"You've been a part of me for so long, I can't remember anything else." -Ripley, Alien 3

Pencil sketch and ~20 to 30 hrs in photoshop CS5. I could spend even more time on it, but it would be polishing a turd at this point.
I wanted to upload something I was actually satisfied with. Still not quite sure I succeeded.
