Washington's Blues by dragonsong12 Washington's Blues by dragonsong12
Apologies in advance for the spoilers.

Oh, I've been meaning to do this picture ever since Revelation ended. My first thought at the end of that was "Oh, I want to see Washington on Blue Team, he's going to be SO miserable!" :D
Washington, just a fascinating character - in Reconstruction, I liked him - in Recreation, I was furious at him! - In Revelation, he managed to redeem himself. I just love this guy.

I got Junior into this one, too! I meant to include him in the Blue Team picture - even drew him into it - but he looked so terrible, I cut him out. Managed to fit him in here, though, as well as a few other in-jokes.

I spent a little more time on the armor on this one as well, and I'm pretty pleased with it. Especially the helmet...hoo boy! The helmet I drew before was just a mess! :D Happy to return to some RvB, especially since people seemed to like those first few images. I hope you enjoy! :D

Design, again, based on Luke McKay's depiction of the characters. Go check out his awesome designs!

Junior is up above, waiting to practice his first assassination.

It's important to learn these things while you're young, after all. :rofl:

Ironicly, as stated previously, he looks much younger and more healthy now and days.

Indeed! That's what I get for sticking to McKay's designs! ^^; Though on the plus side, this design is actually pretty fun to draw.

He has been in a couple of my group pictures. :nod: The RvB pics are tough, though, because of the armor, so I have to be really excited about an idea to get behind one. ^^;

Do a comic!

:icondragonsong12:
dragonsong12 Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I already do, actually! Two of them in fact! :D

...If you mean an RvB comic, though, that's just not in the cards. ^^; For one, because I'm not clever enough to write dialogue for these characters. For two, because drawing the armor would be a pain. For three, even without the armor, with two comics already on my plate I just wouldn't have time for another one, even if it were just stick figures.

I'm flattered you think I'd be good enough to do that, though. Thank you!

I suppose it depends. What do YOU think he's doing? :D

...personally, I think he's just hanging out and wants to know what Wash is up to, but I like Junior myself.
I prefer to leave interpretations like that up to the viewer, though. It's more fun that way. :nod:

Why does everyone draw Wash with a head stitch? I don't think they actually had to cut his head open to get Epsilon out.

Do you know who Luke McKay is? He drew the Rooster Teeth comics, but prior to that, he drew the first versions of the RvB characters without their helmets. Here's his design for Wash: [link]

I very intentionally used his designs for all my drawings of the RvB characters - even though some of his designs have now been proven wrong ^^; - my guess is that a lot of other fanartists are simply doing the same thing.

I admit to liking the design myself, but that's probably why you see it so much. You can see all of his designs at that site I linked if you're interested.

Yeah, I know him. Well that certainly explains it. If he did it, then it's pretty much canon.
I think I shall check out his designs.

The look on Wash's face is what seals this for me: he's accepted his fate to preserve what sanity he has left. :XD:
He's realized that being around the Blood Gulch boys means that having Caboose make puppet shows for him, or Junior drool on his helmet, is "normal" for these idiots. He's the new "Church" of the group.

And I bet now he wants to take a leaf out of Church's book and use Sheila to "blow the whole goddamn world". ;)

i know, he's so playful and cheery xDD
... oooooh, i just had a thought. so i already figured that he's more carefree in 9 because it's before the Epsilon incident; MAYBE in season 10, or 11 or sometime in the future, we'll actually see it happen DDD:

I love how Jr. is up there stalking Wash lol is Caboose at the window or is it just me? lol awsome work.

--
-well there's no 'u' in team either. So if I'M not on the team and YOUR not on the team then no ones on the god damn team! The team sucks!
-Hold on i got it. Wash was impregnated with alien babies and South said she wouldn'd help because they are gay....is that it?<--long(funny)story
-I love the Meta! He's a-freaking-dorable in that insane, power-hungry, murderous psychipath way<--(i stole this no copyright intended lol)
