I was messing around with my pastels and came up with this. You would not believe how hard it is to do empty spaces that don't look out of place. By the way, if you look through the BDM you wont find this exact image. I kinda composited to get more of the face in at once.

I shrank this one a lot and it's still huge but the thumbnail looks awesome so I guess I'm satisfied

Very cool. My only critic would be to puff up her left (our right) cheek more, it seems a bit too thin. Other than that very cool...I havent been brave enough yet to try this one.

It's images like these from you and mphillips that make me really wish there was an "Art of Firefly" coffee table book with your stuff in it.

OHHHHH Moonlight that's a really good idea...we should totally look into it.

wow when I saw the thumb I thought it was a new kind of mphillips drawing, which is the highest level of commendation. Well done!

Happens to be one of my favorite scenes. :) You captured her expression so well! Very impressive! :) Her whole face is so realistic; her mouth, but especially her eyes. Wish I could draw like that. :) Shiny work!

Well, I'm just gonna comment on it a second time to crank up the score. :) You dun good!

whoa, when I glanced and clicked on the thumb nail I honestly thought it was a screencap... but this is so much better! Wonderful, just wonderful.

gypsylife, I noticed the cheek but when I tried to puff it up while drawing it just didn't look right so I left it how you see it.
Moonlight, I agree, that DOES sound like a good idea.
And the rest of you, what comparisons. Screencaps, mphillips, wow. You make me feel so good about myself. Thanks

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.
