..well kinda. Been doing the odd Astrofunk scribble here and there, playing with re-working a few elements - tweaking character designs, maybe do a new logo, and definitely push the style into a diferent direction. So this is just a first attempt, in no way final, but might be close to where I end up. Anyways, having fun drawing some of the characters again, hopefully get some new pages done soon.

UPDATE! - 23/05 - I realised when looking through my files that somehow I'd lost some of the colour in the poster when making final tweaks, specifically the Blues, so I've updated the main image below
This started out as a doodle whilst on holiday....as u may have noticed I do enjoy scribbling the odd movie pinup here or there, I love figuring out the composition and sketching the actors....this started as just an attempt at a landscape style pinup...and I think since I'd been reading Empires prometheus articles that week, the first thing that came out was the space jockey - and suddenly I was like 'oh that could work really well as the main shape in the background. The rest was basically poses from within the magazine, but trying to go for the feeling of exploring, discovering, using the starmap dude from the trailer. I think the most exciting thing about this film is the unknown - will it be as awesome as we all hope? What will they find out there? How does it actually connect to Alien. It's only a few weeks away now, and I cannot wait.
Anyways, hope u like this one. Not sure what's up next, probably some sketch book scribbles I've been scanning in, rough stuff. Back soon with that!

Howdy folks! Finally fnished my Ripley Trilogy. After finishing ALIENS I decided to go back and slightly tweak the first two, hence the posting of the new versions here. Mainly Alien 3, tweaked her face and hair a little, and alligned text and boring stuff like that! Decided to drop Newt out of this new one, keep the focus on Sigourney, plus it meant I could make use of the tracking device. Pleased with how this one turned out, maybe the best of the likenesses. Now I'm working on a Prometheus pinup...should be done in a couple of days, so back in a week or so with that!
