Hey all
My entry:
The relationship between aliens and humans always calls up images of science-fiction stories. So to stand out of the crowd I needed to think in another direction.
What about setting a meeting in the past?
And what could this relation be?
I tried to come up with a strong picture.
A gift look like a good idea.
The gift of life would be even stronger.
So the idea of some aliens giving a childless couple a child (make from their genes) would be a great idea.
My sources of inspiration were some classical paintings.

My concept: A group of 3 aliens are looking at the couple who are sitting kneeled down looking into and holding on to a floating cocoon).

I will post some more pictures later on, I have no idea at the moment how to add more the one picture.

Cheers and good luck to all,

Further work on the idea.
Now you can see how I tried to get a good pose for both figures. All quick sketches with a pen on crap paper. Also trying to get the facial expressions I need for the image.

Some artwork coming up.

A painting that worked as a source of inspiration to me.
The lighting of this painting is impressive.
