Work In Progress: Embryo



This is my first sketch of a mother and her unborn baby. What she doesnt know is that her baby is not from this planet.

Work In Progress: Embryo (detail 2)



I added a second round of detail to the model...now its texture and rig time. I want to try rigging this thing in XSI..since they gave us a copy to work with. I dont know how steep the learning curve is though. Only 18 hours to go:(

Work In Progress: Embryo (Rig and bones)



OK....the rigging of this character really set me back. I wont have time to make it look the way I want. I put in many hours for a static image. Now Im thinking of creating a video based on this theme...
