I loved the series of Firefly, and I loved the movie Serenity.

How long did it take you to do this piece?

I'm also curious why there's an emphasis on Firefly now?  What's the big deal recently?

It took me about a week to do this piece.

I'm not sure if there's more emphasis on Firefly now? I did this piece over 4 years ago.

Well there's a big thing about Firefly fanart on the splash page.  I thought maybe you did this recently or something.

It's always been a huge fandom, dA has just chosen to feature a collection of fan art because most people will be interested. They rotate monthly I think.

Love it! This made me smile so big.

I love all the little touches, the way River is looking up at Mal, Jayne's hat, Book's book, and the expressions are awesome, you really got Mal's and Wash's expressions, especially their mouth's, right.

I love this, I love the animation style of drawing, and how perfectly in character they all are.

I really like your art.  Would you be willing to give me permission to use some of these in an animation I'm working on?

Since I own the copyright on the drawings, it won't be possible for you to use them in an animation, sorry.

I would give you the credit for the characters, but that's fine.  I'll stick with designing my own.  Really good work!  :)

SHINY!

When the animated Firefly series comes into being, I vote for you to do the artwork. You have captured each and every one of them. It's all about proper face shape and those eyes! If they were any more lifelike, they'd be be telling us that they aim to misbehave. Thanks for sharing this wonderful piece.

Mal looks...so Mal! Oh my dear Wash! Curse your sudden but inevitable Death!

But this piece is brilliant, I do like Mal's nose in this ccartoon..and in life.

"We're Gonna Explode? I don't wanna explode!"

"Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!"

"Also; I can kill you with my brain"

Nice drawing! You captured the essense of (almost) each one of the other Firefly cast.

Love the way River Tam is depicted as an 'outsider' within the crew, which is true after all.
