Zombies or Aliens Which are better?

Alien brain in a jar.
It's reader participation time again here at Deranged Scratchings! The question is Which is better aliens or zombies?.....but only because the real question I am bringing to your attention was just too damn big to fit in the title. That's right this is one of those big questions, the sort of question theologians and adepts of science have turned their backs on from fear of losing themselves to it's complexity. I know that readers of Deranged Scratchings are a rare breed who breakfast on the dilemmas other mortals dread, so hear it is in it's awesome entirety: Which is better?
  • Aliens(in a jar with cyborg bodies)
  • Insect Men
  • Gelatinous Goop Aliens
  • Lion Men 
  • Steam Punk Cooker
  • Robots
  • Space Troopers
  • Zombies

Insect man with glowing red eyes
Insect men can of course have more than one set of eyes, antenna and segmented external skeletons are also very in next year.

Alien blob creature

Alien gelatinous goop could be due a come back, you herd it here first

Lion man
Erm...... it all went a bit Thunder Cats (what ever happened to the movie?)

Steam punk robot cooker

Steam punk stove robot, can kick your ass while making a nice cup of tea for afters.


Battle Robot
 Robot? Any takers? Formerly owned by Captain Antilles. No faulty motivators as standard.


Space Trooper
Space trooper.... a soldier in space not terribly original but it seems I had to do it. (yes of course he gets a laser gun)


Scary Zombie ghoul
Lastly but no means leastly it's the video game and internet phenomenon that is the zombie! Bath salts be damned better look out or he'll have your eye out!

I have been busy rendering a cyber punk laser battle which will be my next post. While my main computer was busy with the render job, I got into my character concept painting. It's been great fun, now all I need to do is pick one to be taken into polygons. 

So Your mission, should you choose to accept it, involves choosing a concept idea from the above for me to turn into my next character model. Here are your choices again:
  • Alien (in a jar with cyborg body)
  • Insect Man
  • Gelatinous Goop Alien
  • Lion Man
  • Steam Punk Cooker
  • Robot
  • Space Trooper
  • Zombie
Stick your choice in a comment and which ever gets the most votes before I get a chance to start building, will be made into a character model, the same way the cyborg was done last time.

  3. Alien (in a jar with cyborg body) wins for me. Its a truly unique concept, and would be fun to see animated.

    1. Well I'm glad you like them.....but you're supposed to pick one *stamps foot*

      A friend of mine used to say managing artists is like herding cats, I guess if enough other people vote for "an alien-insect-steampunk-robot" a)I will have to make it b)I may pull my hair out.

    1. That takes it to a tie, maybe I should have done secret ballot as this is turning into a two horse race. Thanks for your vote Kiki.

    1. .....And back to deadlock, it never occurred to me that this would happen. Well I have some other jobs to attend to so I hope there is a clear winner before I am free to build. Thanks for voting Nina and to anyone reading this PLEASE VOTE! deranged scratchings has need of your democratic contribution.

  10. Ok voting is now closed. Thanks to everyone who voted, it was great to get all the response.

    I am surprised that it came down to just the two designs Steam Punk Robot and Jar Alien, I liked the jelly alien also the insect man and I thought the zombie would get votes.

    I'm going to start building today but first I need to cast my vote to break the tie. I'm voting for Jar Alien taking the final votes to:

    Jar Alien 5 votes

    Steam Punk Robot 4 votes

    1. I'm sorry, but I think the most consistent and solid design here is definitely the steampunk robot.

      Delete
    2. Yeah Steampunk Robot was definitely popular, unfortunately Jar Alien got the jump on him and is already having his fine details sculpted. I will update the blog with some screen grabs soon.
