Day 180 – Skin of Evil redux

Day 180 - Skin of Evil redux

Tasha faces Armus

So Heath and I discussed Skin of Evil the other night and it will feature in an upcoming podcast episode.  One of the things that struck us was how much the episode could have worked if the effects, set and Armus were better.

It’s doubly frustrating to see Andrew Probert’s original concept sketch for Armus and how cool it could have looked.  I get the budget problems and I’m not going to rehash what I say on the podcast (you should totally go listen to it when it comes out).

So I thought I’d expand a little on that original concept (tweaked ever so slightly) and show off Armus as I like to imagine him (with a much creepier voice – think something like David Lynch might find) as well as improve upon the planet.

Original Star Trek 365 illustrations are available to purchase and are posted at approx 8:00 am Brisbane QLD Australia time. Today’s is late so if it’s still available it’ll be there now.

Day 179 - We're a rescue party

We’re a rescue party

This is a special piece for my friend over on Star Trek Minus Context who is a massive supporter of the Star Trek 365 project and an inspiration.  There is not a day that goes by where I don’t see one of this amazingly out of context captions that makes me smile. This piece was a special request that we’ve been working on for a while now to celebrate the effort that is put in to Star Trek Minus Context.

Day 178 - Bride of Chaotica!

Arachnia, Queen of the Spider People

Whilst I’m not the biggest fan of the holodeck episodes I do love the aesthetics of Captain Proton, especially Satan’s Robot and I thought this might be a fun one to do completely in greyscale.  That said I could have always painted in proper colours and just greyscaled it in Photoshop to achieve the authentic effect!
