This project presented a unique challenge for me. This is the first of 6 models I have to complete this quarter (That’s six in 10 weeks). I was doing this for a friend of mine at school (http://www.foejred.com/) He provided me with the brief story of the alien and his game and I took it from there. I started with zspheres to quickly come up with a base mesh. You’ll notice that the zphere mesh has no head. This is because i sculpted several different heads to show my friend Joey for approval.
Once the new hybrid head was approved (above middle) I went on to finish the sculpt.
I modeled a little scene for the character. Posing was done using the Zbrush transpose master:
You may have noticed his nut sack shrunk greatly, thank Joey for that 😛
