Aliens

Ever since it was made official that Sigourney Weaver was coming back for a new Alien movie by Neill Blomkamp, I got really excited and decided to watch Aliens again. That scene at the end where Ripley comes out of the elevator and goes down into the nest to save Newt, it struck me, I forgot how good this movie was. It inspired me to create this, I really wanted to capture the colours and lighting that go on around that scene. The cool blue tones that clash with the warm colours just work so nicely together in that scene, and I've never tried anything like that before so I learnt a lot.

I tried my best to get Ripley's likeness, I hope it worked. I was trying to go for the "scared out of my mind" look, rather than the "macho hardcore saviour" look, I thought it would stay true to the movie. Man I can't wait to see Ripley back in action, apparently they're kicking off from Aliens, as if 3-4 never happened. I love that idea and I think it's a smart bold move. Can't wait!

Enjoy :) I'll post up my line work on this soon, cheers!

It breaks my heart that the Blomkamp project got cancelled by prima donna Senile Scott and the dumbasses in charge of Fox :(

I think that this is a cool drawing of the Alien franchise. I really enjoyed the films with Ripley being a iconic female protagonist.

One of my favorite movies !

Ripley at that time walked on thin ice when dealin' with those sneaky Xenos. But the resurrected Half Human, Half Xeno Ripley walkin' in that Xeno's Hive will feel like walkin' on a park on a Saturday mornin'.

Excellent art! I'm curious if you would do a commission? My best friend loves Aliens to no end, and I cant think of a better gift to get him.

I am a HUGE fan of the entire AVP, Aliens, and Predator franchises and this is by far my favorite fan artwork I've seen. I've seen it floating around from time to time on the internet and I'm so happy I found it's source. :la: Thank you so much!

This is absolutely amazing!
Me. Every day. Ever.

Start the day as though I've got all of the tools prepared to properly deal with life. By sometime around noon some terrible new monster rears its lovely, multi-mouthed head to tear me a new ass.
