Carlos Huante talks Alien: Covenant concept work. Carlos Huante is one of the many talented concept artists who worked on Prometheus. He recently updated his Instagram page with numerous Prometheus concepts (including several new pieces).
One of the things that fans have noticed is that the creatures from Alien: Covenant seem to share similarities with unused designs from Prometheus. The Neomorphs appear to have been influenced by some of the Proto-Alien and Deacon concepts and we’ve seen Huante’s Beluga-Head concept (for the Fifield Mutant) in some of the leaked pictures.
We’re not the only ones paying attention though. Pablo Donado pointed out the similarities to the Beluga-Head and asked Huante about his involvement with Alien: Covenant. Huante explained that “I worked on the 2nd movie twice. With two slightly different scripts, two different approaches.. but have no idea what they made or what the film is about..it went over seas (I’m in the US) and I was done before I could finish my part.”
Carlos Huante isn’t the only artist from Prometheus who provided some concept art for Alien: Covenant. When we spoke to Wayne Haag, concept artist and visual effects concept artist from Alien: Covenant, he revealed that Steven Messing had also been working on Covenant, doing spaceship designs.
