a dignified xenomorph

Dear Lazyweb,

I have finally decided what velvet painting to commission. But first I need to come up with an image for them to work from, and that's where I need your help.

I want a picture of Giger's Alien, but I want him wearing a top-hat and monocle. Possibly sitting in an overstuffed chair.

I seek the assitance of the lazyweb in finding a good source image of the alien onto which these other items can be easily photoshopped. I'm finding it surprisingly difficult to google up a picture of an alien with its head at a usable angle.

    Have you (or anyone else) tried DeviantArt?

      His request is nowhere near furry enough to merit leveraging the deviantART talent pool. If he were looking to commission lactating squirrel-people, that would be the ticket.

    I was hoping this was another Cheeta painting. What could be better than an alien painted on velvet by a monkey?

    Tried Alien Loves Predator? You might even be able to convince Bernie to do the dress-up/photoshopery for you.

    I think fetaltoaster might be able to help you with this. He does a lot of image mining for his work. I shall forward your entry...

    I've always wanted a Last Supper with a Crying Elvis Jesus and Dogs Playing Poker for Apostles. I asked them, but they said it would cost.

    Here it is in a tuxedo; throwing a top-hat on that seems pretty natural. But what're you looking for, a 3/4 shot?

    Where does it wear the monocle? They're not big on eyes...

  8. giles says:

    Oh fine - crap all over the velvet medium with your good taste and style.

    Where do you put the monocle on a big shiny phallus anyway?

    ... or the top hat, come to think of it.

    httf and I have decided that the second head should be smoking a pipe.

  10. I'm convinced that xenomorph needs to be crossing its legs and holding a cane in its right arm.

  11. latemodel says:

    Oh, also, it should still be dripping. You need something that still conveys menace.

    At the mention of top-hat and monocle, my thoughts immediately turned to dance scene with Peter Boyle in Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein. The Alien angle sounds familiar...

  13. tedlick says:

    I'll dig it out, but off the top of my head I think that there was a Dark Horse comic written by Nancy Collins which featured a tuxedo-wearing Alien on its cover. Circa '93?

    I went looking for Aliens-related photos in Usenet, and instead, immediately found a drawing of the Alien fellating the Predator. Remind me never to look for anything in Usenet again. Rule 34!
