That’s not a toy…

As this publishes I’m about to board a plane to go spend the holidays with my wonderful wife.

I hope that you all are spending the holidays with loved ones or in a manner in which you would like to.

I thought it would be fitting to finish up with a Baby Yoda pic that I’ve been meaning to do the second I saw the scene. I am thankful to the makers of The Mandalorian, apart from the wonder that is Baby Yoda they have delivered a high-quality product that has rekindled some of my interest in the Star Wars franchise.

I am just annoyed I have to wait until the 27th to finish this season and worse still wait until November next year for the second season!!!

I’ll talk to you all very soon!

Honor Among Thieves – a #DS9 #StarTrek Scribble

O’Brien, Chester and Bilby about to have some dry cake

I had to rewatch this episode to get a good feel for what scene I’d draw. This is the last piece in a large commission set.

Also probably my last Star Trek oic for the year as I can’t imagine getting too many down as I’m heading down to spend Christmas with my wife who I haven’t seen in five weeks.

Remember I have the 366 Characters from 366 Films project kicking off on January 1st.

A very DS9 #Trekmas – a #StarTrek festive scribble

This is the last Trekmas scribble for the season and these have been a lot of fun to do with a dash of challenge thrown in for good measure.

I realise when I drew Morn that he can naturally look cranky or sad and that wasn’t the intention here but maybe there is a back story of him not being invited to sing because he’s too loud?

The original for this will be available on the Etsy store after 9:00 am Brisbane Australia time.

Miral’s first #Trekmas – a #StarTrek festive scribble

Someone suggested I draw Tom, B’Elanna and Miral which has been with me now for a month or so. Then when I was working out Trekmas pieces I realised that this make a cool Trekmas illustration.

So I did something a little different with structure-wise as I thought it would be a good one to stretch myself a little.

Also, the scanner is having all kinds of trouble with the two different watercolour mixes but you all get the idea 🙂

2020 Daily Drawing Challenge – 366 Characters from 366 Movies.

So I’ve done a couple of Star Trek 365 challenges where I draw a Trek illustration every day of the year and to be honest, I’m not entirely sure I’ve got another in me, for now at least.

I do like the structure of a daily ritual of drawing something though and with 2020 just around the corner, I’ve started planning my year out. 

There is a daily character challenge going around on Twitter and I’m really interested in adapting that for my challenge.

So for 2020, I’m doing the 366 Characters Project – 366 characters from 366 movies, 366 because it is a leap year.

Every day I’m going to post a character illustration from a film or television show.  The rules are:

  • Original illustration posted daily here and shared via various channels but they’ll be posted here daily
  • Each scribble will feature ONE character (defined however I like)
  • Each character can only be drawn once in the project
  • Each movie can only be featured once during the project
  • Reboots are eligible as are non-theatrical releases (ie made by Netflix or direct to DVD etc)
  • I can’t repeat a character even if played by another actor in a reboot. 

So the character might not be my favourite or even the most prominent one but it will be a character that stands out to me for some reason which no doubt I’ll explain on the blog.  

I’m really looking forward to outraging people on a near-daily basis for not choosing their favourite character from whatever film they love dearly LOL.

So that’s the challenge for next year, it’s only a couple of months away so I’m starting to compile the list along with my Patreon backers but I’m reasonably sure I will not run out of films!

Feel free to play along at home! Don’t be shy and let me know you’re taking part as well!

Captain James T Kirk – Character Scribble

The ripped shirt edition.

Next year I’m going to be embarking on a new 366-day challenge which will involve drawing a different character every day. I’ll be posting about the challenge really soon with all the details but I’m really excited.

I wanted to get a feel for the style of scribble so I thought I’d practise on good old “ripped shirt Kirk”.

Merry #Trekmas Number One – a festive #StarTrek scribble

Twitter decided that the Picard Trekmas instalment would feature doggo Number One instead of Riker…

A Data and Spot #Trekmas – a festive #startrek scribble

Being in the Christmas tree is No.

I figure Data would have tried ancient Earth customs especially after they time travelled into the past and I figure Spot would do what cats do.

It’s a very Borg #Trekmas – a festive #StarTrek scribble

It’s a very Borg #Trekmas – a festive #StarTrek scribble by Lee Sargent

Imagine, if you will, the Borg assimilate a small colony celebrating the ancient Earth tradition of Christmas. The yuletide merriment flows throughout the collective.

Infected with happy holidays the Borg Queen doesn’t understand but is compelled to “try a little Christmas spirit”.

I’m pretty certain this is the best she’d be able to muster LOL

It’s a very TOS #Trekmas – a festive #StarTrek scribble

It’s a very TOS #Trekmas – a festive #StarTrek scribble
I weary of the… oh a pressssent!!!

With half of Australia on fire and the heat soaring I just can’t bring myself to draw another snow scene LOL.

As my aircon is reasonably old and even when first installed were placed in the wrong parts of the house to be effective I’m strategically moving from room to room and doing my best to avoid bursting into flames.

So I thought for the TOS one we might visit the unnamed world that fights the Gorn on and appears to be on the warm side and deliver some Christmas cheer instead of a chest full of diamonds and a flying double leg kick.
