This reminds me of a bunch of things in one...very surreal. I see a chimp, lion, ant eater, some dignitary figure, and yes i said it. A futuristic Whoopie Goldberg, don't know why that comes to mind. Just does. I dare someone to stick their finger in that things mouth! Great work.
This is just what deviant art needed- I did a search of "alien" and after sifting through 10 pages of generic aliens or fan art from the movie, I found a good ORIGINAL alien to enjoy. Plus I also like the blending of new and old styles or concepts. Good job. Looks like it would fit in well in a Star Wars movie, acutally
If only Jan van Eyck could see this now... This is who you meant, right? (Iím not making a fool of myself, am I?) *sigh* Really well done, not a lot of people can get away with dark background like he could. You've apparently caught the style.
