Commision: Kist concept 02 by Zarnala Commision: Kist concept 02 by Zarnala
concept for :iconthe-brade: and his team for their alien species called Kist Ra'om

My first concept display the alien with their tentacles showing off and various skin tone/marking because the most striking features of this species were their head tentacles so I think these organs served many purposes in their daily lives and culture
Commision : Kist concept 01 by Zarnala

However, I have to change it later cause it need to be stick with the early concept that :
"Their tentacles are a source of shame for them, not a source of pride, because it'd be like a human exposing their genitalia"
"For the Kist, their tentacles are supposed to be flaws, these flaws give depth and shouldn't be a beauty symbol for them."
"Admittedly, it'd be an interesting challenge to draw their 'collar' acting like a hoodie and integrating into their clothing, but I hope the artist is up for the challenge."

I tried to give my best, I'm no fashion designer but I do like custom design

*Creepy voice* Mmmmm yeah, dem tentacles, so provocative!

You did a really good job with this, I liked your original concept and am glad that the species manager allowed us to keep the design for the younger and more rebellious Kist, along the still unnamed culture that split off from the primary one.

: o Very cool! Looking forward to what you come up with...hehe, it will be interesting to see the different spectrums of attire for the Kist.

Especially like the second and last female designs. The semi-transparent or mesh fabric idea would be great to elaborate on as it fulfills the description nicely. Especially since it's suggestive without being revealing, much like we (humans) are with our more private regions.
