This is scary....I like it. It's very artful, if that's a word. I especially like the touch of having River's drawign in the corner.

This gives me an uncomfortableness.

Which means it is DAMN shiny!

Excellent as always, 11th!

Hmm, my last post didn't go through.

Anyway, just sayin' shiny like all your pix are.

Is this the final image, or another installment?

Thank you all for your thoughtful comments.

If River's portrait has disturbed anyone... well, I've done my job. :-)

The art above represents a little less than half of the portrait. Each section that has been shown over the past 3 days (on my website) tells its own story. There will be at least 2 more progressive reveals of the full artwork.

Each time the view pulls back, a bit more of River's world is seen...

Very shiny. This is a wonderfully complex image for a wonderfully complex character. Nice job.

Thanks everyone for such positive responses. River's portrait was a tricky one to tackle... there is so much to her. So many levels to touch upon, evoke her confusion... yet retain clarity in the image.

To answer some of the questions ~

I referenced several images of River to get the feeling I was after. In the area of the art shown above, there are around 5 source images, that all had to be brought together to create one image. There's also a fair bit of digital painting in there too.

The Chinese characters in this section are:

"mei mei" ~ Next to Simon meaning "little sister".

"Goddamn monsters" ~ right edge under medical probes. This is said by Simon when referring to those who performed the experiments on River.

Thanks again everyone, appreciate the shiny responses.

P.S.
Things move fast in the Blue Sun Room, so I'm not sure if anyone will see this message or not... well, maybe...

Ya know...this postcard reminds me of a cover for a play I have lying around: Anne Marie Macdonald's "Goodnight, Desdemona; Good Morning, Juliet"...though your work is still quite amazing, 11thHour:D

11th's Hi-Res Alt DVD Cover Now Available
Okay just so's I won't be tweakin' into the next year on this thing, finally got to a point with my alt Serenity DVD cover where I can say it's fit fer downloadin'. There's a new Serenity ship (bigger, brighter, bolder, but still upside down), River's seen a lot of revising, and there's been some general cleaning and brightening of the background to avoid the "muddies" when it prints. (Dark, complex areas look cool onscreen, but can print like yuck on a lot of printers... hence the clean-up.) A link to the hi-res image file can be found on my Firefly/Serenity alt cover web page: http://srt.art.home.att.net Have fun! Yer Art Companion, 11th Hour

Serenity DVD Cover - Tweaked Again...
Was finally able to get back and put some more time into my alt Serenity DVD cover design. Thanks to everyone who posted so enthusiastically before on the previous versions... the whole point was to make a DVD cover we fans would really dig, and one that stood a good chance of attracting the potential new Serenity/Firefly fans... and all your great feedback was a good indication that the sought after effect was achieved. Took some comments into account, also researched what a genuine Universal DVD back looks like, so's I could make mine look all real and stuff. Well here she be... fresh, homemade Serenity DVD cover, hot off the hard drive... mmmmmm... Yer Art Companion, 11th Hour
