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...
- It was intended to be, but I think that Bajoran springwine is a better accompaniment to plastic bath toys...
- It certainly smelled otherworldly while I was cooking it
Guess we're happy there's no virtual reality smell .. but looks great indeed.
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
I like it!!!
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:
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.
I have an idea for this month's spy-themed art challenge based on some little sketches I did back in May. Except, rather than starship bugs, I thought I'd have a go at intelligence gathering bugs (without such obvious nods to which galactic power they orginate from). I might still do the starship bugs at some point, though...
I was reminded of my sketches after reading this article at io9 featuring Richard Wilkinson's Arthropoda iconicus book/exhibition.
Thank you, @Laura Cynthia Chambers! I'd forgotten about Roy
