Ripley, Last Survivor (panties edition) by ivewhiz Ripley, Last Survivor (panties edition) by ivewhiz
Another homage to my most-truly-favourite movie franchise. It's part of a series of 4 illustrations I did for each "Alien" movie. My concept was to give it a feel of an animated show or comic books - la Batman Adventures mostly- and put Ripley as the main focus. These movies wouldn't have had the same impact on me without Sigourney Weaver (who signed my "Ripley Paper Doll" artwork on my birthday and made me the happiest fanboy ever :squee: inkjava.com/images/inkjava-sig… ).

For each illustration, I helped myself with some photos to get Ripley's outfits right and that's about it. I forced myself not to watch the movies prior to working on the artwork so that the decor would be a honest and personal interpretation of what rested in my memory. It also gave me more freedom while sketching out the composition and I think that would be a good thing for animation purposes and making it more fun.

*This version is an alternate of the spacesuit version. I wanted to be sure the spacesuit would have good proportions so I sketched out Ripley's body underneath. It took just a bit of extra time to polish so I did it just for kicks. Even tough it was a funny alteration to make, I was hesitant because I don't understand the purpose of using women this way in movies. However I fell upon an interview with Sigourney Weaver from 1979 where she explained it this way: "What could be more natural than to take off that sweaty thing I was wearing, like a snake shedding its skin." alienseries.wordpress.com/2013… So I made peace with it. :meditation:

I don't know why, but I've always felt that Sigourney Weaver's jawline was a turn-on.

This scene is literally the most terrifying and claustrophobic in the entire film - trapped in the Parasite with the Thing with absolutely no back-up or even weapons!

The scene with Ripley fumbling around in the ship in her underwear symbolizes her at her most vulnerable. She's gone through Hell, and lets down her guard... only to discover the Alien is onboard with her.

It's a very powerful scene, and one of my favorites.
