Alien Covenant: The Mouth Burster sack

leading from 

a) Damian Martin sculpted the the mouth burster sack, described also as a version of Giger's prolapsed stomach womb based on his artwork Emily James would paint up the hollow hot melt vinyl sacks.

  2. Martin sculpted a version of Giger's prolapsed stomach womb. Rob Trenton sculpted a baby Neomorph (Makeup Artist # 126)

b) I had set myself the task of finding out what piece of Giger's artwork they were talking about and then thought about the artwork for the vomit creature from Poltergeist 2 was used in the design for the Mouth Burster sack for Alien Covenant. In the Poltergeist 2 movie, it would transform quickly into a limbless humanoid that crawls beneath a bed and transforms into the great beast, which seemed to be fairly similar to the growth rate of the Neomorphs from Alien Covenant.

c) Later came an update from Odd Studios: "Poltergeist II concept art by Hans Rüdi Giger - The Vomit inspired the Mouthburster & Backburster created by @odd_studio & @creaturesincltd for Alien: Covenant.
