#4 Jason Templar

#4 Jason Templar — Jason is a starship captain aboard the Star Ranger patrol ship, Foxfire One.  Jason is a workaday captain more interested in exploring space, aiding the injured, and stopping a problem than the paramiltary rankings amoung the Rangers. As it is, he is the ideal of the American western: causal, good humored, hard working, fair treatment with others, etc. Foxfire One’s other crew members are Lis’a Roan (Jason’s wife — the ship’s engineer) and Doctor Gene Hu (the ship’s civilian medical and science officer)( the Ridgerunner class patrol ships have an average crew of three to five).

The Foxfire One series was my idea for the great American science fiction novel. I thought it would be great if I could get all my diverse science fiction characters together for one big, splashy adventure that pitted the heroes against an alien invasion. The lead characters would be this little patrol ship that would end up carrying all the heroes to the climatic fight scene. Unfornately, I’ve been playing with this idea for ten years.

More of these characters will be seen for the first time in my falling posts.

Hi Gang!! Here I am for my third go around with this art challenge. I have high hopes to finish with at least 30 new characters this year. Last year"s schedule was hectic for me, so I only did 16 drawings. And while that number doesn't count it here; it does mean I already have a dozen characters waiting in the wings, simply because I didn't have the time to draw them out. Onward and upward!!! There seems to be a few new things happening this year: there are a lot of people who started early, and a lot of them are damn good. This latter should encourage all of us to churn out better characters and art as the challenge wears on. Good luck to us all.
