    Default Twisted Horror (Alien) - My Beloved Grandpa Xenomorph

    Ciao guys,
    I finally got some inspiration, my work will be based on one of my favourite movies, Alien.
    The basic idea is simple, an old peaceful Xenomorph, round glasses on his long head, with a little Ripley on the legs reading a book of some goodnight stories (I still have to choose one, proposal are welcome!). I will also put James somewhere, the ginger cat. I am already working on some concept and poses, I will upload staff soon.

    Here my first wip!
    I've started to sculpt the old grandpa.
    The round glasses changes completely the mood of the character, in a good way of course!
    But he is still too young for my eyes, I will try to put some detail to make him older.

    A first attempt to pose the two characters together (the xenomorph still needs details).
    I hope this week to finish all the assets (book, little table, a desk lamp) and the ginger cat.

    Already looking fantastic - love the style. Are you going for a sigourney-esque girl? How about if Xeno's inner mouth was popping out with some dentures on the end? I'm pretty sure that's every grandad's party trick.

    Thanks foxtrotzulumilkshake, your idea is super! I will think abut that
    I would like to do some change in the girl, to make her look more Sigourney.
    It depends from the time, that's flying away!

    Here another wip, a looong tail and a book.

    I'M LIKING THIS. IT HAS A SOFTNESS THAT CAPTURES A MOOD, WHICH IS NOT EXPECTED IN THIS STYLE OF ART.
    I ALSO LOVE HOW HES' TURNING THE PAGE WITH HIS TAIL.

    Cant wait to see more.

    love this style and love the little Sigourney she looks like a doll. can already get an idea of the emotion coming from the alien. Something seems off a little on the lower part of the little girls arm but other than that a hell of a great sculpt already and the idea is to die for love it.

    Good luck and have lot's of fun with your story!

    Very nice style, I'd suggest that little Sigourney have a toy load lifter in her hands, and perhaps a pulse rifle leaning up against the chair to boot.

    Keep up the great work! Lots to get done in less than two weeks!

    This made me laugh when I saw the glasses and the expression on his face. Really nice work.

    Thank you guys, I didn't expect so many comments on my first post!
    Here some updates, two new characters will animate the scene, that was pretty static, chasing each other.
    Now the question is:
    Who is the hunter and who is its prey?
