The white Carlos Huante design?
Wasn't that the proto-Alien? Not the Jockey-burster?
Wasn't the scrapped proto-Alien the Ultramorph?
Nah - 2 different creatures. The Ultramorph was the jockey-birthed. The white one was the proto-Alien that came out of...Shaw?
Ahh, didn't know that. I haven't actually read through the older scripts, and have only partially dug through the bonus features on the Blu-ray set (there's some really extensive stuff in there, much like the Anthology set).
I did read through the art book back in 2012, so it might have been covered in there, but admittedly I'm having trouble remembering a lot of the details. It being the Alien that comes out of Shaw/Watts definitely makes sense, though. Was the one that came out of Holloway supposed to be different in design as well? I remember this concept art, but I don't know if there was ever anything like it in a script:
I think I remember the one you're talking about, and if it is indeed the one I remember loving it.There it is:
Yup, I remember that. Really great stuff. I would perhaps elongate the head a tad (or at least reduce the curve a bit), maybe trim a bit of excess material on the neck, but otherwise I'm completely sold on that design. The "face" is fantastic, and I love what they did with the back sans-tubing.
Didn't Shaw give birth to something as well? I vaguely remember her being healed as she was giving birth?
I think in one of the original scripts she surgically removes a chestburster, but I could be wrong.
