This was just a pre-made figure. I decided to add some glaze in certain
areas to add shine and definition. I think I like the result.




*Part of my "One photo a day for an entire year" Project.

You captured the hostile yet mercilessly cunning feel of the Alien design perfectly in this photograph. Well done.

Perhaps soon :D I actually have quite a few alien figures, but this one is probably my favorite.  I'll try to shoot some photos of him soon :D

I know it's a xenomoprh ;) especially considering I've been a long-time fan of the film franchise (plus, they're scattered all over my room)

I got into the movies because of the action figures, my dad let me watch these and I was little. I had nightmares about Aliens for years afterward, because those movies scared me so bad, no other nightmare before or since has ever scared me nearly as much. Took me years to overcome that nightmare, starting with using the opposite of fear, courage, which didn't always work. It wasn't until I learned how to Lucid Dream that I really began conquering that nightmare, just knowing I was dreaming gave be everything I needed to finally take back dreamland and since held it.

Thanks for sharing your story ;) I got into the Alien films because my dad had me watch it with him when I was younger. But instead of being scared of the first film, I was completely entranced (and of course, I totally missed the huge phallic symbol when I first saw the alien - I just saw a super-awesome monster) :giggle:

I'm sorry to hear that the xenomorph gave you bad dreams though! :noes: That's no fun. I had a similar experience with Nightmare on Elm Street. For about a year I didn't want to fall asleep in my room alone because I thought "Freddie" would come get me. But when I convinced myself he was totally not real, I started sleeping more soundly.

And that's funny that you mentioned lucid dreaming, because I've experimented with that myself (although for entirely different purposes than yourself). The human mind definitely has more power than we humans give it credit for ;)

I'm aware of the hidden symbolism of the Alien, its why I call them dickheads or more profanely fuck tails, and todat any Colonial Marine would use use those words if they were real, though if real id be tempted let a few non-egglayer Aliens loose in Tehran, Pyongyang, Beijing, or even Tokyo.

If this comment you've left me is an aim to get a rise out of me, I'm afraid to say that you have not succeeded. Perhaps it would do you well not to be so assumptive in the future. This figure was cast from an existing figure (minus the articulation points) - just for personal practice (and to keep in my personal collection) and as I've had it for awhile I decided I wanted to do something with it (so I just added various craft glazes on it to enhance specific details). This photo shoot was merely to practice with some new lighting gels and other assorted equipment. The only "photoshopping" done here was cropping, adding a bit of a vignette and adding my watermark. ;) You may want to ask questions first in order to properly educate yourself on a given piece and/or situation, for future reference.

Cheers.

So I presume you didn't make it. It's a little unclear in the description.

I have this toy too! (although the one in the photo is a cast)
It's my favourite alien toy/figurine. I love how detailed and big yet light it is. :love:
The colouring on the Predalien was meh though...

:iconmonsterbrand:
MonsterBrand Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013  Professional Photographer
yes, it's pretty darn awesome ;) Even though it's not articulated, I think it is my favorite too (although the tail has drooped a little on the original over the years).

I never did get to see the predalien in this line of alien figures (but I do have the one that was created by NECA I believe - that one is ok).
