It's A Faaaake! Not The Art Of Star Trek - Wild Things

 Well, I didn't use any of those photos from a couple of weeks ago (was it really that long ago?) for August's Art Challenge.  This was mainly because I had to go haring around the countryside after Koromandis and th'Thanticar managed to escape to the woods and then to the chalk beds.  Despite this, somehow I managed to take loads of photos of them (they're so patient) as they plotted their next move.  And it's from those photos that I found one suitable for the art challenge.
 This second batch came out much better than the first lot, so I didn't have to resort to adjusting the contrast and brightness etc.

 But before we get to my challenge image, Koromandis and th'Thanticar are in danger of getting lost in the woods as they search for a way into a different environment:

 Having found their way to the chalk beds, the two Starfleet Occult Operations officers plot their escape, hoping to signal their shuttlecraft using their appropriated crystal ball and divining stick.

 In this image above, the two Occult Operations Officers are so intent on their work that they miss the shuttle back to their ship!
 Below, they take shelter while working out what to do next, unaware that they're being watched... 

Uh, oh.  What's that creature emerging from the black lagoon blue pool?

 So, here is my entry for the August Art Challenge, A Trek on the Wild Side: "Landing Party"...

 … which won!

  As is now traditional, Senator Vreenak insists upon having the last word:


  1. He's going to get cramp if he keeps crouching like that.
    I'll go and read the 2 week old post now :-)

    1. Heh! Yes, I did feel a bit sorry for him. But, maybe, Andorians don't get cramp? Actually, far too late into the process (i.e. a couple of days before the deadline), I thought that I should have made Koromandis and th'Thanticar articulated.

  2. Do you now have to set the September Art Challenge??

    1. Yes! I've chosen a majestic starship theme for September to try and entice more of the Trek BBS artists to take part. So many of them love drawing and modelling starships, but not many take part in the monthly art challenges.

  3. It's alright, you don't need to pretend in this safe space. We all know why you were *really* hanging around in the woods!

    You make my heart sing
    You make everything groovy

    Wild Thing
    The Troggs

    Damn it Jim, I'm a doctor, not a lyricist! Dr McCoy, Star Trek, "The Troubles With Troggs."

    PS: Congrats!

    1. Ha! I was thinking of that song when I was constructing this post.

      And, thank you!

  5. COngratulations for putting Kormorant & Tetris in he wet hole, hope the Troggs will apprecgiate !

    1. Kormorant & Tetris - Brilliant! They should have their own comic.

  6. Congratulations on the winning foto! They're all fantastic! Luv the footprints! Makes the scene look authentic!

    1. Thanks, Eros! I'm glad you noticed the footprints. Although, in the sixth photo down, Koromandis must have done a very strange jumping/hopping walk to get to where she is.


Tickle my fancy, why don't you?
