Awhile back I was invited to contribute artwork to the Alien3 trading card set from Upper-Deck. As a MASSIVE Aliens fan I was stoked to work on this project!
Previously I had contributed artwork to the Aliens trading card set from Upper Deck and I will have an illustration included in an Aliens artbook, published by Printed in Blood. I can’t share what I did for the artbook yet but once it releases I’ll have prints and the original painting for sale!
I’m a big movie fan and I rewatch a lot of movies, but there’s a particular handful of movies that I’ll rewatch every year. The Aliens movies are some of those that I’ll watch every year. I even have mini statues and toys of the ships and creatures from the Alien movies hanging out in my office!
PACK INSERTED ARTWORK
For the xenomorph drawings I went a pretty colourful patch. I used copics, pencil crayons, and inks on these drawings, with a very bright background. I also tended to up the amount of green that was on the xenomorph heads.
I also depicted a few scenes and background imagery. I used designer gouache for most of these ards and looked for more iconic shots from this film. The illustration on the left is the Sulaco ship as it was approaching the prison colony at the start of the movie. To the right is a silhouette of one of the prison inmates finding a dead xenomorph facehugger.
Lastly, I painted a few portraits of characters in the movie. I used a combination of marker, designer gouache, and pencil crayons for these portraits.
ARTIST PROOF SKETCH CARDS
I don’t have any artist proof sketch cards already drawn for sale and instead I have blank AP cards I can use for commissions! Use the contact form below to request one or more of my APs, or to ask about a larger Aliens illustration!
