Thumbs up

Very excellent creature so far. Your entire process looks tight. Great job. Keep at it!

Great modeling skills Especially the head part of the creature looks really great. Nice idea to make on big eye out of it

Ha, a big eye, I never looked at it that way. I was intending it to be tech. The creature derives it's senses from it's mechanical equipment, making it a more effecient killing machine, and giving me an excuse to model some hooks in the flesh.

This looks amazing!

I can't wait to see this image complete. It is very likely going to get first place.

WOW! Pretty scary creature! The details work just fine z-brushed!

Nothing to crit at this point waiting for arms and legs

Best wishes

looks to me like the pecs might be a bit high on the torso, on humans the bottom the sternum is just a tiny bit (2" or so) below the bottom of the pecs, but on your monster it seems to be like a foot below, then again this is a monster,'s not a big deal to fudge the anatomy a bit. I hope that makes sense. I also think the jaw could use a more varied shape, right now it seems a little too angular, making it look almost mechnical - though, that might be what you're going for.

anyway, really promising man, best work I've seen in this competition.

Hey man, your models are awesome! Very impressive detail work. The only crit I have is the close resemblance of your monster design to a character from the Authority comic book. I don't know if it was subconcious, but he looks very similar to a character named Seth. Just a heads up! Great 3D!

Damn, Kwak now that sternum is going to drive me nuts. It's funny the stuff you don't notice when your in the middle of making something.
Theodorus, I have never read the Authority. (Though I have been told it's quite good.) If you have any links to a picture of the character it would be appreciated. My thoughts of the design where just to have something big like a shark mixed with King Kong. The shark like head looked so silly I changed it to this more alien design with tech integrated into him.

Yup I agree with KWAK on the pecs. I think it'll look better with it a bit more down. It'll be nice if you could show some protruding ribs, or some monster bones. Fantastic work no less.

I like your alien character, great modelling!

In my opinion, the female´s skin just looks a bit too plastic.
There are loads of tutorials available on the site, just search.

Cool attempt, keep going man!
