    Default Alien Challenge

    Hi everyone!

    I started this alien character a short while ago to brush-up on my Zbrush skills (or lack thereof) and haven't gotten back to it due to other obligations.

    You can all see what direction I went with my character, and I would love to see what other Zbrushers might do with my base mesh, so I am offering my Ztool to the community.

    Only one rule...Be Creative and Have Fun ! I can't wait to see the results!

    hehe i would love to join your challenge
    unfortunately i have a lot to do at the moment
    but probably i can show some kind of "quickie " during the next few days


    by the way
    this is a good sculpt
    looks quite good
    my critic would be that in some areas there is a bit to much going on
    i think those areas would need a bit more smoothing and a clearer structure ( e.g. the cheeks, or the nose...)

    i hope you can get my point ^^ it's not so easy to explain something like that in english

    greetings

    Yes indeed, do the quickie sculpt when you can! Any caliber of sculpt would be just fine. I look forward to seeing other artists interpretations.

    Wow I'm glad you like my sculpt, when it was on ZBC as a wip it didn't get many looks, so thanks a lot. It's nice to hear some positive feedback.

    Yes, I see your point about too much detail in some areas. It's hard not to get carried away in Zbrush because it is so easy to do so.

    BTW your english seems quite good, I didn't even notice!

    Good Luck!

    Here's an hour doodle with it. I really liked the starting shape of your model, HYDE, so I gave it a go. It gave some good inspiration! I liked your alien version too!

    Oh yeah, this is FUN!

    Joopson-I like your initial sculpt it looks like a great start! What an interesting approach to the original sculpt. Can't wait to see the finished character.

    KrakenCMT-What can I say...very cool creature. I love the lighting and textures. Would you be willing to share them? I'm glad the starting shape inspired you and happy you kept the cleft lip theme, looks cool.

    Keep 'em coming, this is a great start!

    I might have gone a little too far from the original concept but I had some fun.
    Second material is from Erklaerbar's superb material pack,
    I don't know who made the first material but it is from zcentral too.

    Too far?!? No way, it's very cool. The idea is to have fun and be creative, and you've definately done that here. The material compliments the sculpt quite nicely. Thanks for the fine examples!

    BTW I like the red one the best.

    I thought it would be fun to try out my own challenge, (can't let everyone else have all the fun, ha-ha) so here is my initial work.

    Anyway this is about 45 minutes of work so far...still have lots to do. I'll do more as I get the time. Hope you like it.

    Am I breaking the rules participating in my own challenge?!?

    Anyway, special thanks to Mahlikus the Black for the lighting and material. alien.jpg

    That's looking pretty good so far. Major upgrade! Do you plan on going further with it?

    Keep up the good work.

    The back view is interesting with the tube section connecting the head to the shoulders! How did you achieve it?

    Unhappy

    I don't want to detract from the challenge but I have a problem with my mesh and posted it in the "Troubleshooting" section of ZBC. If anyone is interested in helping out, the title is "Unwanted hole in Model" (sorry, don't know how to link it)

    Thanks for helping...
