BSG Fanart (Attn Leigh and Amber!)  
Okay, so last week, the incredibly awesome Leigh, otherwise known as gamesiplay, told us that she planned on going to a Halloween party dressed as Starbuck, from the new Battlestar Galactica series. This was a sincerely awesome decision on her part and, when I saw the photos, I knew I had to draw a picture.

Then I thought about Amber, my other BSG buddy. Then I thought about how I wished I'd had the idea to dress up as Boomer for Halloween (not that I had anywhere to go, but whatever). And so, the following picture took shape:

Three Raptor Pilots: Meredith, Leigh and Amber

Obviously, Leigh gets to be Starbuck, I get to be Boomer, and Amber can be whoever she wants (though I think she'd make a great Apollo). I tried to get the flightsuits exactly right-- it took awhile. Also, I hate drawing guns, but otherwise, I think it turned out really awesome. (And, yes, I know my hair isn't regulation, but I don't cut my hair for anyone, even fictitious military powers. ^_~)

So, Leigh, here's the pic, as promised-- with your two wingmen on either side! ^__^

Hee! :D That is so, so awesome.

*grins* I'm glad you like it! I hope I didn't insult you by comparing you to Apollo. ^_~

Haha. Nope. I thought about it for a minute, then I remembered his whole defying-his-father, supporting-the-president thing, and I really liked the comparison. :)

Hee. Good, 'cause that's what made me think of you. ^__^

Oh, Meredith, you are seriously one of my favorite people ever. I love it so much. I wish you could see how much I'm smiling right now. Thank you.

*memories this immediately*

*smiles brightly, hugs Leigh* I'm so happy you like it! Your Halloween pics provided excellent inspiration, especially the one of you with the glasses. You're very welcome.

:) After seeing you and Leigh rave about it, I finally succombed and dove into the wonder that is Battlestar Galactica last week. I have to say you all were right - it is a beautiful thing. I'm also slightly in love with both Apollo and Starbuck.

Very beautiful drawings there - the uniforms are pretty darn good.

Darn, if I'd know you'd started watching BSG, Aby, I would have added you to the pic! (Of course, I don't know what you look like, but... yeah. ^^;) You can have Apollo and Starbuck-- I'm a Boomer girl all the way. *grins madly* It's an awesome series, isn't it?

I'm so glad you like the drawing. The uniforms were pretty crazy-making.

Eh, I've only just started and I only just posted about it.
I like Boomer just fine. And Tyrol. And Cally. And Adama. And Roslin. And probably others. Oh. Helo!
But I adamently despise Gaius and Six to the point where I'm almost tempted to fast forward through any scenes involving them.

I have, however, dumped Simon Tam in favor of Apoll as my outer space boyfriend and invited Starbuck to come along with the ride.

As for what I look like...sometime in the next day or two I'll be posting the only pic from when Katherine, Leigh and I got together (they'll kill me soon if I don't post it).
