Big Damn Heroes
Thursday, January 18, 2007

I suck at titles and text, so the text on my graphics seems to be pretty much the same. Another header, this one a variation on a header I made for an icon challenge community at livejournal. It actually won, which made me very happy. I love this pic of our crew. Very simple, only coloring work and text. Made in PS CS2.

If only I could "suck" at art the way you do. :) LOL.

It's actually a very good work. The way you colorize everything just the right way, is downright brilliant. Look, for instance how well the cargo bay colors match Jayne's shirt, and the silvery metal bars across the ceiling match Book's hair and shirt, likewise, very well.

As always, your use of font is excellent: the font fits the scene just perfectly.

The lighting of the crew members is also superb. Bright light, coming from front, left to the center, hitting River, Mal's face, and Kaylee the most, whereas the others are in more shadow.

Speaking of light, I say you are by far one of the brightest stars in our 'verse; and probably will be for quite a few turns of worlds. :)

There you go, asarian, making me blush like crazy. Thanks for the nudge, by the way. I went in search of something I hadn't yet posted here. Mostly, I've been working with icons, so the larger graphics are far and between, and thus I don't post much around here. I should change that. Anyways, I'm very glad you liked it. :)

BLUEEYEDBRIGADIER this is definitely shiny. T-shirt imagery worthy, in fact;)

Gotta admit though...this shot makes me hanker after a 'Verse take on The Sopranos' iconic black, red and sihouette imagery of the major characters. Not sure if it's been done, but...;)

BEB: Oh, don't give a person ideas! You'll get me searching for a Sopranos font in no time... LOL.

Summer Glau: "Dreamer"
It's been a while since I've done any graphics but today I was inspired by this image, so I made this.

River Tam: Icon Collection
These are some of the River Tam icons I've made in the past months and have been posting in my livejournal. I thought I'd gather a few and show them here.

River Tam: Through My Eyes
Just a simple River Wallpaper. It's been a while since I've done larger Firefly graphics.

I have two other versions of this wall, one textless, one without the smaller image of River on the top left corner.

Firefly: The Complete Series (Crew Cover)
Made for a contest on Livejournal that asked for a cover for a Boxset of a TV show. Obviously I chose Firefly. I made two covers. This is the Crew version.

Firefly: The Complete Series (Mal Cover)
Made for a contest on Livejournal that asked for a cover for a Boxset of a TV show. Obviously I chose Firefly. I made two covers. This is the Mal version.

The Captain and the Companion
Because they have the most interesting UST ever. :)

Browncoats: Mal and Zoe
Made in Photoshop CS2. Our favorite Browncoats, the captain and the second-in-command, who share one of the most interesting friendships in the series.

Simon in Jaynestown
I love this scene. Simon's expression is priceless. So I just had to play with it in Photoshop. I have two other versions of this graphic in the latest post at my livejournal (

River Tam Triumphant
I took one of Serenity's River promo images and created a graphic I submitted for a header contest at LJ. I had fun with this one. Lots of textures went into making this. I was going for a grunge-ish feel. Hope I succeeded.

Can't Take the Sky
I am obsessed with this promo shot so I've made a hundred variations of it. Well, I'm exaggerating but it almost feels like it. Made in Photoshop CS2.
