Digital collage. This is a bit of an off one, and the first time doing something ALIEN based. I've wanted to a do a Xenomorph collage for awhile, what images I was going to use, or how I was going to go about that was something I was unsure on.
I may have some extra ideas in mind besides this theme, but one night I had thought to myself how a Xenomorph might actually seem less scary if were made of cooked shrimp.
Xenomorphs were based off some combinations of Geiger's nightmarish paintings and some microscopic aquatic life. Making a picture of something resembling one, only entirely made out of shrimp and barnacles was fitting in a way.
The barnacles served as odd tubes on the body, and the nest. Shrimp made up most of the body excluding the mouth which was a selected image of an angler fish. I worked over the base of a Xenomorph statue image to try and get the details accurate.
