Underwater Expeditions on Paradise

David 8 described in his notes more than once that he was fascinated with the double-ribbed characteristics of shells.

“A fascinating and gratifying discovery during one of my underwater expeditions was this gargiantian shell showing an almost caricatured spiraling double-ribbed fortification.”

David 8 was interested in double-ribbing "for structural integrity and strength whilst reducing mass."

David 8's notes below regarding the "Engineer infants" detail his evolving design for an organism's ribcage.

"Relationship of ribcage to organs has been progressing...", see above.

Concept Art

One other area that depicts an underwater expedition or the recovery of sea creatures contributing to David 8's experiments on underwater life is the concept art from Dane Hallett (organism) and Wayne Haag (water landscape).

And below is the zoom of the center of the above image. This Dane Hallett image (profile photo) does show familiar characteristics in the head shape and the protomorph head.

Thank you for that Ati and I still appreciate the link you gave me to the Dane Hallett page for the amazing concept art.

Thank you for your compliment Cerulean Blue. I hadn't considered this until I read "during one of my underwater expeditions" in David 8's notes...then, wow.

An underwater segment would be so great during David 8's studies. 

Most of the concept art (Dane Hallett) I found because of Ati...thanks again.

Below is an organism (Dane Hallett) that appears waterborne from Ati. I enhanced it to bring out the details of the "ribbing".

And a zoom enhance on the head.

This image below is another from an Ati topic (here) and it appears to be an underwater capture in 2099.

Ingeniero - Glad if I can help your investigation. I'm sure Hallett is working on the next chapter.

I believe you are correct Ati.

Notice the second set of jaws in the below Dane Hallett image?

Ati

Ingeniero - Yes, I did. I compared the images of this microguy and the rejected watermonster in a topic. This field microguy was part of the Alien Covenant marketing. I highlighted that the two monsters look similar so I jumped to the conclusion that Hallett is working on the sequel at the moment.

Thank you again Ati....I really need the prequel novel right now. 

Ati

Ingeniero - It is out now. :)

Amazon preorder reads "released on September 26"...so I will contribute heavily to important things in my life now that I plan on neglecting 5 days from now.

Ingeniero - There are people who have the book in their hands now. :)

Ingeniero - Ok, I see that AC needed a planet like Planet 4 (with forests, lakes, fields, etc) but the next movie should look more Alien - I mean I don't want to see plants, seas, etc, I want 'dead' planets, more spacesuits, more spaceships, asteroids, etc...

LV-426 was sure desolate and the films eventually tie into that planet Ati. So, we can both have our hopes up for more time in that type of environment and the technology needed to conquer it.

Here below is an example of early concept art from Prometheus: The Art of the Film, page 27, with another example for suits.

I would like to see some new landscape concept art like what Wayne Haag did for Alien: Covenant.
