The Celestial Temple cries golden tears


  As I don't have anything else prepared - well, certainly nothing that's actually finished - you're going to have to put up with some Star Trek stuff.

  And I'm not sorry.

  But don't worry, it's just a couple of VERY quick sketches and a physical cut-n-paste job for the other social media site that I frequent. Remember? I told you about it here. And here.
Anyway, February's Art Challenge is "Pilot", and here is the challenge:  

With the pilot episode of Star Trek Discovery coming (eventually) I thought it might be cool to look back at the first episodes of the Star Trek shows and pick something from your favourite that clearly represents that episode.

Maybe you like the "man-skirts" of Encounter at Farpoint or Number One from The Cage, Jake fishing in the holodeck from The Emissary or Harry being abducted and experimented on in Caretaker... actually that might have been any episode :whistle:

  Ideally, neither of these will be my final entry, but as there're only two more days left in this month, the likelyhood is that I won't get anything else done*.
  Just in case my creations are so appalling that those of you who may be fans of Deep Space Nine can't recognise them, I went with DS9's "Emissary" and the scene where Jadzia Dax as a Tear of the Prophets is ejected from the Celestial Temple/wormhole:

  1. Don't you watch The Avengers? It would give endless scope for your artistic ability - you could make a Mrs Peel catsuit. You're wasted in your day job, dear boy, you really are!

    1. Do you know, I have never seen The Avengers - I am aware of them, of course. Did Mrs Peel ever wear gold?

  2. Total bafflement, dear. I could be on the dark side of the moon...Is it the actual pilot or the seat on which the pilot sits? I hope he has a cushion!

  3. The paper creation is ver interesting. I find it very appealing as a thing in itself. Is it sculptural? The photo makes it look sculptural.

    1. Could well go down the catwalk at one of the fashion weeks.

    2. Ms Scarlet: The "Tear of the Prophets" looks more 3D than it actually is, thanks to the lighting, I think. It's just two or three layers of card.
      I was thinking of making a more sculptural one, but that would have meant hard work!

      Mago: Perhaps I could fashion it into a catsuit for Mrs Peel, as Hound mentioned?

    3. I would not call this a catsuit. In my eyes it is a gown, ready to be modelled by MsScarlet, the Mistress or Pamela Anderson.

    4. Perhaps you're right, Mago. And I can only make one, as can you imagine the catfight if Ms Scarlet and The Very Mistress turn up to the latest Blog opening wearing the same gown?!

    5. A bog opening... I mean blog opening.... well there's an idea! Gowns, and jewels, and awards, and mischievous duplicate envelopes. I must have a grand blog opening!
      You will make two very individual gowns, Mr Devine. Pamela Anderson will not be invited.
      Sx

  4. Interstellar origami asparagus?

    "Damn it Jim, I'm a doctor, not a botanist." Dr McCoy, "The Troubles With Vegetables," Star Trek.

    1. But instead of making one's wee smell funny, it would make one wee gold!

      ::nabs McCoy-ism for the collection::

  5. Both works are creative. And I honestly thought you made an origami piece, too. And that origami looking creation made me also think of the Crystalline Entity from TNG.

    Luv DS9. Along with Voyager, I quite like the more complex, better developed stories and characters.

    1. Ooh! I shall have to find some silver card for a Crystalline Entity version! Thanks, Eros.

  6. I don't understand any of this. Are you speaking Klingon?
