Alien Illustration - Circa 1987


I found this during a clear out of junk recently, I've had to give it a bit of a clean up in Photoshop as the original picture was a bit yellowed and had spray paint spatters on it. This Giger-esque Alien was drawn by me around 22 years ago, and looking back I've realised was a bland pose it is in, hardly the most dynamic drawing I've seen, also not quite sure about my thinking of the fact the Alien appears to have two penis like appendages ?! Still I thought I'd post this old picture as I still quite like it !!

Interesting. 22 years ago, which would make you...how old? Wish I still had my drawings from that long ago.

The hands look a bit err non threatning but over all i like it a lot.

This is indeed a great sketch and considering it is 22 years old it looks in a good condition. Agree it is a bland pose even so the details are wonderful.

Doesn't matter about the dynamism, it's really nicely drawn! It also reminds of the Kenner line of Aliens toys that were around in the mid 1990s.
