In recent months I got into watching an old show called "Firefly". Joss Whedon introduced the world to an idea that Cowboys could exist in Space. There weren't 'aliens' so to speak, but when the Earth had been used up space missions resulted in the discovery of hundreds of new planets that were terraformed into new Earths. These New Earths ranged from barren wastelands to the highest of Technological advances. You follow the crew of a Firefly Class ship as they survive in the unruly galaxy the only way they know how. Wild West gun play meets futuristic sophistication. Its a fun mix of drama and comedy with a rather deep following across the world. One of my favorites and sorry that its no longer on.
Anyway, In celebration of the show I made these badges for myself and my friends of their characters dressed in the style of Firefly.
Image: BLAEZ: BIG DAMN HERO
Notes: It all started here. I drew my friend Greg's character, Blaez dressed as Mal. He looks like he's aiming to misbehave. When I drew this one I tried a new technique in coloring where I colored the outlines. The results were pretty cool.
Image: SID: BIG DAMN HERO
Notes: Here's my guy Sid dressed as the character Jayne. Because of Jayne I named my car Vera and have a strong dislike for guys like Simon. Jayne's a tough guy with a teeny tiny voice of morality way down deep.
Image: COUGARI: BIG DAMN HERO
Notes: Of course I couldn't do these badges without drawing Cougari. So here she is dressed as a version of Kaylee, but more of my own version where the Jayne Hats went mainstream. She's wearing her Jayne hat and has a little cookie print t-shirt under her flight suit.
I've done about 20 of these and have a few more left to finish, but this is a taste of them. Hope you all enjoyed.
They were all sketched in OC1.1, inked in OC 4.5 and colored and arranged in PhotoshopCS2.
