Nice work on the colors.

There is some weakness in the lines though.



I pointed to the parts that stick out in my mind.

Why are the arms different lengths? Looks bad IMO.

What is that shadow behind the right tentacle?

It seems like you ran out of gas on the feet. They don't hold up to the rest of the piece.

It looks really nice; I really like the atmosphere.  Still, the way he holds his tentacles confuses me.  His left tentacle almost seems to be on backwards.  To me, it doesn't look like an organic part of him, if you know what I mean, kinda like he's not used to having/controlling it.

Cure! This looks very awesome so far. I really like the character and your color selections.

The only thing that throws me off is this:


His left arm seems too unnatural. Almost like he's put a "kink" in his tentacle because he's bending it too drastically. I'd say make that curve back a little more gradual and it'll be awesome.

the alien stands out too much from the background.

No, he doesn't? ??? I think he stands out just right in brightness.

However, I think the colors are much too saturated. If you desaturated the background a bit, you could make the character stand out so much more. Right now, it feels a bit as if he's fighting for attention with the background, colorwise. Subtlety can be very valuable.

Everything in the background is terrestrial, so there's nothing about it right now that says galactic to me, except for the alien. Is he on Earth or another planet? If it's the latter, I suggest changing the colors to make it look alien. You've already established that they're trees and bushes, which leaves some room for creativity, even if he's on Earth.

Your color ramps also seem random in how they change in hue and brightness. If the connection between two colors is not clear, it can make the image seem disjointed. Your brain has to try to figure out if they're parts of the same ramp or an entirely separate ramp.

Otherwise, I really like the design. Especially the asymmetrical head. :)
