I really like the one on the bottom left with the name and Serenity burnin' at the engines. :)

Hard to say which one leaves the name most legible. But do you plan on selling memberships @the con? If so, you may want to design a badge with a rectangular white space, either @top or bottom, for a stick on name label. Then you can have your blank badges pre-printed, sealed in plastic, & punched for clips or however they are to be worn. Having to print names in colour, on badge stock, which then has to be sealed & punched, is a very slow process that you don't need @the registration area.

Mighty nice, Zol. I especially like the first one in row 2. If you want to use the official movie-logo characters, here they are (second character's the same as the series):

Serenity (movie): ning2jing4

And for those who want them:

Serenity (TV series): ping2jing4

Firefly: ying2huo3chong2

Thanks for the heads up on the characters - I seam to be overlooking how to add the charcetrs within photoshop, it eludes me at present but the other charcaters should be okay unless someone looks closely at the badges.

Got VERA? (This is the really thing)
On display at a recent Starwars convention, there was a section set aside for Firefly props (& some form Serenity too) - I have more photos, but the Gorramn Alliance has shut it down due to excessive Browncoat action - but here`s Zol holding Vera, and I know it`s gonna make people very jealous, but you should have been there, maybe if we all email Starfury they will get the props displayed at Serenity3! Darin (Zol.) p.s. please don`t re-use the image without 1st asking, thanks!

Chrstine, Zol & Nathan
Newver get between Nathan & any hot(!) women, take a look at where he`s pointing his gun(!) this photo was altererd form 2 photos, I just wasn`t smiling or looking at the camera in the 1st photo but Christine was in such a hot pose! Darin (Zol.) p.s. taken at Starfury Serenity2 Con.

Serenity Production Art Wallpaper (1024x768)
Ok, so I added flare, chopped it in half, moved the artist info (to keep it on there)& otherwise darkened and sharpened the original image - so enjoy this as your desktop wallpaper. Darin (Zol.)

Fruity Oaty Bar - Wallpaper center image
Here`s just the center image of the wallpaper I posted earlier, just need to use this one as a `centered image` and not stretched or tiled - should work just fine. Darin (Zol.)

Alternative to Fruity Oaty Bar Advert?
A wallpaper (1024x768) that I created from the Serenity DVD, an old Postcard Scan of some cute aliens & some font choices too :) Darin (Zol.)
