“It’s always a game of chess with the Romulans.” — Jean-Luc Picard The Romulan Warbird is one of my all time favorite adversary starship designs. It’s so elegant, so threatening–and entirely Romulan. It looks like it’s smiling at you as it’s powering up it’s disruptors. I wanted the background to echo the subterfuge that Romulans are famous for, so I thought about hiding a planet in a nebula. There’s probably a Romulan base on that planet. Or not. You never […]
I’m super excited about this piece, which I plan to be the start of a series of paintings depicting science fiction and fantasy in the suburbs. I know, the suburbs seem kind of… mundane. But that’s what I like about the idea: merging the fantastic with the mundane. It’s also kind of a new style of piece for me–but that’s also what makes it a bit exciting. Okay, back to the piece: velociraptors. Every time I see a flock […]
This piece has been in my head for ages… and I’m really happy I was finally able to get it out on paper. This one’s inspired by the film Aliens. I had the urge to draw some Colonial Marines… and as you can tell by the lighting, they’re in for some bad news shortly. (“How could they cut the power, man?! They’re animals!”) Anyway, I wanted to emphasize a pretty simple color palette on this one, but I used the shoulder […]
Uhura was a character that I always wish received a little more development throughout the original series. I mean, I get that TOS was focused on Kirk, Spock, and McCoy. But a little extra development would have been nice. Even still, Nichelle Nichols did an amazing job in creating the character. I really like the way this piece turned out! If you’d like to purchase prints of this piece, check out my online store.
Okay, as I’ve said before on this site, the Enterprise-D is probably my all-time favorite starship. So it was a lot of fun to illustrate this piece of Star Trek fan art! That’s not to say it was a non-stop fun fest. The lifeboats on the Enterprise-D in particular were kind of tricky… and painstaking. But it was worth getting all that detail right in the end! If you like this piece, don’t be shy! Let me know in the […]
This piece I did entirely for fun, so it’s very much inside my comfort zone. But I wanted to create a “starfleet action-y” piece and also highlight a couple of main characters. Tuvok and Janeway seemed like the logical choice. (Ha.) They’ve always had an easy, loyal, compassionate friendship based on mutual respect. And I tried to capture this in the piece. This piece is available from my store as a print, so if you want this hanging on your […]
The TARDIS is a wonderful spaceship. Well. Space and time ship. You get the idea. Anyway, one of the things I always loved about the TARDIS is that it doesn’t take the Doctor where she wants to go. The TARDIS takes the Doctor where she needs to go. And that’s pretty amazing. This piece definitely depicts the Doctor headed into danger. I tried to create the sense that this is precisely where she needs to be. If you’d like to purchase a […]
I’ve always really enjoyed Doctor Who. There’s something about the romantic vision of space travel it presents that really resonates with me (and I don’t necessarily mean kissy-romance… I guess I mean romance more in the classical sense). Anyway, Donna was always one of my favorite companions, so I thought I’d create a piece that showcases her and David Tennant’s Doctor. (For my money, “Silence in the Library” is one of the all time greatest episodes of Doctor Who). If […]
I’ve always wanted to see more Andorians in the TNG-VOY era of Star Trek. Since not very many of them appeared on screen, I thought I’d draw one! (It’s one of the nice things about being an illustrator.) So, I’m calling this one “An Andorian on an Away Mission.” Try saying that five times fast. 🙂
This art is definitely inspired by Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder style RPG games. I’ve always loved the art in tabletop roleplaying games, and so this piece was a lot of fun. I can just imagine her breaking in through the window and sneaking up on her prey…. You know, like a rogue assassin type.
