The face and head are connected via articulating mounts to the 'body', which is more of a collar linking the head and the long legs. We kept going back and forth on the legs- should they be segmented and insect like or tentacle-like or what? Steven settled on the simplest and creepiest version, just the simple bending tentacle leg. I tipped them with the 3-fingered padded foot that was homage to the hands on the 1953 version's alien and the design was pretty much finished, shape wise. I started to introduce a backlit, glowing translucence to the head cowl in some of my illustrations, Steven loved these and we see that in the final film.
