Creature Sculpting & Exploration of Forms – Brett Briley “Spark” – Episode 9

“For this demo I started from a female scanned head. I started with the basic idea of doing an alien with large eyes, and fought to take it away from other well known aliens such as ET:) After playing with the design for a while I then brought in alphas for the final details (once my base and secondary forms were created) After sculpting, I went into PolyPaint using a a dark orange to set the base, and slowly filling out the forms and values to find the final design before doing a quick walkthrough on how to pose.”
