More aliens

Fluidic alien

An alien with a roughly fluid form

Extendd humanoid

Multi limbed alien. The drawing starts out as something abstract sciencefictional and then just extends and extends and so the head is just an elongated head with more faces added on to extend it and other features too and well, it just turns into the typical sort of thing that I find myself drawing. It's a sort of a joke about not knowing where to stop when drawing a face that continues to extend further and further forwards

Alien carrying a man
Alien carrying a human into the lair. The human body's proportions didn't want to make any particular visual sense just to perhaps make it ruined a long time before it was finished or stopped rather because this isn't finished, perhaps it made more sense that way anyway . I am the last to have much of a clue about these things.

Man carrying alien head

Man carrying an alien head from A to B, and something goes wrong on the way. He could very easily be someone walking through Trumpton or Chigley with his alien head under his arm.

Another Predalien

a) More of these images continue to manifest. Another Predalien or whatever drawing, this one seeming to break through a window that appears to break off into small pieces when smashed through. It would have to be some sort of fake glass.

b) Perhaps a photographer is in the way. Perhaps I've decided that the monster is nothing more than an oversized statue placed on a wheelie platform and someone had to push it through the window make it look as if it is doing something in the world of the drawing and it is dangerous because of the size, weight and presence of sharp parts. 

c) The other possibility is that it's someone crashing through a window with a canister vacuum cleaner above his head and no one could believe it was something so simple as that and had to believe it was a monster of some sort.

d) Beneath it all, it might as well be a sort of a central vacant phantom eye shape looking through from beyond, taking on the form of a monster, and it might as well have a vortex around it that the tail has become one arm of. but we're going to keep it in the shape of some sort of an Alien monster. Part of this drawing appears to be the fight to draw something distinguishable from all the other ink markings around it.

e) It might have been fun to have the thing busting a window at the local cafe, as if it's about trying to project a mythology into the local area, in the manner of Stanley Spencer.

Millennium Falconom II

Millennium Falconom II; Rather silly looking merger between the Millennium Falcon and Giger's Necronom II by way of the Tutenkhamun desert glass pectoral. Well the idea is that I came to discover that both the Star Wars spaceship and Giger's painting bore elements of shapes and forms  from the Tutenkhamun jewellry that was being exhibited in 1976 which was the year the Millennium Falcon was designed and Giger painted Necronom II. The merger probably doesn't particularly work other than as something that came out of a melting pot of ideas in space and I suppose other things have crawled in to it , perhaps chistmas tree baubles, to deviate it from its source ideas a bit. The cockpit of the craft appears to be the tip of a long phallic tongue.

Lincolnalien part 3, further ruminations

a)  Back to watching Lincoln's Alien
However 30th March 2016, I find myself watching Lincoln the Spielberg movie on TV and start thinking about how Dan O'Bannon's idea about the alien life cycle merged with Ridley Scott's idea about the alien life cycle, gives the impression of an ancient civilisation (See:Alien Explorations: Alien: Chestburster to young Adult) who have been turned into slave civilisation by the Space Jockey race who have decided to make use of the child state of the alien that goes into a dangerous state of blood lust before they develop into  a member of a civilised mild intelligent species, capable of art and architecture, which lives a full, scholarly life of 200 years. However the space jockey's genetic alterations stop the creature from turning into an adult.

b) Discovering the source of the alien
The space craft named after Lincoln which has an android aboard that was his simulacrum, discover the origins of the alien species, a birth temple upon a distant planetoid and they find out all the information about their origins as a race. They also discover that the alien biological weapon that was being explored came from this planetoid out there in the distance. Whatever it was now, to make it  someone had plundered the sacred remains of a once proud civilisation and re-engineered for their own gain and for the purpose of war,  Now it was in human hands, and there were  those who fear that they will get out of hand  and take over planets and ships like a plague. 

c) Abolishing the use of the alien as a bioweapon
What happens is that the Abraham Lincoln simulacrum attempts to abolish their use and development as a bioweapon by the human race.  There is a thought that he might have lost someone he considered like a son to the spread of the infection and it's mankinds fault for having tampered with these extraordinary alien creatures. Perhaps the Space Jockey had already engineered them as a species of war, but  just because they could be found within the derelict vessel by the human explores, it doesn't make it right to continue to use them as a war weapon.  

He regularly visits the derelict ship's pilot chamber looking for clues. He watches the mechanism of the transmitter going back and forth on its track as it had been for thousands of years creating its strange message and sending it across the galaxy.

Although the Lincoln simulacrum didn't have an answer to how they should go ahead as a species, he thought that they should be allowed to continue to sleep through the approaching aeons until an answer comes to the surface rather than misuse the species that should be an intelligent civilisation in itself.

Alien : Revenant

a) Pile of skulls
Watching the Revenant trailers, I began to pick up on the Alien trail in a very fragmented way but the pile of the cow skulls would have to be transformed into a pile of buffalo skulls at least in someone's drawing. Someone has been slaughtering them en masse and Leonardo De Caprio would have to be someone lost on this planet somewhere. Perhaps the impression is merged with piles of skulls from various holocausts such as the Jewish holocaust at the hands of the Nazis (Are we supposed to add the alien creature from Predator into the story to make this an Alien vs Predator vision. )

b) Fragmented associations being made with the imagery of Necronom V

While finding himself in a scenario with a group of other people trying to get away from native American attackers,  Leonardo Di Caprio pretending to be someone named Hugh Glass goes through the whole confusing dream of being attacked by a bear, being carried around on a sledge and having his son slaughtered before his eyes and then is buried alive, crawling around on the ground, slowly getting back onto his feet, being helped by a local native who puts him in a tent before the native gets hanged by the local French men and then he saves an Indian princess from being sodomized by a French man and he gives her a knife to do what he will with the French man.  There is a time when he takes the guts out of a dead horse and hides within for the night but none of this turns out to be real.

After all the talk about the movie trailer seeming to show Leonardo being sodomized by a bear, the truth is slowly revealed that he was sodomised by a local native American Princess who is a skinwalker werebear carrying an electrojack whom he accidently slaughters when being violated, but her bear like corpse as if absorbing his body transforms into a cocoon that protects him as a cocoon like tent and its skeleton transforms into a sledge that carries him around and its structure grows into him merging with him, and soon it grows into a humanoid creature the size of a horse in which Leonardo hides in womb like cavity within its body.

 Giger's Necronom V
From his protected body and through the beasts back grows an entity that's is an extension of him riding on the creatures back as a race horse jockey. Leonardo remains traumatised by the fear of having been sodomised by a bear but when he learns the beast is somehow female human, he feels much happier about the whole thing and is happy to allow her to do what ever she wants to to him with all her wicked ways and perhaps this is all too roughly inspired by Necronom V.

The time when he thought that he took corpse of the Captain Henry and propped it up using a wooden frame on the horse is the moment where he's experiencing a part of him growing as a rider on this strange semi humanoid female beast and he can't come to terms with the thing being somehow part of him, he had to imagine it as someone else and slowly it dawns on himself that it must have been himself all along, and that he must have slaughtered his own son all along imagining someone named Fitzgerald having done it in his place when all the death and carnage is over.

At the end of the story when the creature's life cycle is over, Leonardo crawls out of a cavity within the creature's body and the thing slowly disintegrates and he becomes scalped by a local American native tribe and slaughtered but by then he has completely vacated this life and can let it all go.

This female beast becomes the alien monster for the story rather than a typical "xenomorph" just aimlessly killing people.

(Yes, the idea of a man being saved and carried around inside a female alien creature  almost seems like something from Strange Relations by Philip Jose Farmer with shades of David Lynch's Lost Highway)

Mysterious rocketeer and flying giant typhonic beast

Mysterious rocketeer sighting, slightly inspired by the oddity of the mad looking videos of giant serpent like things in the Mexico airspace that are probably just robotically controlled balloons or something but at the day this is just another take on the Pakal Votan tomb lid, with a place for the cosmic bird on the head of the head on the tip of the ship as if it were a crest, and maybe I'm thinking of the huge flying reptile the Leonopteryx from the movie Avatar as well with a bizarrely crested heads which in the end seems to be more so the likely unconscious influence here, and Avatar managed to pick up on Ayahuasca imagery themes and perhaps this rocket here is part of those sorts of Ayahuasca associations

Typhonic beast from the huge Was-sceptre at the V&A museum merged with sea lion dancing to the tune played on a flute by a mutant flute player who might be playing the William Tell Overture fused with Jethro Tull's greatest hits. 

See: The Derelict Ship exterior(1978) (Was-Sceptre at the V&A merged with a barge of a million years by way of a sea lion with stingray gills) and Mordor IV (work 280) (1975) (Enigma of William Tell transforms into a spectre of the lead singer of Jethro Tull playing an aqualung that's neither a Manitou, a Manatee or Manta Ray but a sea lion with sting ray gills and mouth, !) at the Alien Explorations blog for notes about ideas inspiring this image
