predator32″ x 40″, Acrylic on paper, 2006

This painting is based on my favorite alien, “The Predator”. I saw the first predator movie when I was 7 years old. I think the predator is a genius idea, everything about him is cool, face, mask, weapons, technology, tactics, codes of honor, His race kinda reminds me of the warrior societies that existed long ago among native men. I like the fact that he only hunts the strong and doesn`t pick on the weak. He`s just a well created monster, probably Stan Winston`s finest creation. I think Kevin Peter Hall played the part the best in the first two films as well. I drew this predator while I was watching Predator 2. I had to pause the movie every now and then to get a closer look at certian features. – Riel Benn (click on image to view larger version)
