Enemy of my Enemy is my friend by TARGETE Enemy of my Enemy is my friend by TARGETE
This is a quick painting about 4 hours or less. I've not done to many sci-fi images so here ya go.
The painting is basically about one alien force joining forces with humans to defeat another Alien enemy. There are so many films and books based upon aliens invading earth and trying to wipe us out would be cool if we were invaded by Aliens who want to protect us. Sounds a bit like Transforner I know.

The film idea should be an Alien force invading to conquer us and use our resources to defeat their enemy but we prove a very tough race to beat and they realize that instead of fighting us they should join us and get us to help them beat their enemy. It would be a 3 part film trilogy. First they invade to conquer and we push them back. Second they try diplomacy but we attack not realizing they are trying to surrender into a cease fire and combine our forces. The second film ends with the coming of the other alien race which is made up of a much more hive minded blood thirsty creatures. The Third film will be about us and the first alien race putting aside our past and pushing out the other alien race.

You could even add a second trilogy or spin it off into books or something.

If you like that idea, you should try out the videogame called "Universe At War: Earth Assault." Great game, criminally underrated and made by the same people who made C&C games from Westwood!

It would be a nice change of pace, that's for sure.

I've had a similar idea... and apparently other people think the same way.
I admit that i thought the premise would be great for a co-operative combat race car game where players drive either allied alien tech concept cars (defense role) or scavenged and upgraded human vehicles (offensive role). The players work together as they run patrols together between two points, essentially running laps around a circuit, while the destructive aliens attack them.

Closer to Stephen King's Dreamkeepers. An excellent concept. With all the alien invasion movies coming out they should make one similar to this:)

i agree about the whole 'Humanity is being destroyed by a vastly superior alien race' thing being overused to the buggery. In most of my novels at least aliens and humans do work together and it would be nice to see more of it.

In the original Starship Troopers book humans teamed up with an alien race against the bugs.

basicly when doing sci-fi ppl tend to look at desing of machinery , you should have put more design into it , it's still nice , but it can be better :)
Treyos Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Very cool atmosphere in this one. I've seen someone else do a painting with a similar premise, but only once... and Transformers really is about as close as mainstream sci-fi gets to the concept. Your aliens look like they're more allies than guardians, though, which would be much more interesting from a story standpoint. I could totally write something for it, but I'd have to figure out how to keep it to a short story - I've got enough books in progress as it is. ;P

I like it, clever use of colours and light. Also the topic is a good idea. Alien forces which seem to invade the earth, but trying to protect us because a second evil Alien force will arrive soon... It could be difficult for them (the friendly aliens) to convince the humans that they try to help, the problem of being feared.
Also, I am impressed of your quick paintings as well.

A DVD about quick paintings would be cool. As I purchased all of your three current DVDs, I can say your first volume in which you show us your quick traditional concept-painting is helpful to get an idea of the steps. I know it's all about light, shadow, and shape.

A DVD (maybe a fourth will come) in which the topic area is only quick paintings (digital or traditional) is something I am very interested in.
As well as watching you drawing a pencil-drawing (could be also a great topic for a new DVD), ah, there is so much I could watch all the time.
