Dr. Ree sketch

I've been playing around with working up some samples for IDW and immediately the characters of the Titan novels came to mind. So I've been trying to get a handle on some of the characters who've only been seen in the books. Hence, this (admittedly a bit crap) sketch of Titan's Pahkwa-thanh CMO, Dr. Shenti Yisec Eres Ree.

Re: Dr. Ree sketch

Nice...ya know, the style actually reminds me a lot of the way the inside illustrations were done in some of the "young adult" Treklit--especially the first 3 TNG ones like Worf's First Adventure. Brings back good memories, very warm, fuzzy ones.

You didn't happen to be thinking of that, did you?

Re: Dr. Ree sketch

This reminds me of something I thought was being developed a while back by Pocket Books...

An online directory of Trek Lit characters that were accompanied by Color Sketches and some brief background information. Certainly make getting a handle on some of the more alien races aboard the Titan a bit easier to visualize.

Anyone know whatever happened to that?

Thanks for this pic of Dr. Ree.

Re: Dr. Ree sketch

Nice sketch, but it reminds me too much of the Godzilla from the movie with Matthew Broderick. I thought the 3rd book in the series had a pick of Dr Ree? I do have to echo the sentiment that a collection showing what the characters looked like.

I really think we should get visuals of all the characters. It just helps with the imagination. You know?

Re: Dr. Ree sketch

NerysGhemor: I've never actually read the young-adult Trek books, but I'm glad I gave you a nostalgia shot.

Technobuilder: Someone was actually doing an illustrated TrekLit history? Yeah, put me down for a yes vote.

Titan Designer: Compliments much appreciated, Sean, as are everyone else's.

Frontline: I completely see what you're saying... after looking at the Ree photo on that Titan book cover, I see where I went wrong: Ree's snout's a bit too hammer-nosed. Good eye.

I've been working on sketches for other Titan characters, Aili Lavena and Ranul Keru on deck next.

Yeah, a little too much chin compared to the cover image. And you have his claws flat, like long human finger- and toenails (and look like they'd be far too easily pried up if he dug them into his meal) rather than the thicker, sharper claws of a natural predator.

Point agreed with... some things to think about when I do a version 2 of this.

I'm aware, and I'll be referencing that shot in the pic I'm working on, since the goal's more to design her look while wearing the hydration suit.

I'm trying to get used to drawing the Titan characters for some comic pages I'm working on, not so much trying to put my creative stamp on the characters or to deliver anything resembling a "definitive" version. I realize we know what Ree and Lavena look like, I'm just trying to get them down on paper for the sake of the project I'm working on.

Since that picture of Ree is baisically a monitor lizard...I think an artistic interpretation can ad some chin.

Re: Dr. Ree sketch

Sweet stuff. Reminds me of the character art I saw at Trek-RPG.Net

I wish I still had access to my old account as there was some really good stuff I'd archived before Yahoo snuffed my Trekfan1975 account & password.

True, but it's also worth avoiding the "Chin-zilla" look.

Speakling of "avoiding looks", it's be interesting to see Dr. Hulian. How do you keep him from looking too much like Disney's Stitch when his species was expressly based on that character?

Better that than sticking a gecko in a uniform and trying to pass him off as an alien.
