Alright f*ck it i'm in. I usually never finish these challenges, but it is aliens after all, which is all i ever seem to do in my free time anyway.

I have no idea what i am going to do. I'm just going to start modeling and see what happens.

This is a quick little doodle in blender. I might do a couple of aliens and either use them or just use one of my favorites.

thanks guys. Going to try and find some time this week to doodle out some more heads.

I've been pondering about what i'm going to do. I'm thinking maybe some sort of role reversal. Were the humans are the ones to make first contact. And the humans are the superior species. Maybe some redneck hick aliens. hmmm
*ponders some more*

Interesting heads! I have a question about Blender. Is there a way to make the cutting tool more user friendly? Is there a way to stop it from making extra edges at each end of the cut?

And is there a way to make the move tool behave like a tweak tool?

Thanks guys.

@andreicirdu: I don't think i ever use the cutting tool. Usually what i do is select a bunch of edges click "w" then subdivide or "ctrl r" for an edge ring split

As for a tweak tool, you may need to elaborate. But you can manipulate edge,face and vertex at the same time by shift clicking the select modes on the toolbar. you may also want to turn of the transform manipulator. I find it gets in the way sometimes. I also use sculpt mode a lot while i'm modeling so that may help.
