Here’s my survey of alien life forms (xenobiology) for your DAZ Studio and Poser 3D sci-fi landscapes. The focus here is on what you might call natural or “just hanging around the waterhole” alien creatures for sci-fi scenes, rather than on humanoid alien characters or movie style ‘enemy alien’ characters.
Styrax. Update: This appears to be one of the items which vanished with the demise of the RuntimeDNA store. The head could be Photoshopped to make it more like a flamingo, and the arms removed, so that it’s more of a herd animal…
The Animotions store seems to have inherited some early Davo creatures…
Catamaran’s Downloads has an OOoomph and an Inner/Outer Space floater. Both are free, but for non-commercial use only..
‘Alien plants’ are a whole other topic, but I really like the look of the new Alien Plants DAZ/Poser pack from Petipet.
That’s it. Steer clear of the Gallumpaburps — they bite!
