Well...I found time.

I'm afraid my work does not measure up on the technical side at all to yours (me + drawing hands especially = bad), but I still hope that in some way this will capture the wonderful character you detailed for us.

This is for you, Mr. Thorne!


You kidding? It's AWESOME.

Well done!

Re: Star Trek: TITAN: Animated Series

Thanks.

I do speak the honest truth, though, when it comes to your technical skills. It's very clear you have the superior understanding of anatomy and giving your characters more lifelike poses. Are there any particular materials or techniques you used to get to that point?

Re: Star Trek: TITAN: Animated Series

Honestly?

I'm self taught. My parents got me a copy of Gray's Anatomy when I was a kid but the best help came from HOW TO DRAW COMICS THE MARVEL WAY and lots of drawing. LOTS of drawing of stuff from real life.

And i'm still crap at cars.

My best friend is a fantastic artist and just watching him work taught me a lot (much the same as reading the work of other writers). Osmosis can't be oversold.

And you have to push out of your comfort zone and draw stuff you know you probably can't at first.

And, of course, I'm still crap at cars.

I totally agree. I still have How to Draw the Marvel Way myself. Plus just get out there with a sketch book and draw what you see around you.

It was actually described as a smaller version of the Soverign(Enterprise's) Bridge in Taking Wing.

But As I said this was just my vision of the bridge, but this not the official design.
I like your Titan bridge! The only thing I might change are the non-command station chairs. Maybe a little wider aisle between the side stations and the tactical station horseshoe too. Otherwise, I think that looks nicer than most of the other bridges on the real Star Trek shows!

Did you find that book helped you with other styles in addition to drawing in a comic-book style?

Thanks, guys...MUCH credit given, of course, to Mr. Thorne for fleshing (scaling?) out this adorable Cardassian!

and now I'm blushing.

Actually Dakal kind of snuck up on me. But I agree, he's really a fascinating character.

I'm going to say a LONG time. Don't hold your breath.

Been busy with real life stuff. More art soon. Feel free to add your own.

Yep I bought that as a kid and studied and practiced and studied and practiced....and then abandoned it. I was cleaning out a book shelf Sunday and the kids found an old IBM binder that I had that I took to meetings. Few notes in there but a bazillion drawings. The kids discovered that the old man at one point in his life could draw. Personally I think they are nuts but they have caused me to start picking up the sketch pad again. Oh and I keep buying that book (its still in print buried among all the magna stuff) for kids as a present. Gotta keep growing talent.

Dont feel bad. Hands kill me. I was never able to capture the life in them. Also all of my drawings tend to slant to the left. But what the hell its all about having fun.

Having gone over this thread I have just a few comments. Thanks for doing this. Having read the series I love to see a representation of the characters and I think you have done a great job. In you style for these, while not my cup of tea (I'm an old fart Marv Wolfman, George Perez, John Byrne styles fan), I do recognize the great job you are doing and hope you continue.

Thanks for all that and for joining in in the spirit of this.

This Animated style is quicker and easier for me than others and I really, honestly do think it's time for another Trek Animated series whether it's TITAN or not. Why should those Star Wars guys have all the fun?

I love all those things on your list (and the artists and writers too). I have no illusions that this will amount to anything more than fun but, as Arthur Bach always says, that's the best thing to have.
