    ASK, AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE

    (Did this at lunch before I saw your comment, but it works, so hey.)

    They've been all bipedal so far because they are actually all part of the same project. I've basically given myself a design brief of "FPS Enemy, Humanoid Alien, No Guns". And also experimenting with process at the same time. Once I get one I like, I'm gonna do it up in ZBrush.

    Hah, nice! Zbrush's interface still gives me nightmares, but your aliens are well suited for sculpting. Are you planning to do a refined turnaround of whatever you pick?

    I like the spider, he's suitably spidery.

    Yeah, ZBrush is kind of a nightmare. I have an expert in the office though, so that will help! May or may not do a turn around, not sure. Their kind of boring, but if I think I have to I will haha.

    Here are some crazy colors! Probably too over the top, but it was fun.

    two more aliens, and a photobash head. I'm going to do some headdress designs on top of it.

    I suggest moving out of painting in symmetry after you hit a certain point with rendering, for human faces at least. Faces are more imperfect and uneven than we perceive, so the perfection creates uncanny feelings when you look at it.

    @Iruka You know, i don't really see it, but others have said it too, so I'll just paint on top a bit to break it up.

    Messed around with ZBrush and modo in-between overwatching today. much to learn here.

    An easy exercise is to take a picture of your own face (or take any picture of a person that's normally recognizable to you) that's as straight on as possible and mirror the sides. Some people have fairly symmetrical faces, but you'll usually always get an odd variation between the two mirrored versions of their face, and the original.

    Female celebrity photos with their faces all blown out are probably the place where you'll see the least variation. I personally think symmetry in faces makes them a bit stiff.
