Jayne Cobb by CantonHeroine Jayne Cobb by CantonHeroine
I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE FIREFLY, and the character of Jayne especially, so I went the whole hog on this one.
3H - 6B and a fineliner pen for some of the straight edges.
There are so many layers built up, I can't even count. I probably went through half a can of fixative.
I should also mention that there is extensive use of the eraser to get that transparent glowy look.

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-08-25
When you hear people ask the question, why does deviantART have fanart on the site, well, tell them to take a look at the amazing pencil rendering seen here in Jayne Cobb by ~CantonHeroine.
This is how it's done kids. And plus, how can you resist Firefly's resident bad ass Jayne? ( Featured by lolly )

Lovely piece. Just adore the delicate nature of your line quality and how you've achieved such a great contrast between the softness of skin and fabric verses the strict starkness of the gun. Very nice. :)

I had to stare at this one for about three whole minutes before I was done looking. What a super job! Not just the attention to detail and mastery of the medium...but you've captured Jayne's look perfectly! I can't say exactly what sets yours apart from the other Jayne art out there...but it's something.
