A bust of a grizzled old alien I drew up in Sculptris.
He's pretty high poly (roughly 100k triangles), so he'll be a pretty good demonstration of your printer's quality.
And if your printer messes up near the end (like in my first attempt), he makes a pretty nice container for your tools!
I've attached the Sculptris file in case you want to make some changes of your own. The base isn't flattened in this version.
I printed with a 0.1mm layer height and 20% infill. It took me around 7 hours to print.
You'll certainly need to use support when printing this (his chin makes this a requirement). I needed to use a brim to hold the support in place. I'm not sure if you will, but keep it in mind.
