For my Alien I decided I wanted to go more of the amphibian route than bug. This way when sculpting I can work on more of the fat folds and skin pours than smooth exoskeletons.

Included this time is some progress I made on a Frog zbrush model as well, the frog is based on the Pacman Frog

My idea for a creature was a large fat Salamander/Slug Hybrid Alien that are prized as house pets in the near future. Captured from a very humid planet, they have porous skin and vents on their backs and based on the changes in their diet and habitat they can exude different smells. In their natural habitat, their smell could be so foul that it would ward off predators, or so sweet that it would draw in small prey. Now domesticated, these creatures thrive in richer households across planet earth because of their weird alien look as well as their function as a living, breathing scented candle.

I wanted to create a bug monster that was actually the health supply for the main character instead of an enemy. So my plan was to make a sort of pill bug with alot of brilliant colors so it stands out from its environment. I like the beetle’s color scheme so I may incorporate some of that iridescence into the alien. I thought it would be funny if when the player approached said health bug too loudly, it would curl up and roll away. I’m still working on ideas for my alien monster but this is what I’m thinking about for right now
