As i said a few days ago, i have an ambitious project for all Summer Glau and TSCC fans (and Firefly fans in the future why not); it's at a very early stage (basically only in my mind) and it does not rely on me exclusively so that i cannot garantee its feasability; i will give you more info about it as soon as i progress.

To my knowledge, it has not been done among the TSCC community, whereas it's common in other tv show fandom. I'm working on it as i'm typing these lines and i can give you a first glance into what can be done (i'm not the cartoonist, i don't have that talent)

Summer Glau as Cameron

A sample of the drawings made for this project are in the Gallery.

Good Luck with that. I would help, but I have never done any art in my life.

Great drawing, is the identity of the cartoonist a secret?

The project is not the fanart themselves, but what you can do with them. You've talked yourself about it (in another form) in the Wiki for days.

I'm sorry, but I just have no idea what you mean.

Maybe it is a cartoon continuation of TSCC?

Yes!

We're still looking for the right way to draw Summer Glau. I have asked him to make a few drawings for me that i have already scanned and shall unveiled them soon.

I think its a great idea! I was a bit amused that while we explained our various theories we could basically write fanfics ourselves with that material. There are very good and innovative ideas I think which'd worth implementing.

And those without artistic skills can participate too. One problem with the Calendar project was in my opinion that people like me can't do much about it other than giving ideas because I really, really suck with photoshop. But here we can help by what we always do: making theories about TSCC and its continuation. I'm definitely better with words than with photoshop.

It won't be a walk in the park, Summers face is extremely hard to do right so it has a real Summer-ish feeling( saw many failed attempts). Its not easy to reproduce that level of perfection biggrin . But I saw a few good attempts too already so its not impossible I guess, good luck!


Summer Glau is so awesome, it isn't even funny!

My goal is not to make a photo-like version of Cameron and John; the drawing should have it's own style and personality. Until now, i'm satisfied with the version i uploaded in my first post (minor details can be changed though); i also have to respect the style of the artist somehow, even if i decide ultimately. The girl portrayed here looks not too young, nor too old imo and is really beautiful.

I will soon show you different portraits and ask for your opinion.

Contribution from Wiki members would be very much appreciated indeed; it's not the time though. The artist and i have planned to do a number of fanarts first to get used to the drawings and to TSCC universe. Thinking about a comics will come later in the process.

Back to Summer's aspect in the future fanart.
I will show you various representation of Cameron taken from the net as well as drawing from the cartoonist participating to this project and give my preferences; feel free to give your opinion too.
Click on thumbnails for bigger image.

This representation of Cameron is cute and also like-looking but maybe too child looking for my taste.

This one is a free interpretation of the artist, using its own manga style. If the context is enough to indicate we're talking about John and Cameron, i would prefer a more like-looking image. More, people in manga look ten years younger than their real age; given than occidentals (American and Europeans) don't share these visual codes, i prefer older looking Cameron and John.

I like this one because the characters portrayed in this case seem to have the proper age (teenagers in TSCC); also they share a good ressemblance with John and Cameron.

Here is another trial from the artist; though beautiful, the women portayed here don't match exactly the image i'd like to see in future drawings.

I have to take into account the skills and the style of the artist participating though, this is why i don't advocate a striking ressemblance, as long as the characters pleases us. Also it's one thing to make an accurate picture of Summer Glau taken from a promo pic but drawing a character in a drawing board or a comic is a completely different exercise.

Side note : i have the feeling to start a project from scratch like what we did for The Summer Glau Calendar; i hope the final product will be as rewarding.

This is the best so far I think. I don't support the idea to make it manga style. TSCC is too western for it, you can't really adapt it into a manga.

It could use some more work I think. Beautiful picture but I think it needs to resemble Summer a bit more. Not like a photo but some small trait is enough so we all think about Summer when we see it.

Will we also send it to Summer when its completed?

We share the same views Blazius. Unfortunately this drawing is not from the artist who is willing to help us (let's call him Eric), only the last one is.

I have to deal with the artist skills and he is basically a manga cartoonist. But i will weight as much as i can so that the style will not be too manga-ish.
Eric's drawing in my first post is fine imo, it just have to be a little bit more like-looking and it will be perfect.

We have to make there is no copyrigth issues when making a fanzine first.

Yes, the manga influence is minimal. But its a bit too "conventional hot girl"-ish I think. He should think less about Cameron is supposed to be hot and more about how Summer looks like I think. Thats my feeling about the pictures.

I will tie Eric to a chair with a blank paper and a pencil until he makes these two pics identical.
