No Power in the Verse

I chose the phrase "No power in the 'verse can stop me" said by multiple characters in the show Firefly.

Mood Boards

I wanted to go with a rustic, space cowboy look for this one so I gathered a few images that I felt portrayed that feeling.

I chose to make a poster style for the phrase.

Large Sketch

Here is the direction that I started moving in.

I loved Cecilia's suggestion of a steampunk exploration. I decided go that route. Here are the thumbnails I played with:

From there, I started on a new penciled rough sketch.

Final Inked

I found it very difficult to trace steadily. No matter how much I tried to focus my hand just wasn't steady. I'm hoping daily practice will help steady my hands.

I am grateful for the tips about tracing in ink to make the digital part easier. I'm using Illustrator CC and didn't find a good image trace that would keep the details. I would like to find something that works.

Here is my initial digital version.

Playing with color and texture

I tried to go for a steampunk style with this. I used brushed metal and metal panel textures to try give it that brassy feel.

I'm going to keep playing with it since I don't feel like the colors or textures really feel good. It's too real texture with hand lettering which makes it seem unreal. I'm going to try more hand textures to see if it can pull it together.
