Life news! I’m moving out of chez parents and into my own apartment!

I’m only really sharing this personal tidbit because in packing up my stuff I’ve discovered the many (MANY) fandom-related posters that have been accumulated at various cons. And have been stashed under my bed for months/years. 

this is it, the apocalypse

I keep seeing these videos with people in bathing suits and t-shirts, tank tops. For me personally, when I bring awarerness to a charity, I prefer a more formal setting, so excuse me…

First post in aggeesss! I decided it would make a lot more sense if I used this blog as a more general Star Trek doodles blog than specifically as a TNG comic blog (though I will put more of those up when I get round to scanning them!)

In the meantime, here’s something for the DS9 crowd. I’m very new to DS9, only started watching it for the first time recently and just finished season 1. The characters are great, and I regret missing out on this when I was younger. :D

Mostly this is cardassian (pfft, read: Garak) redesigns, to be more reptillian. I’m not at all the first to do this by a long shot, and actually in this case 100% credit to Spica-tea’s designs for inspiring me. I wanted to go even further in the reptillian direction since ALIENS and also I don’t have the limitations on me that the show had in terms of what they could do.

It might be a bit too much for most people’s tastes? It certainly makes interaction between different species a bit harder. They came out a bit more like birds, and have extremely dexterous talons, the hair on their heads/necks and tail is more like feathers. They probably walk like raptors too, heads bobbing threateningly and looking at people from the side.

I have real trouble keeping proportions when drawing aliens though, so these sketches are a bit all over the place.

The other redesigns are Bajorans as more primate-inspired. Not really based on as much show stuff as reptillian-Cardassians are, but I felt it fit not only for a people who are quite culturally rich, but also made a good contrast with their oppressors.

Bonus Ocampa (larger cranium and smaller stature) and Ktarian (much more goat/unicorn-like) too!

(sorry for the enormously long post)

(Also sorry for the Bashir/Garak shipping there if people don’t like that, I FORGOT I EVEN DREW THAT)

Shajar al-Durr: the Ransom Expert (1220s?-1257)



I’ve been dying to do this entry for a while now. Introducing Shajar-al-Durr, who: was a Muslim sultan that ruled in her own name; stopped the Seventh Crusade dead in its tracks; captured one of the most powerful monarchs in the world; and ransomed him back to his own freakin’ country.
