Concept artist Colin Shulver adds next to his work showing a Planet 4 parasite:

’This little guy was modified & became a little background critter in Alien Covenant.’

Modified… Do his words mean that the facehugger was created from this creature?

Bottle label: ’DANGER - Do not open… Poisonous… No Cure - High Risk of Reanimation’

High risk of reanimation? Sounds like a facehugger description…

I think he means modified as in they modified the look of it to be used as a prop in David's lab (just in the background).

Weren't these the parasites bursting out of the Paradise jockeys?

Love it! That is a very ominous warning label.

Yes VivisectedEngineer, the warning label is not the first place I have read "reanimation" lately (also David 8's drawings).

This organism below looks very similar to the Colin Shulver bottled example.

And the X-Ray.

Nice topic again Ati.

The below Colin Shulver image from the link you provided above is amazing. Thank you.

Have I told you before that I love this stuff?

drucea - Possible!

TheXenoneoprotomorph - Who knows? :)

VivisectedEngineer - True! The whole image resembles Bishop's dead facehuggers from Aliens - a little bit...

Ingeniero - Thank you! You are not the only one, I like that embryo image very much.
