Not sure what made me do this but I'm glad I did. Great fun keeping it simple and just trying to capture the feel of Alien (especially a certain scene in Aliens with Newt).

I've been asked a few times now where Newt is but I wanted to just focus on the Xenomorph itself because it's just such an amazing design and iconic.

The painting isn't the most technical I'll admit and it really relies on the gloss varnish and water effect. But I'm really pleased with it.

Have to thank Richard Sharp twice on this one. Firstly for the way to create water strings and then some photography tips.
