Step 1.

Begin with a round shape for the head and then draw in the outer shape of the body as well as the guideline that in the middle of the head, and moves down completely.

Step 2.

Begin sketching out the ripped carnage of human tissue that is torn to shreds at the base of the chestburster's body. Take your time so the skin tissue so that it comes out the same way you see it drawn for you here.

Step 3.

Using the outer guides that you made in step one, draw the actual body, and head shape of the chestburster. The open mouth and detailing to under the face should also be added.

Step 4.

Here is where it will start getting a little tricky. Start this step by tackling the mouth of the alien first. Draw the inner gum line like so for both the top and bottom jaw. Next, slowly draw in the razor sharp small teeth and make sure when you do   

Step 5.

Believe it or not, but you have come to your last drawing step. Here you will sketch in the final detailing to the aliens body. Start by drawing the bone structure on the side of the head, and then sketch in the stretched tissue lines that is on the

Description: Hello one and all, welcome back to another fun, and extremely awesome tutorial that is definitely going to knock the socks off of some of you Alien fans. Since I have been drawing and uploading some of the alien forms from the movie, I thought I would go ahead and make a lesson on "how to draw a Chestburster", step by step. As you know chestbursters is a result of a facehugger dropping an alien embryo down the throat, and into the chest cavity of a host which is almost always human. When a facehugger comes off of its host, the person usually doesn’t feel any type of pain from being suffocated, and violated from the facehugger. All one will experience is a sore throat, some nausea, and the massive urge to eat. It takes anywhere between one hour, to one week before the embryo grows into a chestburster, and then bursts from the chest of the host. They look like miniature clones of the full grown version of Alien when they are born. They have silver colored teeth, and they also possess some of the characteristics of their hosts, like the ability to walk on their hind legs, and even have mandibles or jaw structures as a human. Anyways, this is going to be a fun tutorial to tackle, but if you are a novice artist you may have some trouble tackling some parts of the alien’s design. The best thing I can tell you is to take your time as you proceed with drawing a chestburster, and when you’re done you can take a look back and go over how you did. Don’t forget to upload your finished work so others can see how you made out. Thanks for joining me once again guys, peace out and enjoy!
