I like the doodle of that old geezer from Dragon Ball Z.

The old doodles of Rose and the 10th Doctor seem a bit Banksy if you ask me.

^I don't know whether that is meant to be a compliment or a criticism. Either way, I didn't know who Banksy was at the time. I feel like those are fairly representative of my style, aside from the foray into anime I've never been one to try to replicate another artist's style.

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

I drew both of these almost twenty years ago around the same time that Generations was in theaters. Captain Greene is my fanfic captain of a Galaxy-class starship and a contemporary of Picard, Sisko and Janeway, but many of his details have changed since I drew this picture (most notably that he doesn't die in 2372) and as I slowly refined the characters in my stories and firmed up who they are and where they come from. In my stories he no longer has such a decidedely Shatnerseque appearance or hair.





The "#29 of 31" at the top of Greene's picture is because he was meant to be one of a whole series of pictures I would draw of my fanfic crew, their ship and alien adversaries, but I never drew more than a few before dropping the idea of numbering them like collector/trading cards.

I did kind of like the idea of a late 24th century trading card company that would print cards featuring famous starship commanders, explorers and other luminaries of the era. You know, for the kids of all different Federation species.

Comparing it to Banksy's older wall art is meant to be a compliment, since he's a wildly popular artist.

Please show what you've done, Ghouleddie74.

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

If I can find them. I save a lot of my artwork but finding specific drawings that have been put away somewhere for almost twenty years might be a little difficult. I'll see what I can do and if I find more I'll try to remember to post them in this thread.

Impressive pics, everyone. Thanks for posting this thread, TedShatner.

TSQ, I love the marigold.

Roshi, your doodles are great! I'll bet your students love them.

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

Here's a drawing of the (then-new) Enterprise-B that I made right after seeing Generations and getting excited about the cool starship Enterprise that we'd never seen before (except as a wall sculpture in the observation lounge on the Enterprise-D). I remember I was on a tear with my Trek drawings in the aftermath of the seventh film hitting theaters.

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

Been a long time since I did art, but starting to get back into it. Right now I'm consuming Photoshop tutorials like crazy.

Here's a neat little video I saw yesterday. It's for anyone interested in developing their own drawing style. I found the parts on Manga very good advice. In essence, he's saying to go beyond copying other people's (copied) styles and create your own rules. Then you can develop new styles, too.

It looks like Matt Smith and you can almost instantaneously recognize that it's him. I'd say you have some good chops there.

I'm not entirely pleased with that slightly off kilter drawing (my drawing ability is evolving and improving by the month really) but I'm glad you liked it.

Here is my DeviantArt account.
