Drunken Runaway Dots by rebel-penguin Drunken Runaway Dots by rebel-penguin
Well this has turned into a runaway project, started out as just a rough sketch i was planning on quickly coloring, making really cartoony but... well i have this bad habit of zooming in real far to add detail and i think i went too far lol. These are DRDs for those of you who never watched Farscape (an awesome scifi show that unfourtunately was cancelled), they never really explained what DRD stood for but basically they were just your typical roaming droids that did odd jobs aboard the ship. I liked the little guys enough to spend the better part of a day working up a wallpaper dedicated to these Doers of Random Deeds. Hope you like :D

I like the cartoony take on the DRD. Def not too far on the detail; it makes it stand out to me. I really miss this show! I'm hoping to put a a Farscape related image myself soon.

Nice one. I don't think I've seen a cuter DRD. I love those lil guys. Those eye stalks and whirring noises are just so expressive. And who can forget the 1812 Overture?

Awsome, Hilairous!

I looked at it for about 5 secconds, the proceeded to laugh my ass off. I have a DRD that I built for the DRD races at Farcon 2005, his eyes light up and move back and forth.... He currently sits atop my computer, I should take a picture and post it.

Oh, and Farscape is back! Again! 10 webisodes, whatever that means, who cares, its Farscape!!!

P.S. DRD = Diagnostic Repair Drone

Glad someone else found it funny lol :D, that's so awesome that you've made a DRD, you should totally post some pics, i'd love to see that and if i had time make one of my own, it was such a great show i had heard about the webisodes, very excited for that, might have to do some more fan art. As for "DRD" i knew that's what it stood for, John had a journal up awhile back on the main site that listed a bunch of other DRD explainations, i just thought Drunken Runaway Dots was the funniest lol. Thanks :D

Love Farscape, I was wondering what happened. I see this episode with Aeren and
Chreiton getting blown to bits and then, nothing.

Yes it's really a shame they canned the series, Crichton and Aeryn get put back together and actually have a baby in the Peacekeeper Wars mini series but that was it, now they're both over on Stargate SG1 but i never really got into that show. Maybe one day it will return.

I used to watch Stargate when I was younger, but then it got really, REALLY long.

I remember catching Stargate when ever I could because they were always changing the air times. I want to find it on DVD so I can watch the whole series properly. You said there was a mini-series, I'll have to check that out.

Any more Farscape fanart in the works... maybe I ought to do some too. Perhaps a trade :plotting:? (no worries if you don’t have time, I’m just thinking out loud :XD:)

Hey a trade or just to see some Farscape fan art from you sounds great, i'm up for some more. And yeah the PeaceKeeper Wars farscape miniseries was pretty good, a decent way to end the show, deffinatly check it out if you get the chance.

Thanks, these were little droids that scooted around in a space ship on a favorite sci fi show of mine, Farscape.

OOOH, I know Farscape. I've seen bits and pieces on space but have never really gotten to watch it. I'll have to keep a look out for it on tv. ^.^ I can't go around not know my droids now can I.

I watched a few eppys of Farscape and I do remember these guys. Your dedication is admirable and so is that kick-ass label of yours. It's all reflected and pimp'n. I want my own freak'n labely thing. Uh, so jealous.

Thanks and yes very disapointed there's no more Farscape, Frelling tv guys. I kinda redesigned the DRD, didn't looks at much reference material so kinda came out all my own but it's still reconisable right. :D
