Probably the last of the pencil work. Any other drawing I will do in Alias Sketchbook or Photoshop.

The first of many wips. He started out as the superaverage man from Zbrush but he's off his training now...............8) I will be doing a lot more work on his hands and head. The rest I will leave only for reference since he is fully clothed.

A detail shot of the Alien so far. Still have to detail the feet and start his clothes.

Nice sculpting Brian. Are you planning on carrying some of that head detail through his body? Maybe his feet or hands could carry some of that nice detail. I always try to think of the feet and hands like another face, so much personality can be shown by them. Again, nice sculpting in here, can't wait to see some color. Keep at it!!

Thanks for the compliment and the CnC. Yes to your question. I tend to start either from the body and move outward or from the hands inward. He is actually getting some clothes so they should go in next. I already over detailed areas that aren't likely to show because of clothing. But once they are on I will revisit the exposed areas and work them up more. It really did feel easy to carry the detai into the leg area and such so I might forego some of the clothing in favor of his body detail. The concept sketch obviously isn't tightly set for me since I already changed the human character.

More detailing. Still need to finish the cloths and then paint him. Then on to posing him and some expression.

Hello Oz and thanks for the comments. I entered the competition late so I had to stick close to my original simply because of lack of time..........:D

If I have extra time before the end I will play with the composition a bit since I don't think the current one is all that effective.

Modeling and texturing looks awesome. Love the concept, if I understand it correctly. Are they meeting for the first time and shaking hands? I've just glanced at the thread, I'm gonna go back and read some more of your comments. The test renders look awesome too. Love the fat guy, and the alien has turned out spectuacularly! Well done. What program have you used for this?

Yes shaking hands is what the human is trying to do. The alien has another more athletic greeting. The foot over the shoulder while standing. So the human is risking insulting the alien because he can't copy the pose. My attempt at a bit of humor.

Some base meshes were made in XSI since Softimage was so kind as to provide a copy for us. The human guy mesh is a free one from Zbrush. So most of the work so far has been in Zbrush.

Thanx for the comments.

Interesting design and good flow in shapes!
This is going to become a nice "Interaction" between humans- and aliens form!
Keep up!

Gonomeish,

Great modelling and texturing. Love the closeup of the human and in particular the clothes. My only crit is from the image before that...the clothing folds around the belly don't seem to make sense...surely it needs to smooth out over the belly...hope that helps rather than hinders!

Oh, you're bang on with that. The same goes for the folds in the back. I will fix them after I pose the model. Thanxs

The human ambassador is unable to return the aliens traditional greeting at the risk of offending him.

If we were to meet an alien race for the first time would we even be able to greet them in kind?
