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

Hmm I'm not sure, if so I don't think it would be quite as long as a normal Xenomorph

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. :)

I THINK HE IS SO CUTE! He may have a solid skin now, and he might be all-growed-up and stuff, but I think he is super cute still!<3
