"R.I.P.LEY"

Procreate 2.1 is finally here and I can post what I worked on during the beta stage of "fire"! I always wanted to do a portrait of Sigourney Weaver, especially after the one I did of John Hurt last year in what will hopefully become a series of portraits of my favorite actors. I am also super psyched about the new "Alien Isolation" game coming out this october where Sigourney actually reprises her role as Ripley, 35 years later!!!

 

I used a photo ref of Sigourney of course, but I improvised the environment as a kind of love letter to the Nostromo spaceship set design, which is in my opinion still one of the most realistic sci-fi environments ever created on film. For a laugh, read the small post-it note on the left monitor. :)

 

Here's a timelapse for those interested:
