Looking through some of the neat creatures that’s in all the Alien movies, I thought filling a request on the creature that is literally the second stage formation before turning into a full sized alien being. So, having said all that, let’s get busy learning "how to draw a facehugger", step by step. As I just said, a facehugger is the hand like creature that hatch out of the egg. The concept for a facehugger is by far one of the neatest, but ugliest things I have ever seen in an alien movie. It has these long bony fingers like legs which enables it to get around quickly, as well as wrap around the face of its host or victim. They also have these long nasty looking tails that are used for jumping far distances like onto a person’s face. The whole purpose or existence for the facehugger is to attach itself to a person’s face as it wraps its tail around the host’s neck. The more the tail tightens on the neck, the more oxygen is lost which then puts the person unconscious. This enable the facehugger to open the host’s mouth as it deposits an alien embryo within the cavity of the human. As soon as the embryo is in place, the facehugger automatically falls off and dies. If you remember in the first Alien movie, the crew attempted to remove a facehugger off of a friend, but it was impossible to do so without killing the individual. I find these things nasty, annoying, and real rank, but they are a ton of fun to draw. I think you guys will enjoy drawing a facehugger because they are easy to replicate, and make a fun addition to your Alien drawings portfolio. I shall return later but for now have fun with this awesome lesson. Peace out people and enjoy!
