Mövenpick Moment - art by Phil Moy - colored by Phil Moyer
This image, showing Imra Ardeen and Kozue Kaoru having a drink and
chatting at the Marché Mövenpick at BCE Place in Toronto on the
afternoon before the Art of Noise's last (ever?) Sneaky Dee's show,
was commissioned at AnimeCentral 2002 by the intrepid Pearson "Doc" Mui from none
other than Phil Moy - who ought to know how to draw Imra, since the
design we used for her in UF was created by his brother Jeff,
and they both drew her and her fellow Legionnaires for a living! It
was then colored by our very own Special Guest for Life. Let's stop
for a second and get that straight: Pearson Mui (pronounced "moy",
just to make things as confusing as possible) commissioned it, Phil
Moy drew it, and Phil Moyer colored it. Hmm. You never see them all
in the same place...
... except now you do! Here they are at Anime Central 2010:
as Doc described them in his email, "the commission firm of Moy, Mui,
Moyer, and Moy"!
Poolside - art and coloring by Kacey Maltzman
Doc commissioned this one
too, as a gift for your aging editor's 29th birthday, from a West Coast artist
by the name of Kacey
Maltzman. How he makes these connections I don't know, but I
quite like the result. Judging by the look on Utena's face, I'd
guess she was asleep a second ago. She should be more careful - with
her fair skin, she's more at risk than most for a bad sunburn if she
keeps that up. :)
Wash Day -
art and coloring by Kacey Maltzman
Another Doc holiday gift, this one for Christmas 2002. Your editor
takes no credit nor blame for the composition. :) I suppose
it is a practical approach - after all, there's no point in
getting good clothes all soapy, it just makes more laundry to do later
on. I especially like, though, the look on her face.
Ambush - art by
Fred Perry - color by Phil Moyer
This piece was commissioned by Phil Moyer at Otakon 2002.
Here we see Janice Barlow, former WPI and DSM Resident Advisor and IPO CID
reservist, and IPO Jedi Knight Anne Springsteen (star of The Vastru Encounter)
getting ready to ruin a Pfhor strike force's day.
A Strange Kind of Courtship -
art by Fred Perry - color by Phil Moyer
Doc brought this one back from Katsucon 2003; it shows Sumire Kanzaki
as of Christmas in Sendai, an unwritten Symphony No. 3
movement which puts the gang on Ishiyama for Christmas 2406. You
can't see him, but that's Gryphon she's dueling. She does that every
time he's staying at least one night on Ishiyama; in her strange
private world, it's a form of foreplay. :)
Bread - art by Denise Jones - color by Phil Moyer
Another catch by the intrepid Doc. This one's from Anime Central
2003, courtesy of the lovely and talented Ms. Jones, who has done
official art for the Living Room Games version of Earthdawn
and, as such, ought to know how to draw a t'skrang. :) Here we see our favorite pirate captain, Elisabeth R'tas
Shustal, receiving a complaint about the food service aboard her
command, the Kuratai, from security chief T'skaia
Vorokoshiga'ar Ixtixtaaqitl't'chl'Vraihelt Ishkarat. "Yes, Sky, I
know the bread is stale. We're getting a new shipment of flour
tomorrow. C'mon. I haven't even had my morning coffee yet."
Sectional - art by Jeff Moy - color by Phil Moyer
Doc brought this one back from Anime Reactor 2003. It's
by Jeff Moy, brother of Phil Moy, who drew A Mövenpick Moment above.
Here we see the intrepid Kozue Kaoru thinking a thought which has
crossed the mind of many a pilot before her: "Where the hell am I?
This doesn't look like Mos Espa... "
If, for some peculiar reason, you want the black and white version
instead, here it is.
Fuu Hououji - Art by Jeff Moy -
color by Phil Moyer
Another Moy commission wrangled by Doc last year and
colored by Phil. I'm not actually sure whether Doc intended for this
to be the Symphony version of the Knight of the Storm, but I'm
proceeding under the assumption that he did, and anyway, it's Fuu,
what's not to love?
Out of Bed, Sleepyhead -
Art by Denise Jones - Color by Phil Moyer
Now in color! Official EPU commission hound Pearson "Doc" Mui scored this at Anime
Central 2004, making it the second ACen in a row that we've acquired a
contribution from Denise. The subject matter should be pretty well
self-explanatory; as you can see, Kaitlyn isn't a morning person.
version also available.
Uum'y R'yuu-z'ky - Art by Jeff Moy
Another Wizard World, another Jeff Moy commission hunted
down by Doc - this one's the UF version of Magic Knight Umi
Ryuuzaki, as seen in Knights of the Tenth World.
The Way of
the Warrior - Art by John Staton - color by Phil Moyer
Phil's been working on this one for a while, and it's
another one of those images where the coloring was important enough to
make me hold the image until it was done. (For those of you keeping
score at home, this commission was in fact not wrangled by Doc,
but rather by Phil himself.)
This illustration also formed the basis for the cover of Rogue Squadron #1 in Wakaba's comics collection.
Shidou - Art by Phil Moy - color by Phil Moyer
Now in color! Another commission brought back by Doc Mui from Anime Reactor 2004
(the other is "Codename:
Dynamo" over on the Warriors of the Outer
Rim page), this one's by Phil Moy and completes the set of
Moy-brothers Rune Knights illustrations.
Also available in black and
Lensman - Art by Jeff Moy - color by Phil Moyer
It's Dave Menard's redesign of Wakaba, as seen in Hard-Traveling Heroes, by Jeff
Moy. Brought to you by Doc.
Also available in black and
and Chip Mui - Art by Denise Jones
Just like the title says; a pic of Fuu Hououji and
Charles "Chip" Mui, procured at a recent con by Chip's meta-uncle
Pearson "Doc" Mui.
Belle - Art by Jeff Moy - color by Phil Moyer
Juri's a morning person - it's one of the few things about
her that consistently annoys Kaitlyn.
The Burdens of
Command - Art by Phil Moy - color by Phil Moyer
As far as Utena Tenjou is concerned, the main downside of being the
captain is all the paperwork - even if you're not actually using much
paper for it.
B&W version is here.
Paragon and Renegade -
Art by Phil Moy - color and graphics by Phil Moyer
Lo, though Commander Virginia Shepard and Richard
B. Riddick walk through the valley of the Shadow of Death, they shall
fear no evil... because they're the meanest sonsofbitches in the
valley. Also available without
text, in original pencil
form, and as as a lovely
postcard from the field. Scouted, as ever, by the intrepid Doc Mui.
The Doctor Is In - Art
by Phil Moy
New! Commander Anthy R. Tenjou MD FRS IPSFR, ship's surgeon,
IPS Valiant (NCC-06041). High Priestess of the Cephirean Free
and Beneficent Church of the World-Engineer; Duelist of the Order of
the Rose; recognized authority on battlefield medicine;
pâtissière; paranormal investigator. Quite possibly the
only genuine witch doctor serving in any major 25th-century space
navy. Just relax. Everything's going to be fine.
