Sir Dimitrij Marufow,

Ha-ha adds more importance already:D

I love the colors, the background, the design, the human and alien relationship and very importantly in my personal taste the encouraging of peace and respect in any relationship.:wise:

Great to see that in this or other worlds deserve that respect…:slight_smile:

:applause::thumbsup: Congratulations!:thumbsup::applause:


Thank you a lot, Sir Axel :slight_smile: :bowdown:

I’m glad you like my image. I’ve been quite busy lately, I might as yet do some little final finishing touches to my image - we’ll see.




Very, very nice work! I love it!


Thanks a lot, Mark! I’m glad you like it :slight_smile:




Hey Dimitrij. :beer:Great work - nice strong composition - and I like the textures you have worked up in the background. Alien guy looks suitably alien! I now see how one goes about posting a tweaked final image after posting the final! :applause:


Made some last “cosmetic” changes to the image. Well, that’s it I guess.

Report X3H 39087

Exobotanist Erod Braskoor.

“We were studying the famous and mysterious silicon-based “sand corals” on Zwootik 5. I was taking measurements and tissue samples in sector Zeta 23 when I heard a strange sound behind me.

I turned around and saw an ethereal sphere of blue light only a few meters from me. The next moment out of the light stepped this strange spidery thing as if it came out of nowhere. After a few seconds of shock the voice of my suit awakened me out of my paralysis “Commencing defensive transformation stage one
” I felt how the suit began to transform and all I could do was to think “NO! Stop defensive transformation!”. I don’t know why I thought that, but when I saw the eyes of the creature inside the “spider” I knew, don’t ask me how or why, that there was no danger.

We approached each other in absolute silence. What could words express in such a moment? Even if we could understand each other – words fail in a situation like this; something else takes over, something infinitely bigger than thoughts and words. I know this might sound crazy but in a way I felt as if I was looking into a mirror, when I placed my hand on the transparent bubble of the alien’s environmental vehicle. We may look very different and yet there’s only one consciousness. Whenever we look into the eyes of another we look into our own depths.”


Thank you Rupert!:bounce: It’s really appreciated and nice to see you here :slight_smile:

Good luck with your wonderfull entry :slight_smile:




nice result. wicked! but elegant!


Hey Daniel! Thanks for visiting :slight_smile: and commenting! It’s really appreciated.


Love your entry


Dimitrij, I’ve been re-reading your story over and over again, and I must confess that the idea behind the picture is what I like the most about your entry. :wise: I think we share the idea that there is a common denominator to life across the universe; which is empathy and finding a bit of ourselves in every other living being.
Our images may look different, but the principle behind them is the same.

Much appreciation mate.


You did a nice work Dimitrij also with the story . Good Luck
