These are awesome, as always. Man, you are good at sculpting. Are these straight out of your mind, or based on something?

Holy hell was drunk last night ha, anywhoos, getting back to what I was doin hehe.

Hey Nik Clark, the first image I posted, I was inspired by an artist called Jordu Schell, I really like his designs and I wanted to try to zbrush one of them but added horns :)

The other 2 were from my head, with the help of head guides, One head guide I found on the internetz called Loomis, it was a drawing of a small child. I took it an cleaned it up in photoshop and used it to create the Andorian. The last image I drew a head guide and used that to create that odd shape lookin head lol. anyways ill be back gunna do work! :)

These are well within your comfort zone and quite similar to the rest of your works.
Try something different?
Like..why model the last's almost identical to your last doodle, just change the eyes and add horns and hair.
I know it's hard to break away from old habits and easy to fall back to sculpting the same old head you've always done but try to spice it up.

Here's me wishing I had an ounce of MDBs talent. But, if I'm going to put on my super-critical maxForums hat, Octopuzzy has a point. I never really progressed my sculpting skills because I 'always' sculpted the same clich├ęd archetypal 'character' over and over again. It was inevitably something 'sci-fi' or 'alien' or 'robotic'. If someone a few years ago had sat me down and said sculpt a fat italian opera singer, sculpt a famished orphan boy, sculpt a ballerina - I think I would be 10x better than I currently am, instead I sculpted what I enjoyed; fantasy aliens with little to no bearing on reality with minimal requirement of underlying anatomy/musculature. Leaving the artistic comfort zone is a scary thing to do and I'm still hesitant to do so in 90% of my personal projects, but whenever I do it, I have a great time :)

Hey guys! I have been away busy working at a new gig. I been working on 3d max vray VR, and filming VR as well, I have to combine both worlds together D; so that involves compositing 360 films with 3d VR, or sometimes 3D Vr to live action 360 films. I tell yeah its a real challenge and I think its sorta a new thing, well for me anyways ha ha. I rendered a simple HDR image along with one of my old models into a Equirectangular form.. To view it you can download the Kolor Eyes 1.6 and if you have the Oculus Rift that's a bonus :)
