I was actually surprised how much I enjoyed doing this one which is on face value a pretty straightforward piece. But the costume of the dude who threw the ninja star at Todd has a surprisingly satisfying to draw costume.
Also, I kind of feel that Todd is starting to feel all the deaths bleed through the multiverse and so we’re seeing a little attitude from him in this one.
It is with great regret and sorrow that I must inform you of the death of your son. Ensign Todd was killed performing his duty in a landing party on the planet Argus X.
I won’t lie to you, his death was pretty weird, even for Starfleet. He was killed by a vampiric cloud.
Yeah, I know. Doesn’t sound like a thing but you would be surprised how many of these types of encounters we have. Salt vampires, cloud vampires, the spirit of Jack the Ripper… I could go on but you wouldn’t believe half of this stuff and frankly I expect it provides you with little comfort.
Fortunately, many other personnel from our sciences and command divisions were not killed by the dikironium cloud so there should be some comfort in that.
It will definitely be the only extra Red Shirt piece, I just couldn’t decide which one I wanted to feature in the main collection and I went with more traditional though this one is definitely more striking 🙂
LOL I’m posting this as the Game of Thrones finale is on so pretty much no one will see it.
You know what the sad thing here is? Poor Ensign Todd didn’t even break that silicon ball, it was like that when he got there.
It’s an exciting day today because I’m releasing the bonus piece for pre-orders of the Red Shirt Collection later today. It’s an alternative take on this theme and I’ll release it later today when everyone is watching the Game of Thrones finale LOL.
You know what, to heck with this whole security stuff I’ve already nearly been killed being shoved off a cliff, in the transporter, nearly vaporised twice! I’m going to transfer to engineering and just keep my head down and not get into so many dangerous situations.
Oh hi Dr Daystrom, I’ve got this requisition form for you to sign for…
There’s very little funny about a broken neck which is what I discovered as I put this together. Despite the extremely garish outfit of the Klingon operative who performed the neck snapping, it’s kind of unsettling.
Ensign Todd grabs himself a quick bite to eat after an early morning shift. A nice fresh lettuce, tomato and cheese sandwich and a piping hot cup of coffee. He remembers that he really needs to send his folks a letter about all the amazing and crazy things he’s seeing on the Enterprise.
Unlike bottles of red wine, red shirted Ensigns don’t fair too well at being aged.
Okay we’re four days in and I have to say that I’m having a hell of a lot of fun and I’m drawing plenty of things that I had no idea I’d be drawing and I’m just plain loving it.
Let me assure you, getting older is no fun at all and whilst I’m still relatively young I have felt a little ageism in my current job search. So I know how poor Ensign Todd feels as he feels like he’s waiting forever in the sickbay waiting room until he shuffles off this mortal coil.
