Alien: Covenant concept artist Matt Hatton recently uploaded a bunch of rejected Elizabeth Shaw concepts he provided back when Covenant was in production to his Instagram account. The concepts showcase a wide variety of various manipulations of Shaw's corpse - ones that went unused. The following images are fairly graphic, but express greatly just how sick and twisted David had become. A number of the following pieces show Shaw having been transformed into some kind of an Alien feeding troft, while others detail more of how David might have used her natural biology to splice and incubate his hybrid creations. They all pose disturbing images which would have added great darkness to the film, but unfortunately very little of Shaw was actually seen on film.
David was a truly mad and sinister Android. Although Alien: Covenant has come to pass, discussion regarding its future sequels have been reignited since Fox was acquired by Disney this month. Many fans wonder if David's arc will continue on in Alien: Covenant 2 / Alien: Awakening as originally planned, or if his story will be cut short as Disney re-evaluate their newly acquired assets.

The future of Alien
The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.
