Alien (1979)
...
The original classic. One of the greatest movies ever made beyond a shadow of a doubt. The blessed toil that went into every detail is what ultimately lends it magic. In the most brilliant move, two distinct worlds were created by separate minds: the exotic, semi-organic, bio-mechanical alien world created by H.R. Giger, and the gritty, utilitarian, and oddly homey human world by Ron Cobb. Big Chap ftw. Everything looks great, even by today's standards, and most of it is fully functional!!! The whole set was enclosed like an actual spaceship, for example. The only thing that looks remotely bad is bukkake Ash over there, and even then... Also, the actors seem to be dying in real life in the same order as they do in the movie... Watch out Tom...

💢Inspiring|Artists: Part 15💢
•
Ron Cobb
•
The most influential artists in my life are the ones working on my favourite movies and Ron is right up there.
•
He not only helped design the iconic Delorean from „Back to the Future“, but also worked on „Alien“, „Star Wars“, „Conan the Barbarian“, „Total Recall“ and „True Lies“.
•
He has a wonderful sense for realistic exterior and interior design of all kinds of technologies from the future. You just need to look through the different designs he made over the years to see how much attention to detail he gives to his work.
•
Not everyone knows that he was the original writer of „ET“, which used to be called „Night Skies“ until Spielberg changed the premise of the story and took over. •
•
I always loved Cobb for his vision and has inspired many concepts yet to come.

A couple heavy hitters 🔨 from Japan! (And two favorites from my collections)

Roland AF-100 Bee Baa from 1972 and @justinishmael Galligantus, based on the 1968 Famous Monsters of Filmland cover. 
The Bee Baa is a dual headed giant fuzz with 2 distinct fuzz modes, and a treble booster. While the Galligantus is...well, a dual headed giant!

My AF-100 is all original, and works great aside from the occasional need to clean the stomps, and the missing top plate (I will be making a replacement soon)...Swipe for gut shots 🤘🏼 #rolandjapan #vintagefuzz #ilovefuzz #treblebooster #beebaa #af100 #pedalsandeffects #pedaltvchannel #guitareffects #vintageeffect #fuzz #roland #guitarandbass #effectspedals #distortion #heavy #doom #2headsarebetterthan1 #galligantus #fuzzmonster #justinishmael #roncobb #famousmonsters #sofubi #madeinjapan #japanesetoys

Concept designs for ALIEN (1979) by Ron Cobb and Mœbius

Taking a break from "Horror" movie month to watch this 80s 'cult classic' THE LAST STARFIGHTER (1984). The CGI may look dated but for it's time this was ahead of the pack in a pre CGI/Digital movie world. Directed by USC and John Carpenter alumni Nick "The Shape" Castle, and starring Lance Guest (HALLOWEEN II), Catherine Mary Stewart (NIGHT of the COMET), Dan O'Herlihy (HALLOWEN III Season of the Witch). Production Design Ron Cobb (ALIEN). #thelaststarfighter #nickcastle #catherinemarystewart #80sscifi #80scultclassic #roncobb #johncarpenter #lanceguest #danoherlihy  #dvdcollection #dvdcollector

Alien (1979) behind the scenes. This is the Space Jockey set which almost didn't get built. 20th Century Fox didn't want to spend money on building a huge set that would only feature in one scene, but conceptual artist Ron Cobb convinced them to keep it in the film, stating it would be the film's "Cecil B. DeMille shot", i.e. more than just a B-grade Sci-fi

Still on a Star Wars jag. Been going down multiple rabbit holes related to the originals recently. I'll just say this. The cantina scene melted brains back in '77. One huge part due to the unique original creature designs by all artists involved. I think Hammerhead was a Ron Cobb design? Filthy. The best sci- fi scum and villainy ever. #inktober #inktober2018 #inkdrawing #ink #starwars #starwarscantina #scumandvillainy #zebrabrush #traditionalbrush #analog #roncobb #makesomething

The Abyss (1989) Directed by James Cameron.
Ron Cobb concept artwork for Deep Core.
The idea for The Abyss came to James Cameron when, at age 17 and in high school, he attended a science lecture about deep sea diving by a man, Francis J. Falejczyk, who was the first human to breathe fluid through his lungs in experiments conducted by Johannes A. Kylstra. He subsequently wrote a short story that focused on a group of scientists in a laboratory at the bottom of the ocean

Ron Cobb concept artwork for the inside of the alien pyramid where the eggs were originally discovered, seen here around the base of the alter.
Originally, only six eggs were to be present in the egg silo under the derelict ship, but Ridley Scott stepped in and demanded that many more were required

“Connected to your hands, you cannot disconnect. You try to live your life, but it blurs your visibility. You pretend to know, the real world from a fantasy. But you live so far from reality. The black mirror will always see through you. Social senses impaired, physically declined. Self esteem diminishing, thank god for your followers. You always try to show this life that's full of fortune. But the truth is that you’re so far from it.
