Bad Alien Adult designer's

Its the company that made the aliens from Alien 3, Alien R., AVP and AVPR.

  Amalgamted Dynamics: Sadly Ridley Scott didn want to use their experience on alien mechanical effects and suit in favor of using CGI in all scenes where the xenomorph is involved:

Cockroach headed Alien.

  With all respect I disagree: Covenant is the worst design: As someone have said a bladn ultraskinny human figure with a penis head. It lacks detail and elaboration:



  I would alway preffer the steamlined look of Jeunet´s swimming aliens

I don't mind the skinny limbs, I just don't like the texture of the skin.  And the flimsy tubes.

The Resurrection Alien's gelatinous garbage. No elegance.

The above's a superior streamline, organic Alien.

 Those two things bothered me too.
 It´s a terrible design.
 At least H.R Giger loved the Ressurrection xenos.

  I disagree.It has no elegance on his design neither his way of moving.

Actually Giger didn't, I remember reading that he called it a piece of sh*t or a turd or something like that. I don't remember the exact phrase he used.

“I always wanted my Alien to be a very beautiful thing, not just something disgusting, not just a monster, but something aesthetic. Throughout the creature’s evolution what they’ve done is change it from something aesthetic to something that looks like shit – I mean literally, it looks like a turd.”

Now that does not look good, I remember it looking better on the movie. I might need to finally watch Covenant for the second time.


  Judge yourself:

Texture/skin looked better on the movie than on the statue, the 4 legged running bothered me more. I like my aliens standing up like men, not dogs.



Skinny aliens can look fine, the ones on Labyrinth were good. Its about what they are made of, aka being goddamn biomechanical.

  Yeah I was wrong, I remembered he claimed be credited on Ressurrection so I though he endorsed the new design, but I didn´remember the rest of the information.
  The Covenant alien texture is horrible instead of loo like a exoskeleton it looks like a body with its skin peeled of  what suggest vulnerability and weakness.

H.R Giger's correct. The Resurrection design's trash.

The MPC Alien's a beautiful creature, man's animalistic distortion.
