River kick'n Reavers's Butt by Kristele River kick'n Reavers's Butt by Kristele
At long last, some brand new Firelfy/Serenity art! :)

This one is special! I made it for Homère, a very good friend of mine! He is a huge River fan!

Joyeux Noel Homère!!! :hug:

The climax scene of the Serenity movie: River killing all those Reavers bas?%#*! :lol:

No power in the 'verse can stop her, that's for sure!

You mean the one that happened mostly off-screen and only in a ten or fifteen second close shot that prevented you from making heads or tails of what was going on?

These are awesome! I had actually seen your stuff before (I'm a hardcore Dune fan too,) but didn't make the connection. Lol..... I love the derp-ing reavers in the background....

Fluide comme un poisson dans l'eau!
(ok, mauvais jeux de mots sur le prénom River...>x<)

Les Reavers étaient terrifiants dans les premiers épisodes!! °_°
Quand ils étaient encore planqués dans leurs impressionnants vaisseaux.
Mais dès qu'on les voit bah ça casse tout. Ils ressemblent à des putains de zombies, de la chaire à canon. Des carcasses ambulantes qui ne demandent qu'à être découpées haché-menu. >B]
Donc ouais, le seul moment où j'aime bien River c'est quand elle bousille des Reavers! >XD

Très joli dynamisme dans ce dessin au fait! :heart:

Love the perspective, and her expression. For some reason the reavers look like sterotypical drunken irish guys to me, but sometimes my brain is odd like that. :)

Awe-striking. The angles, the perspective, the sheer badassery of River cutting Reavers down as a lawn mower to grass. Brilliant job with this.

Again, freakin' awesome; i've always had a liking for your style, an almost angular look.

Hope the other movies don't fall through, we need to see more of that flying piece of gosa, there was just too much left undone!

Nice. I just discovered you through the long and winding road of favs... I love your style.

Oh, what would be great is a *what if* fight scene between River and Cameron(Terminator SCC) as they're the same actress.

What I wouldn't give for a talent like yours to do stuff from my fics... *le sigh*

Love the expression for River - she kicks ass like she would dance, with a calm, fluid expression.

Your fanart for this fandom is absolutely spectacular, but this is probably my favorite. :]

I love how you can just *feel* the grace from River. The way her arms are and the arcs of blood. I also adore her "I'm killing all these asses, but am slightly bored in doing so" look on her face.
