Crew of the Infinity

Bu Tzi Yi and Woodrow3

(l-r: Bu Tzi Yi, Ham, and Woodrow)

IN THE ‘VERSE

I like the idea of Buh Tzi Yi and Woodrow as unlikely partners from opposite sides of the war (Alliance and Browncoat) now working together in the Border Moons as the law…with a pig living in their cargo bay. The odd couple adventures might never stop!

SOURCE MATERIAL

I thought as long as I was drawing/reinventing various Joss Whedon written properties for the ‘verse, I couldn’t ignore one of the first ones in which cowboys, spacemen and livestock all live alongside one another.

I’ll include two of the pictures I used for costume inspiration:

The sheriff’s badge from ‘The Train Job’

The armour worn by Alliance soldiers in the BDM ‘Serenity’.

The Motley Crew series started out with my desire to draw Elgyn’s mercenaries from the far underrated Alien: Resurrection. It progressed to drawing other Whedon-related science fiction characters in a style that lets them fit into the ‘Verse as established in Firefly/Serenity and has since expanded to any motley science fiction crew. My only remaining rule: the original property should not be ‘uniformed.’ (That makes them less than motley)
