Firefly - Jayne by Kristele Firefly - Jayne by Kristele
A lot of fellow deviants asked me for individual higher resolution of my Firefly characters. So here goes!

The hero of Canton, the man they call Jayne...
I just love him... Never sure if you can trust him or not. And so funny and simple of mind at the same time!
Adam is a real hunk!
I know, I know. I should've drawn him with his hat. Next time! :)

He's missing his hat... Oh well. I know he didn't originally have it, and he looks great here anyways! nice work!

Jayne is a weird combination of adorable, badass, and frustratingly untrustworthy. I love him almost as much as Wash!
Wintercross Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2014
Great... now I totally want a Firefly animated series! =P

I think he was only truly loyal to Mal and Kaylee.

MattmanDude Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2013

Makes me think of "The Road To El Dorado"
BigGuyWhoKills Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2013

Awesome! But you really should do a picture of him with the hat... It's like a part of his body is missing

*starts humming "Hero of Canton"* Ah that Jayne, can't live with him, yet ya can't live without him =P He's really a quite interesting character and I would say one of the best on the show (as long he's not being shipped with River by the fans :bleh: whu do ma, don't even get me started on opening up that gorram can of worms!). Yes, you should draw him with his hat, afterall, it is a very cunning hat =P

Totally Jayne! Love it!
spike360 Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2011
Fantastic pic! I like Jayne as one of my favorite characters on Firefly! His actor, Adam Baldwin, is really cool, and Mr. Baldwin is also in Independence Day (the Roland Emmerich-directed sci-fi/disaster film) as an Area 51 administrator named Major Mitchell. That was before he had a goatee. As for me, I considered doing sketches of some of my favorite Firefly characters, including Mal, Jayne, and especially Wash.

Love your stylized characters. Haven't looked through the rest of your gallery so you might have done this already but would love to see more fan art of some other shows you watch.

The Man they call Jayne!

Oh, He robbed from the rich
and he gave to the poor.
Stood up to the man
and he gave him what for.
Our love for him now
ain't hard to explain.
The hero of Canton
the man they call Jayne.

Our Jayne saw the mudders' backs breakin'.
He saw the mudders' lament.
And he saw the Magistrate takin'
every dollar and leavin' five cents.
So he said: "You can't do that to my people."
said "You can't crush them under your heel."
So Jayne strapped on his hat
and in 5 seconds flat
stole everythin' Boss Higgins had to steal.

Oh, He robbed from the rich
and he gave to the poor.
Stood up to the man
and he gave him what for.
Our love for him now
ain't hard to explain.
The hero of Canton
the man they call Jayne.

Now here is what separates heroes
from common folk like you and I.
The man they call Jayne
he turned 'round his plane
and let that money hit sky.

He dropped it onto our houses
he dropped it into our yards.
The man they called Jayne
he stole away our pain
and headed out for the stars!

(Here we go!)

He robbed from the rich
and he gave to the poor.
Stood up to the man
and he gave him what for.
Our love for him now
ain't hard to explain.
The hero of Canton
the man they call Jayne...

Great work...
the most frightening thing about Jayne, though, is that Vera is the name of my grandmother.... >.>

In the words of Han Solo, " I said he's my friend, I never said I trust him." Fits Jayne so perfectly. Jayne is so reliable....unless he doesn't wanna be.
