ALIEN ISOLATION fan art: "awaiting 2"
i started this piece mid-october back in 2014, but after i was done illustrating the main idea of the piece (alien birth), i wasn't interested in doing another stroke, not to mention finishing it. today i was in the mood to give it another try and finally put an end to it. this one is called "awaiting 2", settled right before getting on the cursed spacestation named Sevastopol. it is still not really finished in my eyes, there are still parts i would like to change especially storytelling-wise, but since it was planed to deliver just one idea on a simple comic-page, it's okay the way it is now i guess. besides, sometimes i need to put older, unfinished stuff out first before i can start with new things. ANYWAY... i really enjoy the main idea/concept of the page and hope you like it too:
-> to be a witness of the birth of an alien (its cell devision/evolution), just by looking at the change of moving bubbles in a cup of black coffee. the cup is beeing put on the Sevastopol-flyer, amanda is looking at - right above the center of the station... the fact that amanda takes a big sip has also meaning to it of course, same goes for the chilly last line from amanda... (i guess you can tell, if you're familiar with the alien-franchise and the game "Alien: Isolation" ofc.).
