Bugs and sculpts for everyone

Postby NAVARRO » Mon Jan 11, 2010 3:06 pm

Hi folks, For those that dont know I have been commissioned to do some concepts and sculpts in order to be casted and sold to everyone... since I have finished some new stuff and I will do plenty more colaborations in the near future I opted to open this thread to resume everything here.
What differs this from other projects threads I have, is that these sculpts will be available to all since they will be casted and sold ( by client).
Here I hope to get feedback and sugestions since these are sculpted for you. Without further delays here you go:

Now covering bug things but future may sculpt other themed stuff.

Not long ago people voted on some concepts I did:

The last one won and I sculpted

People liked it but sugested me to loose the lateral protuberances on head and so I did:

So its the final thing.

People also sugested more variants so I did a "closed" pincer head and a "opened" pincer head
Image
Image

Also working on a big spore
Image
but kind of brainstormed with client and I'm sculpting this one:
Image

And finally a BIG must have for xenomorphs fans some new heads are finished:

So this is what have been done so far, please sugest stuff you would like to see fleshed out or just ask any hobby questions.
Mind I'm not gaining by this and any business related questions should be addressed to client Im just the art guy .

I really love the idea of the xenomorph heads but the jaws could be a bit more defined in my humble opinion.

:froth: :froth: Love all of those. I agree with the jaw definition comment, but it doesn't put me off liking the whole thing.

If you're seeking more ideas: District-9 type aliens or anything really like a standing cockroach. I'm thinking something like the Superfig's Glock Roach, but with more pizazz like the drinking and smoking bugs from Men in Black, but bigger.
It is. And it is not. When it is, and when it is not, is the question or the answer, or both or neither.

Yes, Yes and Yes....Goldwyrm speaks rightly here. I love the roaches from MIB and District Nine bugs were great. There's something viscerally satisfying about smoking, drinking, cussing roaches.

They were worms. This guy was the roach. ;)

Nice pincer-heads, Nav. Though I think the new pod sketch is a bit too freudian...

Yup these pieces are going to be on Chapterhouse studios.
I can see the mess on the lower jaw now, to bad it shipped already to the states. Well I hope I can convince chapterhouse chaps to let me make a big alien queen head and then I will pay more atention to jaws.

I just made some ideas for bioblades, what do you guys and gals think?
