Barack! yeah I know lame name :D couldn't think of anything!

anyhow here's my work in progress, I'm just about done with the basics of the head, going to add more detail and tweak as I go on.

any C&C would be much appreciated

great work. You can barely tell a difference between the low and high poly.

Design wise I think it could use a little work. Its essentially a human face with a few extra bumps and an extended back of the skull. I think you could push it to a more alien face without too much extra effort. Even something cliche like a third eye would probably help make it a lot more interesting. My advice: go look at some pictures of animals and try to incorporate pieces of various species to make it look a little more alien.

technically good, but design could be more interesting, very trekky at mo.

i reackon you should create some more surface detail by creating a bump in PS and converting to normal, perhaps a scaly skin or patterning.

you got it man trekky :thumbsup: all input noted

tweaked some, trying to get the shape of the head right, also I shrunk his eye sockets dropped his jaw a bit and made his head more plate, I think he looked a bit dorkish before.

At first glance it look like a cross between a Cardassian and a Klingon.
Very nice model.

He he . Nice design dude. Your normals are better and better. I have no crits at the moment other then that it looks superb.

U rocks dude ;)

Edit -> I take look a bit closer, and I have small suggestion. Maybe u will make some little horns on the top of the head. Will look more interesting in my opinion.

Take care mate.

I really like the design...especially in regards to the profile...a very strong's just the details when I look at it in the 3/4 view as you posted it looks kinda lost...I don't quite understand the bulges/indentations on his head?...if they are part of the skull formation then I would suggest making them more significant...all the same...solid start man..:thumbsup:

hmm, all good stuff here..

from what you guys are telling me and as I'm working with ZB more I know I can do better on this head, add way more detail and make it more interesting so I'm going for a re make ( at least on the high poly normal mapping mesh )

anyway update in a bit :thumbsup:

well another update, this time around I slapped in way more detail

I must say I like the expression on the first one better :shrug: what should I do :argh:
