River Vision

200 Favourites
15x20 Cold Press Illustration Board
Graphite Pencil

This is half fan piece, half something I've wanted to do since I saw the scene. Art for art's sake, First Impressions.

The scene is from Firely (the series) where River is going through one of her surreal times of insanity. The stick on the ground is picked up, the line "Its just an object, its not what you think it is", followed by finding reality that the stick is a gun and everyone is freaked that nutso chick has it. Wonderfully done cinematically, particuarly as this dancer/actress literally bends herself in half as per the foot in the corner.

This was one of my favorite scenes in the series. I absolutely loved how they combined her insanity with total innocence. This is an amazing piece of work.

I like this seen a lot to because u see things from rivers point of view, and u can truly have a feel of how intelligent and philosophical she really is. You did a really good job drawing it, i love how you drew the hair and for some reason the stick looks really cool to me,

I loved the series, and wished it would carry on. This is one of my favourite scenes ever. I love how the did it. :heart:

Your art is very realistic. I love it. Rivers hair is exactly like you picture it from the film.

The graphite pencil makes it look rough, which I like.

Though it is good enough to look like a photo. :heart:

Beautiful. This scene is one of my favorites, and so is the episode. Summer Glau is amazing. She just... bends all the way over, and you can see the grace in it, and it's incredible. You did it justice. Well done indeed.
