Continuing my own personal 'How fast is your spaceship?' scifi nerdiness series. This one, LEXX.
Lexx was a show that was certainly out there but ever since I saw the first episode I wanted to paint Stanley Tweedle (4th class security guard, intergalactic loser and accidental captain of the LEXX) and now I have.

Pencil and ink, painted in Photosop.

If you ever watch the show, you'll know that that's kind of the whole vibe with LEXX  :D

If only he had to sucker-punch Stanley for ever stupid decision he ever made.

Great art, I enjoyed it all the way up to the start of the last season, they didn't need that IMHO

For some reason I never made it to the last season.. but that doesn't sound such a bad thing now :D

I believe that the last season broke the show, not wanting to give spoilers

I think I only saw one episode of this show then it disappeared forever.

At one stage I was painting covers for a DVD distribution company here in Australia and they gave me a stack of titles they were selling... including the complete Lexx series. A lot of it has not aged well and its definitely not to everyones taste, but there is fun to be had in its wackiness I think!

LEXX is a weird and wonderfully wacky German/Canadian scifi show from the 1990's. Not sure how well it holds up nowadays but it was fun to draw the characters!

Im surprised you didnt include Red Dwarf along with these speed images

Just couldn't think of a good enough gag about the speed of the space ship ;) I did some Red Dwarf art anyway... maybe I'll post it sometime soon :D

How about this:
Dave: "Red Dwarf can go light speed! It just takes her a few million years of acceleration."
Holly: "Too bad everybody is dead by then."
Dave: "Everybody is dead?"
Holly: "Yes Dave, everybody is dead."
These jokes about ship speed are great by the way. Thanks for sharing them.

Thanks for the good memories!
