Peacekeepers final. by DESTRAUDO Peacekeepers final. by DESTRAUDO
Added some more texture detail and reworked a few sections. I consider this one done and done.

There was a feeling i had in mind when doing this. I has seen a bunch of pictures of american troops interacting with kids in iraq. And while the kids were always friendly you would occasionally see adults looking at the interaction with worry or suspicion. I thought it would be interesting to do something which would suggest a possible worry or suspicion on the part of the viewer about the aliens intention, simply by them being an alien.

It is good to see bug faced aliens not being colossal assholes or mindless killers for once.

freaky but i think contrary to human nature being 'different' as an alien it would probably mean that they would be feared too much to get near lets remember the human process to difference 1fear 2hatred 3violence the concept is interesting and children would be the best to take difference better but more often then not the ladder would probably not be so likely once again do nice piece and indeed a curious reaction indeed

Im really interested in the story behind this! is the earth being invaded by another race and the ant aliens are protecting us from the devastation that is to come? or are they invading us but showing compassion as well, this picture really makes you think about a lot of things, and that is why its a great piece.

In theory they invaded nothing. They really are peacekeepers, and in theory would have intervened with force in a large possibly world war to stop us wiping ourselves out.

Now that sounds interesting an alien race saving us from our own extinction! i like the concept its very interesting and it really pops up to me. Thanks for drawing inspiring work like this, also love the coloring it conveys the mood it was trying to achieve.

This is superb. You have done well to show the reflectivity and play of light on the heads and mouthparts of the aliens -- or, perhaps more politically correct, extraterrestrials or "foreign sophonts." I have also noticed that it could be argued the peacekeeper offering the food, itself looks tentative.
