Hey there fellow Browncoats!

Here is a deviation that took me a full month of lunch breaks at the office to complete......... @_@

And completed almost for the 2000th fav on my most populart Deviation, Crew of Serenity [link] I just realised that today and I almost fell of my chair! Thanks everybody! And dont forget: CAN'T STOP THE SIGNAL!!!!!! :D

So here are the main characters of Joss Whedon's cult Sci Fi show Firefly and movie Serenity:
Captain tight pants Mal, deluxe companion Inara, loyal first mate Zoe, dino fan pilot Wash, mecanical genius Kaylee, cutie doc Simon, psychic freak River, too much hair shepherd Book, and the hero of Canton, the man called Jayne!

I am absolutely in love with your style of art - and your tv/movie/comic taste! Firefly is my favourite show ever, and it's always nice to find art that justifies the characters :) this is fantastic!

Absolutely wonderful! You captured them in a distinctive, attractive style, yet I'd still know who they were if the logo were taken out of the corner. That's the mark of a truly talented artist there.

Were I unwed, I would take you in a manly fashion. Because this is pretty. :D

On a more serious note, I love how you've captured their individual personalities so well while only using expression, pose, and whatever items they may be holding. It gives a great overview of what the crew of Serenity is all about in a single frame. It goes in the favorites.

Those would make awesome dock icons, if they were on transparency. It might be difficult to remember which character represents which program, but Kaylee would have to be System Preferences!

It took me a second to realize this is F*****G Firefly! I love that show! I've watched the entire series a few times. Seeing this made my day.

Shiny! :D

Seriously, some of the best character design I've ever seen. I would totally watch this if it were turned into an animated show and/or movie.
mysolitarydream Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2012
If this were a cartoon, I'd watch the hell out of it.

I love how you captured their personalities.

Mr. Universe: Can't stop the signal Mal. Everything goes somewhere, and I go everywhere.

Book: River, please, why don't you come on out?
River: No! Can't. Too much hair.
Book: Is that it?
Zoe: Hell, yes, preacher! If I didn't have stuff to get done I'd be in there with her! River, honey? He's putting the hair away now.
River: It doesn't matter... it'll still be there... waiting.

The greatest show in the 'verse!!! I LOVE FIREFLY!!!

Wonderful style. You caught every personality right on. Always wishing for new Firefly and would be thrilled beyond belief if there was even an animated that looked half as good as your work. Amazing.

I have only ONE problem with this. And other than this one teensy tiny thing this is pretty bloody perfect.

You should have included Jayne's hat. :)

Sure, go ahead!
I dont mind people borrowing, as long as there is no print/money made, and that my name is written somewhere.
Thank you for asking my permission! It greatly appreciated! Have fun and lets spread the Joss Whedon love! :)

This makes me think maybe Joss should try making an animated series. Love it! You really nailed the personality of the characters, even Vera :XD:
