Hey Brad, this alien is amazing! I very much like it. I think none legs more emphesis than last picture. You can make to legs similar of aerials. Good working in progress, good luck mate!

Hey Jeromoo,
Thanks for your suggestions, definately something to consider. I'll be texturing and refining here soon. I think I might use some of bumps on his back for the exhaust if you will.Thanks again.

Perhaps you can give it pincer-like hands to hold the hookah/shisha pipe. Keep going, Brad!

Very nice idea indeed ! I'm very curious about colors and textures. Sorry to don't be of much help right now but I don't know the first thing about 3d modeling (well maybe a bolean operation between a cube and a sphere.. ).

Hey Tiziano,
Glad you could stop by. Theres going to be plenty to critique as soon as I start texturing. I'll be looking to the community for help for sure. With the whole time element, I'll be mixing 3D with 2D to make it all work. Cheers!

Finaly I found your thread! It would be easier if you'd have a link to it in your signature.

Awesome modeling! Love the alien design - I don't know why but I love trilobites . The other alien also looks great, very unusual.

Keep up the great work

Cheers,

Dimitrij.

Hey Dimitrij,
Sorry I didn't have a link in my signature. To be honest I'm not quite sure how to do that. It would be very useful. Thanks for the kind words, i'm a trilobite fan as well.If you can point me in the right direction for the thread signature thing that would be great. Thanks again. Brad

p.s. Your entry looks awesome!

Brad, you need to go "UserCP" (user control panel - if you don't see it above go to "members"), then click on "Edit Signature". There you can write - for example: My Uplift Entry or whatever select the text and click on the the insert link (globe with a chain symbol) and insert the link to your thread.

I hope that I could help.

Cheers,

Dimitrij

The Shot

This is a very interesting idea. Make sure you play around with the shot so it helps tell the story..
