30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Twenty-eight: Hyper-acceleration

Whilst Ensign Todd died all the rest of the crew could hear was a buzzing noise…

I admit that I had to watch this episode and the episode related to tomorrow’s to refresh myself on these deaths and for some reason I had convinced myself that neither episode was very good.

They were both quite enjoyable to watch and I have no idea why I had that misconception.

Showing Todd succumbing to the ravages of hyper-acceleration presented a challenge but I think it came out not too bad.

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Twenty-seven: strangled

As I mentioned over on Twitter I got very excited about there being a character with the same first name as me which doesn’t happen all that often (even Lee Adama is a Leland).  And of course in the prime timeline poor Lee Kelso was strangled by Gary Mitchell.

But we’re in the Ensign Todd multiverse where he accompanied Lee to help rig the base to explode and foolishly he wore the brand new red tunics that came in and became an easy target of Mitchell.

There’s something odd in the barn…

There’s something odd in the barn.

So I launched the Weekly Creative Prompt on Monday and it’s was exciting and a little disappointing. Exciting because people actually want to do it which is so cool and a little disappointing because I think a lot of the emails hit spam folders or weren’t delivered at all due to the unfortunate timing of a Google server outage.

But hey that’s all good because I’ve had four or five people sharing their work which has been really exciting to see!

The above is of course my contribution for this week which was:

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Twenty-six: Galactic Barrier

Todd picked up the new red tunic and the Enterprise crossed over into the galactic barrier. Todd’s head exploded.

Some people have begun to point out that Ensign Todd wasn’t in certain episodes and it wasn’t him who was killed in whatever the theme was on the day.

Yes.

Ensign Todd was in none of those episodes and he lives in his own 30 time lines which are all loosely connected to the events in the prime timeline.

Sometimes Todd will appear with rank braids and then without – Ensign Todd is a concept more than a canonical entity that conforms to any strict rules.

I hope that helps 🙂

Ariel, Elsa, Merida and Rapunzel

Drawing Disney characters is a challenge because I think part of makes them Disney is the style in which they’re done.

That said I enjoyed stepping into their world for a brief appearance LOL.

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Twenty-four: Sympathetic Magic

Look of all the red shirt deaths this is probably the most obscure, so much so that I had to look it up myself.

Sympathetic magic is totally a thing but for our purposes go check out the Memory Alpha article on Sympathetic Magic.

I’m happy because I got to draw a cat doing what I imagine cats do, obviously Sylvia is about to make something in Todd go pop using her mind.

I’ve seen the first ten cards and have just ordered the next batch they are looking really cool!

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Twenty-three: Crushed by a boulder

So before anyone mentions it yes the Taureans are the wrong scale but I don’t care because I love their high five so much.

I’m always loath to choose a favourite when I’m doing these but of course some entertain me more than others when I’m painting them or rolling them around my head and I have to say this one is a legitimate contender.

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Twenty-Two: Ejected in Ion Pod

Blue shirt inside ship: Hey look it’s Todd, hey Todd *waves enthusiastically*

Let me just say that the Ion Pod makes little to no sense whatsoever and was a poorly thought out plot device. Yes you can spend years theorising and creating plausibility. I can probably stretch it and explain why it must be ejected instead of retracted but almost all explanation is going to be a design flaw.

I also added a window on the pod, I guess it “could” have had one and a sensor dish because it’s my implausible ion pod and I’ll add stuff if I wanna!!!

30 Days of Red Shirts – Day Twenty-One: Poisoned milk

Let that be a lesson for you.

Don’t steal other people’s milk or cube food because it’s not nice and you never know when the daughter of a genocidal criminal has poisoned it.

The is most certainly not the best timeline for Todd.
