I've spent the past 3 days trying to model a head for one of my characters. I've started over from scratch like 4 times already. Its been a while since I modelled a decent head. I figured I need a decent reference first, so I tried to make a sketch of a face as reference.

So far so good. The mesh structure isnt too ideal, but since I this is intended for a still image I dont have to worry about animateable deformations.

In Comparison to my previous efforts, it certainly helps a lot to have a reference for proportions.

Just an idea for a Futuristic Firetruck.

I had to start again. But I think Im on the right track now.

Ok, got a little further. I'm gonna try and use this head as a basis for sculpt testing. (I've never done any serious sculpting before.)

Hi!
Die Augen kommen mir noch etwas zu hoch vor, und auch wenn du das gesicht nicht animieren willst, solltest du vielleicht etwas auf den loopflow achten, da das ganze dann einfach natürlicher wirkt und du mehr mit deinem kopf machen kannst.

Blender rockt!

Danke. Ich hab die proportionen noch ein bissi angepasst. Gut das das meiste vom Kopf von einem Helm kaschiert sein wird.

The head is finally starting to look decent. Quickly modelled the ears and added those.

In Science Fiction, human relationships with Aliens usually go one of two ways. Either everyone gets along fine like a utopia, or they're waging war on one another.

I tried to imagine what it would be like if aliens would actually live among us.Considering human nature, it would probably not be long before racial tensions and growing resentment towards the aliens would begin to surface.

When trying to come up with a concept for the image, I suddenly remembered an incident in 1992 in Rostock, Germany, where neonazis set fire to a building which housed asylum seekers.

I originally wanted to depict a grand scene, where firemen were attempting to put out the fire, while police clashed with rioters in the background. I wanted to put the focus on a fireman carrying an alien girl out of the burning building.
However, as time progressed and I got further into the project, I realised that I would have a problem with the framing of my shot. If the scene was as grand as I originally intended, I would have to pull the camera back a long way, which would distract from the fireman carrying the alien girl.
I did a few tests and started to strip away anything non-essential to the image. I played around with the idea of a burning cross or two in the background, but it just didn't seem right. Finally, I decided to surround them in smoke, using lighting to hint at the surrounding chaos.
