    gluttonous alien sketch

    I did this for a dsg (please excuse the bad photo quality, hope ot get a nice scan of it soon) a little while ago and thought I'd post it here. It's just mechanical pencil so far, not inked yet.

    I might post more stuff later for feedback, I can always use it!

    As a pencil sketch, it is so fantastic I can offer nothing of use.

    As a scan, I think I can help. After you scan an image, open it in Photoshop and adjust the levels. One easy way is to go Image->Adjust->Auto Levels. (aka Ctrl+Shift+L). This will prevent it all from looking too light (I owe Merekat for that one).

    Another thing to do is (again, in Photoshop) is to go Image->Adjust->Hue/Saturation and take the saturation down to zero. This will remove the pink.

    Better values can be achieved by tweaking the levels manually, but this is a nice quick and easy method.

    Thanks, Dave, that looks much better! Hopefully soon, I can get to coloring the image, so it's easier to tell the predator and the prey apart.

    Hate to say it, but this is highly derivative of Derek Thompson's alien at the end of Men In Black 1. the big cockroach one. Its all very well done though.

    you should check out his site www.derekmonster.com

    This is straight out of oddworld dude. While a decent sketch, I would say thats its so similair that not to give oddworld a credit is borderline bad form.

    I did give Oddworld credit... on my site. Here, I was just posting it to get feedback in addition to my website, which is located at deviantart. (See link on the bottom of any of my posts.) I just did this on my own time, as a sketch, comprised of many things from scrabs to MIB to the evil genie drawing I did a while ago as a dsg, to a T-Rex. Here's the direct link to this particular image.

    I wanted something with 5 legs, and just went from there, really. I hope you don't think it's "bad form" that I didn't additionally mention it here. I'm an enorous Oddworld fan and have lots of fan art as well as lots of original concepts on my site, and with Farzad being my absolute biggest inspiration for becoming a concept artist, well, there's some influence in my work.
