Over all I think you have a phenomenal grasp on facial structure and color story and blending. However even though it's incredibly well drawn I think the first and last aliens bear a little too much resemblance to some Star Wars aliens. That said all of your alien concepts radiate otherworldly beauty and originality while still having enough human like traits without becoming uncanny.In conclusion, your an outstanding artist but you just need a bit more originality. Perhaps do a bit more with avian or cat like qualities, or even fish like! Hope this critique helps!

Sincerely, Retro-Sushi🍣
PS. People like you inspire me to create alien species of my own keep up the great work!

This is amazing stuff

The first one looks an awful lot like a salarian, mate...
Nikolaspascal Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
that was 2012 when i was really into mass effect, buddy 
Bacxaber Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2017   General Artist
And that gives you reason to steal their design how?
Nikolaspascal Featured By Owner Edited Apr 12, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i don't make profit out of it, nor do I use it for anything, it's just something I'm practice when I starts doing digital art and sci-fi was something fairly new to me. It's more like an inspiration, a short influence at the moment.

The Asari with the typical "hot blue alien babe" is a design that has been used in many sci-fi media. And the Asari being an all female race, seem familiar?Oh well because that straight outta Star Trek with the Orion race. What about the Citadel that look too similar to Syd Mead concept art? How about the Rachni ravagers in ME that look very close to Droideka in Stars Wars? Do you want me to go on about Star Wars as well too? 
Bacxaber Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2017   General Artist
Asari aren't just alien babes though, they have that head fringe which is unique to them. Sure, anyone can make an alien babe, but if it has that head thing, they're copying the asari. This, however, is pretty much a direct ripoff of a salarian.
Nikolaspascal Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist

This is the "gray zone" term. Things that fall here are those you can't prove but somehow "looks" or "sounds" similar. They definitely share some characteristics, but nobody claim each others' work and both built their fandom/profit by themselves, standing as different works with no connection whatsoever. The truth is that everyone is somehow consciously or unconsciously influenced by things they see or experience. In a medium where tons of series are produced and written every year, always trying to fit the viewer's tastes and fantasies, it's inevitable that a few of these works will be similar in theme/design/atmosphere/plot. Look, most of the stuff you see in games and movies today has been invented ages and ages ago.

 Of course t
hat thing i drew inspired heavily by ME alien Salarian, but do the Salarian have eye stalks and pattern like that? If this is a direct rip off, then why didn't I keep the head structure the same too? You pulled one thing about the asari "unique" head fringe, could you tell me more why the Citadel design that look too close to Syd Mead concept art? You gotta cover the entire ground here.
Bacxaber Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2017   General Artist
"standing as different works with no connection whatsoever."
Bullshit! It looks EXACTLY like a salarian!
GuyGoneGood Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2017
Have you actually seen a Salarian? The drawing above looks nothing like one...
Nikolaspascal Featured By Owner Edited Apr 12, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i was giving an example of how many concept were borrow from each other to create different things in different setting, purpose and element, not particular talk about my drawing in that sentence. You clearly didn't get into a fair point with me here and haven't answer my question :) please don't try to guide the argument away by taking my words out of context like that.

crazy imagination. good ref 
JaySaysHey Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2016
This is really beautiful! Each one of the beings look very unique. One can imagine that they live on very different planets with varying conditions..
OliverFallsDK Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
Love these. Very cool designs and they all have an original feel to them :)
NFWar Featured By Owner Edited Sep 21, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Second one is a badass. Hands up. Only thing I can not to imagine about him, is how this horn sticks in his face upon unfortunate fall on a floor.
Nikolaspascal Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
He will probably angrily pick it up and let out an angry scream similar to a leopard gecko.
lowercase21 Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2015
The green one looks like zim
Cubesona Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2014   Digital Artist
These are all so unique and interesting! I'm so impressed by how varied these designs are, and how much background info you gave on the species.
2420768 Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Omg love the third one : D
mwf136 Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2014
I love the Elgok the most. Incredible.
Kitten-Whiskerz Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
The first one looks way too close to a Salarian from Mass Effect...way more than a coincidence. The only difference is the placement of eyes.
The-Wrath-of-Me Featured By Owner May 13, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
How does it look like a salarian?
The only similarity I see is a thin face.
Yale-A-Bowman Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2014  Professional General Artist
These are all very well thought out characters, they all have their own differences and you have obviously carefully considered their origins; the amazing variety of features and facial structures leads me to believe this. I really like these designs, they look fantastic!
Yale-A-Bowman Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2014  Professional General Artist
I just saw your background for each character attached in the info area, sorry. ;)

Szurkie is my favorite race among these four.  XD
TheQueenOfEmber Featured By Owner May 31, 2014
i wish I could come up with something as great as these guys! All I got is something similar to the Elgoks instead they have three pairs of eyes the two other pairs smaller then the main eyes and they have spike main thingy going down their spinal cord and a tail that can be used as a weapon and two twi'lek appendage thingies :I I want to add more but I don't wanna copy you

I agree, the Snesan ha an uncanny resemblance to a Salarian from Mass Effect.  Minus the location of the eyes of course. =)
Hopethefangirl Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I just got done looking at this and the other three, and I am really really impressed! Your designs are just beautiful. They look so natural and unique, and really pretty. Your artwork is just absolutely gorgeous, too! I'm really inspired and amazed, looking through your work. :)

I just want to huggle them all D:
Aonon Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2013
I like all of these very much. ^^ And I hope you don't take offense to this, but the first one, the Snesan. It bears a striking resemblance to a Salarian from Mass Effect, except the Salarian's 'horns' have been straightened and turned into eyestalks.
SocQA Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2013
Very nice design, each one of them :) Thanks for sharing!

All these designs are excellent! They could be straight out of some sci-fi movie/game.

They look a just like something from out of the mind of George Lucas.
