Smoker by KENBARTHELMEY Smoker by KENBARTHELMEY
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?

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.

I'd say it's from StarWars, since StarTrek has big that much non-humanoid creatures.

Amazing!

Star Wars, by the way, definitely Star Wars.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning! Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you

Easily a good fit for 'Wars, but I'd love to see more aliens in 'Trek like this. More alien in physique and less people in latex masks.

Star Trek.
Reminds me of the creatures from fluidic space, but even more refined. :D

I would be okay with Star Wars, but they have yet to yield a nice full CG character that didn't throw off the whole movie. Not that I don't love CG, but their creatures are better left animatronic/puppets or suits/makeup so they integrate better with the rest of the live action cast. To me they are believable because they are there (think original Yoda), not because they look cool or can walk, dance, do somersaults, etc (CG Yoda, Maz, Jar-Jar, CG Boba Fett, that thing in the diner talking about the assassins dart thing to obiwan, list could go on.)


Not sure how they did Hellboy but at least their main characters did not feel out of place.

It depends. In Star Wars this guy would simply be a background character you see for a split second. In Star Trek he would be a main villain, because he's smoking and only evil people smoke in Star Trek.
