    EVA - Alien Spacewalk

    Powerful Birrin societies have engaged in space exploration and exploitation for decades, constructing a number of orbital facilities, satellites, and launching several manned interplanetary missions. The critical orbital systems, with their relay of radio and television data, climate monitoring, GPS signal transmission and global defence, form an expensive and vulnerable investment by the major houses.

    Maintenance of these systems, and the manning of interplanetary vehicles, is undertaken by a politicaly independant astronaut corps funded by an investment pool of nations and organisations with interests in space. Paid well, the corps construct, salvage and decommission orbital objects on a contract basis.

    Seen here, a technician sets to work repairing damaged internal systems on an orbital antennae. The large impact-hardened diagnostic package has been integrated with the antennas' interface to root out faulty code or hardware for repair or replacement.

    This is so incredibly cool! I love everything about it, including the back story.

    Amazing alien design, and very believable space craft technology as well. My only problem is the multitude of cables that are positioned outside of the antennae. Wouldn't they have burned up on their up the atmosphere when the station first got launched? I don't think a space station would allow for exposed cables personally.

    Also, have you tried adding stars?

    cool cool cool cool!
    i like the idea that before developing space warpers and fake matter ships or whatever alien races would have once been noobs at space just like us, and wouldnt be surprised if some civilisation's tech from that early spaceflight era really was uncannily like ours. Suddenly theyre not (just) scary aliens, theyre people.

    You launch the vulnerable payload inside a launch vehicle.

    Long time fan of your work, Alex - I love the whole series of these guys. Your work has that feeling of book covers, etc from the 1970s, the works of Chris Foss, John Berkey, Peter Elson, etc... but with Aliens rather than spacecraft.

    I love it all!

    This is so cool. Love the sense of unknown that the critter is completely suited up, it's a mystery what's inside. The thing looks happy up there tinkering around.

    I love the design and details. They give the scene a very hard sci-fi feel and that's very rare in illustration. Judging from your previous artworks, it also looks that you improved. Good job!
