Sylvain Despretz' Skullship concept art for Superman Lives
echoes Giger's derelict ship painting


leading from

a) 29th September 2016
Realised that the skull face Sylvain Despretz's skullship concept for the unmaed 1997 "Superman Lives" echoes the structure of the arm from this painting of Giger's the derelict ship. The upper triangular part of the end of the arm becomes the nasal cavity on the skull. The main trunk becomes the upper and lower teeth although Sylvain would have made it much more rounded.

b) Further Detail
On the upper part of the top fin on the tip of the arm, there's an oval shape and the outer rim of this, Sylvain has turned into a fractured sort of a bar where there would have been a left eye socket. The horizontal pipes extending from the end of the arm to the right become transformed into a wide eye socket.
