Dang nabbit! Now I'm getting all teary-eyed again. :(

Seriously, you would not have wanted to be in the theater with me when, well, you know. I think I left inch deep grip marks in the armrest, and I'm pretty sure that I let out a fairly considerable wail.

Okay, enough. This was a lovely passage, and the pictures you chose are a perfect counterpoint.

Be at peace, Wash. You were a good man, one of the best. *sniffle*

Not to worry Ana there were a few others in the theater and I yelped very very loudly at the-part-we-shall-not-mention.
And that picture is just perfect for Wash.
:sniffles: me want Wash back

I think you did a wonderful job with this work of art. Everything fits together like pieces to a puzzle.

The emotion rings so true. Also, shiny job with the symbolism. (The larger picture of Wash)

Very nice, but there's one little thing: the word "clothes" is misspelled.

I could quibble a bit about the capitalization, too, but I understand you wanted a certain effect so I'll let it slide... :)

Craptastic! thanks for pointing out that misspelling Doncoat... I'll be fixing that!

Just the smile on Wash's face on the right of the picture got me all teared up.

Gorram it.

Very nice! I love the quote on the left, too bad Joss wanted it out of the movie.
But anyway, very nice image. Especially the Wash on the right side of the image is very well-done! :-)

Serenity - Scavenge
"

; --- (copy and paste the link into your browser to see the video) Here's a little video I did a long time ago that I had misplaced until now. The music is from the "Buffy - The Vampire Slayer" Soundtrack. I did this back before I knew how to build good models so the Serenity model is by Sean Kennedy and the Peacekeeper Vigilante (stand-in Reaver ship) is by Rhys Salcombe. All of this was rendered in Lightwave. Yes... the video may seem to end with a bit of a "cliff-hanger"... I never did get around to piecing together the bits of the chase scene that I had... :-) --- "





Serenity - Just Married
This is a little piece I created for my older brother and new sister-in-law who were married several months ago. They honeymooned in Hawaii, hence the beach. They are both Firefly/Serenity fans. I rendered the objects in Lightwave I and used Photoshop for compositing on the photo. Serenity model was built by Sean Kennedy.


Through the Storm - Wallpaper
Here's an alternate, wallpaper friendly version of my latest piece. Hope you enjoy it. I might even make an animation of this at some point... hmm.... :)


Through the Storm
Horray for my new computer! I just got done rebuilding it; duel core, new video card, new RAM. Lightwave is a lot faster now! Hopefully, I can crank out my fanfic sooner, but in the meantime, here's a picture I had to get out of my head. As always, the model is by Sean Kennedy. I used Lightwave and a little Photoshop action in this one.


Ocean Class Carrier - 3D lightwave model
It's been a while since I posted a piece of art here, so I thought I'd let you all see what I've been up to (though it's not really art). **It's still a work-in-progress!** This is the Ocean Class Carrier from the movie... you see these guys in big space battle near the end. I've been working off still pictures I've captured from the movie, so I'm not sure how accurate it'll be. Hopefully, I'll have the engine and gunturret complete by next week; Maybe textured the week after. This is one of the models I'll be using in an upcoming fanfic featuring a brand new crew and ship. The series will be called "Badlands" (takes place during the war) and should be out by at least beginning 2007. It's a combo "e-comicbook"/"CG movie"... an interesting blend. Stay tuned at http://www.bluegrassbrowncoats.net!

The FINAL EFFECT - Animation
http://www.bluegrassbrowncoats.net/Serenity_fireflyeffect.avi

Well, it's pretty much final. I still need to fine tune the wave effect, but I think I've got theory down. Overall, I'm fairly satisfied with how the effect turned out. I have a new respect CG artist and the uncertainty that goes with special effects, I had very little idea how the final effect would turn out until after many hours of rendering. Well... anyway, enjoy! Follow the URLs to see the video (video requires the DIVX codec)

New Serenity Animation v2
http://bluegrassbrowncoats.net/Serenity_loop_thrust.avi

Not much different than the last animation. I did add an engine burn/exhaust effect that looks pretty damn cool I must say, but not perfect. Anyway, I figured since my computer spent all last night and most of the today rendering, I might as well post it. Enjoy! (requires a DIVX codec to play)

New Serenity Animation
http://bluegrassbrowncoats.net/Serenity_loop.avi
Though I haven't mastered the engine effect quite yet, I think I'm doing pretty good with camera shakes and zooms. Here's an animation of something the Serenity probably wouldn't do to turn around in space, but hey, it looked cool. Anyway, let me know what you think. I'm hoping to get to the point where I can add the engine effect into this animation.

The Firefly Effect
It's my first attempt at something like this so it's by no means perfect, but I think I'm on the right track. I rendered this completely in Lightwave ... no Photoshop retouches. I've finally figured out how to emulate the Firefly effect using volumetric lights and fractal textures. Once I get the waves moving right I'll post an animation. It's gonna take some serious fine tuning though.
