Ripley's in the Hive by inkjava Ripley's in the Hive by inkjava
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:

Not only is the composition of this piece really great, but the simple use of the gradient on Ripley's pants makes me want to smash my Wacom tablet with a hammer...it's that good dammit.

This is great. Looks just like them while maintaining the real stylized BTAS look.
Excellent!
