Dane Hallett was one of Alien: Covenant's prominent concept artists, along with the likes of Matt Hatton and Wayne Haag. While I visited London for the world premiere for Alien: Covenant last month, I got to meet up and chat with Dane briefly about his work and his artistic process - really cool guy if you ever get the chance to meet him yourself, very down to earth and a passionate Alien fan at heart. It was fascinating to learn about Dane's raw and somewhat gritty approach to drawing inspiration for his work - it's very much like that of the late H.R Giger himself. His concepts for Covenant and the artwork featured in this post are especially evident of that unique artistic inspiration.

With Alien: Covenant having released in theaters last month Hallett, along with other artists have begun to share a lot of their work from the film online. We have already featured some of Dane's work previously, along with others, but as new artwork is unveiled, we can't help but bring attention to it.

Dane also worked with fellow concept artist Matt Hatton to provide artwork for some of Covenant's post-release marketing, which featured a number of biological creatures which had been infected by the Black Goo bombardment on Paradise. Although these mutations were not shown on film, this artwork helps expand the scope of David's effect on the local ecosystem and just how diverse and mutable the Black Goo Pathogen is.

Hallett continues to treat fans with new pieces of work from his time on Covenant, along with some phenomenal behind-the-scenes photos of the film's sets through his social channels. Be sure to give his Facebook page a LIKE to show your support and to stay up to date with his latest unveilings!

Well I'm not sleeping well tonight. This is just really creepy. 


MemberNeomorphJun-12-2017 11:09 AM

I'd love to see Mr. Hallett create his own Alien film.

Bloody awesome, those ROCK!! Some are uncanny in their Gigerness!!

Here's Giger's original egg cross-section~


MemberChestbursterJun-12-2017 12:49 PM

Those things were outrageous!

Absolutely mind blowing.

What a talent. Regardless of inspiration his work shines so bright


MemberPraetorianJun-12-2017 3:13 PM

Fantastic work! This is my favourite:

What are they? Two facehuggers? But they look different. A previous step in the evolution? A male and a female creature?


MemberDeaconJun-12-2017 4:27 PM

Some Fantastic work there, shows the true scope of the Black Goo had they chosen to showcase its mutations more rather than just seeing them as concept work in Davids Workshop.

Its great to see some of them now come to light more clearer for us to all look at.

I love the Dr Shaw one... very Bio-Mechanical and you can see what we got was a more toned down version... i see Davids Experiments included Evolving Dr Shaws Busts too lol


MemberPraetorianJun-12-2017 6:52 PM

VERY cool and satisfyingly 'ALIEN' works, TY for posting these!!


MemberFacehuggerJun-12-2017 10:41 PM

I love all these artworks, thanks for sharing


ModeratorPraetorianJun-13-2017 12:04 AM

wow so many beautiful designs. such a shame and a waste they were never utilised :( 


MemberOvomorphJun-13-2017 8:05 AM

@IRaptus.. I totally agree with you. So much of pre-production work went into this movie yet we didn't get to enjoy any of it...WTH????

Dane has major fricking talent! That stuff is crrrrreeeeeppppy! Wow , I don't ever want to get bit by that mosquito thing. Much more realistic than sentient flying nano spore goo. Shaw could also have been used better in the film that a half second viewing of her modified corpse. All this talent and Ridley just ****s all over it. Come on Fox, find any body else, hell, give this artist the keys.

Fantastic artwork! Shame about the film


MemberChestbursterJun-29-2017 9:28 AM

Wow, these are amazing! Can you even imagine possessing this sort of talent? Masterful.


I'll look at these before bed, next time I'm hoping to have a good nightmare.
