    Make some eyes and a set of hands. Then it will be on to a 3 piece suit.
    Looking forward to seeing it rendered out in Lightwave.

    It's the weirdness of sci-fi nomenclature. A group of them is Silence, a singular one is a Silent. Why do I even know this?

    Dr Who Geek Hat On

    I believe you will find that they are called the Silence as a race. One individual would then therefor be a Silent.

    Dr Who Geek Hat Off...

    Oh, who am I kidding. Never take the hat off... or the scarf... ;-)

    (Great work btw. Excellent!)

    ZBrush?

    Thank you.
    Yes ZBrush then on into Lightwave.
    Having some issues getting a decent Normal map out of ZBrush for use in Lightwave.
    One more thing to figure out I guess.

    More on the hands. They need not be any longer than this as they will be coming out of the ends of the suit jacket arms.

    The silence isn't a species. It's a religious order (or movement). They believe silence will fall when the first question and the oldest question hidden in plain sight is asked. They want to prevent that from happening.

    and the modelling and texturing on this are awesome!

    Thanks.
    Not gotten anything done 3d wise lately.
    Building a work area in the "real world" basement to sculpt, paint, and build models of various types.
    Hmm I wonder how long it would take to sculpt this thing in Sculpey? Say about 18" tall?

    I used super sculpey, but 18" sounds quite tall. You need a lot of stuff for that and a proper rig. I would make it smaller.

    It would have an armature and I'd build up masses (muscles,chest and the heavy areas) in aluminum foil to save on the
    Sculpey. Also thinking about the Aves product. It does not have too good a working time though. It is air dry so perhaps for the
    thicker places for filler. It is also priced a lot better than Sculpey...Super or otherwise.
