Ripley trilogy by ArkadeBurt Ripley trilogy by ArkadeBurt
U know what - to make it easy for u, here's all 3 together as I intended!

will I do a Resurrection pinup? I have some scribbles, I might...I certainly don't hate the movie like some friends , but it is the weakest easily. I'm a big fan of Alien 3, but 4 does some interesting ...maybe.

While your take on the trilogy is phenomenal, I wish they had stopped at Aliens instead of cheating the mythology like with the Terminator films.

Great :D The shadow on her chest in the third panel is a nice idea

AAAAAA FINALLY. I saw this on tumblr and I've been looking for it here to fav. Holy shit what a quest. This is one of THE BEST Alien series fanarts I've ever seen. I don't track down things, ever, but goddamn I had to track down this. Epic work man, your style is great and I'm such a huge Alien fan, and a Sigourney fan too. The way you've drawn her is excellent, you nailed her character.

All the favs to you. :3

ALIEN ***** Fucking awesome
ALIENS 3** meh
StuR71 Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2013
Stunningly good! The likeness of Sigourney is great and the composition is brilliant for each piece. I love 3 too, but could take or leave 4. However I'd love to see your take on it anyway...

This is awesome! This shows pretty well how badass Ripley is and how she looks like in those three Alien movies. Good job :)

As a big Alien franchise fan I really like this. It is striking with your use of color and layers.

Great work! Can't enjoy the third movie though. Cracked even had two articles explaining the movie's faults.

Hi Dude, saw these on another website (howtocarvearoastunicorn) and had to stop and let you know how great these illustrations are. Well done.
kilar277 Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012
See, I disagree. I saw Resurrection for the first time last night, and I thought it was great, probably my favorite save the first one.
Personally, I think 3 was the weakest, doing a lot of unnecessary things, such as what they did with Newt and Hicks. I thought it would have been stronger with them in it.
But to each his own, I guess.
But as for the art, It's great.
Like seriously.
randybob275 Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012
That would be so great if you made one including Alien Resurrection.
angieness Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
These are amazing! Good timing as I've been making my way through all the movies the past week.

"trilogy", because there was never a 4th movie

well done there.
AkatsukiChild Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2012
This is so cool! :wow: I loved when Ripley/Sigourney got her head shaved, I actually found her really pretty without hair :)

They look great!
The only thing I don't know is, why you didn't use the girl for 'Aliens'. Just like the poster...
But I guess you wanted to not copy the posters?

I think I do recognize that shot, cause I do see that wristband-thing, and it's the moment where she finds it and discovers the Queen right? ;)

I'm glad you don't hate the 3rd and 4th movies as most other do.
Cause I'm also not an exclusive fan of the first two or even just the first as some are. I really like the 3rd and 4th ones.
And the end of the 4th made me wish there were two more to form a second trilogy.
But nooo, they had to go make that "versus"-stuff... :P

Anyway, cool artwork. I wouldn't mind having these on my wall.
ArkadeBurt Featured By Owner May 29, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
hey man, thanks for the kind words. yeah I toyed with putting Newt into the poster, she was in my original sketches ( go check out my tumblr for a peek [link] ) but in the end she wasn't working, and i wanted to focus on Ripley - for me that's the focus of these movies, it's about the character of Ripley, her journey, and everything else is secondary. Plus I probably have a crush on Sigourney Weaver :)

Might do a Ressurection one yeah, probably...once i get time, I've made a couple of doodles. ALthough if Prometheus is amaaazing then I'll probably draw that instead!
DamageIncM Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Haha, yes I quite agree it's mostly about Ripley.
And to be honest, I found the girl's high-pitched screaming quite cheesy and annoying.
Although she is in one of my favorite scenes/shots of all of these movies.
Which would be where she's in the water and then behind her the tail comes up...
I wish I had a BD-drive and could make a screenshot of that to print and frame that.

But, although I haven't seen 'Prometheus' yet, you should definitely do something of that if it's good.
"Resurrection" as well though. Maybe of Ripley in the sort of Alien-nest or something like that.
Or maybe when she comes out of her "cocoon" in her cell.
Of course something minimalistic again and with some recognizable key elements.
In any way, good luck with those. ;)

This is way to epic
RoseMcClain Featured By Owner May 22, 2012  Professional General Artist
Oh man, this is awesome. Love how close you came to Weaver's likeness, but she still looks different in each one, like she's properly gone through hell.

And the subtle nest background in the Aliens poster is like whoa.

Fantastic art to a fantastic series, my favorite in fact. Brilliant work.
