Inspired by a salad. (Sounds wired but that the truth)
Used a 3D sphere as reference for the lighting. (Awesome technique I discovered a few month ago - guess I'll make a tutorial someday)

This is a really good Alien.
For me it looks more like a hybrid made of Crypto from Destroy all Humans and
a Metroid.
Good Job! ^^
