Alien - left side. To the left is a sculpture of an alien's head, from approximately one year ago. It was done in epoxy putty, with a 2" screw for a base; my fingertips show the scale. I did not initially intend this sculpture to represent the eaie, but as it was done in a period when my concepts of the Eaie's appearance was evolving, it bears some similarities to them. The alien is facing right. At the back of its head is a respiratory sac with convolutions. The crest serves as a muscle attachment point; the muscles in question extend and retract the oral tentacles, seen to the right.
Here we see the eyespots, with a better view of the tentacles... Alien - oblique view.
Alien - face.
...and here's the face, with respiratory channel and mouth visible at center. I have a bit more to say about this, but it's 2:30 AM as I write this, so I'll add some more commentary tomorrow. Until then...

Update: I've decided to roll these comments into the next entry, which will show some other sculpture examples and discuss materials and technique. Until!
