    Looks great. Reminds me to look for my sketches of some of the characters I did up and was going to scan and color them on the computer. Did one of Picard too myself.

    Good work. I've always wondered though, why so many artists have trouble getting TOS Kirk right. Is it Shatner's lack of distinctive features?

    I'm not sure possibly if I was to look at shatner I'd say it's his eyes that would distinguish his look and I imagine quite a few people have trouble drawing his mouth. I'll have to draw him see if I have same issue.

    Decided to have a crack at Kirk/Shatner, he is diffecult to draw but i think i managed it in the end. This one took me a little longer. Still not 100% happy with it haha.

    Looks to me like a halfway point between Shatner and Pine.

    For both of these, your line quality is great and I really like your overall cartooning style, but you really have to work on your sense of symmetry.

    But human faces are usually not symmetrical. There was once a photographic study taking full front, evenly lit portraits of non-celebrity subjects. The faces were divided down the middle. Each half was joined to a mirror image of itself. Some would recognizably be the subject, but the other mirrored half was like a Jekyll/Hyde thing.

    You've missed the point entirely. Real life asymmetries are pretty subtle. You usually won't find a person whose eyes are not essentially on the same level. The gross anatomy is pretty symmetrical but the details are where the variance is. Mostly in ears and the angle of the nose... but it's all usually subtle and when it isn't, it's really noticeable.
