Theme #117 for 17 september 2004 is: H.R. Giger’s Alien

The objective is to model anything relating to H.R. Giger’s original concept of the very popular Alien franchise. This also includes the alien ship, facehuggers, xenomorph, chestbusters etc…

You can find a good source for reference by simply typing “Giger + Alien” in the Google image search.

P.S. it would be fun if elysiun had an alienlooking emoticon.

plant person: the movie Alien, Aliens Alien 3 and alien reserection are all based off of HR Giger’s alien

All of a sudden these topics get uninteresting, i’ll just be on the sidelines observing the entries. :-?

All of a sudden these topics get uninteresting

Um…how can anything relating to H.R. Giger be uninteresting?

So this cant be about Predator? He did create that too didnt he?
If so PlaceHolder for sure.
If only Aliens, then possibly.

OMG! Someone finally picked this as a topic! I can’t believe it! lol. I have to place. :stuck_out_tongue:

Hi all,

I wasn’t sure how many people would be fond of my topic but I thought I’d give it a try. It would be nice if everyone could stay as close to H.R. Giger’s original vision of his Alien creations as possible.

One of the most notorious things about Giger is the Bio-Mechanical features that can be seen in his work. So try and think bio-mechanical.

Rememder, if you’re not all that good with modelling things that are organic, you still have the alien ship and the eerie landscapes to model as these were also the stunning work of H.R. Giger.

Althought the Predator has long been associated with the Alien franchise due to the release of numurous games, comics & films, the Predator was not created by H.R. Giger. However, if you feel that you can’t make any contribution related directly to Giger, then the Predator would be acceptable due to it’s strong association with the alien franchise.

well I hope that’s cleared things up a little.

Happy Blending :wink:
