Default Bulk build thread

Hey there. Long time no thread.
Thought I'd make a thread to contain anything I attempt to build.
The meshes themselves will in the end tell you what the object is supposed to be. Hopefully the thread will be of interest to some.
Here we go.

Nice start on the objects. I have no idea what they are or what the final object is supposed to be but I'm definitely interested.

Wow, dude, that looks sweet.

I've never been able to get the hang of Sculptris. All of my crap done in it looked stupid.

Thanks.
Are you using a tablet to work in it? If not I can completely understand as the controls are very clunky with a mouse.
If you are using a tablet try turning on the "lazy" mouse option on the interface. It smooths down your strokes to something a bit more tolerable.

I don't have a tablet. Though, it does make sense that it would make it easier to work with, given how the controls are.

What's Topogun? (besides a misspelling of the title of a 1986 movie about Navy pilots who went to a school of the same name )

I think I saw that guy once. He was working in a convenience store...


Seriously, that's some great work. Do you have a picture of the alien from the TV series?
