This is an illustration I will update from time to time until I get to the final version. This is at Step 4: clean line art (digital inking).

Put simply, I wanted to do an artwork with Ripley from each Alien movie using the model sheet I did of her [link]. So this is the first one I'm doing. I based myself on the Reebok photoshoot [link] for the pose, and I'm improvising the scenery.

Since the last version, I simply made a clean version of the rough line art of the original drawing. The rough line art is the blue artwork visible underneath. I made a last minute change to the Alien design and went with a look more similar to the second movie (instead of the generic look I like to do which bears more resemblance to the "Alien Resurrection" version, [link]). I can't wait to jump to the next step!! Colours!!!

Starting from a rough sketch in my drawing pad, I'm using a Cintiq to do the rest.
