Last year I had the privege of working with Greg Strasz(www.gregstrasz.com).
He contacted me to work on an alien concept with him. Together we brainstormed this creature. It was an amazing experience and we had tons of fun feeding off of each other ideas.
Greg had the idea of making a grey Alien but with a new twist. I was responsible for the modeling and sclulpting of the detail. Greg did these awesome renders and texturing.
We discussed all sorts of things. Like how his head would expand when he uses his brain for telekinetic synapsis. He has a nose that would breath in a sort of fish gill type of rhythm. He also has these tiny little bumps on the front that create a sort of shark like extra sensory for the Alien.
I hope you like it as much as we had fun making this.
