View Full Version : Alien diplomat

Among my many unfulfilled aspirations is to be a concept artist, like Ralph McQuarrie of Star Wars fame. Can you imagine getting paid for creating aliens with 3 heads? What a life...

A alien diplomat, from the Retief series, almost qualifies for the fan art project, but only just--I'd have to draw the man himself!

This one came from drawing way too many WWII German uniforms.

Scanned pencil drawing, Painter 5.5 in water color mode.

Hey, I like this! I can see the WWII uniform coming through too :D
I, too, dream of being a concept artist. What an amazing life that would be!
I've mentioned this before, but I love going around all the game sites and looking at the concept art for each game. It's deffinately inspiring to see (for me anyway) :)
