on rockin!
Very nicely rendered. The breasts form a sort of problem tho. Their shape are sorta deformed by the shading. I think you could do a lot, if you added a seam that would run vertically across each breast, would hint at the fact that she's wearing a "fabric" over her mammaries, and it would also strengthen the link to her undersuit, which is is the one covering her breasts, but the shading you've used for the cloth elsewhere and the breasts don't add up. Adding a wrinkle in the cloth on the breasts might be an idea too. Looking at the pic, the way you've drawn the boobs remind me of Masamune shirow a lot. Anyway, very nice pic.
Errator sum, mente obscura
Deportatus, in vacuum
Nigresvit nox, curro perdizus
Ceacatus lux, inhibet me.
I do not think that's cloth covering her breasts but copper plating...hence the highlights and the texture... Also, it IS his style and who can blame a guy with a large boob fetish :p
The breasts don't look gross, their exxaggeratingly hot, as is the rest of the female. I love alien's stlye (OMFG I said the 's' word!) because it is his style, and it all works fine as I see it. If he changed it he wouldn't be ALIEN anymore, and his stuff would look like most of what the conceptart style seems to be (in that a lot of people on this site look like they have the same style. Nothing wrong with that, but it gets boring after a bit....)
At the end of the day his stuff always gets kudos, always looks good. Style be damned.

Love your stuff Alien. You've got some interesting effects in this one, i have to say.
My work: [link]
yawooza..... she got some NICE per there....
love the design work. her face is very powerful,
and those arabesques on the armor are friggin` delicious.
lovely piece, as usual, alien.
very cool work man, i love the face and the armor rendering, design and decorations.I'm not too convinced about those strange highlights on the face and about the boobs...well i don't know if i like 'em or hate them, but i just can't stop staring at them
Do we honestly need this discussion in every single thread? It's getting pretty redundant.
I love what you're doing with your style lately, better then ever.
