Late to this collection, but I commend you on your alien designs. I find them outstanding, and quite original. To be blunt I find so many "monsterized" derivatives of a humanoid form to be a little tiring and uninspiring. So seeing something unique and truly new that isn't simply taking humanoid physiology and making it monster-like in some form or fashion, a breath of fresh air (pr in the case of some of your designs—hydrogen). Hopefully you have not abandoned your "Exobiotica" project, and will continue to work on it and post more as you go.

Again, well done.

you have a awesome collection of alien drawings here, i hope to see more aliens, based on not just carbon, but silicon, sulfur, hydrogen, nitrogen and maybe all chemical elements of the periodic table.

What a wonderfully collection you have. I love your artistic style and the creativity shown in each of your creatures. So fun to read about each one! It is a beautifully gallery; keep up the excellent work and I will be looking for more from you in the future.

Thank you so much! This is the kind of feedback that reminds me that making art is still worthwhile, and I should continue to do more of it. I'll definitely be posting more soon, time permitting.

Your alien designs are so incredibly amazing. I love the amount of detail in these things.
You have the honor of being in my list of Top 7 badass artists, with my other favourites being Tolkyes, Luigi Serafini, thomastapir, ahaas, turbofanatic, and Transapient.
And have you seen my alien design template? It has a lot of tips for designing creative aliens.

Wow, thank you so much! That's quite a talented group to be listed in, and I'm quite honored that you think I am in their league. Nice template, btw. That's a pretty comprehensive list of the challenges facing a creature designer. I might suggest adding "predators and competitors", but I guess that would be encompassed in the category "Ecological Niches and Interactions". Very well done.

Thanks. Im happy that you like my template.

I have a few questions regarding your xenobiology interests:

Besides from low-gravity planets, have you envisioned other alien habitats like the surfaces of brown dwarfs, or planets orbiting black holes? Or something as odd and original like a tar ocean like that guy has done.

Have you designed any intelligent alien species with technology and culture?

Have you speculated about and depicted "exotic" alien biologies like silicon/glass-bugs, sun-dwelling jellyfish made of plasma/magnetic fields, or entities with a "biochemistry" based on quantum processes instead of chemical ones?

Which do you think are the coolest non-humanoid aliens in fiction?

Have you read sci-fi like LEO´s "Aldebaran" comics, Stephen Baxter´s "Xeelee Sequence", the books of Greg Egan, or the web-story "Three Worlds Collide" by Eliezer Yudkowsky?
