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 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?

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.

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.
