Day 36 – Ambassador Sarek Spotlight – Discovery

Day 36 - Ambassador Sarek Spotlight - Discovery - Star Trek 365 by Lee Sargent 2018

Ambassador Sarek

Whilst I’m away for work I decided to try some pencil scribbles and do a spotlight on one of the characters that has spanned almost all of Star Trek.  Ambassador Sarek of Vulcan, father of Spock.

Now I’ll admit I’m not 100% sold on the Discovery Sarek, I struggle a little to reconcile the two and struggle even more with the additional story that Spock and Sybok had an adopted human sister.  But that set aside I have to give credit where credit is due and that’s the costume designers for Discovery Sarek.  Even though the collar is more Kelvin universe style the patterns of the outfits are very TOS Vulcan.  It’s not something I noticed till I was researching Sarek across the ages and realised that they’d reimagined the Vulcan lines in the clothes.

The dawned on me as I was painting tomorrow’s.  The pattern and material are different but the lines have a very similar feel to them.

Note that this will be available as part of a set of Sarek pencil sketches.
