Rush and Eli from Stargate: Universe. My two favourite characters from the show (that sadly ended last year).

As a kid I used to watch Stargate: SG-1, but I prefer SGU. And that of course means that SG-1 got 10 seasons and SGU only 2... what can I say, clearly I always fall for the show that doesn't get enough time :XD:


Some of you who are very observant might have already realised this; I painted this using a brush from a great pencil effect brush set:
by :iconmawgallery:
I only used one 'pencil,' pencil 3 in case you want to give it a try yourself.
The only thing I didn't paint with that brush was the hair (incl. facial hair), for that I just used photoshop's default brush.
And can I just say, "Damn you Rush, why can't you just shave!" Because I hate drawing stubble... Oh well, good practise at least...

I made a steps-thingy for this that also has some nice close-ups. And you can see how great the texture of this is, all grimy and smudgy, I love it!

Great picture! I have to disagree with you on the SGU vs. SG-1 thing, as I loved SG-1 and SGA, but really disliked SGU...but to each their own! :aww: I still really like this! :D

lol nope, there is one more person I know about I've once seen his art about Rush. But i think that's pretty much all :D (Actually, there's even a fanclub dedicated to SGU)
I'm just sad they stopped the show, I've seen huge potential in it, if they just let it have one more season I'm sure more people would have like it...

Er.. here on DA?

Yeah, it could have been so great... I mean hte third series could've been very interesting... did they sleep for three years, or a thousand? And what was there at the beginning of the universe? Oh well...

Awesome, Rush was my favorite, I never did get to see season 2 :(
I also watched SG1 as a child, lol. I do think I enjoy SGU more though.

Yeah he was a great character! I always go for the dubious characters it seems :)

Maybe you can watch it online somewhere?

I liked it more because it was more serious and of course the whole mysterious ship thing :)

MoeReiko Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2012
Hehe-
but the dubious one are so much more interesting and fun.
I'm sure I could find it somewhere, i'll have to go hunting around :)


Yeah I was thinking the same thing, it felt far more serious then SG1, thats not to say SG1 was enjoyable, but I found I gravitate more to the serious scfi. here a good example of that. I took a ScF- lit class in high school, and our instructor asked the class which story did they like more, Hitch-hikers guide or 2001- space odyssey, I think everyone (if I remembering right) but me raised their hand for the hitch-hikers guide while I raised my for 2001, lol!

Yeah I liked SG-1 as well and maybe I wouldn't have liked SGU as much if I had seen it as a child. I mean it had some pretty dark storylines in there, and the whole 'who created the universe,' isn't a question I was particularly interested in as a kid LOL

You know, I have never seen Space Odyssey... It's been on the TV loads but I always manage to miss it...

Yup Hal, and he comes back in the 2nd :)
the second one was called- 2010: the year we make contact.

I loved SGU as well. Still havn't gotten around to watching the second season however. And I agree about stubble, it's the worst trying to paint.

It is it is! But he just didn't look like Rush without it...

looks so well!
and it has a texture that firstly I thought you draw this traditionaly :)
as always you did a fantastic job with details.

Nero749 Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2012  Professional General Artist
Yeah, it combines the great texture of traditional with the convenience of not having to work on a massive sheet of paper... :)

Thanks! That's the downside of 'real'charcoal, it's hell to get the details in!
