I got this idea for a pale and tired space traveller after reading Tales of Pirx the Pilot by the classic sci-fi writer, Stanislaw Lem. The shape of the helmet is inspired by Commander Oddball from Revenge of the Sith. The face is based on my own face; I used Modo's mesh sculpting tools to tweak the mesh (for example pushing in the cheeks and pulling down the eye lids). I've textured the face using my own skin but, don't
worry, I'm really not that pale and I don't have those dark areas under my eyes!
Modelled and rendered in modo.
