22.02. Jayne Cobb - Firefly by harbek 22.02. Jayne Cobb - Firefly by harbek
A mercenary, Jayne works for Mal because he's the one who can pay him most. He's loyal, at least till something better comes along. Crude, thuggish, but with a sense of humour, and a great fighter with a well-hidden human side.

It's funny, Jayne is an asshole to my favourite character, and overall not a very nice guy, but he ends up being lovable anyway. Again, done in OpenCanvas on one layer, with reference.

You described him perfectly. lol xD There's this moment any Firefly first timer will inevitably have, where they realize they love Jayne and are not sure why, at first anyway. ;P No but srysly, Jayne is just epic, can't imagine the show without him. :heart:

I really do love how Joss fleshed out all those characters though, none of them were one dimensional. Even Jayne, who could have very easily been just your every other thug with a bad mouth and a big gun... but there really was more to him then what we all see at first glance, and really that is the case for many of the Firefly cast. It made them easy to relate to, they felt real, and were loveable, flaws and all. Plus I love the humor, Joss has always had a way of writing drama and serious characters in a way that he still manages to find humor in everything, even if at the expense of a character we may be used to seeing as a bad ass. Which in all honesty, also makes it more real, cuz that's how people really are.

And before I go and forget to mention the art (cuz I really cold spew my love for Joss/Firefly all day long)... OH GOD! You rendered him beautifully! :la: The shading, the colors, and textureing of his skin, everything is so clear and crisp, and spot on! It looks exactly like Jayne/Adam! :D Bravo! :clap:

xD; I didn't think I was a fan of Jayne at the beginning, but he's really grown on me. He's hilarious.
