hello,

good start. I think you should get some reference pictures to help you out.

to me, the next comes far too low at the front - the chest should be higher (side pic)

also the next is bent too far forward and is rather thick.

I think the head is possibly too small.

Do get some reference pics to help with proportions :slight_smile:

It’s a good start.

[!](Rant warning, danger danger)[!]

Thing is aliens always look all too human, I mean these aren’t puppets or guys in masks, it’s CG don’t make every alien look like its an ugly monkey. If you look at things on earth there are some odd balls sure but for the most part everything looks like it’s from earth, 2 eyes, 2 ears, 4 limbs. If something was from another planet, would expect it to look as such.

Who knows really maybe 2 eyes and 4 limbs is the golden standard so I could be wrong but it’s something to think about.

hmm. it looks like you were trying to make a human. but when you couldn’t get it right you said “ah ! i will just say its an alien and then everything will be good”

well your right he does look kidna human but i was sorta going for that the idea here is win thay transform you can add another limb or make them walk on all fours or what ever this is the base shape what thay look like win thay are born before any trasformations so he is going to look abit plane but affter i start working on some sence i will start tricking out diffrent forms :smiley:

well no your close but still missed the boat :slight_smile: i actuly started with this idea about 2 months ago been kinda working on it as a pet project and a modled the head using a silo tutorial and affter i modeld the head i was having alot of trubel geting a nice body shape so i add’d some refrance images from apeaceofstring.com and thats y you are getting the humanly shape really coming threw i was drawnding abit just pulling the overall shape of the body out of my mind i figured i would get a somewhat human shape going on and tweak it to fit the image in my mind better :smiley:

Don’t listen to AniCator, uploading to Elisyiun is fine, better then fine, this way the links won’t disappear in a few weeks, unless you clear out your used space here at elysiun.

AniCator, you got a 1% finders fee for all uploads to imageshack or something?! :-?

Hmm, seems to be a bit of a seam in the middle, might wanna go back in and use the N key, make sure all your verts are at zero.

Only thing I can say is planning is important, even if you can’t draw it still helps to put your ideas down on paper, or pad if you have one.


(chrome) #19

well that seam in the midel is do to the fact that i am mirror modeling and i have actuly put alot of ideas down on a note pad :smiley:


(AniCator) #20

you can reorganize that line if you apply the mirror

just get away the doubles
