Firefly Brown Coat Propaganda Poster

By MikePerryArt
225 Favourites
This is a Fan Art piece that I put together based off of some characters from the Firefly tv series. I wanted to do something different that the main body of Firefly fan art so I cooked up this recruitment poster for the main character's unit in the fictional independence war. Fans of the show will notice a few easter eggs and get the beans reference. Here's a quick tutorial describing how I went about painting this image. mperryart.blogspot.ca/2013/04/…

Now you can buy a Print or a T shirt!

The Chinese says ( according to google translate) "Balls and Bayonets Brigade". This was the moniker used by the 57th during the war. Badger also mentions it in one of the episodes. I thought that it would be a fun easter egg for the fans.

You know, this is the BEST Firefly fan art I've ever seen. It should have more love, a lot more. You got Fillion's deer-in-the-headlights look down.

Hey Thanks! I appreciate the feedback and your kind comments. I've got one more Firefly piece on the go so maybe that one will get the love more than this ;)
