Hi, Everyone!

The Idea for my Image is: Alien-father is catching his daughter in-flagranti with a human boy

I will try to make a Sketch, until then here's a try to describe how the picture will be
composed: Alien Girl and Human Boy will be sitting on the Backseat of a Car, Alien Father
is behind them and tearing the car's roof off Imagine the Camera is placed between
the frontseats and pointing at the couple.

Good luck to everyone!

Knowing your previous work, this should be a great image.

Really looking forward to your work on this one!

Good luck friend.

Thank you very much Conny, Mark, John and Andreas!

Some Info i forgot: Like always i use Cinema 4D for Basemeshes, ZBrush for skrew them up and the "Render Perfect"-Button in FryRender. I have started with the Boy to have time to reconsider how the Alien Girl and her Dad look like. So in the next time it's not impossible to see me doing unimportant things like the car-Interieur, haha

nice progress John!

For some reason I am not getting email updates from CGSociety.

But as usual your skills in modelling people inspire me.

Mark

Work In Progress: guy's head rendertest



Hi, here's a quick rendertest (rendertime: 4 Minutes) on the Guy's Head with my Skinmaterial and the Textures (Color, Bump, Spec) I made yesterday.

The Eyes are quickly placed, and everything Hair is missing (Lashes, Brows, ...). This will be done on the final pose/expression.

In the next time I will keep busy with the Design of the Alien. I have some Ideas about a translucent Skin, but the hardest will be a Anatomy different than humans.

Wow! This is really nice work!

Can you tell me a little more about how you made the skin texture. For example, did you use a photo, or did you paint it?

Hi!

@dustbin1uk: It's painted, but for a start I projected a distorted Photo flat on the head.
Then I completely overpainted it. Photos aren't that good as Textures, cause they
contain Lighting Informtion and so on. But they are a nice Helper as start and reference.

I used Bodypaint and ZBrush Polypainting for this.
The "Color Spray"-Mode in Zbrush is extremely useful for Skin Textures.

But the main Effect is in the Skin-Material I created in FryRender.

@nightwoodwolf: Thanks for the hint with the Ear I will fix that when the final pose and expression for his Head is ready.
