The Federation, Anime Style by stratosmacca The Federation, Anime Style by stratosmacca
I couldn't very well do an anime styled drawing of Blake's crew without doing one of the Federation too...

Actually, this drawing stemmed from a desire to draw a Federation soldier in an anime style. Then I was looking through reference for Travis the other day and realized how freakin' cool Stephen Greif's costume for Travis was, and I wanted to draw him too. Then I figured, what the hell, I'd throw in all of the bad guys.

So... From left to right we have: A mutoid, Space Commander Travis, Supreme Commander Servalan (the woman everyone loves to hate-- some of us more so than others!), and a Federation trooper.

Blake's 7 is fun! :)

Travis was such a fun villain, as was Servalan :)
For my d20 Star Wars game I made Star Wars versions of a lot of Blake's 7 characters (Blake and Travis being the most prominent)

I love Travis too! :love: Well, version 1.0, anyway. He's too awesome!

I do plan to do more of these guys in anime form. I'm having far too much fun with them, and I'm getting a lot of positive feedback on them too, which continues to surprise me! Not sure if I'll be able to do an entire graphic novel of them, but I can at least promise a few more drawings, at least! ;)

Oh yes, I'd love to see more of these, they suit the style so much! Really gives it a 70s/80s feel actually, ;)
Why would positive feedback surprise you? They're great, and even to people who have never lived...er...heard of Blake's 7, they have great designs and characterizations! :D
Yeah, version 1 was so ruthless...O_O So...inspiring...must...destroy...Blake...*shakes head* Where am I?

I guess it surprises me because for whatever reason, I didn't think B7 fans would be as open to me mucking around with their characters as I did in these anime drawings! But lots of people seem to really like them. I've gotten good feedback on them over at Horizon, which is awesome! And so yes, there will be more! :D

Totally agree about Travis. He's an awesome villain. Very ruthless and calculating... And quite nice to look at too! Destroy Blake? Why yes, Travis, do whatever you like... :drool:

Haha! Stand back and let the man do his job eh? ;) I love the way that he would wear black, and Servalan was in white, sort of cancelled each other out, complete opposites...except in the way of evil-ness of course, but even I think Servalan was more evil than Travis...kinda feel sorry for the guy...she's so horrid to him...
Well, I'm surprised that someone actually a) draws them, and b) has even HEARD of Blake's 7...I thought it was just me and my sad parents! :D

Aww, thanks for the comments. Especially since the show is "a crappy British sci-fi series that nobody watches," right? ;)

Screw that crap.

Anyway, glad you like! And yeah, I had to pick a decent dress for Servalan... Some of her outfits are freakin' bizarre!

Yeah well, it pisses me off because not only was she taking cheap shots at you and egging other people on to do the same (which is so incredibly screwed up in the first place it's mind-boggling), but then she has no problem insulting others on top of that. And I was insulted by her comments. I realize she has issues and insecurities and has to do something to make herself feel better (which somehow includes insulting her own freakin' flesh and blood), but damn...

I will never understand S4-level people... :disbelief:

like i said before, once she opened her big ass yap she lost a powerful ally lol
I'm completely pissed she even said that in the first place, she knows what you take pride in and then, wham!
and I apologize for what she said, I just can't stand her doing that crap to my best friends. :frustrated:
and the whole getting people together against me? she denyed it of course, like she's such a saint.

she's gone beyond S4 crazy lee believe me lol
