Gay Ellis UFO Vector by AngstromAlliance Gay Ellis UFO Vector by AngstromAlliance
This one's for the Gerry Anderson fans!

The captivating Gabrielle Drake as Gay Ellis in UFO was the stuff of many a young man's fantasy, and this particular image of her enjoying the companionship of a big shiny yellow helmet has always been a winner with me.

For those who are interested in the technical details of this illustration-rather-than-trying-to-be-uber-realistic rendering, it's an Illustrator CS5 vector illustration comprising of mesh and Wacom-assisted line work.

I have been winged away to my youth, which was beginning to look very hazy, following the progress of years but with this piece of work I'm right back there. Nicely done mate

You're very kin KC. My intention was to evoke that feeling of nostalgia that leaves you warm and fuzzy. Jumpers for goalposts... knuckles bleeding from badly aimed conkers (buckeyes to my American friends)... and something by Gerry Anderson on TV to put the world to rights.

Halcyon days :D

Gigantic fan of U.F.O so was absolutely astonished to see some fan art on it, and bloody fantastic fan art at that. Got me thinking I should do some Space 1999 stuff. Lovely work, really superb!

Thanks Frank, I don't know if you ever got UFO in the states, but the lovely Lt. Ellis was the stff of many a young man's dreams. Thanks to vectoring, I finally felt I had the tools to create an image in homage to her that would do her credit. The purple hair was part of her uniform - strange, but nice :D

No, I've never heard of the UFO series. I bet she was. Vectoring does open up possibilities to create create many different things from our past, you did a fine job paying homage. Lt. Ellis would be proud.

Thank you Sir! Can we expect some blasts from your past to be appearing soon?

I was originally trying to source a decent image of Erin Gray in her spandex Wilma Deering costume from Buck Rogers, but couldn't find anything suitable. I had a poster of her on my bedroom door as a teenager, but that has, alas, long since disappeared :(

I don't know what we'll be seeing from my past, I haven't even started a new vector yet. I feel like Michael Jackson after making the "Thriller" album, I don't know what to create at the moment.

With the names from some of these shows you're mentioning, I just realized you're not from the US. I never looked at your country, it never mattered to me because it seem like I've known you for a while, lol. In my youth, sports was my passion and people on DA don't care too much about that. Hopefully, I'll figure out something though.

I always assume everyone can just tell I'm English, though foreigners all think I'm Australian when I speak... I don't know why.

The lack of sporting interest here amazed me, too. I hadn't looked much until I came to post the Hines Ward vector and could hardly find any groups to send it to. I thought the NFL would be huge, but it seems most folk prefer My Little Pony??????????? (what is that all about?).

Finding images worthy of spending the hours it takes to do a decent rendering of is always difficult. I contacted a DA photographer about an image he'd posted here and he very kindly sent me a high-res version to work on, so that's what I'm meshing away on at the moment.

Where you go after the incredible L.I.M.E. I just don't know, perhaps you need a break from glamour until your head clears and you've answered all the fan mail :D:D:D

Thank you Lon. She certainly was gorgeous, with a porcelain skin, a beautiful figure and almost doll-like features. I could never find a decent sized version of this image - so Decided I draw one myself!
