Haven't painted one of these guys in a while. I adore the first two films and Prometheus wasn't all that bad. Let's just forget about the rest of the alien atrocities though.

Easter Egg
Find "HR Giger"

This is just so good. I love the Alien series, liked Prometheus alright and got shivers looking at this. Great job.  :D
I've noticed a sudden jump in artistic quality from 2009-2012. Was it primarily schooling you think? You've become such a talented and professional artist! :heart:

Awesome art. I only like 'alien' and Prometheus. I used to like Cameron's approach, luckily, he is a sci-fi fan, artist, and made an effective story, in the only direction he could make with it, but, I find myself growing less and less fond since.

On a different topic: it's been recently revealed that this species is the degraded or impure/unclean form that of the deacon/ultramorph created by the Engineers.

I always loved the Alien movies, H.R. Giger, and the Mythos behind the Xenomorphs, and the Predators, so I love this image, but I think Prometheus(the movie) was a pile of poorly thought out, poorly written(how the hell dose the guy with the map get lost?), overly artsy-fartsy crap that fell short at maintaining much(if any) continuity with the other films and not only left more unanswered questions that honestly i don't know if i even care to see answered...

Riddly Scott needs to just step away, and let James Cameron makes a better sequel again.. [/RANT]
