River in Bushwacked
Wednesday, February 15, 2006

River is one of my favorites. She has some great moments in this episode and these are just a few. The words are lyrics from a Loreena Mckennitt song called "Cé hé mise le unlaight? / The two trees"

By the way, I put this song in because River sees what is inside others. In this cvase, it's what the Reavers left so the lyrics seemed appropriate.

I find it very classy the way you put that tiny picture in of River from Bushwhacked (bottom-right) looking up. And the way the "big" River looks back. Personally, I would not even have put in the top-left picture; I dunno, the big River and the little one staring at each other, that is a very powerful poetic image. The top-left image seems to disturb that a bit. But the poetic notion of those two Rivers staring at each other, very artsy. :)

Hey kayna,

Like to comment on your "trapped" picture, but the comment box seems gone somehow.

Anyway, I think "trapped" is a very beautiful piece of work, is all. Very nice and smooth blending of all those images. :)

my i ask what program u used?

This piece was done entirely in Picture It! 2.0
I would love a new program but I am poor (weep) and this one works all right.

I adore River. And I like this pic. Very classy. The lyrics work well with her. Great job.

I adore River too! :) Just came here again to admire the view again, is all.

As for Picture It!, it just goes to show that the talent is in the artist, and not in the program, kayna. :) You really did great work! And remember, there's no such thing as too much River! :)

Very nice, I would also like to point out that the lyrics originally came from a poem by W.B. Yeats, also called "The Two Trees"

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.
