Alec and Maggie by zeldamacgregor Alec and Maggie by zeldamacgregor
This is a tribute to one of my favorite cartoons ever: ExoSquad. It was epic. Alec and Maggie were my favorite characters, and even though the show was on in the very early 90's and I was a wee lass, I never forgot about them.

The style is a little bit of a departure for me because I intentionally avoided using a heavy outline and tried to just paint it. I know there are issues with some of the shading, but for a first sincere shot at it, I'm pretty okay with how this turned out. I like the hair on both of them and the fabric on her jumpsuit, at least. The background is a little goofy, but after trying a lot of things, I decided something sort of abstract and 90's looking was the right thing to do, so that's why there's a very 90's color palette and the ExoSquad logo.

Painter IX, Wacom, and lotsandlots of love.

You don't know how happy I am to see some signs of life for this show, it's makes all happy and nostalgic squeeing all at the same time.
That being said I am currently looking for a fan artist to do an accompanying piece for Small Fandom Big Bang fic.
If you are interested or have any other suggestions please let me know.

Thank you and take care, karrenia

A quote FROM EPISODE: Abandoned.



Alex: Ah, Maggie. Gentle lies the hand of woman.

Maggie: Not if you keep feeding me lines like that.

Alex: But I say that to all the officers.

/hi5 fellow exosquad fan.
When is you're second sincere shot coming? As a matter of fact, how about you make a whole gallery of exosquad stuff!

My favorite scene with Alec was when they crash landed on Venus with the traitor. He and JT were trying to decide what to do with her and JT offhandedly remarked that they either bring her along or execute her because they can't have her going back to the sapes, Alec casually brought out his blaster and said, "if you really mean that..." he was intel officer through and through. =)

Hi! I also love that scene! He tried to kill her like twice right after that, too. It was pretty rad.

I'd love to do a lot more Exo Squad stuff. I have another one drawn and partially colored, but I haven't had a lot of time to work on it lately. Thanks for stopping by!
