Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 395

ALIEN 3 Cover. 2018.
Gouache (by Joe Rivera) on bristol board with digital color, 11 × 17″.

The first issue of Alien 3 is out! Full details here. My dad, Joe Rivera, painted over my digital pencils for this variant cover, and I colored it in Photoshop. This was a brand new way of working for us, but I was quite happy with the results. He first tested the technique over a Diego Rivera panel, whose style I was trying to reference.
