Let's see...a huge spaceship with three suited up people who are leaving after exploring it. It's been there awhile 'cause of the grass, or whatever you desire it to be, is growing on it. And it's really windy because of the sand, so the people have to be careful and take their time to see where they are going. That's what I see. Someone may see something else. Ah, the wonders of art. Very well done.
i put in a good amount of time last night and didn't find it... but, Giger has so much art out there. i would hope the 'judges' repsonsible for DD's would be careful of such things, but i also know how virtually impossible it would be to catch it before submitting a piece as a DD... tough call.
I went through my "Giger's Alien" book, which pretty thoroughly chronicles all of the pre-production archives of the original movie, and I can report that this piece, although similar to several different pieces in the archive, is NOT a rip at all. There are elements from two or three of Giger's ideas, but it IS this artist's own representation. It's similar, but not a copy. Good to know
