unless that's the way it's meant to look
since it's not a known species

Thanks for the comments!

@Chirone: No. The chest is a real human chest. I'm not going to hide behind the fact that it's an aliens What you are seeing at the center of the chest it where the Peck muscles attach to the breast bone. On some people (mostly very muscular) the Peck/breast connection is very prominent. I will admit, looking back, that it appears a bit too exaggerated, So I will probably smooth it out. Thanks!

@Mickeal_alex: WOW, brilliant link... Thank you! Will help allot. You can see the in this link the Peck/Breast connection is visible on the surface, though just not as prominent as mine I guess the person in my photos is just a freak! Hahaa! Thanks!

@Joopson: Yes that seem is where I haven't merged the 2 half's of the mesh! Thanks!

Anyway, heres the torso with the Pecks smoothed, and the 2 half's merged. It's not complete, and I could tweak it until no end, So I will probably move on, and make another Torso, and other body parts.

anyway, Thanks again!

i have some more links if you are interested. I will use the photos on the link that i showed you to sculpt in zbrush, because the man in my threat i didn't use any type of references and that is why it looks kinda unnatural. Also the update on your model looks alot better and yeah the connection of the muscles is smoother to the sternum, i think that this connection is sharper in skinny people.
