he looks a bit like the merman from Cabin in the Woods.
Dont really see the resemblance....
Obviously anybody working on an Alien film is going to be indebted to Giger's original design. But Huante had the right idea when it came to his alien creature... Giger took car parts, crocodile tails, skeletons and he put a penis on a man's head. Huante stripped away all of Giger's quirks and took physical deformities, whales and goblin sharks and blended them with a really tall albino man. He took the stuff that inspires him as an artist and he really put himself in his work.
Let's compare that to when the strause Bros, Kenner or companies like Gearbox start doing the alien creature they just start adding "more and more spikes! more teeth" Let's make them bigger and stronger!... those arent creative artistic decisions, that's just being a child and playing with your toys.
I dont blame ADI for some of their poor designs.. most cases they are just following the directors or the producers input. Their Runner looks good and the Newborn was an amazing Chris Cunningham design despite what ended up on screen not being 100% true to his vision of the creature.
But to the point, the franchise needs more real artists with unique and talented personal takes... not man-children who just want to have colonial marines go pew pew against "BADASS" over the top looking aliunz again.
