Firefly ATCs by mleiv Firefly ATCs by mleiv
Did some Firefly drawing this past week. These took far to long to draw and a few of them turned out less awesome than I had been hoping. I think I've been out of practice for too long (my normal sketchbook? untouched in MONTHS). Well, part of what I intend to rectify the next few weeks...

Awesome! They're just the right mix between realism and a small bit of cartoon/sketch style... Love it.

I think you did a remarkable job of capturing a little of each of their personalities in the expressions. Very well done.

Someone hire you to do the next comic book... actually no, the cartoon series!

Thanks for the drawings, linked to it at fansite Summer Glau Wiki [link]

Haha. First hand, I can swear that drawing a comic is a helluva lot harder than doing portrait sketches. I will never pretend I can do what the masters at Dark Horse have done with this series. :)

Aw, thanks! It's not my favorite Mal sketch (there were some nicer ones in my old sketchbook; I think I'm gonna have to try again one of these days).

Meh, I still think I could do a way better Mal and Inara if I had the time. I made little charms of some of the characters this year, and I just couldn't make those two, because they just weren't good enough to be charms. Something to fill 2012. :)

Yeah, just saw it last night again at CSTS and sobbed my way all through that scene again. You'd think after the first five dozen watchings I'd get that out of my system, but no... :P

I like these a lot, but the interesting thing I noticed is, although each one easily captures something essential about the character, all of them except for Book look like younger versions of themselves -- like late teens/early twenties. Maybe it's partly the eyes are a little bigger. It's cool to see what they all used to look like. Thanks for sharing!

mleiv Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2011
That's partly because these are all Firefly-era drawings (mostly from the first episode) rather than Serenity-era, where they were all older and skinnier/more hardened.

Really? Quite the reverse here. But Seattle is a pretty nerdy town. :) As with many wonderful network television shows, it was sabotaged by the network and doomed from the start. Kinda surprised Whedon even bothered with Dollhouse: surely he guessed it would get the same treatment? :/
