Day 100 – Deep Space Nine is surrounded by Klingons

Day 100 - Deep Space Nine is surrounded by Klingons - star trek 365 by Lee Sargent 2018

The Way of the Warrior

Um wow.  100 days straight and I haven’t missed a day yet.

I would have loved to get the borg piece completed for day 100 but my head cold had other ideas.  So instead I give you DS9 surrounded by the Klingons from The Way of the Warrior in big A3 size.  I was so hesitant to do this one because I’m not a technical illustrator, I don’t draw straight lines or perfect dimensions and I hate painting space.

So I thought for the 100th lets push hard and include every thing that I don’t enjoy doing in one picture and I have to admit it was kinda fun to do.

Plus I knew I had to do DS9 sooner or later and I always loved the scen of it surrounded by the Klingon fleet.

Thank you to everyone who has supported me and the project so far, it’s been a honest to god blast.  Now on to the next 265…

Dr Culber watches Stamets in the spore chamber

Dr Culber spends a lot of time standing next to med beds LOL so it didn’t leave me with a huge amount to pick from (reference photos are few and far between until TrekCore start screencaps).  But this one caught my eye and I wanted the challenge of presenting glass and spores and energy and stuff.

I can now confirm tomorrow will NOT be another Doctor piece, even though the Borg illustration couldn’t be done in time I’ve still got something big planned for tomorrow.

Day 98 – Our Man Bashir

Our Man Bashir

I’m not so taken with broken holodeck episodes personally but I have to say that Our Man Bashir is one of the absolutely most requested episodes I get.  There’s something about Garak and Bashir in tuxedos that captures everyone’s imagination!

To continue on with my Doctor theme during this period of the uncommon cold (which is really starting to drag out – the cold not the drawings) I thought this is a stand out for Bashir.

Day 97 – I thought it best to keep you sedated while the osmotic eel cauterised your wound.

Very nice, very nice. Your myofibres are fusing beautifully.

I love that I know that the osmotic eel was kept in Michael Westmore’s top drawer in his office whilst not in use on set.  I really appreciated Dr Phlox’s holistic approach, merging state of the art science with traditional natural remedies that worked.  It was a great element of Enterprise that took a slight edge off the stuffiness that is sometimes starfleet.

Day 96 – the EMH awaits a repair team

Day 96 - the EMH awaits a repair team - star trek 365 by Lee Sargent 2018

He’s just a little short on patients

Yeah it’s a scene I’d been thinking of doing for a while now and this brief trip into Doctor territory was the perfect time for it.

It’s actually a very dehumanising and insulting manner in which they treat the Doctor which I’m glad is addressed later on in the series.

Now this one tickled me enough that I’ve added it to our Star Trek scribbles t-shirt collection (you can also get coffee cups and stuff too):

You can check him out plus other designs on my Threadless store.

One more like that, and I’m going to lose both these men.

Despite the blasted cough that lingers I’m actually enjoying having this “Doctor” theme running and I’m taking my time with these.  I actually mixed the colours for the sheets and the blue robes myself because I didn’t have the tone I was looking for.

The only thing I’d change here is to bring McCoy’s arm back slightly to show the cuff of the tunic.

I really enjoy Journey to Babel,  I think it’s one of my favouriteuniverse building episodes that should be required viewing for anyone creatively doing anything with Star Trek.

Day 94 – The Dancing Doctor

Dr Crusher teaches Data to dance

I’m in the third or fourth day of this blasted cold and it keeps shifting symptoms on me – I don’t have the sore throat today but now I can’t breathe through my nose but I have an almighty cough at the same time.  So based on my current infirment I decided to switch today’s scribble and go with a medical themed one (and will probably continue until I’m better).

I also realised that I can’t recall any time that I’ve drawn people dancing, not being a dancer myself the movement and flow can escape me so I spent the morning studying the waltz movements with this picture in mind.

I love the episodes that have the crew interacting with each other in social circumstances and I loved the sequence of Dr Crusher teaching Data to dance.

Day 93 – a damn illegal thing

Day 93 - a damn illegal thing - star trek 365 by Lee Sargent 2018

How can you be deaf with ears like that?

I love Star Trek III The Search for Spock, I think it’s possibly my favourite of all the films.  It has so much in it, such a wonderful soundtrack and of course a great villain.  I struggle to understand why some people place it in the “odd number = bad” garbage.

Anyway, I love this whole sequence with poor Dr McCoy struggling with Spock’s katra in his head as he instinctively tries to make his way back to the Genesis planet.  I think if they were doing this today the large ear fellow might’ve been a Ferengi.

 

Day 92 – Magic Carpet Ride

Rock n Roll

It’s kind of awesome that Geordi and Riker got to be part of one of the biggest events in the Federation’s history.  I mean that’s insanely important and there they are making the first human jump to warp speed.

I watched First Contact the other day whilst working on the big Borg 100 piece – I draw all the Borg directly and I like them on in the background for inspiration.  One thing struck me is that there was a Klingon Borg which I thought odd because I didn’t think any drones beamed over, only the Queen for some reason.  I can’t imagine them scurrying through the jefferies tubes.

USS Voyager

I’ve got a bad case of the man-flu right now that I’m currently fighting with every cold fighting remedy I can get my hands on – I’m hoping by tomorrow I should be back in the world of the living but for now all I can muster is this Voyager sketch card.

Not my finest work but then I’m running a pretty high fever and can’t breathe LOL.
