It looks like a Den Beauvais painting. Never seen that before.

Nope, the artist is named Alvin. 

Pretty sure he did the original Raiders of the Lost Ark poster...but I could be wrong.  [Correction: The Raiders artist was Amsel.]

And Hicks, it was the 15th anniversary, if I recall correctly.  (Although I've also seen it listed as a 10th Anniv. so who knows?)

Looks familiar cos Den did a painting for a T-shirt with the Giger Alien in a similar pose.

How is the CGI Alien's pose in any way alien? It looks like a poorly acted man in a suit shot done on a computer.

Show me a guy who stands up like that, and I will show you a guy with joint and spine deformities.

The Alien doesn't stand up like that naturally either. It's striking a pose just like a person would, and it's not exactly a pose any person couldn't do.

Eh?  There's nothing vaguely Alien-like in that AvP shot.

As for the shot from Alien.  It was on screen for all of 2 seconds and looked like the f**ker was floating or something.  Very eerie.  Gimme that over the "Look at me, I'm acting scary,  booga-booga!" AvP stuff...

Yeah Jim!  F*ck you for using a suit that looks extremely like the one from the first film!!

Seriously, ridges aside, the only thing that lets down that Aliens shot is there's a tad too much slime on his noggin.  (Bubbles and all.)

Your crusade is doomed.  Doomed I tells ya!
