Fireflies by OtisFrampton Fireflies by OtisFrampton
This is a digital commission featuring characters from some TV show. Or movie. I forget. Was it a comic book? It wasn't around long, that's all I remember. (UPDATE: That was a joke folks. Of course I know what "Firefly" is. You don't draw a commission for one of the longest running and highest rated animated shows on the Disney Channel without knowing what it is.)

This piece was drawn and colored in Photoshop CS4 using a Wacom Cintiq 21UX.

You can watch a recording of me working on this piece on my Ustream channel here: [link]

P.S. I have a new "Firefly" piece in my gallery as of May 10th, 2013:

I love the details of this--River's vacant stare, the fact that Inara is glaring at Mal, Shepherd lurking in the back pretending not to pay attention (we're on to you, Shepherd Book!)

"You can't take the sky from me." And you even added Wash's dinosaurs! They were some of my favorite characters.

Shiny! I could see this working as an animates series. Must be loads of people available now the the Clone Wars has finished? I wonder if Disney would buy the franchise? I'd trade my best-ist gun to see that!

I read this:

" Of course I know what "Firefly" is. You don't draw a commission for one of the longest running and highest rated animated shows on the Disney Channel without knowing what it is."

I go:

"WHATWHATWHATWHATWHATWHAT"

I -ALMOST- go onto a hour long, and fruitless search for the show you mentioned-... How about eviscerating all my hopes and dreams for more Firefly!?!

You...

You...!

Also, what a brilliant drawing! It got my Firefly sense tinglin' just from the thumbnail. :D

You've captured the characters very well, and I like how you represented Inara and Mal's relationship - nice work :)

I used to watch this cartoon all the time, I can't believe no one remembers it being on Disney! I mean come on, that song Wayne Brady wrote for the theme was great!

I love your version of these characters! Especially Zoe and Wash there haha. <3

Firefly only lasted one season, Fox-TV bought it but couldn't figure out what to do with it. after it was canceled, had a run on SciFi bringing in new fans (how I learned of it). Fans clamored for and got a feature film to bring the story to a close, and deal with several loose ends to the story. It was a really cool show, but just a little off kilter.

I do like your pic. Had it as wallpaper for a few days. My WP constantly changes, as I keep finding cool new pics. Very seldom do I keep 'em around for very long, however. Guess I'd be a poor curator.

This is awesome. Except for the fact that it is a 900x500 picture; which makes seeing this on a 20+ inch monitor not very awesome. Any chance we can get a hi-res version of this?

Thanks! Nope, no chance of a hi-res. It was a commission and only the buyer gets the full version.
