Alien by Paul-Shanghai Alien by Paul-Shanghai
This is the third drawing I have done from the Alien/Predator series of movies and games, and one I am probably happiest with :)


Normally it is very difficult to establish how long a drawing has taken, but for this one I took a photograph every (almost) hour - I now have 20 photographs each showing a stage of the process to create an animation which I will post shortly along with a link here.

If you like this one, why not take a look at the other two drawings in this series


Drawn almost entirely with a 0.5mm mechanical pencil with 4B leads, on Bristol Board Smooth A3 Paper some tissues, blending sticks and erasers - bit of 8B Graphite Pencil for the larger dark areas and that's it.

Hope you like it :)

******UPDATE*****UPDATE*****

As promised you can find a short animation of how I drew 'Alien' just by clicking the thumbnail below :)

I cannot believe that the original artist of this incredible piece of work actually has a DA account, you can see his profile here [link] and you can see the brilliant painting I used as a reference here

Oh boy, my room mate certainly would go down onto his knees for this piece. He absolutedly loves HR Giger's Alien. I think it's more creepy and scary but fascinating though. Anyway. Excellent job!
