A Firefly/Doctor Who themed shirt with River Tam and River Song.

So far, I only have the River Tam part used...







Used Halftones for the shading. Only 5 colors used (including shirt color.)

Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions? Also, if any staff see this, how small can I make the halftone dots?

    This is pretty sweet. I'm imagining them standing back to back, pistols drawn, with the caption "there's no power in the 'verse can stop us."

    @TheSaint08D Thanks, and to be honest, I can't wait either!

    @Odinsravens Thank you. I was actually thinking of having them facing each other, but I think I might make them back to back!

    I don't know if it would be too much cluttler, but what about maybe having the tardis behind river song or near her and have the ship near River Tam?

    I think they should be back to back with the same stance. Other than that it's a great idea and brilliant art.

    it's a cool concept but I do agree it would better if the Rivers were either doing the same pose or back to back in maybe a gun duel stance getting ready. I would buy it if it was picked. Simple but creative

    I think an advantage to having them stand in profile is more facial definition.

    @Odinsravens Yeah, I'm still trying to find some reference material of River song in profile. I tried doing it 100% freehand, but it ended up not looking like her at all. I was thinking of possibly using some shading or even a line or two to give more definition.

    This is my latest draft. I'm not sure about the text...

    Also, I did a mock-up of the image on a teeshirt for fun!

    No chance of seeing River Song in profile? This would be such a sweet design if they were back to back...

    sadly this doesn't do much for me without some facial features...

    anyways its a nice design and a good idea that will probably sell tons anyway :)

    @drwyrick I submitted it like this, and if it doesn't get accepted, I'm going to do it back to back. I've been looking for some reference material of River Song in profile, and I can't find anything that would work on here as well as suit her character. Most of the time when she holds her gun it's at arm's length, and that would make her too wide to have on the shirt without making her incredibly tiny. (I hope that made sense.)

    @PureInvasion If this doesn't get printed as it is, I'm going to try and draw River Song in profile, and give them both more facial features.

    Thanks for the input!

    Love the design, but as you have it on that shirt in picture it would wrap around the sides and youd lose the image under your arms it would need to be much smaller and facial features would improve it I think.

    Due to suggestions here, and on Facebook, as well as the design not getting picked up, I re-drew River Song in profile. I still need to do some shading, but here's where I'm at now.

    Great idea, basic outlines dont cut it though

    love the idea but it's not something i'd buy at the moment. I preferred River (DH) with the white shirt. She looks like a Charlie's Angel in the new one. sorrY!

    I am still adding shading to River song.

    Now, is it the pose, or is it the color? because the color is based on the costume from Season 6 episode 1.

    The main reasons I changed the pose, is because:

    1: It was not chosen as is...
    2: I also felt Song did not have enough facial definition.
    3: Look above at @DoctorWhy, @Gir15, @Ridinggirl, @Odinsravens, @drwyrick, and @PureInvasion's comments.

    I would consider Matt's outline alot more distinctive than River Song's. The River Tam image seems to be from a Sarah Connor Chronicles promotional image but at least its recognisable as Glau.

    I think that if you are using basic outlines, you might consider taking out the halftone/gradients. Just like the picture you referenced.

    @lgb52 Yes, it is more distinctive. Also, Glau's is from SCC, but the most badass pictures of her in Firefly/Serenity, involved her crouching with an axe and a sword :D

    @IG_HateyHate That's something I was thinking, too. I want to add the shading to River Song first, then see how it looks with and without. But as it is, it does provide a nice side-by-side comparison.
