Space Jockey by shadothezombie Space Jockey by shadothezombie
Started this almost right after I saw "Prometheus", which was around 2 months ago. Then I moved in a new apartment and I had my summer vacation so this project had to wait a little.

I really liked the movie, may be the best sci-fi movie for 2012. The visuals were amazing and I can't wait to get the Bluray for some behind-the-scenes footage.

Total painting time is around 25 hours in PS CS6. I used some screenshots from the trailer to reference the space jockey. I used the regular brushes + a custom made brush to repeat the curves in the background better. I had lots of issues in the process, but mostly I'm happy with the result. I have some process shots and will upload them later.

Hope you'll like it! :)

Excellent piece of artwork for the film. It's personally my favorite film of the year so far and I can't wait for not only the Blu Ray release but also the sequel (Shaw and David are coming back!).

Also, we need the appropriate music for this: [link]

Yep. Scott is "eager" to return and it may come out in either 2014 or 15. Screenwriter Lindleof might not return for the affair, however.

In the meantime, check out this neat Blu-Ray cover. I'm practically drooling over seeing this: [link]

Sweet. Release date for the Blu-Ray is 9th of October so it's not so far ahead ;)
