LOL, well...I dunno. Their eyes probably don't blink, or change to fit their moods, the way adorable Tolkar Saratt's do. That's the other part of making eyes pretty.

Beautiful Nerys! I especially like this smallish coat thing with the underlying grey cloth. That looks great and so real 3D like.

Thanks. I'm really glad you liked that.

I know you're very busy right now, but whenever you happen to finish with those things, shoot me a PM and I'll explain to you what is really happening in that drawing.

Would you trust a doctor like this?

Re: "Shaping a Cardassian" - characters

My, my, he has QUITE a grin on his face!!! I love it! If I saw someone smile like that in real life, I'd want to chat with him. You did well with the lines around his mouth, and the shape of his eyes, both of which hint at a smile without even looking at his lips.

His hair almost looks like it was deliberately spiked...did he do it on purpose or did he just get up, take a shower, and then wipe his hair with a towel and let it dry? Either way, I think it's such a fun look!

Re: "Shaping a Cardassian" - characters

I think his hair in a bit curly--rather an anomaly for a Cardassian--and after he combs it, it starts to do what it wants... I can almost hear a sound a spring makes when popping out of an old mattress when this happens

It wouldn't be a problem if his hair were longer but...I think he likes it that way

I also added wrinkles under his ridges. I assumed that this also could be a place where, with age, skin gets deeper lines, as ridges have limited flexibility but still are in place and when a Cardassian face changes its expressions, the skin wrinkles there and with time that leaves signs.

LOL, nice!!!

Even cats have a mutation like that once in awhile (wavy or curly hair), so why not a Cardassian?

It's his trademark!

That makes sense. At least in my universes, what's under the ridges is cartilage, and only that upper part of the eye ridges has any mobility--limited by human standards because of the cartilage, but serving the same purpose as a raised eyebrow.


BTW...what actor do you see as playing Albek?

There's something about dishevelled men for me today

Captain Asu Ronus

While for the drawing I just used random photos of smiles, hair, wrinkles and everything... if I had to choose an actor, it would be David Morse. He's much too tall, but he has a nice face and Albek is supposed to have a nice face too.


David Wenham would make a perfect Ronus (after dying his hair to light brown ).

Hmm... a day of dishevelled characters and men named David

Re: "Shaping a Cardassian" - characters

Nice! I'd forgotten that Ronus had facial hair.

He definitely comes across in that photo as more reserved than Jadzia Dax. Not standoffish, though--I just imagine he is quieter in the way he speaks and moves.

Re: "Shaping a Cardassian" - characters

He is a quiet and very composed person. Definitely not a party animal.

Initially it was supposed to be Ronus to comment Albek's hair, but I couldn't make them meet. If I could, it would be quite..."inappropriate" if Ronus called Ablek 'dishevelled,' wouldn't it?

Re: "Shaping a Cardassian" - characters

"Dishevelled' would definitely be insulting. It would suggest he rolled out of bed and didn't properly get himself ready for the day.

Kind of like the kids, when I was in college, who came to class in their pajamas. I might be one of those kids. (Although I at least bothered to change my pants so nobody would know right away that was my pajama top.)

Maybe he could say Albek's hair is very "unique" or "distinctive"?

Think the pun would translate? How would Albek like that? "Stands/sticks out from the crowd..."
