Hey, so I’m working on this original alien for a story of mine. And I was showing some pics to a friend, so I thought I might as well upload them here.
I played around with sculpting him right before I took the pictures … partly because it looks pretty bland without it.
No texturing as of yet.
Note: The eyes are nothing as depicted. They are a dynamically complex system of swirling colorfully brilliant tentacles that form the cornea.
It still needs a lot of work, and if people can help me out with it … I’ll upload some better pictures and some concept sketches too.
In words, I’m trying to go for an interesting mix of:
Egypt’s Pharaoh, Mewtwo, Human, Venom, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Elites.
While most Science Fictions overload their stories with random and empty alien species to fill an ever-void universe I take an utterly and completely different approach.
I’m actually revolted by the atrocious quantity and the barely any quality or depth of the aliens in Star Wars and Star Trek universes.
The aliens in my story are elaborately crafted with immense and graphic depth, history and detail - from origin to the rise and fall of civilizations, to cultural meaning and behavioral traits.
The story is kind of complicated, so I won’t bore you up front with the details. (I’ve been thinking about it for the last 10 years, and am nowhere near beginning production.)
But feel free to ask questions.
I’ll be posting my other alien (the Furun, my personal favorite) later, as well as my human model.
Anyways. As far as physical appearance…
The alien, the Xorgue, comes in 3 genders:
XX, XY, YY or Male, Female, Femine or Servant, Nurse, Queen or Warrior, Mentor, goddess.
The one depicted is a male.
I suck at texturing, but the style of the skin I want is to be a crinkly leather with a soft touch, and then a slimy sweat that coats ontop. In addition many different hair style combinations. If somebody could help me achieve that effect, I would greatly appreciate it. As for now, my skill is only in modeling. So it would be fantastic if I could improve the quality of my models as well as take advantage of the wonderful texturing and particle (hair) that Blender is capable of.
With that said, I’m really slow working and slow updating. But please bare with me!
Thanks! Tell me your thoughts.
