Ref and Process

After an original artwork by Jean Giraud, aka Moebius. He made the drawing during pre-production of Alien as far as I know. It depicts a closeup of his vision of the derelict spaceship. Always loved this drawing. Found it so simple, but dead on and very inspiring. Could not resist making a version with a bit more realism. Also gave me a reason to get out of the complete sucking stage at 3D. There is something intriguing and creative about the 70:s style of scifi that has just gotten lost over the last couple of decades. Time for it to come back. Anyway, hope you enjoy it.
