Ripley Meets The Family by ivewhiz Ripley Meets The Family 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.

Here's a direct link for the other artworks:

I guess I'm a bit desensitized to monster movies; when I saw this scene, I had no reaction to the monstrosities in the tubes.
However, when I saw the live one lying on the table, my first thought was "Ewww, armpit hair!" :-)

Weyland Yutani is clearly run by idiots; not stupid, just utterly lacking in anything resembling 'sense'.
