Beautiful Butterfly by Arrancarfighter Beautiful Butterfly by Arrancarfighter
A sketch of one of my favorite characters from the "Alien" franchise, the "New Born" from Resurrection in what I imagine it might have looked like given time to grow and mature.

I made it look similar to an Xenomorph in the theory that as it matured it would take on more of their characteristics, its skin forming hard like an exoskeleton-type structure.

I figure if it hadn't been killed and would have grown it would without a doubt be the most powerful creature in universe of the series, and probably very large.

Its really sad that it died, I thought it was really cute and if I would have had control over it like she did I would have let it live.

Cute is a weird way to put it but she would have been a cool add in to the series. Instead they introduce a baby with potiental then killed it

The first time I saw the movie, I thought Ripley killed the Newborn in order to protect the people in the Betty. But now I think Ripley killed it to save IT from scientists who could capture it on Earth, made horrible experimentations or and transform it in a weapon. :3

I agree, it was an obediant alien and obvously had maternal instincts. (at least towards the mother...) And I bet it would have been very strong, with intelligence of a human and strength of an Alien. :)

Though the bottom half freaked me the hell out... o_o

This is a great concept! I loved the alien newborn. It was so incocent and sweet at first.
I can't say what style of alien or xenomorph I like best. Probly Giger's original, but this idea for the nerborn is just spectacular. :)

Got to say, I love this guy too. I'm kinda sad that due his unique creation that we will most likely never see him again. He really did mimic how humans would act at the time when they are first born, so innocent...in a monsterous alien sort of way.

Too bad this guy had one of the most painful deaths in the entire series...that was terrible.

Same here! I saw all the Alien movies when I was like 12? :O and have been dying to see them ever since. I finally got around to buying the Quadrilogy about 2 months ago and watched all the movies. Haha, it's funny comparing my memories to what the movies really are xD

I know, people are divided/torn over how well 'The New Born' stood up as a character, that it had pathos, etc. I quite liked it myself, and the special effects in bringing to the screen were amazing :)

Well said, and I like some of Jean Pierre Jeunet's other films, for their visual flair ( which I understand he has a hand in designing the 'look' of!) ;)

I like the fact that you drew the newborn but...Most powerful? I am VERY iffy on that.

Have you heard of the Queen Mother? The queen that basically connect all Queens together and controls them? She would disagree with your strongest statement. ^^; yes, I went geek on you.

:iconarrancarfighter:
Arrancarfighter Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't know. Honestly I had forgotten all about those, but looking it over i'm still not sure. The Newborn was able to take the head off the queen right after it was born.. if its anything like the Xenomorph in terms of evolution it would be akin to the "ChestBurster" stage of life, which would mean the final product would be much larger and stronger.. even if it were more of a "Human Infant" stage you'd still think it would grow much larger and stronger as well..

I can't say for sure as I'm not very familiar with the Mother Queen really or its size or power :(

I read those books! The Queen Mother is very unique. Though I have forgotten that it even overshadows the 'opinion' of Empresses. I basically thought it WAS an Empress because I believe an Empress is a Queen that has lived for so long that it adopts a new intelligence. There is only one Empress in the entire universe.

First time I saw an Empress was in AvP2, read about the Queen Mother in ALIENS.


I think we're both geeks... :x

Allow me to 'clear the fog'.

When a planet has more than one queen there is a fight for dominance. The winner evolves into an Empress. The Queen Mother, as seen in Female War and Genocide, is the undisputed ruler. If there are somehow 2 Queen Mothers, then it will be all out war until one of the 2 hives is destroyed.

Right. I just recently read about that on the website... now it makes sense when I played AvP2. Not really sure why it didn't come to mind. Hm.
