Abducted By Monsters by chrisbeaver Abducted By Monsters by chrisbeaver
I hope at least SOME people will actually look at this, but I expect most will simply check it off after DA gives them the fourth or fifth 404 Error... :confused:

This is an illustration for PAvP; it's a story about a little girl being taken from her home by horrific faceless aliens, and then at the end of the story it's revealed with the removal of a helmet that the aliens are us and the girl was in fact a Predator child. Pretty well-written, cuz you don't even get more than the slightest hint of this until the end.

I have detail-pics taken; if anybody cares enough I'll submit them.

PSP7 + MuRa's Cloud filter for the rust; if you compressed all the coloring into a single focused sitting it'd probably have been 8-10 hours. Remember, Beav likes comments :)

AWESOME! I love the irony in this drawing! Most would expect a blood-lusting Predator to fit under the "Ruthless Killer" category, but who would've thought? :3

Anyway, the twist put me in a new perspective. Thanks for giving me the privilege to see such a creative piece! ^3^

Meh, I know I'm supposed to feel sorry for the little Predator... but I don't. After watching the Predator movies all I can say is: KILL 'EM ALL! Dissect the little shit.

I loves it! ^.^

I had a dream once after watching AvP. In it I saw a yautja (predator) female iscaptured by humans after her ship crashes into the sea. The humans work for wayland interprises so they immediately want to start their horrible experiments. They bring her aboard the ship and keep her in a cage. The ship medic "Jen" is the only one who is kind to her.

Eventually, her mate, the predator prince of all things, comes to her rescue. Jen helps them escape.

Years later, the prince returns with his son and together they wipe out wayland industries. FINALLY!!!!

Reminds of another story I heard of 'bout a creature the size of a bus that was left on earth with a message, naturally humans killed the poor thing just before the message was translated as: Please take care of my baby. Goes to show once again that humans as race are asses.
The little pred girl's a cute one, wouldn't have thought of her dress though. Aside from that...I'd do the same as Predator-ellie. (quietly shreds the local human)

..the only thing that bothers me is the relative detail of the guys hand to the head of the girl...makes the composition feel inconsistent..

That cage and bg is godlike, though...what did you use to make it?

I noticed this too; still, it remained more important to me that the girl's face not be obscured since I wanted the emotional impact over realism...

Yeah. Maybe that'll be the sequel; she becomes the Helen of Troy for an intergactic asswhomping XD

Their logic's hard to decrypt though -- According to AvP2, removing a Pred's control-gauntlet triggers heart failure in the wearer once removed. It makes sense to me for them to have a countermeasure if removed (say, setting off The Bomb), but why rig it so it kills what may be the only Predator close enough to recover it? :shrug:

NICE!

Sir, the cage in and of itself is spectacular. I LOVE THE RUST. YOU WILL TELL ME HOW TO DO IT. XD The bars are very well done themselves, and have the feeling of form. The Pred girl is EXCELLENT. The shadows are deep and perfectly applied, even the shodows of the bars across her skin. Superb job man!
