    We're all familiar with all the stages of the Alien... Face hugger, chestbuster and warrior. I thought it might be fun to show the stage between a chestbuster and the adult version. ;)

    I started with a fetal skull casting as a base to start the sculpting. I'm not really trying to do a "screen accurate" version of any particular Alien, just my version. It's been a fun project so far! I'll be posting pics as I make progress.

    My plan is to have him in a sort of fetal position when it's complete. My final plan is to have him so he can be mounted in a bell style glass display.

    Thanks for looking!

    i can see it now:.........then there's this teacher alien with glasses on at the front of a classroom filled with little aliens at their desks.
    as she holds the bell jar into the air....the blackboard in the background reads: "sex ed 101"

    lol

    lol, but wouldn't Sex Ed 101 fit more with the face huggers? I see it more like recess and the aliens are crawling on the Jungle gym! :D Chasing a baby Ripley while she is on her small power loader. (Made of cardboard boxes)..etc * I want that set! lol

    Thanks guys! I'm hoping to get some more work done on him this week...

    And I'm totally digging the idea of a lil' Ripley in a cardboard powerloader!! Sounds like a "phase 2" once I get this done! ;)

    You could also do the Alien DOG from "Planet 51" movie. It pees acid. Dog style.

    Being a 'teen' alien, would he have grown his back tubes yet?

    Thanks, Tim!! I'm a little surprised myself .... And yes, he'll have his back tubes in... Barely! And I've got some fun ideas for the mouth(s) as well!

    I FINALLY got some time to rough in the side detail on the head. Again, not really sticking to a particular version, but I do really like the more organic feel of the later Aliens. Min planning on having a clear dome as well. Feedback welcomed!

    Thanks for looking!!

    Got both sides roughed in... I'm pretty happy with how it looks. Next step is to go in a detail it and trick it out. After that I'll be running the tubing" around the edges of the head that the clear dome will sit on then the lower jaw, teeth and inner mouth!... Then, it's on to the body!

    LOL! Car crash, huh? Hopefully the really awesome, spectacular kind of NASCAR-ish crash and not the mini van meets a semi on the highway kind! ;)


    I'm currently adding the "tubing" around the head now... this is what the clear dome will be sitting on. I'll back it to set the all the current sculpted sections then it's time to move onto the mouth/teeth, lower jaw and inner mouth!

    Stay tuned!!

    Roughed in the "tubing" around the head where the clear dome will sit... I'm starting on the lower jaw next.

    Finished up the "tubing" for the clear dome and moved on to the upper palate and "baby teeth"... Of coarse he'll need braces when he's a little older. ;) Starting the lower jaw next!

    Re: My take on the Alien as a toddler! UPDATED 5/22: Upper Baby teeth & palate

    Thanks you!!

    Here's the latest... Finished up the lower jaw, now I just need to "sculpt" it into the lower part of the head and add the tendons on the sides of the jaw that connect it to the head. I'm starting the inner mouth as well. Once that's wrapped up, it's onto the body!

    Thinking about the body, here's where I'd really welcome some input... would it look more fitting to do a typical "chubby" baby body and appendages or remain a little closer to the adult and have him be rather skinny and boney looking? I'm tending to lean more towards skinny and boney but I'd like to hear your thoughts.

    Thanks!

    Re: My take on the Alien as a toddler! UPDATED 5/25: Lower jaw finished

    The "adult" Alien is also skinnier and more boney than a human, I guess. So it would be normal if the toddler alien also is skinnier than a human toddler... This picture could give some inspiration:

    I actually have that reference! That's a cool piece!! I'm leaning towards "skinny" as well.

    Finished the inner mouth... I decided for ease in moulding because it's so small, I would leave it closed... and with it be a toddler, no fangs yet hence the baby teeth. Let me know what you think. (And yes, I know it look a bit phallic-esc )

    Wasn't that the whole point behind Giger's original design?

    - - - Updated - - -

    This looks brilliant! Would this be the dog/ox alien because it fully formed instead of the traditional "snake" shape of the chestburster?

    ice always know that about the head shape, which mine definitely has somewhat the "look" as well... It's when I had finished the inner mouth, there was no question! LOL!

    I was just not happy with the way the inner mouth was looking… To me it just doesn't say Alien unless the inner mouth is open. Plus, I thought the first sculpt looked much too simplistic. I'm digging this one!
