In between the full coloured paintings I have been producing over the last few weeks to update my portfolio I've also been dedicating some time to completing some black and white comic page art. To save a little time I figured I would use an already existing script with a story that would lend to my style. The one I decided to go for was Alien Hive, which is based on the Aliens universe, written by Jerry Prosser and originally illustrated by Kelley Jones.
I love Kelley Jones's artwork for this story, really love it, and so I very much enjoyed the challenge of applying my own art style to the story. Here it is, the first six pages (the story is a long one that fills a graphic novel sized publication. So, I figured I'd stop at six pages as it felt like a nice stopping point before I got carried away).
All-in-all, a lot of hard work, yet a very enjoyable experience!
