Protect The Hive by ChristoMan Protect The Hive by ChristoMan
My Final peice of art before the new year more then likely ;)

A Flying Xenomorph has been stalking a local butterfly that landed on his hives moutain, waiting for the right moment to attack it. I like to think depsite the fact these creatures would kill relenlessly, they would still be up for a good game of tag with smaller and faster creatures around their planet :nod: 

I have been so busy recently with Uni. currently i've been making a documentary and writing a screenplay. so getting the motivation right now have been tough :nod: but I managed to slowly add to this peice which i happened to be motivated to do. so i got something done thats helped me overcome an art block :dance: 

For those of you who don't know or have simply forgotten :XD: about 2 years ago (yes it was that long ago ;P) I created these guys as part of a new collaboration between :iconshewolfey: and myself. An ingininous Flying Xenomorph hive that lived inside floating moutains, and lived off of tropical islands below. I have recently begun to set time aside to further create characters and strenghten the story idea as well, so hopefully it gets the same kinda support Battle Scared did :nod:

here was my original piece with the creatures basic info. i changed and added some new details as well ;)
Flying Xenomorphs  (information) by ChristoMan

I miss not drawing these bugs :XD: besdies the basic bio I did, a picture of them facing off with :iconthe-zerg-overlord: character Drag, and also fighting mine and :iconjkillyleagh953: Rachel. they have been mostly absent from DeveantArt :( I created the Xenomorph Flyers to be much more animalistic then my other OC's I have. having said that, that dosen't make them any less smarter :nod: I will do my best to represent these guys the way I feel Xeno's should be represented ;)........then add wings to it :boogie:

This is hopefully a change to Flinch Spacey. hope you guys and gals like it :D

Flying Xenomorphs created by me
Xenomorphs belong to 20th century FOX

Hello:
 Flying Xenomorph are indeed a version of them I have yet to see any often at all :D . This drawing is very cool, that alien (yet familiar) backgrounds just adds to the overall feel to it :) .

 And if a normal Flying Xenomorph looks that good, then maybeyou should really try drawing a Queen :D .

 Keep it up!

Konami did the flying Xenomorph back in the day,
vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/a…


and the flying queen from the toyline,


but more recently, we got some vampire Xenomorphs from a cross-over with Vampirella
www.dynamite.com/previews/C725…

the AvP comic had something similar as well, but it does mostly look like a non-queen that flies is pretty rare

Hello:
 Konami? yeah I can guess how a flying Xenomorphs can add extra thrill to one of their games, hehehe.

 Lol, Vampirella? I didn't think there were still comics of her been done XP . But that Queen looks great. About the third pic, I like the wings because they are not the typical dragon wings we see often :) .

yeah Vampirella and a bunch of others like Purgatori and Evil Ernie got bought and rebooted (Vampirella fairing the best from the reboots).


and yeah I love when they get creative with the Xenomorphs, one of the things James Cameron hated about the queen in AvP was how saurian it moved was redesigned, in the Aliens movie he had it move like it wasn't used to movie like an unsure chimp and had a deformed (evil feminine) quality to it he felt was removed from the newer design.

after all the idea is they are (alien).

 Vampirella was the best known (at least around here) so not the bigggest surprise :D ... also, reboots are the trend nowadays.

 The have to be that way, more alien, because it adds to the thrill of facing something that is really unknown.

I thought Chuck Norris already did that. So your saying they killed Chuck Norris. Do you know how epic that would be¿ Abraham Lincoln was epic now add xenomorphs.

I always love it when the artist can tell us the story to their picture.  I was thinking (by the title) there was a bigger threat to the hive and then to read the note that says it's just a friendly game of tag with a little-ol-butterfly, so darn cute!

And I give you both big kudos for the nice looking wings adaptation and AU concept.

Your detail is wonderful too.  I like the rockwall-climb with the tail out for balance.  Awesome.  Good tidings at the University.
