'Alien' graphite drawing by Pen-Tacular-Artist 'Alien' graphite drawing by Pen-Tacular-Artist
A graphite drawing of the xenomorph 'Alien. I have also done a graphite drawing of the 'Predator' to compliment this [link].

I decided to alter the drawing slightly from the original reference. Firstly i lifted the head a bit, so that i could open the mouth more and clearly see the second inner mouth. i also lifted the arm and moved the tail. And lastly i added saliva to the mouth, and the gunk on the tail was supposed to be blood but it could be from a human or another species or a synthetic.

Here are some of my other 'fanart' graphite drawings.





Drawing was done on A3 bristol board using standard and mechanical graphite pencils.

This is the picture that i referenced [link]

Massive respect for the drawing-technique used to
create this Alien. It is almost Giger-esque in black & white
but not really, because this is clearly inspired by the movies instead of the art books

It captures the spirit of the very first movie exactly with the dark and almost hazy tone (Smokey tunnels?). I love the reflections on the head as if they were from one of the Nostromo's distant corridor lights, and this alien is tucked away in some service tunnel having just made a kill and has dragged away it's prey. (Which might have been as human or a synthetic humanoid)

Lot's of Alien artwork on DA, which is why I gave it 4 starts on originality, but this one will be first in my favorite folder for a
long long time :)

I must say that this piece was chillingly realistic. I am a tremendous fan of the Alien Series, enjoying the fear and the sense of power they radiate. This drawing exudes the same as the creatures on the screen. You have done a tremendously good job with this, I half-thought I saw the bloody thing move, so that tells you how good the drawing is.

The detail on the inner jaw is fantastic, and the ridges, bumps, and organic shapes on the side of the head and upper mantle, plus along its back are most faithfully recreated. Congratulations.

Just a quick question, were you planning on doing one of the facehugger or queen? I would especially like to know if you had or were going to do one of those, or the Marines in Aliens. That would be cool.

You are a fantastic artist sir, and I commend your ingenuity and workmanship.

When i see art like yours it makes me want to torture and kill myself becuase i know i will never have anything close to your talent. YOU. ARE. GOD!!! Your work, each piece is absolutely breathtaking!!! It reminds me of the comic book artists Adi Granov. He has a similar realistic style, but i think you may actually have him beat, becuase yours is absolutely immaculate!!! I cant even imagine what it must feel like to create such astonishing art like yours. You are an actual professional artist, Peal!!! I have never in my life seen such exquisite pencils!!! Goodbye, i am gonna go slit my wrists now.

I would normally say that it looks adorable, but I think you may have heard that one too many times.

I adore that lighting and shading though; it helps so much to give that chitin-like texture to its exoskeleton. It is also so neat and clean to an expert degree. It's fairly evident that so much time and effort went into this; it's magnificent.

I'm not sure you would be saying that, if he was actually standing there right in front with his mouth wide open like that.
