Prometheus and the Proto-xenomorph

There are many beautiful things in Prometheus but the protoxenomorph left me unsatisfied:

.So, I painted my own version
I dedicate this post to Ray Bradbury who taught me that we ARE the martians.

I've heard your lectures using the xenomorph design as a metaphore for rape countless times, and I still feel my design lightbulb turn on. Thanks for showing me how it's done. (now I just gotta start doing it. lol)

p.s. I know he doesn't have a copyright on the 'alien penis' concept, but the spinal structures remind me of Paul Richards' constant sketching of them. HAHA

I couldnt understand why the one in the movie didn't have the back tendrils. I get that it was the proto version, but i figured that was standard for its species. Whatever. Love your design.

I agree - the proto-xenomorph looks like a mean version of Dino from the Flintstones... I really like your rendition

i prefer the one in the movie, it looked underdeveloped, possibly malformed. brilliant drawing though, your amazing.

This is excellent. I had the same reaction to Prometheus, so many great things about it, but it fell short.

Kyle Brown said...

Love it! Feels more Alien than the actual final proto did!
