    That dish... Omg. It looks handsomely alien. Love it!

    - Why, thank you both! Although, I'd recommend almost anything else on the menu apart from this... :barf::lol:

    - It was intended to be, but I think that Bajoran springwine is a better accompaniment to plastic bath toys... :lol:

    - It certainly smelled otherworldly while I was cooking it :barf2::lol:

    Cauliflower and pickled onions are definitely a combination to be avoided, @Santaman!

    The end of the month is fast approaching, and I've only just had a thought as to what I might do for this month's art challenge:

    This is my very hurried interpretation of the squales (and Aili Lavena) from Christopher L. Bennett's ST:Titan novel, Over a Torrent Sea.
    I didn't have a particular scene in mind when I sketched this out, but the over-excitable orange/red squale seemed to be describing something - the one that got away, perhaps? The squale in the foreground looks like she's saying "Actually, it was only this big..."

    I need to spend some time refining their anatomy (I'm not happy with how the tentacles join their bodies - @Christopher, any pointers you have would be gratefully received), and coming up with a scene in which to use them. Hopefully I'll have something ready for the 31st!

    I am not sure you need to work out scales sizes, after all these could be alien species so there are no parameters...lol

    Thanks, @Atolm! Although, I gave up on the squales idea, as the way I imagine their tentacles are joined to their body doesn't really match the description in Over A Torrent Sea. So, instead, I came up with this v.quick attempt at a Starfleet away team mission to the Arcadian homeworld:
    [​IMG]

    This is the second appearance by Harpo the Humpback whale (he first appeared in this thread here), this time with a dolphin crewmate, as they encounter an Arcadian (whose head is too small/not bulbous enough). And, yes, that is a Z-Ray/Sinker Zoid repurposed as a Starfleet submersible - I don't know if it's clear enough, but there's a type-11 shuttlecraft in place of the Imperial Zoid cockpit.
