This was a digital painting challenge I gave myself after I sketched what I thought could be a good idea for an alternative poster. The alternative poster movement seems quite big, so I was inspired to create something myself.
This image was also added to the alternative movie poster archive. To the version below I added an extra bit of text for the film company and the famous tagline for the movie.
This was also the first time I had used a Wacom Cintiq to paint digitally. Everything was done in Adobe Photoshop desktop version. I wanted to keep a painterly feel to the Alien since I felt that it was more dynamic and a little different.
An alternative version to the alternative version is below!
This was a fun project because this is one of my favourite films of all time, so that gave me extra momentum to try and make this look good and true to the mood of the original movie.
