Jason Moore and Tyria (by Brandon Hill) by WildSpaceSaga Jason Moore and Tyria (by Brandon Hill) by WildSpaceSaga
Well, this takes me back!  

I haven't drawn this guy in a VERY long time, people.  In fact, the last time I drew him, I was probably still in high school.  To put things in perspective, I graduated in '95.  He was one of my first characters that I'd developed a real plot about, and even a story that I called "The Space Cowboy," hence the futuristic duster jacket.  So even back then, I was into "Wild-West-in-space" ideas, as you can see.

Jason's stories were pretty elementary compared to the actual books and short stories I write today, so I shelved him with plans to make him into something for later.  I think I've finally found a home for him in Wild Space Saga, as well as Tyria, his lady love.  I have a bit of an idea to develop him into sort of a legend dating back to the First Imperium, whom Xerx and his crew "unearth."  His presence may lead to all sorts of new adventures.  I already have some ideas for him that Terry and I will be tossing back and forth.  But expect more nice artwork involving him and Tyria in the future.  

Tyria, btw, is actually human.  Her looks are a throwback to a bygone era during the Imperium when people got a lot of exotic body sculpting done.  She's supposed to be a sort of courtesan.  Still haven't fleshed her character out completely, as she was more or less a "femme fatale" for the old Space Cowboy story.  In this, not so much.  

And yes, I'm aware that they look a little bit like Mal and Inara from Firefly.  That wasn't intentional.  :-P

More to come, folks, so stay tuned!  

And yes, Jason will most likely still be a space cowboy, of sorts.

I really like this, a perfect pic of space western, it has a familiar feel yet has an original look. I really like the jacket along with the facial tattoo.

Thanks!  But it isn't the best drawing I've done of him.  But I hadn't drawn that guy in years and years.  I think any others I do will be better.
