Star Trek Art

I maded this.

Kirk, Spock, and McCoy

I was practicing drawing in Illustrator, getting more used to the Pencil tool (which I used to draw all the lines and swathes of color). I think it took me 6 hours? But it could have been more like 8, I didn’t really keep track. I was going pretty fast though. It was drawn over top of two photos of them, and I had to change the lighting on McCoy, and the positioning of his eyes, to match the other two… that’s why he looks a little short on love. I wanted to go for something a bit abstract and smooth but to focus more on rendering them clearly.

    Nice work! I don’t think I’ve ever used the pencil tool in illustrator. I’ll have to fool around with it now…

      Thanks Ruth! Yeah it took a bit of getting used to, but once I practiced with it some, it sped things up a lot more with the tablet. My usual method is to set Bezier points individually, but the pencil is nice since it lets you redraw the line or parts of it over and over again until you get it right.
