    Thanks @fireproof78 ! Svjolweir will be pleased to hear that.

    P.S. His little mouth is more interested in fish than eating people from other planets...

    Oh dear, despite not starting work on this month's art challenge until this morning, I thought I'd have plenty of time to finish something unfinished. I didn't reckon on The Invasion of The Time Snatchers (AKA my nieces) not fifteen minutes after I'd sat down to get to work...
    Still, I've managed to pick something from the jumble of years-old sketches below, and have started some colouring in!

    - Yeah, I know, I know... Star Trek is All. My sister's urchin children shouldn't get a look in this close to the deadline of the monthly art challenge! :lol:

    - And that's not even the half of it! I've got two box files full of sketches and drawings and half realised designs going back to the late 90s, and the select few pictured up there came out of the first quarter of one file! I also found a few bits and pieces (the sketch pad in which that nautilus starship features) in one of my old art school folders. The urge to procrastinate and sift through every single scrap of paper in those files and folders was (and still is) almost overwhelming!

    So, I've managed to get something done this morning:

    This is the original sketch from many, many years ago (although, those antlers weren't on the original - I think I added those a couple of years ago along with defining some of the lines, ranks, commbadges etc.)

    And this is a hastily re-sketched and coloured version (some of the names will change for the final version)

    Here's the next stage:

    As you can see, I've changed the name of the ship from Straxus (named after the cool, but evil, axe-wielding Decepticon commander of Polyhex), to Rosecrypt (named after a communications encryption invented by Uhura in the novel The Pandora Principle). The uniforms are redesigns of those 80s-looking civilian/science outfits featured in TNG: "Time's Arrow" and "Realm of Fear".
    As for their lack of humanoid faces: don't worry, I haven't gone all Charlie X on them - I'm just hopeless at faces, so I didn't even attempt them!

    Unless I get distracted, I'm going to have a go at more detailed individual sketches of Ketwek and Misil (from lower left of the December 30th photo), and also the spherical hulled Rosecrypt (lower left of the upper right sheet of paper from the same photo).
