-First Contact- by aryundomiel -First Contact- by aryundomiel
this is an old idea, and finally I drew it the way I imagined it.
as the title says, it represents the first contact between one of us and one of them... nothing scary, no insect-like aliens or invaders from the space, just a little grey creature who's curious to see our world, and a little girl, innocent and free from all the prejudices grown up people have, they meet in a wood. no words needed, just a little gesture, touching hands, and a contact is established.

EDIT: ok guys, sooo many of you keep asking the same question, so once and for all I decided to answer: the question is "why do the alien/girl have only one arm and one leg?" ok the answer is because we see them in profile, and also because the light is so bright and also a bit hazy, that hides the other part of their body.

now that I answered to this popular question here, please don't ask anymore, I won't answer again. thank you

-First Contact- by *aryundomiel
The suggester says: Simple yet sophisticated, cute yet solid... ...
This is how a possible first contact should look like! A child, free from any prejudices and completely innocent, meeting a curious alien from outer space who just wants to learn from other life forms and experience new worlds. ( Suggested by JoeyJazz and Featured by gucken )

just seen your signature quote.nice.glad to have truth seekers in all walks of life,I love to talk,but shouldnt we all get along and value others insight like the insight we cant posses,due to our physical differences...in otherwords we both right,and it confirms the original statement of both good and bad..the question is now,Why are they here? Do you believe they are interdimensional?

humans tend to believe they're so intelligent and better than everything else, we see it in many movies, where the bad guys usually are the aliens. I think that we have to see the whole thing from a larger perspective, humanity has alway put itself in the centre of everything, but are we really in the centre of everything? we're a small planet on the edge of a galaxy we don't even know well, we are so primitive we still kill each other for stupid reasons, we still believe there are differences between people, we have merely explored our own solar system, said that, I think we shouldn'd judge. we ARE small, maybe at the eyes of a diffent civilization we're just funny stupid creatures to watch, or we're useful to repair their DNA, or they want to tranform us into pets who knows... we tend to divide everything into good and bad...maybe there are creaturewho don't know the difference at all. everything i know is that before making absolute assumptions we should know better

Intelligent life is at the center of lifes purpose,making self-aware beings at the center of purpose,Nature grows till the smartest prevail over strongest.The difference in people is not only personality,but chemical and enviormental,and we definitly are not smart enough to judge desicions where life hangs in the balance,because life is unpredictable,with chaos theory to prove..Big men gamble on the smaller men,to gain knowledge,while smaller men die in the name of science and spirit.In reality there is darkness and there is light,many shades in between,but also two eternally competative forces.thats where we get duality,and our words define things by what they are, and what they are not...Good and Bad are real,ill be the judge,because i know what hurts and dosent,its a physical thing,Not easy to measure,but real.

points of view your right,are your sure your not scared, of your own mind,face the void,and yourself,and you'll find the divine everyone talks about,Would you judge a whole religion on one priest,or a faith on one book,There is alittle truth and lies in every point of view,for they are all incomplete,And unity is what is keeping the world going round,down to every cell,a natural lesson...And our opinions make us,and seperate us,but when they are one,we make something else.Dream.

I believe we all have our opinions, we can think they're good or not. when I think of abductions I think of what we humans do when we take an animal from its environment we analize it, put a chip in its body so we can track its movements and analyze its life and study its behaviour and then send him back in nature. we don't think we're evil doing this, it's science. we say, but the animal may think different...we're the evil aliens that do strange experiments on him afterall, aren't we? it's just a matter of points of view i believe.

For the most part true, and we are realizing our folly(very slowly.lol), but maybe its shame,that has us terrified of meeting a monster as bad as we are,cause we know,what we've done here,and nobody wants the blame...Maybe they are terrified of us,they should be,givin the chance we would conquer them.

Is this a joke?
Have you even heard a single abduction story?
The Grey will take her into the ship and proceed to probe her; what's so cute and innocent about that?
20 years later she'll be pregnant at the hands of the Greys, in an abduction of course, not long after the Greys will return to take the baby from her womb...now you tell me, how is that innocent and cute?
I assure you in the field of regression and repressed memories, "cute" is the last word that would be used to describe such contact involving a Grey in childhood.

well when I read your comment I didn't know if to feel sorry or angry, but you know everyone is entitled to their opinion, and this drawing is just what it is...a drawing. a representation of mi idea of how a contact shold look like, and who said cute? i didn't, infact the next drawing I made was called 'abduction' with the same girl so you see, there is no "cute" thing here. what you say is true, but in my mind and on my drawings I can have the liberty to represent what I want in the way I want it to be.
