This is my first ever entry on CGTalk and I'm kinda nervous. My Photoshop skills need a lot of work and .
Other than this image I did a few other concept sketches which I'll be uploading soon.

Feel free to comment. Thanks

I started this idea with humans and neochimps as the central theme but didn't have a reason for aliens to be about so I thought of an idea where these guys get stranded on an alien planet and the aliens welcome them as gods. Aliens were meant to be primitive but still sentient.

Then I decided that I don't really like the idea and wanted hostile aliens in the picture. So I decided these aliens want something from my protagonists like data in Brin's novels so I decided that the little chimp would somehow de carying that data but I'll talk about that later.

This is the final composition of all the characters in the foreground. I still need to decide what to do with the background.

Still lots of work.

Very interesting characters. Just work hard and you should be able to finish your idea. It looks like the Chimps and the Human are in a conflict with a mass number of Aliens. Maybe make it few less aliens so you have more time to work on the characters.

I decided since I dont have the time if I continue the old one it wont come out as I wanted so I decided to recomposition it.

I didn't manage to finish unfortunately. The idea of the story was that a chimp scientist finds a datascroll containing important information but they are hunted down. But they dont go down without a good fight.
