Day 261 – Logic is…

I have a soft spot for Norman, I don’t know why as I’m not overly fond of the episode, it’s okay but a little on the silly side for me.

That said I always wonder why Data would consider himself so unique in the universe when there’s a whole planet of androids as well as the androids from What Little Girls Are Made Of.  

I kind of wonder why Starfleet never spent any time researching any of this considering.

They just feel like episodes that have been conveniently overlooked when developing Data’s story and a throw away line might have been, oh sure we’ve encountered alien androids in the past but none made by humans and not as advanced.

Day 260 – Omnipotent Coffee

I forgot that they’d been together in a book, and then I thought I’d read it but now I’m convinced that I haven’t read it.

Don’t age kids, it’s terrible lol.

I did have thoughts of adding young Charlie Evans in having a babychino but then I can’t imagine him being invited out for coffee by either of these two.

Day 259 – Four Klingons Walk Into a Bar…

An exercise in drawing the distinction between different eras of Klingon, plus I thought it would make a cool image 🙂

I could have included the Kelvin timeline Klingons but I thought four was a nice round number.

I was surprised at how fully fledged the TMP Klingon design was, apart from the makeup the uniforms themselves are pretty much what followed right throughout until Discovery.

It was fun designing a new Klingon for Discovery, I couldn’t find a huge amount of the non lead Klingons so I just did my own thing.

Day 258 – Taking the dog for a walk

I got off on the wrong foot with Enterprise when it first aired, the second episode had them go to a planet that they’d never been to before and the first thing Captain Archer does is release his dog into the environment.

I understand the caveat that they scan for microbes and pathogens etc however we’ve seen how well that works in A Night in Sickbay.

It’s not really so much the danger to Porthos but rather the danger Porthos represents to the indigenous ecosystem.  And whilst that would be the case for any living creature at the very least they’re wearing clothing offering some protection and probably won’t go to the toilet any old place.

I just felt it was a lazy thing to write and illustrative of humanity’s self-absorption.  A really minor thing but it didn’t sit well with me at the time (actually it still doesn’t).

Day 257 – Tears of the Prophets

Curzon was my mentor. You, you were my friend and I am going to miss you.

I’m annoyed because my worthless junk scanner has really butchered this and until I get the good one back there’s nothing I can do about it but cringe when I see anything like this.

Another long overdue commission request.  I have about four or five to go but I’m either going to delay doing them until my scanner is back or not show them and just go back to the sketch cards.

More importantly how much did you hate Gul Dukat in this scene?

Day 256 – Captain Janeway

I did what I knew was right.

It feels weird drawing more women of Star Trek after having finished the set only a week and a bit ago! 

I think this is all of my outstanding sketch card commissions – I’ve got a bunch though still to do for my Patreon backers and some standalone material.

Day 255 – The Borg Queen

You wish to ensure the well-being of your Collective. I can appreciate that.

Whilst I personally believed introducing the Borg Queen weakened the concept of the Borg I have to admit that she is one hell of a character.

She is a lot of fun to draw actually.

This is part of a trio of sketch cards commissioned last year that I’m finally getting out of the way.

Day 254 – Admiral Janeway

A new trio of cards as I clear the deck of last year’s commission pieces.  The old scanner was a bit savage on the colours here which is why I eagerly await my proper one’s return but I’m not dwelling on it.

Day 253 – Gowron, son of M’Rel

Gowron, son of M'Rel

Number one thing when drawing Gowron, the eyes are EVERYTHING.

The third of my commissioned Klingon trio.

I didn’t sign any of these because I didn’t want to add anything extra to them but something I noticed later is that you can make out my thumbprint in his hair which is the ultimate signature!

Day 252 – Worf – son of Mogh

Worf – son of Mogh

This is the second in a little mini set of sketch cards that I was commissioned to do at the end of last year.  I really enjoy drawing the Klingons. 

At some point I’ll have to give a Discovery  Klingon a go but I don’t fancy the details of those outfits LOL.
