Xenomorph by uncannyknack Xenomorph by uncannyknack
WIP of Xenomorph head study. Just fuddling around trying a few things here and there. Will likely migrate the lessons I learned here to another more interesting piece.

Omg, I was drawing a xenomorph and searched it on the Internet to see its design and I thought this was NOT even a drawing! Best xenomorph drawing ever!

Oh and if it ends up on my page don't judge too harshly it was on paper and my first close up on a xenomorph.

I have always loved the design of the alien.  I've seen countless renderings and very few seem to capture it properly; sometimes awkward or over-designed.  You nailed it.  This is perfect.  One of the best I've ever seen.

LOVE that you incorporated the original 'skull' design under the dome of it's head like in the first movie. This is lovely......just wish it was bigger and I'd put it on my bedroom wall. :)

Gorgeous work man, I want to be able to paint like this one day. :D Love this bad boy's (girl's?) teeth- come to think of it, the gender of the aliens never was explained to well in the movies, was it?  Aside from the Queen, that is.

That's cause their genitals grew legs and ran around face-raping astronauts. :P I have the feeling they are all female too... except that Aliens established that xenos behave like a social insect colony, with a Queen who lays all the eggs while warrior aliens defend her, build the hive, and capture victims for implantation.  If we take this analogy further, perhaps there is a male "drone xeno" who exists only to fertilize a young Queen and then dies like there is with terrestrial ants and bees.  We never see a hint of one, though, so perhaps not.  Too bad... it would be cool if they had one.

Honestly, the films just invent a new xeno form to spice things up whenever they want without much consideration for building a coherent picture of xeno biology. :D First we have a lone alien that terrorizes a bunch of space truckers all on her lonesome, and is shown encasing them in a hive in a deleted scene.  So she works just fine on her own.  Then Aliens introduces the Queen form to spice things up... and all the warrior xenos have a different head 'cause Cameron was concerned that the original type would break in the action-filled scenes.  These gals would be lost without their hive.  Then we get a Queen facehugger and a dog alien.  And then Prometheus comes along with its ancient aliens and black liquid that mutates people and spawns monsters.  Which apparently have no connection with the eggs found in the original Alien movie.  So they just kind of make it up as they go along. XD

can I inquire as to what program(s) you used to complete this? and how on earth did you find such lovely textures, or did you texture it by scratch?

this "wip" is an absolutely fantastic piece. I think the only thing that might slightly be off is the amount of drool? those things are like a waterfall from what I've seen. pff, but it takes nothing away from the work, and you likely considered that already anyways

If that's fuddling around, I'd be interested in absolutely serious? What type lessons did you learn here? I'm breaking into digital anime myself! Looking to start my own comic series! Here's a complete shocker - HUGE Aliens & Predator(s) fan! Lol :D

It's more about finding a consensus on essential design elements and bringing them all together. The Xenomorph is such a bold and iconic open-source design - and because of that we've seen so many outstanding variants and permutations of the basic formula - I'm looking to find a best of solution made up of all the cool parts of each of those iterations

Very profound! Extremely insightful! Truly appreciate the knowledge for further enlightenment! Is there a name for the specific software you used behind the Xenomorph piece?

Aww the Xenomorphs the yoshi of the stars with so many tubes and armor looking shells it's hard believe they're not a tech based species.
