Jared Krichevsky Shares Concept Art For The Predator Spider-Hybrid Creatures

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.

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.

    It boggles the mind why they thought that predator dogs were a good idea.  Number One it was already done in the previous movie (and better I might add)

    That was the least of their problems. What they gave us is an entire movie made up of all the bad ideas you could ever come up with. Glued together in a hodgepodge of visual misery, smeared in narrative poo, and garnished with two middle fingers.

    More fun designs! I love the dog. The second hybrid beastie could be a Lovecraft monster or one of Barlowe's Extraterrestrials. I don't know what went wrong in production, but the artists did plenty of good work.  :)

    In total honesty, when William Hudson
    remarks;
    "Sir, is this going to be a stand up fight,
    or another bug hunt?"

    I can almost imagine he's referring
    to something like this creature...

    You know what that is?

    That is a nope.

    A nope I don't want to ever see in the shower, or my bedroom.

    Ah C'mon. These things crawl up through my air vents by the nest load during the summer months. You can take em'. Let me see that war face woman!

    What would "last stand" Hudson think of such defeatist talk?

    I would've run screaming out of the bathroom before pushing him in there. There's be no time for talk.

    I don't think it belongs in the setting of The Predator, but it's totally terrifying.
    Honestly I could totally see it being a species on a colony world that the USCM may have had to wipe out.

    Agreed.



    Getting closer to "thing" territory. The design from Predators is still the most sound, in my opinion.

    Indeed.

    Of course, "most " animals on Earth dont have four limbs and a skeleton, I misspoke (typed) but they're ubiquitous among higher animals.
  8. Dontgopostingmyheart
    That's kind of like saying its weird and unbelievable that most animals on Earth has four limbs and an internal skeleton. There are exceptions sure, cephalopods and insects but reptiles, mammals, birds and amphibians all have four limbs and internal skeletons. Once life on a planet finds something that works, it sticks with it. If mandibles had evolved early enough in the development of life on Planet Predator than yeah, they're probably pretty common on that planet.
  9. Mr.Turok
    Its just slightly unbelievable, even for Predator lore, that every creature in their homeworld has to have mandibles to show "hey these guys are from Predator homeworld, see the mandibles show it".

    Boooooooo. Everything from Predator World except for the Predator should have been cute and cuddly. That would help explain why the predators hunt on alien worlds.
    For all we know, that's true. Could be the Preds themselves were cute and cuddly until someone or something tampered with them. For all the material that emerged over the years, from what I can tell, the Predators remain somewhat mysterious.

    The last two
    hound designs are stupid;
    & The Official
    "The Predator" Hounds.

    The rest are convincing and
    I could easily see roaming
    a game preserve.

    Hybridisation itself is
    a tired stupid concept.
    As designs on their own-
    the rest is excellent.

    Most of the hybrid concept art is actually worse than what we got in the film. I'd understand if a Predator Clan were to upgrade themselves, But I'm lead to believe that not only are all the Predators trying to upgrade themselves, but their pets as well? Spiders, Monkeys, and of course the dogs from the film are all just hybrids. It's just dumb at least for me.

    The Predator Spider makes sense because did you know that spider's are the fiercest killers in the insect kingdom?
    If they were really looking to break that billion dollar mark, they should have included a fight scene between a Predator and a polar bear.
  14. XenoHunter99
    As critter designs, a lot of these menagerie creatures had potential. The spider looks good. As a matter of tactics, the scorpion tail might work better slung over the top, but ok. How big was this supposed to be?
