View Full Version : "ALIENS" cg animation

03 March 2008, 05:03 PM
I'm helping a friend with a project he got dragged into a while ago with some shots they lost on an Alien fan film. Not typically my thing, but good fun playing with ugly things with teeth. The shot i'm doing is similar to the one in Aliens where Burk dies (backs into a doorway and greeted by a bunch of teeth and saliva) so just the head was needed. I may go in and make the whole shape later when i get a break as just having the head isnt much of a portfolio piece:)

Anyway this is a simple animation just to test the rig and dynamics etc. Modelled in Lightwave, detailed in Zbrush and back to LW for rendering. The lip will move less in the final animation by the way.

hey, very nicely done!...the only thing that was a bit odd was the head seemed to be not as round at the front as maybe it should be, hard to describe exactly, because it is rounded.

It's a great model though, and very nice effects, goes well with the sound too...looking forward to seeing more.
