The Concept art well of unused ideas continues to flow to the internet since the home release of The Predator.
Following the recent artwork shared by a a number of artists of the creatures of the Upgrade Predator’s “menagerie,” Artist Jared Krichevsky has posted some creature designs he created during the film’s pre-production.
These spider creatures certainly look pretty terrifying, walking on six legs and featuring a hanging skeletal abdomen ending in a stinger-tipped tail. The creature’s mouth also has Predator-like mandibles as we’ve seen with most of the creature artwork of the “menagerie,” though it displays six instead of the usual four. These spiders were featured in the early leaked script for the film, which we should finally have available to download in the new year should you like to read it.
Concept artist Michael V. Eppinette also recently shared some of his conceptual artwork for a different take on these spider-hybrid creatures.
Additionally, even more art was just shared by Mikey Rotella of some conceptual sculpts he did of the Predator characters.

Worked on some of these early concepts for @schellsculpturestudio with legends, Jordu Schell and original predator creator Matt Rose!! #maquette #design #scifi #alien #nerds #art #sculpture #seriousrubber #et #extraterrestrial #ufo #film #makeupfx #spfx #creatureeffects #prosthetics #practicaleffects #cuttingroomfloor #arnoldschwarzenegger #predator #thepredator #ifitbleedswecankillit #iaintgottimetobleed #yougottimetoduck
With this much unused material having come out, I can’t help but feel that the special features of the Blu-ray, as well as the making-of book could’ve included these and the other recent additions we’ve seen.
