I've always chuckled in my head at the idea that having her tentacles tied like that is the only thing that gives her head a shape at all, and otherwise there'd just be a wiggly blob with tentacles instead of her head
Sexy and cute! People tend to make more fantasy pin-up than sci-fi, so this is a real find indeed ^_^ , though I love both. Considering to myself what sci-fi pin-up I have seen, both human and alien femmes, I have to say this is highly unique in both the appearance and design. While all of the various elements alone are not unique-purple skin, tentacles, pointy ears, humanoid body(that one is a "DUH")-the main elements that draw attention to me are the squid-like tentacles used for hair rather than body parts such as arms or back protrusions, usually if an alien of this type doesn't have more human-like hair they have crests or flaps or are bald or spines or hair with crests or filament hair, ETC. It is also interesting as well to see a humanoid life-form with tentacles at all, most that have them are not humanoid, or most humanoids have tendrils if anything like this. It is possible I have seen tentacles used in this context before, though I do not remember so it must not have been very memorable. I just realized that her pose reminds me not only of a smexy pin-up alien...DUR...but the typical poses of female agents on the covers of spy films. Interesting.
Thanks for sharing this interesting, original, and unique with us .
One thing though, you should make the image a bit bigger, it's kinda tiny .
