David can make a few of these out of boredom while the Covenant is en route to Origae-6. ;)

The Gigeresque Hunter is pretty cool looking. The other ones, not so much. I'm just happy with the look we have now but I would love to see Giger Hunter in an Alien game.. or maybe something along the lines of Scorn.

AAAWESOOOME! I'm a big William Stout fan and his stuff has always been an inspiration to me. It seems he's done concept art for all kinds of films! Every-now-in-then I find myself saying: "oh? He worked on that too?" hahaa.

(While Stout is well known for his sci-fi art... he is perhaps best known for his paleoart! He's done illustrations for a myriad of paleontological papers and official publications, murals for museums, dinosaur picture books and novels... the list goes on.)

That being said, I like the obviously theropod dinosaur inspired alien "hunter". You can often see dinosaur/prehistoric life inspiration in his creature art.  ;D

William Stout is a legend and a nice guy. Honestly didn't know he had a pass at the Hunter script. Very Cool!

That is so interesting! I really like the Gigeresque raptor! I wouldn't be opposed to seeing that show up in some other projects!

Updated with the original H.R. Giger piece director John McTiernan was likely referencing.

The Giger-esque one looks like one of rejected concepts for Fire & Stone

This giger-like predator can be the perfect incarnation of predalien, after decades of searching ::)

John McTiernan's desire to replicate the Giger piece provides additional insight into the thoughts behind Boss Film Studios' design I think.

Well shit, that even resembles the original biomask for the Winston Predator.

The glowing bubbles behind its sternum, I imagine that was supposed to be something related to the physiology of its heart?  It's pretty neat, almost like its chest cavity is filled with a fluid of some kind.
