The Akien I used mainly zbrush to model and render. Maya was used to create based meshes for pieces of the armor. Then, render passes is composited in photoshop. AKIEN is an ancient noble alien race who live in AKANIEN planet in Markarian 421 Galaxy (397 million light-years from earth). They are originally a hybrid reptile-fish specie. Their home world is a land by day (48 hs earth hour) and lake by night (26 hs earth hour). After 1 million years of evolution they have to adapt themselves with mechanical protection due to lake-toxic which caused by the meteor crash in 10.000 years ago. Although they developed a high level of technology, the AKIEN still follow their ancient rituals and social structure such as incorporating their tribal design patterns into clothes and machines (as a sign of being blessed by the higher being - The Mighty Creator) and the chief in charge of justice and government. The name AKIEN in their native language means: Lanterns in the darkness.
