Hello everybody!

So much time is left. I have to start now.

Because this is my first posting in this forum, I will first tell you, waht programs I use. Mainly I use Cinema4D. Additionally I have Zbrush but I'm still learning to use this program.
I'm not a professional. I only like to make 3d in my free time. And I think I will have a lot of fun with this contest.

My idea for the video:
I think about something like a learning video for aliens, in which you can get some flirt tips for human women or find out what you must not do.
Perhaps for example "you shouldn't knock your head on a human head. Under humans this is NOT a flirt ritual!"

Well, that's it for now. I hope I can bring you an update in the next few days.

Btw: Sorry for my really not very good english.

For the human part I started to make a new charakter. But I spent too much time on this. So I took Meg, a finished human out of c4d. Then I put on her clothes and some textures.
And now, the rig is also ready. I don't have much time. But I am very happy about having an extra week! :)

And now comes my alien who wants to know what to do and not to do when he meets a human woman.
He was made in Zbrush, with zspheres. Then I tried to skulpt him. But I have made some faults because I am not very experienced with that program. So much to learn... ;)
But I don't have the time to make another alien. So I textured him and made the rig, ready to animate...

So, here's now my storyboard. My clip is put together out of 4 scenes. I hope, you can see, what I want to do.

Now I have to hurry because the dead line is not far away...

Software: CINEMA 4D

OK, this is one and a half hour before expiration of the contest. And this is my final video.

Oh, I would like to have much more time to make many things better.
I had a lot of fun in this contest and wow, I got very little sleep in the last two days. ;)

Good luck to everyone! :)
