if a luddite like myself can do things in it, then anyone can
As I may have mentioned before, I love Star Trek III - it's my favourite Trek film - and there's very little that I would change about it (minor cosmetic stuff, mostly). However, some things could have been expanded upon, or maybe featured in their own little spin-off Short Trek? So, here's a poster featuring those characters, scenes, and props that I enjoy the most.
As I write this, I realise that I should have titled it "Star Trek IIIa". Or, "Star Trek III-A", perhaps? Ah well, I've got time for tweaking before the deadline of this month's art challenge is up
[ @Michael, I tried adding some highlights as you suggested, but kept messing it up so left it as is. And, @gazomg, I couldn't let go of the filter thingy as it covers so many sins (Although, I might make the finished poster a bit smaller as then the effect won't be so noticeable) ]
So, I debigulated the image and tweaked the credits (amongst one or two other things), and decided upon a title: Star Trek III-B!
(Because IIIa looked too much like Ilia [and we all know she didn't make it past TMP, poor thing], and III-A is probably the Directors Cut, or something )
I think this is going to be my entry for the Fan Art Challenge this month. Although, I'm not going to post it in the thread just yet in case I change my mind
I couldn't imagine attempting something like that using only MS Paint. Nicely done, @Cyfa.
Well, sh-*bleep*. You wake up after a heavy night at the crew lounge only to find someone's tattooed your torso with the secret blueprints of the off-limits Rubber Ducky Room. Is it a practical joke? A mysterious game? A Starfleet Intelligence op gone wrong? Only one thing's for certain: You're in BIG trouble if Captain Freeman finds out!
Yep, this is my concept for this month's Art Challenge: Blueprints.
I'm not one for drawing technical stuff (even though I love looking at everyone else's), and this was the perfect excuse to draw one of my favourite background ensigns from Star Trek: Lower Decks : "Andorian ensign 1" (according to Memory Alpha).
Isn't he adorable?!
I'm not sure what I'm going to do for a background scene yet - maybe something featuring Rutherford and Billups?
I told Okuda not to slum around with prison tattoo artists…but noooo.
Now that's a brilliant idea, @Cyfa! Love it!
~ Ha haa!
~ Thank you, Michael. And an appropriate return of the awesome Andorian smiley
I haven't got any further with this yet, but I'm considering using the communal sonic showers for the background scene. However, looking at them, I think the translucency and grid-work may be too complicated for marker pens. I might have to have a rethink.

Well, I had a few goes at replicating the sonic shower area with marker pens, and while the translucent divider worked better than I expected, the gridwork most definitely did not:
I have a new plan, however: The measuring and counting of the gridwork holes inspired me to do the background as a blueprint of the shower area. Easy! (I hope)
Well, here he* is - Adorable Andorian ensign #1 discovering that he's been tattooed with blueprints of the off limits Rubber Ducky Room in Cerritos' lower decks communal sonic shower area:
* Of course, being Andorian, ensign #1 is likely a chan (possibly a thaan), and should be addressed as Cha (if one goes with the Novelverse interpretation of Andorian biology and culture, which I do and Lower Decks seems to if Jennifer's last/family name is anything to go by) **
** Thank you, @Michael
EDIT: I am kicking myself for not including an actual rubber ducky to go next to the shampoo or on the towel! I'll have to make one tomorrow...
Also, I thought of a name for this scene: The Chan With A Rubber Ducky Room Tattoo
The Andorian* with the Rubber Ducky Room Tattoo now comes complete with an actual rubber ducky - and a couple of other delightful bathtime toys: Buddy the Vulcan** and the buff, pretty-boy nurse/med tech!
I haven't decided whether Buddy and Pretty Boy are the culprits, or just admirers? Or both?!
* I've gone for "Andorian" rather than "Chan" as it's better known.
** So named by his apparent fan club on Reddit and tumblr.
I forgot about the sonic shower FX, so I've added some pixellation which vaguely approximates what we saw in LDS: "Kayshon, His Eyes Open", and enhanced the image somewhat (as the photo was taken in rather poor light):
