creepy
the hands and arms touching the tree are very well done, feels realistic and something that could actually exist

Lovely rendering and lighting. The skin textures are just fantastic. Nicely done!

Wow, this is a great painting. I love the creature design and the soft focus effect in the background.

Wow, beautiful alien creature concept. I particularly like the color scheme for it (especially the teal colors) and it's reptile-like features (like the tail). It's hands remind me of an ai ai (tiny primate with big eyes and long fingers) and I bet you used several animal references (is that tail based off of a chameleon?). The head and face are interesting, alien and well done/ rendered. It's skin texture is kind of like a cross between human and reptilian skin. I do like that you added a bit of fur/hair on the back of the head and neck.

I'd probably would like to see a bit more of the hair on, say, the hind parts of the legs or something, just to add continuity so that it didn't seem like there was only fur on that one part (more my opinion than anything else). I'm having fun going through this piece, because you obviously have some strong foundations in animals and anatomy, and you did a great job in creating this critter in a way that makes it seem like it could actually exist. I'm paying so much attention to the creature that I don't really notice the rough vagueness of the background, so I'll skip it. Overall, it turned out really well. Keep it up. Great job.
