 Farzad Vrahramyan Shares New Alien 5 Concept Art!

Mutated Alien


Like much of the creature concepts we’ve seen of Blomkamp’s Alien 5 (aka Red Harvest), Farzad’s concept continues in the direction of mutated Aliens. Another frequent artist who works on Alien films, Carlos Huante, previously post – but then took down – some artwork he did for Alien 5 which showed a lot of mutated Aliens. A lot of those concepts also had dual sets of arms, something we saw in the design marquette ADI shared last year.

Update 05/03/2019: Unfortunately the artwork was removed from Instagram. I have uploaded a saved copy and a copy of a second piece that was also uploaded and then removed. Thanks to Nightmare Asylum for the second image.

    The original panther, I like the gold and grey color scheme and the built-in parasite is interesting. The iliac crests of the pelvis are stylized, but that enhances the design. Also, the sculpt retains more of the biomechanical feel of Giger's alien, and with a smooth dome. The overall effect is graceful. I think it's the most beautiful figure produced in the Kenner line and remains one of my favorite figures overall. The Night Stalker repaint works, too; but it's sort of just another alien with red markings. YMMV.

    I expect the Scorpion design was Kenner's stand-in for the Aliens warrior and has the exploding gimmick. The spikes are nothing to fuss about. The biggest problem with it is, chibi proportions. It's a killer dwarf! The NECA redux fixes that and looks great.

    If the project will never see light of day, it would be nice to see whatever script there is or was. If it's presented as a DH comic, that would be fine too.

    With respect to the concepts in the thread, they are ungainly. That's their crime. As Giger often said, the Alien was an aesthetic monster. The original suggested grace and power. The best of the Kenner critters and other derivative works have that, as well. These, not so much. I think for the centipede, the insistence on keeping so much of the humanoid creature worked against it. The many-heads model may have been an experiment gone wrong, suggesting a serious birth defect. In that case, it works.

    Is it even Neill's to show? Or does Fox own it?

    Pretty confident FOX owns it.

    I think a leak is in order.

    A slight slip of the tongue, as it were.

    Which would you prefer? A leaked script or a comic adaptation?

    Similar to what's been done with William Gibson's ALIEN 3 script by Dark Horse?

    I don't read comics, so i'll take the leak.

    Release the script. That would put an end to it in a day.

    Quote from: Huggs on Mar 06, 2019, 02:09:59 AMNeil's got one. Don't think he doesn't. He had to have something written down to pitch to weaver and Cameron.

    He had something but it's only about a dozen pages. Not a full script.
    Someone should ask him on twitter.

    I don't a script alone would end it.
    Even if it sucks there's still people who'd love a return to something like Aliens.

    I would like to remind everyone that everything looks off at the conceptual stage. Alien 5 died during the conceptual stage and thus nothing tangible for its production actually exists. What we do know is that an artist was hired to make mutants for a scene.

    Honestly if they would've played up the penis look for the centipede though, I've been fine with that.

    Maybe it would be great for some nightmare sequence. Or maybe as some rejected experiments - like in Resurrection.

    I don't know. Too comic-like for my taste

    You don't NEED concept art for a new Alien movie, just follow what Giger did in Alien. Everything that came after from lesser filmmakers and artists was trash anyway.

    I'm not necessarily sure the centipede-like thing was an indicator of genetic mutations/splicing. It might have simply been an Alien which birthed from a non-human host. What's off-putting about it is the stylised nature of the art. If it was depicted in a less cartoonish fashion, I could see a design like that being rather nightmarish if on screen. I can't imagine it would have been authorised for just a cameo, mind you, considering how these things are usually budgeted.

    The one with lots of heads might have arisen from mutation, but who knows?

    I don't mind genetic splicing/mutation in a film the Aliens feature in. If any horror concept is suited for it, it's them and 'The Thing', after all. It just depends on how it's executed. The Ripley clones are actually fascinating to see when revealed and one of the more memorable scenes in that film with a fairly decent atmosphere. The one with the mouthful of sharp teeth and no eyes really intrigued me. Heck, AC's laboratory David 8's been busy in, seems like it's the highlight of the entire film for some people. I'm sure the recent 'David's Drawings' book was snapped up precisely because of that when it was published.

    So, yeah, I don't have a problem with it as a basic concept. Depends how it's done. And if some of these are as a result of birthing from non-human ET wildlife hosts, I've actually wanted to see that done properly on film for a long time, so long as the designs look dangerous and believable.

    This concept would work in an Alien comic book. But I don't know what to think of it in a live-action film. They should use it for a comic, but better not for a million dollar production. It might look too playful. The design of the Aliens in Prometheus and Alien Covenant weren't extraordinary, but they did look natural and primordial.

    I have no problem with concept art stretching the boundaries.  That's what concept art is for.

    Exactly. That's exactly what the concepting stage is. I think people ought to be more mindful of that.They go wild and see what works and what doesn't. Concept art is going to go crazy.

    He's taken the art down.

    Hopefully for legal reasons, not because people are unrelenting assholes over concept art.

    Did someone rip the second piece from IG?

    This image showing for you? If not I can try direct messaging it.

    Don't have a high quality save but I was able to nab this from a preview to the link I sent via a message.

    Thanks for that NA. I was hoping someone had managed to snag a higher res save directly from the IG page as well.
