"My God..." he whispered. "What is that?" "That," April breathed, "is a starship." Perhaps it was the way he said it. With all the awe and respect a human being could utter. Staaarship. George Kirk and Robert April from Diane Carey's Star Trek: Final Frontier You know what we haven't had in a while? Starships. For September's Art Challenge, I thought we could return to what every Trek fan loves doing: drawing/designing starships. These majestic interstellar beauties should be magnificent, graceful, powerful, and instill a sense of awe and wonder. I'd like you to come up with your own unique design, be it a drawing, model (physical or a collection of photons in your computer), painting etc. Or, produce an image of an existing class, or model you've already made, but shown from an unusual, but flattering angle, or set in surroundings or lighting that really show it off. Think of the Enterprise leaving spacedock in The Motion Picture; the launch of the Enterprise-B in Generations; the first appearance of the Vulcan ship Ti'Mur in Ent: "Breaking the Ice"; or the Galaxy bearing down on the Cardassian weapon platforms in DS9: "Tears of the Prophets". The closing date for submitting your entries (in this thread) is by the end of Sunday 30th September. Monthly Art Challenge Guidelines, Rules & Requirements can be found here. Good luck and happy starship doodling!
