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!

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:

I think of Wash as the father of the Blue Team, even if he hates it.
Great work. :)

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)

Wash has always been my favorite character. When he betrayed the Reds and Blue, I was like, "Washingtub! Why!!", but I still loved him because he was funny and a bit of a bad ass. Him and Meta make a great team.

I was really glad when he redeemed himself. I'm a little upset that I don't get to watch his life in Blood Gulch. But Freelancers are awesome!

Anyways, Great Job!

I agree, I liked him, then I didn't like him, then I liked him again, after MAIN (NOT the Meta!) turned against him, and he fought him. (Main is still my fav, of all time =D)

Wash may have kind of redeemed himself at the end of Revelations, but he is still my least favorite character, just because he killed, or caused to be killed, four of my top six favorite characters...
1: Donut </3
2: Lopez
3: Meta
4: Omega

Darn emp.
And yes, I do pronounce it as 'ehmp' now.Just because tha sounds so hilarious when I'm playing CoD with my friends and they say, 'I'm gonna launch the EMP.' And I say 'oh, you mean the ehmp.' and they're like, 'What?'

I may dislike Wash, but some of his quotes are my favorite... Like the 'sane' quote... That is one of the quotes i use as my personal catchphrase in real life...

Sooooo....I take it you aren't a site subscriber? ;)

Much as I loved Omega and Meta as characters, their loss didn't really bother me, as villains it was sort of expected it was going to happen eventually, and I credit the Blood Gulch boys more with Meta's destruction (and it was AWESOME! :headbang: Wish we would have him again, but man, what a way to go!)
Lopez didn't bother me either, since he explicitly stated he wasn't worried about dying because he'd made a backup, so Lopez isn't dead.

Donut was the thing that really made me hate Wash for a long time...
(SPOILERS BEYOND HERE!)
but there's a cut scene from Season 8 that's only available to subscribers on the site. We tend to fall behind on watching the vids on the site because watching the DVD's is so much more fun, but when watching the season 8 commentary, Bernie lamented that this particular scene got cut for space - and I'm with him, it's kind of important. See, Donut's not dead.
I was kind of suspicious since Wash shot him with a pistol, and it had been stated that pistols were practically like being unarmed, but then Doc confirmed it (I should've remembered that Doc's not the best at medicine. ^^; )
Anyway, the cut scene is when Church commands the computer to release the Reds from armor lock, she asks him if he wants to release ALL Red units and he tells her yes, release all Red units. Then the scene pans back to Valkyrie with her repeating "Release armor lock, Red Units" and Donut hops to his feet wondering where the hell everyone else got to. The implication being - like with Sarge in Season 2 - once he got injured, his armor went into lockdown...and Doc's an idiot. (He is, but we love him anyway)

Long story short (too late) that's when I felt okay liking Wash again. If anything, I'm mad that scene's not on the DVD, because it's really kind of important, but knowing that it exists makes it a lot better.

NOT THAT THIS MEANS YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO HATE HIM! You certainly are, that's why these things are awesome, everyone responds to them differently, it's just my own thoughts on the matter. :)

You know, that actually makes total sense. I should've thought of the fact that Doc sucks when he said that Donut was definitely dead, so...
-walks up to Wash-
Me: I'm sorry for all the death threats. -apology hugs-
Wash: Umm... WTF?
(PS The above dialogue is totally going into my comic. Eeheehee! -runs away to draw-)
