How did we miss this remarkable Alien model test footage?!

Occasionally when browsing for Alien news we stumble upon material which makes us go - WOAH. Today is one of those days. While digging up news on the upcoming Cold Iron Studios' Alien online shooter game, I stumbled upon an ArtStation page where one artist had uploaded a Xenomorph model rendered using zBrush. Ironically, the artwork and video is about 5 years old! To my account however, I do not recall seeing it shared on these forums or on social media during that entire length of time. (It may have been shared in these forums already but I may have missed it - so if you already posted it please let me know in the comments and I will give you proper thanks!)

The artwork is by all accounts remarkable and the test footage is thrilling and terrifying - as any Xenomorph footage should be. Check out the work below and let us know what you think in the comments section!

An Alien test I modeled practicing Zbrush some years ago, then David Cordero(BLR VFX's animator) and JJ(BLR VFX's big boss) finished doing that awesome small video.

Credit for this remarkable work of art goes out to SadgaS on Artstation! Well done!

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.

It's a nice enough monster, but

- the small number of fingers make it look crippled. The original Alien was scarier.

- An Alien is scarier if it doesn't snarl or howl like a deranged dog. Slavering in virtual silence, like the original, is far more menacing. Screaming in pain, like in Aliens, I can accept, and they are cool. The screams are part and parcel of being a self-serving deadly monster.

I like it. It reminds me of a cross of A3 and Resurrection- and of course Covenant. Oddly, some of the breathing sounded like a Predator.

Beautiful work, I hope to see more from this artist and the people he works with!!
