This is my idea for the challenge, a was planing to make a human kid eating Ice cream to, but I enter the challenge a bit late, let see if I can get the alien done.

Hey Juan Carlos, nice sketch and cool concept :D . I think the desserts are a totaly icon on any culture, and be great that you take that approach on your idea. Are many possibilities on it to explore the alien point of view on human ice creams :D Good luck!! Cheers mate!! :beer:

Am trying to do all the modeling in XSI, then do all detail and textures in 3d-coat.

Hey Juan,
I like your concept. Maybe you could put a kid in the background crying because the alien took his icecream away. Awesome work. Brad

Here is a simple render to visualize the character, Am going to make the tentacles more large later.

Oh, man! With a tongue like that I bet this guy really appreciates his ice cream. Nice looking ice cream!:thumbsup:

This is a fast render in carrara 6 only to play, still a lot to do.

05 May 2008, 05:47 AM
Looking good! I really liked your concept sketch and I'm sure that your final render will capture that feeling.

Go hard...

That tongue is disgusting! :) Nice job fleshing out every aspect of your alien's physiology. Good luck getting everything together and renderred in time for the deadline.

At last! I finish the alien enjoying an icecream. Yes, I know it looks very disturbing. I made the rest of the illustration in one day using carrara 6 and adding some detalis in photoshop.

05 May 2008, 06:48 PM
Very nice alien design! I like his/her clothes too!

05 May 2008, 08:43 PM
