As much as I love the Star Trek drawings, it’s a great personal joy to be drawing other characters and since I’m watching Stargate SG1 at the moment (completely by accident I’ve just randomly started rewatching SG1) this is a double pleasure.
I don’t feel compelled to watch the SG1 episodes as closely since there are so many of them and so it means I can pop it on in the background. That isn’t to say I don’t get caught up in them. 😉
Now before everyone freaks out that this isn’t the uniform she was wearing in the episode. This is NOT a canon illustration. I decided to put Jadzia in the science uniform and give her the proper rank braids and finally kept her normal hair.
I was briefly tempted to hold the Star Trek related A5 Character Commission pieces over to include in the Star Trek 365 but I realised that I don’t really have all that many left to go before end of the year so I might want to hang on to them.
It’s too bad Enterprise didn’t go for more seasons as it would have been nice to see additional NX ships out there and the beginning of the fleet.
I will admit I’ve never been much of a Quantum Leap viewer, I’ve seen the odd episode here and there but not enough to classify myself a fan or anything. But it was nice kicking these off with a familiar face (which I had to spend some time perfecting).
Yeah it was a fair stretch of time between this and the last The Orville episode poster.
I had this image designed for ages but something wasn’t quite right until I realised that I needed to put Rudolph in the middle.
I think I’m getting better at capturing the essence of each of the characters as well which can be a challenge when you’re working in such a simplistic manner.
I’ll also admit to having continued watching episodes without finishing this piece so I’ll probably have to go back and rewatch them again (oh what a burden LOL).
I think this episode was bold, I understand it copped a bit of criticism for being a clumsy approach to the material but I like the idea that the show is trying to stimulate some thought around stuff and it’s a great episode to grab a coffee with a fellow Orville fan and discuss the issues raised.
Anyone who’s been following me for a while knows that before Star Trek stuff I used to draw a LOT of zombies. As the illustrator and author of The Gentleman’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse I drew well dressed folks dispatching the undead for a couple of years.
Eventually, there’s only so much blood and gore and weapon wielding hipsters you can pump out and I retired from the apocalypse etiquette business.
So my goal with this series is to just pick a character from each episode to feature on the sketch cards so that eventually I should have covered off all the main characters as well as the majority of guests and recurring.
Even though this is technically the first episode and everyone was being introduced something about Talia’s arrival grabbed me.
