Meet the Black Dragon Fish (Idiacanthus atlanticus).

As one of the most well known inhabitants of the deep sea, dragonfish became easily recognizable with its protruded jaw and giant, fang-like teeth. It can be found as deep as 5.000 ft (1.500 m) and despite the dreaded look, is not much of a threat to humans. With a size of mere 6 inches (15 cm), it can hardly harm larger animals, but nevertheless, fangtooth is a fierce hunter. It has to be in order to survive, as the environment it inhabits is harsh to say the least, with little or no food.

As a bonus I added a video with creepy fish of the deep 🙂

How crazy is that! That just goes to show that anything one can create in one’s mind can become truth!

Most people who have never seen them would see it as the vision of the artist. Site unseen, can also be possible.

Or he was inspired by them.

You’re right, but I think Ridley Scott explained his idea for the Alien to Geiger. Still, I’l give you this – the entire series of movies are full of “Geigeresqe” imagery and they wouldn’t have been nearly as good without Geiger’s creativity thrown into the mix.

I’m sure Ridley Scott would be flattered by your comment John but HR Giger is the designer of the Alíen!

Guest

Not for me..lol

I think the dragonfish was Ridley Scott’s inspiration for the chest buster. Just think of this thing tearing it’s way out of you chest…..
