And there is Color

As we progress from quick sketches to refined sketches to full colored art, the aliens are gaining their own personality! I’m thrilled with how this one is turning out. I’ll post more a we get them done. Now for getting these animated. As much as I love the idea of z-brush.. I’m not sure I want to give up the stylized art we have in the concept stage for something more… ‘sterile’ in 3d. Concept are always seems to lose something in the translation to 3d. Not to say there aren’t some amazing 3d artist, just that I haven’t seen full 3d have that certain something that comes through during the concept stage of the art.

Wow! I really love this guy. What is that 2nd black tube over the monocle? Looks like maybe it would scan laser/image to the eye. Very cool and unique design

Are you going to zbrush this guy? 3D can be cool but if you are trying to stay true to classics like star control I’d rather see 2d aliens, just my opinion, but looking great!

Thanks Greg. I asked about the tube/nub over the monocle and the artist said, “it can be what you want it to be”… lol some answer :)

Ct, we are still considering 2d vs 3d for the aliens. We like the idea of 3d so we have the same aliens at different angles without a lot of new art creation, but I do know what you mean as far as keeping the feel of classics like starcon.
