This one is based on the Mantis Alien from the "Aliens" action figures from Kenner. I want to expand my xenomorph roster that I started with this artwork (fav.me/d660g9p ) so I explore some of those crazy toy designs by Kenner and Hasbro back in the 90's. ...I simplified the details on that alien body compared to the real toy because I keep in mind a convenient style for animation... if it would ever happen.
i'm guessing this a bug you can't squish! by the way nice work
Nifty. Any chance we'll see any of the Marines (toy or movie) in the near future?
I've been a huge fan of your alien art since you started putting it up, and these Kenner designs are fantastic! I was maybe a 'little' too old to be buying them when they came out, but I did anyways, ha ha. I was a dork in High School, regardless. I can't wait to see if you'll take these further with the Scorpion Alien and the Flying Alien Queen!
Aww man I didn't even know this existed yet I made my own version of the exact same thing!!
i use to have this one, lol crazy spot on, i can't get over it it looks even better then the actual toy!
Man that's some Kenner toys stuff right there, Love it!
It kind of reminds me of the chryssalids from XCOM.
