This peice has taken me a month and a half of working my butt off and won the attendee choice award for Best Alien at Dragon-con 2006. The bg is very complex and took longer than the char to shade and finish. This will be going to dragon-con, the first of 50 prints 11x14 size. I love my Tzir I would never short change him, this has taken all my creativity and artistic inspiration for a month and a half. I like all of it... the only thing i like the least is the light sources on the shading arent quite up to par with the rest of the piece.Char: Tzir, a telepathic alien, with no nose or mouth. The obsorb food/nutrients through their skin or injections, since all the neutrients they need were destroyed, by them killing the planet. In this pict he is repairing the ship, normally Tzir has hair but this was in his younger youth, about teens for humans. He left his home planet, his mother, and younger brother to go searching for his dad who ran off for unknown reasons.Maybe someday i'll get this story down. Its an awsome story. ok, enjoy.
