This is what I could imagine actual aliens would look like, not just humanoids with some fancy features.

I must disagree.  These, despite their form, are living a seemingly tranquil and conventionally "natural" life; the humans barely seem to bother them at all, as if animals with no experience of man or freshly sentient beings without an opinion on the matter.  Gentle, familiar despite their alien-ness...  I love it, feel, art, everything, but this is the very opposite view of extraterrestrial life than Lovecraftian horrors!

Excellent. May I feature, with attribution of course, some of your work on my page Draconian Nights? You can view it here:  www.facebook.com/draconiannigh… plus.google.com/b/102655151224…  and darkfantasypics.tumblr.com/

I try to feature quality fantasy artwork, and I always strive to give attribution where possible.

I thank you for your consideration, and for sharing this wonderful art.

My first thought here -- after "It's a very graceful design." -- is the physics: Is this a low-gravity world? Are the alien bodies mostly air? If those bodies are solid, then there might be dozen elephant's weight in the larger bodies, all coming down through slender limbs into very narrow points and some fragile looking wrist/feet structures. These should at very least be driven a long way down into the soft ground by the weight, esp. when the other forelimb is lifted up. This is rather like the problem that human-sized ants would have supporting their own bodymass: As scale (e.g. length of limbs, 1D values) increases, surface area (2D) increases by scale squared, and volume (3D) and body mass increases by scale cubed. Suddenly the ant, with the same thin legs and muscles, has to support a tonne or two of weight. Make a 2mm ant 1.8m tall, you increase it's height by 900x -- but it's mass will increase by 729,000,000x. That's why dinosaurs were a good deal clunkier than these creatures are. It may be that their bodies _are_ mostly empty, and that there's no way to represent that visually, but it might be an idea that makes the design more interesting if considered.

Remarkable detail and such a fantastic and whimsical world full of things to explore and ponder. Hopefully those creatures don't get hungry all of a sudden and decide lunch has been served. Perhaps wearing some camouflaged outfits might be in order here! Superb rendering and congratulations on your great victory!
