Origin Heroes Profiled In New SketchesDenis Loubet has drawn a new pair of images based on some of his early work at Origin. They depict the twin stars of Ultima and Wing Commander reflecting on the struggles they face. Wingnuts at the CIC Forums helped provide reference material and recommendations on Bluehair's look. It's really cool to see them side by side in a similar style like this, and these works of art would look great framed. Check out the links below for more detail, and note that these are only partial resolution versions. The full res originals are available to Denis' Patreon subscribers.
Out of the blue, just because I wanted to do something for my patrons, comes the Avatar and Bluehair! These two pictures depict introspective studies of our favorite heroes.
The Avatar is recalling all the creatures that have fallen before him who must have had complex inner lives he was not privy to, and questioning the simplicity of the virtues he is sworn to uphold.
Bluehair is recovering from the adrenaline charged chaos of a dogfight, wondering if he made the right choice to join the navy to defend the Terran Confederation from the depredations of the Kilrathi Empire.
Or not. I'm just guessing what's going on in their heads. You should decide for yourself what their grey matter is contemplating.
Many thanks to the Wing Commander CIC forums for their expertise regarding Bluehair's insignia. (Note that I decided to leave Bluehair's name plaque off his jacket because his name isn't really Bluehair, and his name should really be whatever you gave him when you played the game.)
Enjoy, and thank you so much for all your help! :D
