Another one I loved doing, anatomy of a Neomorph split open for a profile view.
This one is pretty special to me because Adam Johansen (Creature HOD) took the illustration as an inspiration to sculpt and create an utterly incredible piece that sat in the lab, far more resolved and beautiful than I could've conceived. Probably the coolest thing in that space. Sorry for the love in, but... Damn, it was awesome!



Couple more costume designs from Andrei Riabovitchev - https://www.artstation.com/artwork/lnKJa

When I participated in the December test screening, when David smuggles the embryos on the Covenant, they originally looked like this rather than mini facehuggers.

That's interesting, I did find the decision to use facehuggers in the final edit a bit strange.

Whoever decided the cocoon material idea should be cut was a complete idiot. I think fans are waiting for things like that only not to get it every time there is a new movie.  Something visually disturbing that doesn't have to be gore.
man....the day we get a great alien movie is the day they a new franchise of something else.

I dunno, acrediblesource. I think the sight of Alien's jizzing cocoon material all over everyone might be a bit too comical.

All this awesome concept art and they couldn't bother to put it in the Artbook.

I was leaning towards the "it would've been unintentionally funny" angle...
and then i remembered that there's a moment in
It Follows where the lead character glimpses the "creature" forcing itself upon the corpse of a friend.
And it's horrifying and uncomfortable...

There's also a similarly uncomfortable scene in Possession (starring Sam Neill).


Bottom line - The effectiveness of the "cocoon" idea depends on the writing, filmmaking, etc...
But i actually think it could be used "well"... there IS precedent.


I wouldnt trust Ridley with it, though.
Maybe David Robert Mitchell.

Does anyone know if there's any final rendering shots of the new xeno chest? The maddam tussauds video has a beautiful sculpt of it but not all that great of a view of the thing

These are great. Especially the Neomorph. LOVE those human looking jaws.I Like them a lot better than the ones on the final design. Speaking about, I wish we would be show some of the actual final designs...

This is the ONLY shot i can get from the madam tussauds video, and imo it looks way better than the practical suit. Its a shame that odd creatures didn't get the finalized design

The facehugger and alien embryos are awesome looking!!!  If those were made into paperweights or something along those lines, I would buy those in a second.

There is some interesting, some good, some disappointing and some intriguing work here. My question is: Why isn't Ridley commissioning any practical (read: in clay) design work? The realism is never as strong in real-world pieces because it's not usually painted or lit etc, but more often than not, the design work is stronger. These recent movies have been suffering somewhat in terms of strong design when compared to the original.
