I just recently saw some of the concept artwork generated by Weta for the movie District 9. Was really inspired and wanted to see how I could translate the sketch into a photoreal look(at least shoot for that type of feel). I veered away from having the human eye/eye socket look for this round. Wanted to push it more towards an insectal man thing.
So I created a few variants and plan on doing another round. Hoping the next round will be more convincing and will probably make sure to have some human elements added back in.
