Aliens Poster

I had to redesign a movie poster for my digital imaging class. Since I've been obsessed with the ALIENS series since I was about 8, I chose to do a tribute to the entire saga. This was probably the least painful painting I've done in a long time, A) because I've been drawing these bastards for years and B) I used the burn/dodge method, which is an old and very familiar way of painting for me. This design isn't from a particular movie, so much as my own interpretation based on the various types I've seen from the movies and comics.

The only thing wrong with this poster is that you can't show monster of your horror flick  in full grace. But it'd be awesome for a collector's edition cover.

So weird. So cool.

Beautiful, man. HR would be proud. But probably remain quite stoic and moody, in his HR Giger way.

This really taps into Giger's genius, its so disconcerting. I also like the bronze sheen on this creature as well. It really brings out the inhumanity.

Finally, I like the leg. You think its an arm, but its a leg.

Keep up the good work! +fav!

Love this piece. I too from a young age was all about the 'Aliens', this honors that series very well.

Now lets all hope that we get a GOOD Aliens movie in the future at some point!

TY! We will, Ridley Scott is directing the next one!

I heard that the Alien Prequel was put on hold while he is directing Prometheus, which MEANT to be the Alien Prequel. >:/

No no, it is the prequel for sure! They are even using the Space Jockeys from the first movie.
