It's the default Mudbox material, there's no texture applied.

Whenever i see head crabs it reminds me of the paramites from abes odyssey. Also that is a beautiful looking model, you should make it and replacement for the regular head crab on ep2.

Looks nice, but I don't see what was wrong with the original one in HL2.

I'm trying to make it look more like the original leaked version, while also making it look more next gen. This is 2009, I want to make it look like it.

Yup, leaked headcrab has some realism. And I think when you make the first episode, there is maybe no need for normal maps but just put this model textured directly in game) Because PC power is growing now significantly.

With that wrinkled look it kind of looks like it's meant to conform to the shape of a host's shoulders!

Valve's model looks like that with the wrinkles but, in valve's it is only in the texture. In that model the wrinkles are actually on the model. I prefer it in the texture though because it wouldn't bring down frame rate as much.

This is the high poly model, in the end it's just going to be a normal map.
