Work In Progress:

ok got the figure filled in. i guess now it's more urgent to design the outfit...

some more balancing required, also need to think about the extreme background.

Cool A! The metal accesories and the skin texture match very well. Plus, he seems to be staring directly at her bum. lol.

Hey, he look like Vin Diesel in Pitch Black!! Looks very good.

woooohoooo!! me think so too! really cool shading man! just a few things to pump up the volume ..
- since this is a outdoor scene, try adding more bounced light, both for the human character and the creature
- add a little haze, that will be more inviting and will increase the depth in your image
all in all .. awesome man!! looking forward to your next post!
good luck bro!

Work In Progress: sketch

not 100% sure which way to go here :

the human style clothes suggest asimilation of cultures etc which i guess relates to the brief pretty well.

however the more 'alien' outlandish outfit may look better.
what you think ? :/

I like the clothes on the left. As you say, it hints to something a lot deeper going on in the piece: She's not just a random alien he's passing, she's dealt with humans a lot in the past. Also, because those clothes are practical like his, it puts them on an equal footing. The more "sexy" you make her clothes, the more you just turn her into a sex object, and then the power dynamic becomes really trite and boring. (imho.) In fact, I'd suggest keeping the human clothes and giving her a rifle or a pistol. Then it really puts them on an equal power level, which I personally find the most interesting. But hey, that's just me, good luck with whatever you decide.

p.s. love the face "tattoos," hope you'll do more of that on the body too!

walrus > great, thanks for that, decision made
rifle, excellent idea. would look cool slung across her back perhaps. Would love to hear any comments regarding composition ( as it's usually my downfall ) cheers!

creARTo >hey thank you ! liking your paece mate.

Composition? It was fine before you added her. Now it's claustrophobic because you haven't compensated for her being in the frame yet. I'd suggest extending it out to the left.
