A lone space traveler becomes ensnared by a hostile alien creature on Mars. Things aren't looking good for the space traveler unless he can fire a few well placed laser blasts into the creatures central nervous system; otherwise, it's lunch time for the creature. ;) This was an old evolved sketch in my artbook that I thought had a nice composition to it, with a nice sense of energy and drama, not to mention I love sci-fi themes too. :) What do you think? Update: September 2, 2005 Moderator's Choice! I'm deeply flattered! Thank you Moderators! You made my week! You guys seem to appreciate me here on Elfwood, and that's why I keep coming back! Thank you Elfwood, and Thank You Thomas Abrahamsson for creating such a wonderful Place! Hey Mom! Look at me! I'm famous!

I like the creatures eyes. They make look more, monstery.

:-) Christopher 'Topher' Allen Shepard replies: "Heh, I dig those big, bloodshot eyes I gave him as well! Definitely a highlight! Thanks!"

Very cool picture! The shadings are awesome.

:-) Christopher 'Topher' Allen Shepard replies: "Thanks! Although I think I could have shaded this much better than I did, but who cares, it got Mod's choice anyway! Yee har!!"

Heh. The spaceman is wearing absolutely nothing except a singlet and a helmet bulb. A dare, perhaps?

:-) Christopher 'Topher' Allen Shepard replies: "Any good spaceman worth his salt always wears a skin-tight space suit, resembling a singlet and a lightbulb, in the hopes of meeting Martian babes!"

A very Flash Gordon feel to this one. I love it!

:-) Christopher 'Topher' Allen Shepard replies: "You hit it on the money man. I love Flash Gordon, especially the incredibly hilarious and cheesy 1980 Dino Delaurentis version with Sam Jones!Thx for your comment!"

This is great! lol It is very old school, but awesome in its own right. I love the personality that the alien has--great mouth too--and the detail you've put into this. Your description reminds me of Spaceman Spiff. Oh, how I miss Calvin and Hobbs. Congrats on MOD's! We need more refreshing compositions like this on Elfwood. Nice job. 2

:-) Christopher 'Topher' Allen Shepard replies: "Hey! We are from the same gene pool! You too bear the name of Shepard! Together we shall flock the sheep of the world towards prosperity and goodness!Spaceman Spiff? Hmm? I must investigate this character!Thanks for your kind words!"

Nice pic!I think they are both going to die...

:-) Christopher 'Topher' Allen Shepard replies: "Thank you! Your conclusion is quite possible! Perhaps, half eaten, the spaceman gets one final round off inside the creature's belly, dealing a fatal blow.Hmm that's morbid."

Shows why pulse rifles should be standard issue.

Looks great.
Congrats on the Mods choice.
