Syrius - Psychic alien (bust) with enhancement drone

An exercise I’ve been doing for the past weeks, a small character concept. On the creative side I tried to form a small story behind the character and reflect it with assets. On the technical aspect the exercise has been a great chance to improve topology skills and software workflows for FBX objects. It’s also been my first time texturing a skin and I learnt some new handy techniques with Substance Painter in the process. Sculpt and lowpoly were made in ZBrush and used Modo for UV retouch.

MEET SYRIUS
--
Syrius is part of an ancient alien imperial race. They are extremely intelligent, small-hearted and super advanced in technology. All beings are incubated in genetic farms with specific profiles to serve the empire troops once they are adults. Syrius is a young psychic who is joining the troops next year. When they’re born, all psychics receive 2 chip implants, a drone unit and a mineral gem. Asset explanation is available in the live model's annotations.
