 Day 18 – Favourite Non-Aligned Race – 30 Day Star Trek Challenge

The Mugatu and Ensign Ricky

This was really a toss up between the Gorn and the Mugatu.  I’m not sure if the Mugatu is considered a “race” as such but I decided that they would be more fun to draw anyway.  I like the idea of this giant monster of the week kind of creatures which I don’t know if the other series captured quite so well.

So the Mugatu are just fun and probably not as well known to non-Trek fans, certainly no one I know connected the dots between Zoolander’s Mugatu character (Ben Stiller is a massive Star Trek fan).  For a modified gorilla suit it’s surprisingly well put together though I think unicornirilla would have been a superior name for the species.

This was a really fun piece to draw.

This is part of the 30 Day Star Trek Challenge – check out the details here.
