I designed and sculpted this dude for my Gumroad Tutorial: “The Art Of Character Design“. I cover every step of the creation, from blocking out the forms to adding fine wrinkles and skin pores. (If you have any questions, feel free to ask!)

Which Universe would be a better fit, STAR WARS or STAR TREK?

Almost looks like a Glukkon, except for the arms.

Definitely a Star Wars character. In Star Trek, all the aliens are people in costumes haha

I would say Star Wars as they have always taken more trouble (and had the money) to really imagine aliens that are not humanoids.  Casual setting with all the veins & bone structure give you a real sense of sitting across from it.  Facial expression and especially the eyes: plus the cigar let you know that this entity is at least friendly.  Very compelling piece and will go strait to my fav's.  Thanks for the look.

Neither. This is better than either of those. This is an entirely new universe with well thought out aliens.
