Ellen Ripley by ElenaTria Ellen Ripley by ElenaTria
Sigourney Weaver rocks.
Her roles in the Alien movies, "Gorillas in the mist" and "Copycat" are the definition of female power.
I hope there's going to be yet another Alien sequel.

Truly amazing.
And a very becoming choice of a film based on the art of Giger:)

Weaver as Ripley was always my childhood icon because of that female power. :3 I love the colors in this, it really makes me think of how powerful that role of hers was to me; really shows her intensity as Ellen Ripley. <3

The ref pic I used for this deviation is one of Ripley's bestest... :heart: [link]
I don't think I've EVER seen a female character as powerful as hers. EVER.
She's my total role model.
Thanks for liking the colours! :aww:

I always have her in my heart.

Just recently? Really??
I'm really sorry that this deviation doesn't get much appreciation, dunno, perhaps because it's a woman, perhaps because Alien films are not very "trendy" these days.
Myself I loooooooooove Ripley, always have, always will, she's totally my role model and I love Sigourney Weaver for playing such a strong character. The Alien films wouldn't be the same without her.
Glad you're into the saga, my friend! :handshake: :D I love all four films but I'm partial to the fourth one I admit.

(and thaaaanks for the fave btw!! :aww: )

I was introduced to Alien because we had to watch it in my Media Studies class. I was never really a big fan of science fiction and I was really surprised that I liked the film. The other week I went out and bought three of the films - I'm just missing Alien 3 now :D

Media Studies class, WOW! What are you studying exactly?
Not *every* sci fi film is interesting but the Alien saga is just classic. Alien 3 is COOL although not many people like it.. I guess you know the plot by now but.. hey, no spoilers! =P

In Media Studies we have to analyze things like films and tv shows and Aliens was one of the films we had to study. It really is an interesting class :D

I haven't watched Alien 3 yet :( The only ones I could find in the store was Alien, Aliens and Alien Ressurection. I still need to buy that one on DVD.

Gee, what an interesting class.. In art school we only studied...yeah, art. ;P History of art basically, architecture etc etc.
Say, you don't download films from torrent sites?
(when you do watch it tell me so we can geek out together :D :D )

I'm sure it will be in the shops somewhere for the price I got the other three, I just need to look out for it. I hated the fact it wasn't available in the shop when I bought the other three because they were so cheap to buy at the second-hand shop. I hope I can get to see it soon lol

Thanks! :D

Yeah, I mean every other heroine always seems like a side character, or she gets her power from her sexuality. But while Ripley is undeniably sexy, she totally transcends any category in her utter awesomeness.

:+favlove: This is crazy-cool. Ripley is probably the greatest action heroine ever, you've really captured her intensity. Even her hair looks kind of sinster and medusa-like.

She is THE best, nobody will surpass her, *ever*.
I did have a lovely and intense reference picture of her indeed... :thumbsup:
Medusa-like, haaha, I like that! That's because I looooove drawing curls, so art-nouveau of me. ;P

Gosh, I love your style! It's so expressive and full of emotion! I seriously don't know how you can acheive this with watercolour (because it's my worst enemy ...) but I respect you greatly for it

very well executed~

You know what watercolour is? Practice-practice-practice, nothing more. The funny thing is that I didn't even do a pencil sketch for it, I right away used a pen (never did it before, never will do it again, it's unique).
