Early concept art for the Neomroph in Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant by Colin Shulver has made its way online! Shulver has uploaded a ton of work he created for Alien: Covenant to his ArtStation page! The concepts below depict both early designs for the new Neomorph alien as well as renderings closer to what the final design became. Some of his designs gave the Neomorph more human-like traits, which may have been a fascinating alternative.

Be sure to visit his ArtStation page for more!

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.

Treat yourself to some Alien Merchandise!

The third image is very Species like, love it!

Right? I was hoping we would've seen a "spawn of Shaw" with that kind of humanoid / alien aesthetic. Would've been crazy!

That nose one!! That makes me sick, it's wonderful. I can't stand holes, they are disgusting which makes that a terrifying monster. 


EngineerAdmin22767 XPJun-28-2017 10:35 AM

Yeah, it symbolizes decaying flesh in a way and we're programmed to be turned off by that. Definitely an effective design choice.

This is something brutal, I hope Ridley Scott will use it in the next movie:

"Right? I was hoping we would've seen a "spawn of Shaw" with that kind of humanoid / alien aesthetic. Would've been crazy!"

Certainly ;)

I think they could have dealt with Shaw better, and gave more hints that after some event, that lead to Shaw being experimented upon.. he infected her to Give Birth to a Trillobite Type Organism and then in turn removed this and then infected her with this Trillobite...   which lead to a Deacon like the 3rd/4th images.... or even the first TWO but then have it the rest of the Black Goo David had infected Shaw with Evolve her into the 3rd/4th images.

The First TWO are indeed something very much like some of the alternative Deacon Concepts from Prometheus.

As far as the Neomorph in the Banner, and last images i really LOVE this design and i cant help but wonder what a extra Budget to allow for better CGI and some Close-up Practical Effects could have done to allow the Neomorph in the movie to Live up to the Designs that these Concepts show.

I think a higher budget and we could have seen a Live Action more realistic version of the image above.... but what we ended up with was a less realistic and poorer Render compared to the above Concept...

These are incredible, great design and detail.
