This is great!! I love the brushwork, and Serenity in the background there, and the expressions. :) Awesome job.

Oh, that's lovely! Like an old parchment and ink drawing. Very nice!

I absolutely adore the ink and watercolour work here. You made the minimalist palette work brilliantly (good old Burnt Umber and Payne's Grey *cuddles*). Stunning. The girls' poses are also excellent and I looove that they are smiling through what is clearly just another crazy day for the crew of Serenity :)

Oh, wow, really lovely! The colors are so dusty and subtle, but they just really light up the characters and the ship. And as dorky as it is, that little touch of pine at the top is so pretty.

Aww, I love this! They both look so genuinely happy - I love the sense of motion to their posing, like they've just come together this moment and are clutching at each other for joy and support. The plants make a lovely framing device, Serenity herself looks fantastic, and the overall style really suits the source material. :)

Wow, beautiful! I'm super impressed that your syle can shift from drawing a spaceship to chinese brush style trees and still look so cohesive. Love their expressions too :D

I love this!

I love the implication of Kaylee having been hurt, and the way she's getting support from River, and I love their expressions! The hints of a deeper relationship are there, and also their joy at coming home.

And in the background- that is an amazingly detailed Serenity! I also adore the coloration, and the way it feels like an old Asian print with the style and the bamboo in the corner, but also those pine branches and the coloring making it very old west. This is just... guh! ;) It's gorgeous!

*glomps* Thank you so much!!!

I love the sepias and shadows, and especially Kaylee's hand splayed on River's belly like that. It's such an evocative little gesture. Great work!

I love the colors, how muted they are in contrast to how happy Kaylee and River are. And River's hand holding Kaylee's waist so tight. Just lovely.

Love this so much!! Love the calligraphicness of your inks/brushwork. Choosing a Chinese silkscreen painting style for this is perfect, love the levels you created with the bamboo and tree in the fg, Kaylee and River in the mid and Serenity in the background, always a bastion of hope and survival in the series. Marvelous.

*Awww*. It looks like a cross between an old tin-type photo and a sumi ink drawing--which strikes me as perfect for Firefly. And they are *adorable*. Wonderful work, mystery artist! :D

Lovely - the muted but rich tones and the brushwork work so well.
