Love the hunch, markedly improves how the design comes off to me. Looks like you can actively tell it's hunting, or aggressive and if it was just walking about casually with the human silhouette and plantigrade legs it would look silly af.
The problem for me is it looks like every other hunched over man in a suit, which is my issue with every time Woodruff Jnr is in the suit. Upright and looking around calmly gives it a more intelligent aspect; it's scanning, searching, assessing, thinking
. You see it even in Bolaji's suit tests, where he's not exactly stick straight, but he's not slouching at his shoulders.
The Terminator, of all things, is a good example of this. When he's tracking something down he scans the area upright, to get a complete view.
Hunched is beastly, which is lazy and unimaginative.
When you see it roaming around in full view, the digitigrade legs and leaning forward posture works best.
I really disagree here. Long, slender, human legs with an elegant walking motion could've worked wonders. The problem in Alien
is that the full body shots were exclusively stunt people, not Bolaji. If they'd blown him out the airlock that ending wouldn't have looked quite as dodgy.
