Random Alien Bust Speed Sculpt

A speed sculpt I did of a concept I found two weeks ago that I forgot to post. Maybe I'll push it further soon-ish ;)

It's super early on in the process, but I hope you enjoy it anyway!

Concept by Savau on Deviant Art.

Aperture Samus: Render Test

After an extremely busy couple of weeks, this is where things stand. Still need to model the gun and gloves, but then it's on to ZBrush for detailing. Oorah!

Aperture Samus: Jet Pack Progress

Progress on the Jet Pack. It's pretty much done at this point except for some surface details that will be added in ZBrush. Below are examples of the functionality of the pack. Enjoy!

Aperture Samus: Helmet Update

Progress on the helmet. Remaining details will be done in ZBrush. The face is just a stubbed out base.

I will post another update soon with the updates to her armor. I want to try out a new rendering program before I post those. Stay tuned!

Aperture Samus Update: Arm and Leg Refinements

Where things currently stand with Samus. Still a lot of work to do, but pretty happy with how it's turning out so far. This will all be given extra details in ZBrush like additional bolts, screws, etc, but will remain as clean as possible to match Portal's art style. And, yes, her gun will be in the final model, I just have to figure out how to make it first...

Placeholder geometry: Undersuit (silhouette done though), Bolts on legs, Shoulders, Chest Armor/Collar/Back

Let me know what you think!

Aperture Samus: Leg Braces Update

Just a quick update on the leg braces / "Long Fall" inspired shock absorbers. Many iterations were done, some more complex and some less so, but I finally landed on these as being the ones I wanted. The legs are nearing the end of what I will do before I add all the fine details later on. Just a few more refinements to make and then we'll see where I move next! It all has to get done!

The arms, shoulders, and torso are still just block outs for now.

Critique is welcome!

Aperture Samus: Armor Modeling

Starting to model the armor in Maya.

Armor pieces added into ZBrush.

Critique welcome! Enjoy!

Saturday, September 7, 2013

Continuing to push the block out further. I finally got the arms reasonably well figured out. They will change slightly when I make the actual pieces, but in terms of how they connect I think will remain fairly similar. This is only a block out so I'm not going to go back into the arms again at this point to make the changes that I'm seeing now to them.

Currently I'm basically doing 3D concept more than actual production, but I'm nearing the end of the things I felt I needed to address before diving all the way in. I should be starting the actual high poly mesh(es) soon.

Enjoy, and stay tuned!
