Alien derelict by RadoJavor Alien derelict by RadoJavor
Now something different, as a big fan of alien movies this is my vision of some new prequel story. This is a second alien craft discovered on the orbit of an unknown planet. Exploration vessel from earth just starting to search the artefact.
I had a fun by painting this. I love spaceships and especially old an broken ones. Hope you will like it as much as me.
Done all in PS and wacom Intuos 4 in some 25 hours.

This is AWESOME.... And I just finished watching the prequel (reboot? Relook?)... Seriously, I just finished watching it for the first time about 1/2 hour ago... This is an awesome take on the idea of what Prometheus was trying to convey (in my opinion, anyway)

Question for you.... Is this the one with the full on aliens on it?

Asking because Prometheus stated that the planet was LV223, but ALIENS stated that the planet the aliens were found on was LV426.... I like to think this is THAT ship :D (Because I'm a freak and the first thing I noticed about the new movie was the planet designations didn't line up)
RadoJavor Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2014  Professional General Artist
I think this is the different one.

Brilliant work.

I love this! And the human vessel definitely fits into the overall design of the universe.

Fantastic work! And I can understand the Halo thoughts as the vessel looks similar in design to some from the game...but this is straight Aliens.

That is...I can't describe it.
AugustusImperator Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow! This reminds me so much of Prometheus, it's creepy! Did they steal the idea from you, lol?
RadoJavor Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2012  Professional General Artist
I wish, but doubt that:)
Hoch-Spannung Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012
I think your work is much better in fact! And it has much more of the original "Alien" movie atmosphere to it. And it would have been so much better if "Primetheus" team looked for such concepts instead of what they came up with by themselves. Hollywood seems to be in a deep creative crisis and is experiencing severe idea shortage in sci-fi genre judging by rescent movies. I really enjoyed first three Alien movies and I like Alien universe but seeing how bad AvP series are and that Scott is going for a Prometheus siquel I wish they just stop abusing Alien franchise and making more of those movies (Logicaly they should have stopped after Alien 3). Unrealistic expectations ofcause. Sorry for grumbling in your commentaries.

Have you watched Stargate: Universe?
They had an awesome old spaceship in that show,
It's called ''Destiny'' and it's old and broken;)
Too bad the show got cancelled:(

Oh and awesome drawing:D
solarnova1101 Featured By Owner May 30, 2012
That is absolutely beautiful. I hope the guys who created Prometheus were inspired by this as well! :)
Hoch-Spannung Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2012
This, in my opinion, is far better and more creative than stuff Prometheus team came up with.
r-williams Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2012
Agreed! especially when it comes to the engineers..
Mistikfantasy Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
it's huge! like a planet! this make me fly with imagination, even the other "Ancient Spaceship" give me the same feeling. Prometheus?

Beautiful, the only thing I can see that could be improved is the god rays from the light source, I mean tweak their direction because they could use more depth.

Not that I could do any better XD
RadoJavor Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2012  Professional General Artist
that's possible but at that time I cant do it better
JHudson49 Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2011
stunning work, I love it!!!!

YOU are irresistibly awesome!

Do you like Halo ? Because the Halos are some kind of titanic space structures that are millions years old...
jakspigot Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2011  Student Artist
looks like HALO
Carceri Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011
Kids these days, they only know about Halo...
jakspigot Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011  Student Artist
Axtually, I've never played the game before, I've only seen the wallpaper on my friends PC.
SneakyTree Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I like it! the organic nature of the ship is perfect, the scale is very easy to see, thanks to the asteroids. the lighting is very nice, again the asteroids look great. fav!
snore23 Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2011
This piece is amazing. I am a big fan of the old alien movies as well, and I think that this really captures the essence of the derelict spacecraft.
ovidiufratila Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2011
Mind blowing!
Flics Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2011
Incredible take on this ship!
Hoch-Spannung Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2011
In my opinion this is on par with original Alien derelict scene. And the lightning is just amazing.
FiorinaMina Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
This is really spectacular. The color scheme is more ALIEN 3 than the first film, but still looks fantastic as ALIEN concept art goes. The scale of this is breathtaking! Stunning work.
sthiago Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2011
very good, besides all that my mind can think about being normal.

Canīt tell how much I adore this picture. It catches allot of my thought about events before or after the original ALIEN. Great and stunning work. Cheers!
Lecteur Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2011
great !
AnEnemySpy Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2011
The exploration vessel looks like the frigates from Halo.
Cm7372 Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2011
Amazing picture, did you design the ships yourself ? I'd love to make a 3d model of one in the centre
