"Originals" - Jen Finity and Tusket Ford










Here are a couple of 'original' characters I made a while back (2008 or thereabouts). The hero is Jen Finity, a space pilot of some sort who runs afoul of the evil pirate Tusket Ford (villain+skull=cool). The name 'Tusket Ford" was lifted from a Ford car dealership in Southwest Nova Scotia...probably one of the coolest names ever. Frazetta's Buck Rogers illustrations very much inspired Jen's outfit and color scheme, and the master's passing this last week reminded me of these customs...I figured now was as good a time as any to post them. Call it my own little tip of the hat to the defining fantasy and sci fi artist of the last half-century.
