NOW IN COLOR Sci-Fi Heroes by dusty-abell NOW IN COLOR Sci-Fi Heroes by dusty-abell
Here's a link to the smaller sized version-[link]

Well, here it is in luxurious digital color! This thing has preoccupied so much of my free time I'm grateful to have finally finished it, although at the same time, it has been one of the funnest things I've ever done. Big ups to the main man, Kelsey Shannon for invaluable tips to help my metal and flare effects look better than they would have otherwise, I hope I didn't overdo it too much, I tried to restrain myself, but damn I like how the Cylon came out! It's all digital, the Eagle Transporter took the longest to draw and Richard Benjamin as Quark is probably the most obscure character. The Cintiq made coloring this thing ALOT easier than if i'd had to use the ole lasso tool and pen tool in photoshop alone, thank you awesome guys at Wacom!

I hope I included a favorite of yours along with all the rest of the coolest bunch of characters to hit a television screen in an age, enjoy my friends!

GREATEST AMERICAN HERO is definitely from the 80s, not the 70s, bro.  ;)

Where's Electro Woman & Dynagirl? No SHAZAM either? I still think it's great work.

Great idea!
What about a similar picture featuring Irwin Allen's series and characters?
What about the same for Gerry Andersons' ones?

Dusty this is one of your better pieces by far! Do you have a key to who all these folks are? I recognize most of them, but there are 2 or 3 giving me trouble:

1. The mostly naked fellow in the yellow shorts

2. The fellow in the gray-green jacket next to the TARDIS who seems to be pulling the skin off his hand?

3, The blonde woman in the blue shorts also next to the TARDIS... is that supposed to be Jamie Sommers the Bionic Woman, or is that someone else?

1. The Man From Atlantis - Patrick Duffy
2. The Invisible Man - David McCallum
3. Yep, I took that to be TBW as well.

No Gemini Man...?

Very cool!

...or do you mean the guy next to Patrick Duffy? Wondered who he was - was expecting a reference to his watch for the Gemini Man.

Great image, like that you have the pilot Wonder Woman (Cathy Lee Crosby) and the series character (Lynda Carter)

Yep, and he had a plastic see thru shield & cruised around in a Chevy van....... The 70's were awesome!

Baker will always be my favorite Dr., probably because he was the first one I ever watched!

It's kind of a toss up between Baker and McCoy for me.  I love 'em both rather equally.
