    Default ALIEN H. R. Giger original

    Hey ZB fans, I thought it was about time to post here too, since my ALIEN related work would not have been realized without ZBrush.

    The work show here was realized over a bit longer term and is a pure fan-freetime project (kind of never ending) and shall be tribute to the movie creature ALIEN and of course to itīs creator H. R. Giger. He made Ridley Scottīs SiFi classic an undying piece of movie history.

    Most modeling was done in XSI, all detailing and sculpting in ZBrush, as well some polypainting. All texture generating (Displace, Normal, AO, Cavity etc.) done with ZB and refined in Ps. Final renders are all done inside XSI with Mental Ray and some post comp done in NUKE.

    Hope you like it and I highly appreciate C & C.

    Thanks for watching.

    Cheers

    Markus



    Final model of the original ALIEN on a Nostromo inspired standing base. The base should be a tiny homage towards the artists Ron Cobb and Chris Foss. They created the perfect counterpart with the man made designs of the Nostromo spaceship in opposition to Giger s biomechanical world.

    Many thanks. Yep, topology was is always important to me, because I wanna have best results while rigging outside of ZB.

    Thanks again and stay tuned for more.

    Thanks Sleepyhead, I highly appreciate.

    Here a few more renders of the ALIEN inside the Giger style Egg chamber or silo, as it was a concept before the eggs where placed inside the derelict ship on LV-426.

    And here some renders of the Egg chamber itself, filled with eggs, eagerly waiting to procreate

    I tried to get close to Gigerīs early concept painting of the Egg silo, as well incorporate the parts which where actually seen in the film. While the ceiling and the entrance tube are my own creation to complete the scenery.

    And here of course some ZBrush wip pictures of the different chamber parts. Keep in mind that many parts I just repeated in XSI (so there are not in ZB all together) and all tubings and lot of cable stuff was spline-controlled geometry in XSI as well.

    Absolutely amazing! I LOVE to see such great topology. In my opinion, there is no way to sculpt this well without clean topology. Even if you never plan to rig it or UV it. Very inspirational.
