    WIP - Alien Parenthood

    A WIP of a mother and juvenile bipedal species as they travel across a lichen covered plain.

    I am going to color, but first I have to do a little more work on refining everything.

    Any ideas would be appreciated

    As I've said of your work before, love the "other-worldly" feel of your environments and creature design.

    The adults upper thign is proportionally slimmer then the childs. the childs leg anatomy looks like it works (except it's left leg is a bit short at the top), but the adults leg looks broken. I would also consider changing slightly the angle of the adults right leg, being striaght on like that is working against you.

    The mushroom on the right isn't balanced well. Stem is curved on one side, the bottom of the cap doesn't continue onto the right side. I would love to see more mushrooms at different sizes. In like a cluster.

    Very cool, me likey

    This is really unique and well executed. I love the heads, extended arms, and the information you recieve concerning the various appendiges and developments in these creature's maturation.
    Fer crits:
    robrov21's crit is pretty much dead on.
    I'd like to add that the ground infront of the creatures should probably be a little more detailed... bring out some shapes so that it isn't so flat. Perhaps put in some distant grey mushrooms far in the distance as well since both mushrooms look to be at the same distance from the viewer.

    Also, the far arm on the child shouldn't be so dark (or rather, contrasting), it draws too much attention to an unimportant area.

    Update

    Ok this update was completed before the crits were checked out, so tomorrow I will adress them. They are all valid methinks

    But to tide you over...

    Hehe, yeah the little one's leg looks busted huh.

    First of all, those creatures are great!
    As for the landscape i don't know, the mushroom on the right side is bothering me. Probably because he is placed partially out of the picture. It draws away the attention from the aliens.
    Maybe, like suggested before, you could make a cluster of them and place them a bit more in the center and in perspective to emphasize the vastness of the landscape.
    Overall the landscape could use some more detail.
    Cheers!
