I decided to sit down and work on creating a new variant of the Newborn from Alien: Resurrection.
I was thoroughly disgusted by the one which was used in the film, so I wanted to make a better version. ^_^
After about a solid hour of thinking I have fabricated my personal version of a better Newborn.
Even though it is a different version, I do not want it created as the one was in the film. Instead, I would prefer this variant to be man-made, created through genetic manipulation
I am very pleased with the outcome, and I would also like to know if it would be acceptable for me to use it in RPG's (and in general) instead of a standard xenomorph. I already received Dave's permission, but I would like to run it by the other Moderators to see if any of them object.
Anyway, here it is:
-Dark grey flesh
-Empty black eyes
-Face is entirely smooth, no contours
-No nose, no indentation
-Sides of head are pitted like a warrior xenomorph
-No secondary mouth, possesses a purple tongue
-Possesses cheeks instead of tendons
-Mouth is still fanged
-Sight patches on biceps, forearms, thighs, and calves.
-Tendons are highly visible
-Prominent ribs, hips, etc.
-Two primary arms
-Two secondary arms sprouting from the sides of the pectoral muscles
-Hands have five fingers
-Feet have five toes, with the fifth located on the heel
-Fingers and toes possess claws
-Tail is approximately as long as its body length
-Tail possesses a single claw
-Stands on the balls of its feet
-Reproductive organs are internalized when not in useBasic Attributes
-Very keen eyesight
-Limited sonic detection capabilities, mostly visual
-Possesses both a predatory hunger and a carnal desire
-Possesses a basic understanding of technology
-Is capable of mimicking and vocalizing basic words
-Prefers to use claws and teeth in combat, will use simple weapons when driven to do so
-Drawn to humans more than yautja due to physical similiarities and instinctual motivations
-Will move as a quadruped when speed is necessaryTradeoffs
-No secondary jaw, but possesses a secondary pair of arms
-No protective mesoskeleton/exoskeleton, but can make basic vocalizations and mimic words.
-Not as fast as some xenomorphs, but is extremely intelligentNote: This image is a rough draft, but the design will remain constant in future illustrations. I am aware that I messed up the legs.And thus I clothe my naked villainy
With old odd ends stolen forth from holy writ
And seem a saint when most I play the devil.
