i actually think you should do more of an anamatically correct model as your first organic model....the alien is a bit unoriginal and wont have many challenging facial features, you can still do something interesting, build someone with alot of accesories like satchels, holsters, guns, back packs, helmets etc to show of your asset modelling as well would be cool. jus my opinion though.

looks amazing, thats really well done for what you had to work with.

only thing that catches my eye is how long the feet are, specifically the heel part, but it could be right, it just looks off to me.
