    I was doing another Excelsior MerMay sketch (which didn't come out any better than the first one up thread) and wondered if I could turn it into a starship assignment patch for this month's art challenge (Signs and Symbols). I had a look on Memory Alpha for Excelsior-class starships with aquatic-themed names, and there's only really the "maybe Excelsior" Atlantis - which is good enough for me!
    However, while I was at it I remembered the Miranda-class Nautilus, and thought that the shape of the Miranda lends itself well to an actual nautilus cephalopod, so of course I did a sketch of that too:

    I'm going to colour this in and use it as a back-up in case I can't get to grips with an Excelsior merman [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Oof! Quick and dirty colouring (I'll put the ship name and registry in the ring at some point).

    I'll take my time with Atlantis, the Excelsior merman, as poor Nautilus isn't even fit to be an emergency backup.
