Galactica: TAS by GarryHenderson Galactica: TAS by GarryHenderson
When I saw that ~gutz had uploaded this to his gallery, I immediately asked him if I could color it. The lineart's been sitting on the hard drive for about a week while I finished up some other gigs, but I finally had enough free time to color this last night.

To say that I'd watch this if it were an animated series is probably an understatement.

I'm a pretty hardcore Galactica geek. I honestly prefer Galactica over Star Wars, which is saying a lot since I love Star Wars. It's pretty common knowledge that I'd put out on the first date if someone gave me Galactica art, which probably makes Paul pretty happy that he sketched this for *grantgoboom and not me. I'd sell my first born to be involved on an official BSG product.

Sadly, being the BSG geek that I am, I've even come up with a storyline that would allow the show to continue as an animated series after they arrived at nuked Earth...

I did change the lineart just a little bit from Paul's original sketch. I added the tattoo to help sell the Starbuck character so she wouldn't be confused with just another chick with a BFG.

Lineart: :icongutz: (original pencils here [link] )
Colors: me (duh)

Heck, I'd watch it. It'd HAVE to be better than Galactica 1980.

BSG has never had a gun like that. The Gun brings this piece way over the top because this is a modern retro show, it never aimed to be ultra sci fi with ultra high tech gadgets.

Nice. Better than my version. I was gonna do the tattoo, but I saw some reference pics on google where she didn't have it. I don't watch the show, so I don't know any better.

Ah, the BFG. A most excellent choice of weaponry, as versatile as it is unsubtle. Nothing makes your point quite as clear as the most ridiculous caliber round fired at the highest rate of speed possible this side of FTL.

I was sad when they didn't reference the BFG as the Big Fuggin Gun in the Doom movie =D

Thanks WC. BSG would make for such a sweet animated show. I'd probably enjoy it even more than the series.

WillCaligan Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2008
Now I could see that and I would probably watch it. I just think the new show got to political. That was not the BSG I remember as a kid. Plus they took out the cool egytian designs for the fighter pilots and made them too much like a normal pilot. But I know there are a ton of folk that love it.

Yeah, I really miss all the Egyptian references in the new series. My favorite episode from the original series was when they found the planet with the pyramids on it. About the only mythology references in the new show is simply the names of characters and planets. To me that was one of those coolest elements of the original simply because it tied Earth to the colonies and got yer imagination working.

WillCaligan Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2008
That was my feelings exactly. I thought the egyptian thing tied the colonies to earth. I just wish they would have kept that part and I aint big on a woman being starbuck either. But that is just me. I believe there can be strong woman, look at Buffy, but to me starbuck is too butch.

Anyway, I checked out the lineart and must says this: I love the color scheme!

Haha, my Galactica collection cost more than all of my Cowboys memorabilia, and that's saying a lot considering I just dropped $400 on another Cowboys item.

:enter retro theme song here:

I got giddy when the SciFi version first aired and they had the scene in the museum. The old theme song was playing and they had replicas of the old Cylons, Raiders, and Starbases on display. I was all "squeeeee!" and my roomies couldn't understand why =D

Thanks bud. Hard to find good BSG lineart that I can color fast. All of the stuff I find is the highly detailed stuff from Dynamite's comics, and those would end up taking longer than I can afford.
