Alvin, who died in 2008 after a career spanning four decades, hand-painted all his work.

However, when Ridley Scott released his director's cut in 1991, it won the film critical and cult acclaim.
A new book, The Art of John Alvin, collects Alvin's best work, along with a wealth of unseen sketches.
Here is an initial sketch of the final poster.
And how the sketch compared with the finished poster.
