For this Friday's classic concept\storyboard art, I chose these storyboards from the James Cameron epic Aliens (1986).
You'll see storyboards of Ripley, the Narcissus Salvage Ship, Alien Queen and more after the jump and click to enlarge.
The description comes from Sci-Fi-O-Rama: "Theses samples are taken from across several drafts I believe and were illustrated by artists Roger Dear, Maciek Piotrowski and Denis Rich, apparently these scan’s are taken from the films Laser Disc Release, although full versions (copies?) of the storyboard do crop
occasionally on eBay."
