# As a little artistic exercise I decided to draw the cast of Battlestar in the style of other artists on B3ta


Edit: Here are links to the profiles of each of the artists I was emulating
JollyJack
Walrus Man
HappyToast
Smallbrainfield
TheSundaeLunch
mofaha
chopchopchopchop
Matazone

And I am open to suggestions for other artists.

Biro, you say? Wow, that's confidence! Looks great though!

# Biro just works better for me than, say, fineliner.
You can get a lot more tone in a piece, and of course, you can vary from really sharp detailed work like on the APC, and more scruffy unkempt lines like in my other stuff. :P

The Mod scene

Elvis
Hendrix (with a freaky neck addition, BTW!)
Floyd's "Dark Side..." prism, as well as the Pig on the wing
Sgt Pepper
Pearl Jam (ba-DUM-tish)
Possible Nirvana's "Nevermind" dollar bill

and (last on the list of course) The Fat Lady singing


But whatever, that really is a fantastic piece of work, Captain.

Kudos.

The Nevermind baby is there, reaching for the dollar, albeit in zombie mode. His head is rising from behind George Harrison's shoulder. The rest of him is all in green.
And thank you.

Recognised the style for all those I knew (if that makes sense), so your artistic exercise worked, as well as producing some crackin' arts.

Have to say that I think the portrayals of Six, Tigh and Starbuck with their associated "artist" are especially inspired.
