John R. Mullaney is one of the amazingly talented artists involved in the recently published Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report. He is responsible for the gorgeous artwork of the weaponry and vehicles inside the book and publisher Insight Editions has just released a time lapse video of how he created the cutaway for the APC on their YouTube:
“How *did* you do that?” is a question people often ask me about my cutaway art. Now I can point them towards this…
I’m very proud to unveil the 4 minute edit of APC Cutaway. Creating the artwork, the film and its music were labours of love so it’s very exciting to finally be able to share it with you. I hope you enjoy the film.”
It’s really fascinating to see 120 hours of work reduced to a 4 minute time lapse. The time and effort involved in producing something like this is astonishing. You can head over to John’s Facebook page to check out more of his work and if you’re interested in purchasing the Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report you can purchase it over on the Sideshow website.
We will have our own preview of the book and an interview with the Alien artist, fan favourite Locusta/Markus Pansegrau over the coming weeks.
