    I'm still miffed that the production chickened out on the elephantine Jockey design for fear of looking silly.

    IMO the pic I posted above shows that you could have the human element of it and still make it unnervingly alien, or biologically unfeasible as you say. Like the Jockey, a thing that should not be. One of those at correct Jockey proportions would of been fantastic and would of respected the source material.

    So you really wouldn't hate on it anyway even if this was the final design?

    In regards to Huante's Jockey hell no, it would of been epic.

    I risk sounding too much like a purist, but Giger's absence from the creative process was sorely missed. Still, Huante's designs are bold and unsettling, whereas what we actually saw in Prometheus would not be out of place in any contemporary sci-fi film. The exception was the 'Hammerpede', which was wonderful.

    It's baffling that Ridley Scott envisioned the the engineer environments as more mechanical and the creatures as biologically feasible, when what made both so unsettling and memorable in Alien was the opposite approach. I'm still miffed that the production chickened out on the elephantine Jockey design for fear of looking silly. Of course it was always intended as a breathing apparatus and not a trunk, but the concepts we see here prove that it would have worked, and would have looked wicked.

    But are you guys sure this is what you want?

    Some degree of hate is unavoidable. If H.R. Giger severed one of his own appendages and it magically morphed into a creature design from God/Chief Engineer Himself, there would still be naysayers. At least these ideas were more ambitious than an actor in zombie makeup...and f***ing space flutes.

    Well, I thought that was quite interesting in terms of exploration of ideas. I don't understand the idea of the swollen fronts of the alien heads but it was good to see the rest of Huante's concepts to see further what he was trying to do

    Nice. Very inspiring. (and heartbreaking for some)

    I particularly like the translucent jellyfish/fetus spacejockey suit/helmet. It reinforces that their tech was based in the biological and it would have made more sense in the film (if not cost more $)

    What's with the floating detached arms/hands?
