This is an illustration I will update from time to time until I get to the final version. This is at Step 3, light and shadow testing.

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 added some gooey stuff on the walls, extended the scenery in the background... and set fire to the eggs! I decided not to make them half opened with Face Huggers peeking out since there is already enough things going on. This is still the rough line art but this time with some light and shadow layers. I also did this version with a lighter background, [link] ... Not sure yet which one I'll go for.

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