Ripley's Farewell by ivewhiz Ripley's Farewell 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:

Alien 3 is massively underrated. For me, it's the last great film in the franchise. Depressingly dark, yet retains a special place in my heart. Imagine what would of happened if we had William Gibson's Cold War/Xeno contagion script, Vincent Ward's weird but enticing wooden planet concept, or worse, Eric Red's crap script that felt like the writing of a gore happy teenager.

I loved Alien 3. Sure, it was a bit sad at parts, but it's good. It's very underrated and deserves more love.

The director's cut of Alien 3 is not a bad film at all, I like it a lot.

It's a damn shame we'll never find out how great it could've been if they let Fincher do what he wanted instead of the production hell he was put through.
I'm sure it would've been great given what a fantastic director he later turned out to be.

Yeah, there were so many ideas for this movie. This planet-made-of-wood concept would have been something to see! I loved this movie as well. I'm glad you agree!
I wonder if David Fincher likes talking about it with the fans though. I'd hope so...

I think the most interesting thing about Fincher's script is that Ripley was going to be impregnated the "old fashioned way." Meaning that she would be pregnant with a human-alien hybrid that would be in her womb.
I'm planning on writing a similar story to that.

Well, there are two different versions of it, and I can't decide which one to write.
