Sweet Smile
Thursday, July 27, 2006

This is part of a project I'm working on on another site but I really like how it came out and I wanted to share. This is a picture of Mal in tHoG with the sweetest smile ever. I was done with conte pastels. I always welcome input. What do you all think?

Kayna, this is awesome! I love the crinkle at his eye.

I hope this is going into the brag book...

Very, very few people get Mal's facial expression right; you are of them! :) You do your BDH honor!

Wow! The likeness is really good. (Mal's eyes and the smile are spot on. I like the way that his hair has been drawn too.)

Well done Kayna!

Yes, NoSad, this is going in the brag book. The way MALi's going on about it, good luck keeping it out. ;)

Thanks so much everyone. I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes it.

It's not pitch perfect...but that's what makes it grand, Kayna:D

Definitely conveys the spirit of Mal through the expression on his face;)

Very good, Kayna. The eyes and lips really speak to you in this picture. Almost looks as if our Captain is looking at his own newborn child. You got the smile dead on; the lips are great. I also like how you used the blue tints in the shading to show a sort of 'looming shadow' in the picture. The different strokes of color in the hair along with the lowlights in the back are well done. The whispy red background also looks as if it sugguests a flashback or a frozen moment in time. Picturesque and shiny, as all should be.

This is one of the best pieces of fan art I've ever seen. Are you an artist? This is gorgeous and it really shows talent. You really captured him -- his look, his personality, his way.

I love his eys. (Especially that crinkle! I agree with nosadseven on that detail. Awesome!)

You know what? Perhaps not the original, I know that'd be hard to part with, but you ought to send him (Nathan Fillion) a scan or a photo of this or something. I bet he'd be really flattered.

Very shiny!

Lana Whyn
Another caracter for my Serenity game. Lana's parents were a most unusual pairing. Her dad was a rim world law man and rancher who died in the war, fighting for the Inependants. Her mother was a highly respected Companion who stunned everyone when she left the guild to marry him. Now she's a brilliant young doctor who (despite her core world degree) operates exclusively on the rim. She's idealistic but not stupid. *not* I love comments and constructive criticisms so post away.

Kat Kallsan
This is a chracter for a Serenity RPG that I plan on running. A friend came up with her and I drew her. I kind of like how she came out.
Kat is a rich runnaway from a powerful core family. She picked up a lot of rough habits mostly to aggrivater her parents and she's an ace pilot. She's also a cockey little wench who is blackmailing her parents so as to not become poor. *note* I love comments and advice. Post away please.

CONvergence 4
And to go with my previous post, Wash's dinos and Kaylee's room sign.

CONvergence 3
Here we have a few shiny folk that I met at CON. They might look familiar.

Convergence part 2
Okay, so I went to a con in Minneapolis a month ago and only just got pics of the trip from my friend (I really need my own camera). While there were no BDHs there, there was some fun browncoatyness to be found.

And here we have the banner outside hte Firefly room party we found.

Next post will include pics of the shiny people to be found inside!

Convergence Pics (way late)
Okay, so I went to a con in Minneapolis a month ago and only just got pics of the trip from my friend (I really need my own camera). While there were no BDHs there, there was some fun browncoatyness to be found.
First up is a pair of pics of me in browncoat gear. No character, just me in the verse.

I Can See You
Slight repost. The original was only up for a few hours so most of you won't have seen it but I had to fix it. ANyway...
Lookit that! I drew something! It's been a while. I've been really into the Tam Sessions lately and I thought they might provide good images for charcoal drawings. Here's the result. I hope you like it. Comments and critiques are always welcome.

The Dancer
Ok. First one of these in about a year. I got stuck on that line of River's in the Tam Sessions. "Would I still be allowed to dance?" And the piece came from that.

Lost Toys
I haven't done one of these in a while. I still only have Picture It but I like how it came out anyway.

Serenity logo: hand drawn
I'm so proud of this thing. I just spent about 3 hrs making a godaweful mess with my soft pastels to make it. If you're wondering why I went to all that trouble when I could have just printed it out, I'm planing on using it for a background fo a project in my drawing class.
