Since his nose is on his forehead maybe his chin is where his testicles reside. Kinda like Peter Griffin from the family guy.

Sorry I could not resist!

It is looking really good Jay!

Cool Gen, I have a mesh thats viewable in the topology section as well if you want to see more edgelooping on a more normal looking character. The bumps on the forehead are well....just bumps, part of his character, he's an alien so anything goes really.

LOL he's a ballchinean species like that dude from Men in Black

cheers
Jay

distrubing chin requires a disturbing comment

LmAo!...i'd forgotten all about this movie till like twenty seconds ago
Men In Black II where will smith gets to adlib the name of the alien that Tommy lee Jones punches in the chin at the post office i think it was.

" K its a Nutfacebug"...."K its a upscrotan".....
then he comes up wiht the name that they use...

"K its a ball Chinian!"

Jay...you sould call this character a ballchinian!!!!!

that my two cents..

Jay

I was interested because ive been reading more recently about the zbrush/maya workflow. I got given a zbrush book for christmas which has a section on the pros and cons of working from a low-res/high-res mesh in zbrush. How some people prefer the 'arty' way of doing most work in zbrush on a low res mesh, and how other people who are more confident with hard-surface modelling prefer to work further in maya or whatever 3d package before going to z.

Also i guess it makes for a smoother process if you are going to create a normal or displacement map. Without going even further into it and getting into retopology and everything, I just wondered what your views were, if any of these factors have been in your considerations...

For what I know it looks nice, i think the effort you have put in in Maya first has given a really solid foundation.
