If you’ve been reading our sister site Nerd Approved, you know we’ve been geeking out anything to do with Neill Blomkamp’s Alien concept art.
Hollywood effects artist David Woodruff took this dream of ours a bit further with the help of his father, Tom Woodruff Jr. who worked on both the Alien and Terminator franchises.
The photos were shot using part of the set from Alien: Resurrection and Michael Biehn’s actual armor. Woodruff said the make up took approximately 2 1/2 hours to apply. I’m thinking Biehn wouldn’t mind the chance to bring Hicks back to life.
Head after the break to see more pictures from the make up test.
There’s lots more in this interview over at TheTerminatorFans.com. It’s a fun read.
