The Day They Arrived by Borruen The Day They Arrived by Borruen
FULL VIEW NEEDED!

Their design is sort of an alien/angel/mech mix which , although not similar in any way haha, is based on the 'collectors' (enemies in ME2)

I wanted to give the viewer the feeling of not knowing exactly what the 'invaders' are, if they are either an alien ship, an alien 'unit' or whatever...the same kind of feeling the two guys on the ground would feel. About the guys, they don't seem terrified, that's exactly what I was going for, as the concept of the piece was that someday we got so f*#*ed up that some of us became desperate and started searching for anything that could help our kind, this scene shows the arrival of this alien species that some humans worship as saviors even though they don't really know what's the purpose of the 'invasion'

3hrs in CS4

the idea of something related to aliens was given by ME2 but the inspiration for the composition came from this amazing deviation: [link]


now the stocks!

The day they're arrived no one of us know where we are what they are...
We think about botany, ethereal form, virus, dangerous animal...
but now it's a new day and we have so much to discovered...

The..spaceships? are really amazing. When you said angels, the picture began to remind me of judgment day.

I'm not sure if it was intended this way, but I see a lot of moons in the sky so there's an earth like feeling, but also not.

The little figures make me laugh, it's just like a human to act like that. x)

Nice attention to lighting, you even have some of the cloud illuminated from the lights going into the air. I'm not sure what those thing are though, they look like floating piles of trash lol.

Wow this is definitely worth a closer look. I love they "aliens", and how you presented them in a way that's beautiful, frightening, and calming all at once. Not just a saucer and a lazer beam, haha.

Very nice job. I like the sort of apocalyptical feeling I get from the first sight :D
On the other hand you do not force a certain feeling on the viewer. One may also find this even soothing.
Great work!
