Gaius Baltar and Six by jasonpal Gaius Baltar and Six by jasonpal
Baltar; what a great character. James Callus plays him as a real weenie, yet we cheer him on even as we cringe. Especially those few times he redeems himself. I guess we recognize Baltar's humanity, failings and all, in ourselves. Funny, but the only other character that I can think of that achieves this, is Homer Simpson.

I really agree with this sentence about Baltar and Homer. I have never thought about this, but it seems to be obvious. As much as I hated Baltar through the entire series, something was telling me that I don't want him to simply die for his deeds. Baltar is our survival instincts. He is selfish, he just wants to live but, if you think of it - he is not a bad person. Just a selfish guy, that you may actually like. The same with Homer. Jeez, crazy, but I like it. :)

Gorgeousness. The drawings are spot on; I like the light touch and I think you are spot on about Gaius Baltar. I love it when he does his 'Yorkshire' accent - it cracks me up. :D

Wow, Six looks great and you totally got Gaius. I just think it looks a bit weird how Gaius' portrait is so tiny... At first, I thought that Six was growing a Gaius out of her shoulder. I hope that's just me!
