Moya's Pilot | Farscape by sniperdusk Moya's Pilot | Farscape by sniperdusk
I was sitting on this half-finished for a little bit since I couldn't decide on an expression for him. And seriously, one pixel changes his entire face. Decided to go with a very Scratch&Sniff "I don't believe you" kinda look. Poor dude. He is ever so hassled. (And really...I think people ought not be lying to the guy that controls the life support, but that's just me.)

This was the first time I realized I could do watercolor on a completely black background. Which is amazing! And truly weird! Near the top layers, I went at it with a ton of crayon type techniques, though. This was actually done in a ton of layers, cuz I kept being indecisive about how rough or smooth I should aim for, plus I was testing out a bunch of facial expressions and lighting colors. Really complicated, but way too much fun.

I just stumbled across this when looking for reference pictures of Pilot...I am incorporating him into a Moya cosplay that I am doing. But when I saw this...my jaw dropped open. This is just amazingly beautiful. :D

The concept of his whole species is fantastic, and I so appreciate him in particular. (And just visually, he is the absolutely most stunning design from the Jim Henson CS ever. I hope I even got a fraction of the impression of all his details here.)
