Unused Shaw concept and other Alien: Covenant works by Matt Hatton!

Unused Shaw concept and other Alien: Covenant works by Matt Hatton!

Alien: Covenant continues to captivate and terrify audiences around the world and for those of you who have seen the film, we have even more, stellar concept artwork from the film to share with you today! Matt Hatton worked closely with our pal Dane Hallett on Alien: Covenant's various creature designs, specifically David's lab and his experiments. Hatton recently took the plunge and decided to join Instagram just a few days ago and he's already uploaded some remarkable artwork he created for the film! One of the pieces below depicts an alternative Elizabeth Shaw concept showing tentacles encasing her face and seemingly inserted into her head! Definitely a twisted and grotesque concept that many of us would have enjoyed seeing portrayed on film.

Concept work is one of the most intriguing aspects to a film, especially one like Alien: Covenant. These artists bring so much depth and creativity each project, it's remarkable to be able to browse their work, whether used or unused. Be sure to follow Matt on Instagram if you're on that platform and check back often for more news on Alien: Covenant!

I love how these pieces resemble the anatomy studies by Leonardo da Vinci, which perfectly expresses how twisted David really is!

Shaw turns around after all her travail, trusts David, and boom...he does something worse to her than the Holloway "infernal conception."

Shaw is with Hicks and Newt in Last-Minute-Redshirt Heaven.

I would like to see Dr. Phil grill Ridley Scott. Do an "intervention."

"I'm asking you, DO YOU NOT CARE about your characters?"

"OK. WHEN did Alien become Blade Runner. Because...if you ask me...that's what's going on here. And I don't think it's a healthy way to go."

"Look, I'm giving you advice. Whether you follow it is up to you. I mean, I ain't got no Dog Alien in this fight."

"David. Why. ... Well, the Alien movies are known for strong female leads, and...you just kill off Elizabeth Shaw. She was on a quest you made a real big deal of and you just dumped it like a one-night girlfriend. And lo and behold, here comes an American girl just like Eileen [sic] Ripley. But it's still all about David. And I...see nothing in him. I mean, he's a homicidal jerk, if you want to know how I really feel. He just kills Shaw. No explanation. We've got these great monsters for villains, and these real ambiguous new Engineer guys, but...suddenly David is the star. The villain. The cliche Bad A.I. He's the whole movie. He OWNS this franchise now. Michael Fassbender has put Sigourney Weaver in the shadows."

(Silence)

"Do you love him?"

I found it very frustrating that we barely got to see the vast amount of incredible artwork and prosthetic specimens on show in David's lab.

All that beautiful detailed work and most of it was barely glimpsed or never shown.

I've long been of the thought that there should be a Museum devoted to the Concept art and related materials for films, as we see here, such beautifully done work, it's a crime to leave it in the shadows of 'might have been'.

20th Century Fox and Ridley have completely lost it.

All the movies before and after Alien are a whole other animal and they're just pure pap.

It would have been terrifying to have a strange Gigeresque world, but now things are just too mundane. Skies, mountains, large humanoid people that don't look very alieny. The robot David being the focal point now is just all so incredibly MUNDANE AND NOT SCARY OR BIZARRE! I have given up all hope and have resolved that Alien is a stand alone film without sequels or prequels. Those other movies are simply what they are- OTHER FILMS. They are not scary nor are they interesting enough to be associated with Giger's world. The Space Jockey will always be a strange elephantine creature welded to the seat in the abstract Juggernaut space craft. The Alien monster will always be of unknown origin. What Fox and Ridley have decided to do with this bastardized franchise is just so God-aweful boring and stupid, it BOGGLES THE MIND! Seriously! Who cares about dissecting the xenomorph! We know enough, so LETS MOVE ON ALREADY! There is a large and scary Giger world to explore and we haven't even scratched the surface!

If you hope the next film is going to save this mess...

DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH!

I simply love this insight. Thank goodness that Matt put these out there for us to drool over. His works were part of the lab wall sketches and he was instructed to do them non-digitally eg pencil and charcoal, as David was only able to work with what was readily available on Paradise. 

His co-artst buddy Dane Hallet had some of his works featured too & his work adorns the cover of  The Art and Making of Alien: Covenant. I would love to see him get some of his stuff out there on Instagram too!

The book is reportedly to die for. I will look forward to dribbling over this book one day soon!

I cant wait to see the book with all of these so i can  actually make out and read what Matt has written as i cant make out his writing at all lol

Interesting concepts and indeed that one Worm looks like the alternative Face Hugger from Blomkamps Alien Awakening.

These are amazing! What is this book mentioned that these artworks will be / are in?

I recently received the art and making of Covenant book and very few of these drawings were detailed in the pages. It would be cool to see a book that contains all of the studies that David had.

David is Josef Mengele. He's a bastard and a murderer. And this is more terrible than all xenomorphs.

About Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant Movie

Release Date:

May 19th, 2017

Plot Synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
