I normally just tend to post finished drawings or sketches, but this time I wanted to share a bit of my WIP. Over the last couple of years I have been developing different techniques to do my art.

For a while now I have been trying to do an alien for my personal project but had a lot of trouble sketching him down on paper. For some reason he just was not coming down right. At work I recently got the new version of zbrush and decided to learn it by working on the alien again, maybe the third time would be the charm

I started with a dynamesh sphere and just sculpted the basic skull and and the planes of the head that I had in my head. I then took  a side view and drew over it with some lineart. I brought the sideview back into zbrush where I used it as reference to further my sculpt. Once I was happy with him I took him back to photoshop where I'm continuing to work on him.

He's getting there. I still want to play with the head and "hair" a bit and also with the colours. So far I'm really enjoying this new process, seems quite fun and quick too.
