OvomorphMember26 XPDec-20-2012 2:20 PMWorking on this all day today with relish. Got the bumps, lumps and cracks going and it's all coming together faster than I thought. Hoping to get it finished by the end of this week and then I can lay on some flakey skin effect, but it will be minimal as I'm quite proud of the 'ossification' surface bone-effect detail I've strived to get. More photos on Sunday/Monday.

Ridley Scott will eventually tell us how the Queen was born. Right now we have the Deacon; coming soon the Mercury, the May and the Taylor.

OvomorphMember26 XPDec-21-2012 7:58 AMThanks again all. Even though these photobucket pics below say 'complete' still not sure before moulding. Not sure if I want to have the proboscis cut away or whole - is this 'broken trunk' shown in the film anyone? I'd better check the blu-ray and see. Still undecided as to wether to put a coating of mummified skin on too - it may spoil the skull detail. I could do a very subtle coating as a compromise. Hang in there everyone, I'll decide soon.

OvomorphMember0 XPDec-21-2012 8:59 AMI like the subtle shapes shown on this sculpture. Would any coloring destroy the details? In any case it is a great project. I don't recall seeing a broken probiscus..

OvomorphMember0 XPDec-21-2012 1:23 PMHR Giger air sprayed the original in Alien. Remember though at that stage he was thinking in terms of an exoskeleton, which has now been altered to a helmet. So you may want to study the new images from Prometheus. I say that because I don't remember the space helmet in Prometheus having micro fractures that suggest the human skull with all of its wiggly natural fissures. I just remember that the texture on the outside head was old looking and maybe a crack or two but not with skull like patterns. PS its awesome either way.

OvomorphMember26 XPDec-21-2012 1:35 PMThanks Indy, Cerulean and Nostromo. @Cerulean - I was referencing a combination of the SJ from Alien and the one from Prom with the bone cracks, but I have refs also of the bare castings which seem to have bone-like ossified surfaces and holes. It's the usual artistic licence on my part to not get the work TOO film-accurate, so hey, why not a bone suit? I love old bone formations much the same way Giger does.

OvomorphMember80 XPDec-21-2012 7:58 PMZetaReticuli: your work is brilliant! Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Today I have been dedicated to post on as many topics as possible until I pass out from drinking too many beers.

The Anunnaki were on the earth in those days--and also afterward--when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, mighty men of high reno
