Hey everyone, I hope you had a fun and safe Halloween! Here's a tutorial for you featuring my favorite alien creature of all time, the xenomorph, from the "Alien" movies. This creature is also one of the main reasons why I'm a fan of H.R Giger, the artist that designed it. So, get your pencils and paper ready and give it a shot.

How to Draw an Xenomorph, Alien

STEP 1.

Start out by picking your pencils. I used an HB pencil for shading/sketching and a B pencil for dark shading. I also used a 6B pencil for the darkest areas.

STEP 9.

Now start defining your shading from top to bottom. You should rely mainly on a B pencil for all of the shading. Use a blending stump or tortillion to blend your shading. If you find yourself needing to make an area darker use a softer pencil like a 6B. You can also use an HB pencil to shade the lighter areas.
