Alien Eight by BillCorbett Alien Eight by BillCorbett
Update: 9th July 2010

I've replaced the old version with the newer version I painted for ImagineFX 56. It was a plain stone green wall behind the alien before, but now it has a little more life!


The venusian worm lord rides again!

This dude is full of serious personality. And bling. And those colors shouldn't work together, but they do. Love it.

ha ha! Aliens just inspires colour clashes :D But seriously I was inspired by the forties and fifties pulp artists who used a background green to represent venus.

Bill, the colors and textures in this are so fantastic, especially when the time frame is taken into consideration. I love the earthworm-like tentacles and the very faint design on the alien's face and neck.

Thanks very much, Yea I used one of Egyptian symbol brushes for that effect, thought it broke the pink up quite nice too :)

Very good, quite detailed for only 5 hours of work, thats how long half of my drawings take, and as you can see, they don't look near this good lol

Thanks, It doesn't matter what they look like as long as you enjoy doing them. I always suffer with the fear of failure where art is concerned, It probably stops me doing more 'daring' pictures :)

True I do suppose my friend. Thats why I mostly just make up my own stuff though, that way if it looks redicuolous I can just tell people that it's supposed to look that way lol And I don't think you need to worry about your work, your an incredible artist, you should try some of this "daring" stuff you speak of.

You know, thats a good life motto, I think I'm gonna start saying that. My old one was, "why do today what you can put off till tomorrow", but I think yours is better. And anytime, if I can ever help with anything just let me know.

Nice one, the symmetrical technique looks good, clever use of the different worm tentacles to break up the view, its less noticeable this way....

Really digging the rock work as always.....

Good stuff dude

Thanks George, I was toying with changing the background colour to more of an earthy orange... what do you think?

Hmm... I don't think that's a good idea; The colors you chose now help the figure pop, and adding a warm color would probably destroy that IMO.

If you do however, try keeping it subtle for a more natural look.
