STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION: DEVIL'S BREW by Jerome-K-Moore STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION: DEVIL'S BREW by Jerome-K-Moore
Comic Book Cover, DC Comics, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION. Pencil, ink, china marker. Guinan was a tough one to render in a comic book style, chiefly because actress/comedian Whoopi Goldberg shaves her eyebrows, thereby negating an important feature of facial expression and definition. I was left to use tonal textures to achieve the look I wanted.
With the Klingons, I attempted to depict nearly every version that had appeared since the first feature film.

Wow, looking at this, it's official: TNG needed more bar fights. Shirt-ripping should not be exclusive to Kirk's era :XD: And is that a splatter of g'agh I see on the ceiling?

And my god, but this image is detailed! Not just the amount of lines, but the shear number of things going on - excellent work!

It was a lot of fun to do this one, and it's always great to see how each detail did not go unappreciated by the Trek fans. I reckon that makes all the hard work a resounding -- Qapla'!!!

With any series of significant length, film or television, there are moments or episodes done strictly for laughs that really defy the established integrity. When done well, it's easily overlooked as "tongue-in-cheek" humor (see: STAR TREK IV: THE VOYAGE HOME). When done poorly, it's reviled as "bad camp" (see: STAR TREK V: THE FINAL FRONTIER).

It's obviously ludicrous that Guinan would have such a formidable weapon concealed behind the Ten Forward Lounge bar, against Starfleet regulations. The idea is to do a "spaghetti Western" gag. Good fun, even though illogical. :)

Really great expression on Guinan there. You certainly acheived that startled look. Though I'm sure she'll be fine she can just knock then all out or catch them in her giant hat if it comes to it! XD

:XD: I was actually thinking of the line that introduced the weapon Guinan is holding: "This is a little souvenir I picked up from Magus III. That was setting number one. Anyone wanna see setting number two?"

You certainly have a talent for movement of the 2D. I have a lot of fun "picking out" your Klingon versions. :+fav:

Thank you! :)

The idea was to simulate frantic activity with a minimum of speed lines, if any (I think I used maybe three. HaHa!).

And yeah, the Klingon variations were geeky fun to include, mainly to amuse myself.

Excellent! Apparently, you're trained in the deadly technique of the Klingon Paper-Cut. MOST effective when followed up with the Lemon-Juice Dowsing Maneuver.

I am impressed. :)

I just made sure all the Klingons drank til drunk, and then had them insult each other's mothers.
