Wayne Haag is one of the many talented concept artists who helped bring Ridley Scott's vision for his Prometheus sequel to life with Alien: Covenant. Haag provided a lot of environmental concept work and for those who have seen Covenant already, will notice a lot of familiar scenery below. Although a lot of his work was used as a basis for scenes which played out in the film, some of his works wen unused - and interestingly enough offer some insight to some subtle questions many of you might have had after watching Alien: Covenant for yourself...

The Mother Juggernaut

That massive ship witnessed in David's flashback scene as well as the Crossing prologue footage was considered the Mother Juggernaut and seems to have acted as a docking / weapons deployment adapter to the smaller, more iconic looking Juggernaut ships. Wayne provided some remarkable work for this ship - very Alien:

The Forests of Paradise

The environment of Paradise was a constant setting for most of Covenant. Haag again, provided some great work to zero in on the overall look and feel the planet's surface should have. Light, but gloomy and a sense of complete isolation:

The Engineer City

Another focal point in Covenant was the Engineer city ruins. Littered with the charred bodies of these once God-like beings, Wayne created some terrific landscape shots of the city's gates and center.

One piece which sadly went unused, shows one of the stranded Covenant crew throwing a flare into the center crevice - the circular hole in the middle of the city - directly where David dropped the pathogen cargo - and also where it looks like the Mother Juggernaut is rising from in the piece posted earlier in this article. The following piece shows the center to house numerous other Juggernaut ships - leading to further confirm that the Mother Juggernaut's purpose seems to be a docking system, to bring incoming ships to the city's center housing hanger for storage.

More shots of the sparse city show us some finer details of the surrounding structures and Engineer culture.

The Crashed Juggernaut

One of my personal favorite sets and locations from Alien: Covenant was the crashed Juggernaut. Much of Haag's work on this environment was used in the film, as you can see below:

Considering some scenes in Alien: Covenant were rather dark, it made the surrounding landscapes and set pieces difficult to see. Concept art like this helps give us a more complete picture of what we saw on-film. 

I encourage everyone to visit Wayne's ArtStation page to see more of his work!

Thanks to Roger55 in the forums for the heads up!

I've always loved Concept Art for movies, it shows so much that could have been, and always fires the imagination :)

Beautiful work, all of those could easily go on my wall! I wish the movie took more time exploring the Engineer city. See more of the structures and try to understand more of their culture. Let's hope a sequel will return to Paradise to explore more of the ruins.

Great job! i like his pictures!

Well they definitely brought Wayne Haags art to life, as many of the scenes from the movie are almost identical to his key art paintings. His site is full of amazing concept landscapes and vehicles.

I agree, and the fact that Ridley has such a solid background in art makes it even better, as he knows what he wants and probably gave the designers a ton of input on how exactly he envisioned the world in which A:C takes place.

So many things in this universe I still wanna see. Hopefully it makes enough to continue.

It's really amazing to see all these CG art in film. They look so well made.

I have to say most/some of those didn't make it into the artbook. Unfortunately the art/making of book is more making of than art and is a bit disappointing this round. There was more to offer in the Prometheus artbook.

This is just painful, thankful for what we got however it all ends. Why can't the damn movie be 2hrs 20minutes. Not positive Ridley would have used it wisely but wow just a little more of this stuff woulda been killer.
