I’m making my way through the backlog of Star Trek commission pieces and I always love a good Year of Hell request. I think Year of Hell is probably one of the most imaginative ways to do an “it was all a dream” episodes and in the end, I wasn’t disappointed that it would leave no lasting impact on the show. It was a pretty grim what-if but it gave them a chance to do some really interesting things.
I had to reframe this scene for my particular style but I think it came up really well. Sometimes I get requests to do a Star Trek colouring book so I grabbed the linework so you can download it and colour it yourself if you’d like (post a link if you do!)
I was given free reign on this commission piece the only stipulation was that it had to feature Captain Janeway, Seven of Nine and B’Elanna Torres. So I thought it might be fine seeing them working on an alien contraption that they have no idea on what it does.
I really like how it came out actually, I’m starting to enjoy putting the crews into imagined environments rather than simply capturing established scenes. These are the really fun ones to do. The only thing is that B’Elanna’s complexion is a little too dark and that was a pigment that worked well on cardboard but seemed to go too dark on paper. It’s a minor thing though and I’m going to suggest her Klingon side is shining through with frustration 😉 .
