The Last Engineer by Jumei The Last Engineer by Jumei
I saw Prometheus twice and I really, REALLY enjoyed the movie. Especially the Engineers tingled my senses... I can't stop thinking about those elegant, pale, beefy aliens
with their black, piercing eyes. They remind me of old Roman statues, their faces look like marble, carved in a classical style... Very alien, but similar in a strange way.

I did my best capturing the mysteriousness of these beings. So here's the 'Last Engineer'. I tried getting his armor(?) as accurate as possible,it was a lot of fun.
I really like the organic feel to it. It's a lot easier to draw than metal armor.

Also, my first fanart again since 5 or 6 years!

I'm glad some one actually liked that movie. Everyone in my social circle did not like it :/

Either way, this work is lovely!

I haven't seen the movies but I enjoy Giger's work and I believe this was a prequel to Alien, so I can definitely see his influence here too.

Lovely work. =)

There were so many elements of the movie that I enjoyed in and of themselves, the Engineers were definitely at the top of the list.  They really do have a knack of occupying the mind.

You did a great job on his skin and face, I really feel that you've captured him well. Good job!

If they do make a sequel, I really hope that they focus more on Elizabeth getting her answers. That would be amazing.

so amazing! Love the atmosphere I get when I look at this painting, I loved the movie when I first watched it, but after the second time I began to wonder what the hell just happened :P Hell, looking at this, I wouldn't mind being his only friend in the universe just as long as he doesn't rip off my head XD

One of the most amazing representations of the Engineer i've seen out there. There is something so sad about him it makes you wonder....
The aureola around his head was a brilliant idea too

Dude that's amazing artwork, well done...the engineers are amazing!!

A fun little tidbit: part of the greater world Ridley Scott imagined for these films is the idea that Jesus Christ was an Engineer; the idea essentially being that the Engineers created the human race as part of some sort of expirement, but humanity evolves in a way they hadn't wanted. They send one of their own to try to set things right-and he is promptly crucified. Thus, the human race is deemed a failed expirement and slated for destruction, explaining the Engineers apparent intent to target earth in the film.

Very nicely done. Very accurate. I had a dream with them in it, just like this.

Your Picture fits perfectly what i imaged the Engineers would and should be like.
Alone and sad... but also strong and intelligent.

There is so much expression in the engineers face, and you also captured the biosuit fantastic.
Great Work.

Ah! I just love how you captivated the smoothness of his skin like a solid piece of marble. Job well done my dear.

You know, when I saw this movie, I was actually briefly disappointed that the creepy, grotesque, elephant-nosed aliens turned out to be giant bald albino guys in weird spacesuits.


Then this guy showed up toward the end and that was pretty much it :P

I didn't think it was possible to mix the highly advanced, intelligent superbeing-like alien with the hulking, monstrous, villainous kind, but somehow, this movie pulled it off. And it was AWESOME.

Anyway, beautiful pic. It really captures the likeness. Super detailed..and yet, there's a softness to the piece that really makes him look elegant...and the look on his face...oh man, does he need a hug! He'd probably break me in half if I tried, but it might be worth it :P

Really stunning work!

Beautiful. I think you captured the organic feel to the armour very well and your style is so elegant, it suits him perfectly as like you said, they look like classic roman sculptures.

I wasn't aware that Prometheus was connected to previous alien movies but I saw the trailer and have been really stoked about it. I have a fondness for creepy/handsome alien-type creatures so I think your picture just thoroughly captivated me

Your description is really delightful too, I find I'm even more excited to see the movie now
