  • Xenomorph Queen Head Views

    This is my best drawing of queen's head. I think I captured teeth perfectly..





    These are two older images where I rendered teeth as snake fangs

    "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

          Exeptional work.

          Seeing them however reminds me how much I wish they had done Vincent Ward's Alien 3. (though the extended one is better than the Theatrical version)

          I think the watering down of his very different take on the story largely wrecked the series.
          I have the wings for Bingo.

            Erm, yes. Although H.R Giger only designed the Alien for the first film. He had nothing to do with the second film featuring this Queen. Check out the Alien section here:(Giger Official Site) It even includes the apologetic letter he recieved for being left out of Aliens. And dont get me started on the way they treated him in the the third film!

            Sorry, I'm a bit of a Giger freak Or should that be Giger Geek

              Giger geeks unite! I remember when Alien first came out, I put together a huge noteook of every article related to the film I could get my hands on. I'm also a big fan of Species; not necessarily the movie itself, but I thought Giger's designs for Sil were brilliant. I remember makeup artist Steve Johnson talking about one of the phone conversations he had with Giger about the little gir Sil's transformation into a cocoon, and he said it started with 'pickles' erupting from her face. Needless to say, this puzzled Johnson for a while, because he couldn't understand what Giger was talking about. In the end, they discovered that it was a language problem and he actually meant pimples!

              And it's probably too late by now, but when I was in London a few weeks ago, our local HMV was selling the Alien Tetrology box set for an astonishingly low price, like 20-odd pounds. Worth taking a look for anybody in the UK who took a pass because it was too expensive.

                Except for a print of one of Alan Lee's Lord of the Rings paintings, the only pictures that decorate my study are Giger prints of his Alien and Dune concept art. I had forgotten about Sil. I shall start looking imediately.

                If you mean the 'Alien Quadrilogy' boxset, they seem to have come down a lot in price since they released the special edition in the shape of an Alien head. (when I bought mine, this version was only available in Japan - I wish I had waited!)

                  Yeah, I meant the Quadrilogy set; I just can't bring myself to use the word, so it's a made-up word and I tend to use the real one.

                  And Bone, if you've never seen it, I heartily recommend Species Design by H.R. Giger (Titan Books, 1995, ISBN #1-85286-660-8) It's a beautiful oversize book that came out for ú19.99, packed with 88 pages of Giger goodness. I'm not overwhelmed with some of the badly reproduced photos from the film, but the book is absolutely packed with hundreds of sketches, designs, models, etc. I've given you the info for the Titan edition (UK) but I believe the original edition here in America was released by Morpheus, who used to put out some gorgeous art books. I seem to recall pickingup my copy for three or four pounds at one of those book remainder shops, like Book Warehouse or something like that. It's probably still around on one of those used book sites on the web.

                    I have a few of the other Giger books, some are better than others, but I've not seen this one before. Thanks Joe, I shall be tracking it down

                    And, just to get back on topic before Jan slaps me again, and starts a new thread I think these drawings are quite good. I know how hard the Alien is to draw and get acurate. Believe me I have tried. In fact when I used to draw alot, and was stuck for inspiration, I would usually end up sketching the Alien 'Derelict' ship from the original film. Its such a cool design

                      Yep, it's still quite an astonishingly good bargain

                      Especially as I paid ú50 for it
