Why this piece is awesome: This beautiful work by Kumagorochan has been out there on tumblr for a while, and I really love it, so it needs to be part of any Star Trek set of recs. I love the perspective, the delicacy of the drawing, and that he 'contains multitudes'.

Why this piece is awesome: possibly the only thing cuter than chibis? characters as their animal versions. These cats are Kirk and Spock, just check out those expressions, and the linked tails made me squee a little with joy. Plus she does a lot with a simplistic style.

Why this piece is awesome: Reboot Mirror-verse! Both Kirk and McCoy are so sexy - Kirk's bare arms and McCoy's shirt riding up to show skin - guh! The expressions on their faces make the scene look more playful than violent, and I can totally buy that dynamic between them.

Why this piece is awesome: It's a lovely and very well done portrait of Spock, with great use of shading and colors. I like the Vulcan script (his name), and the blues and greens that highlight his hair and suggest his green blood - enlarge it to see it best. The artist's other works are well worth a look as well. (also - in the DA gallery, the artist's Mr. Spock cosplay is incredibly cute! And there's a folder called "in progress" which has WIP shots of the Spock portrait - always interesting and for me, mind-bogglingly impressive.)

Why this piece is awesome: Because Steampunk FTW! - and the images are carefully chosen to be just right for each of them - Bones the Victorian doctor, Spock the scientist/inventor, Scotty with his engine, Kirk the dashing military man, and Uhura the telephonist. Very nicely done.

Why this piece is awesome: It's Lt. Uhura on black velvet! If anyone can carry that off it's Uhura, and the lushness does suit her coloring. Very nicely done, and I like her expression a lot.

Artist Website/Gallery: Lairis77 on DA
Why this piece is awesome: Because, time for some more SGA recs! I'm just going to do a few this month, then more in September. It's a lost cause finding SGA art that's new or that's not well known, so I've gone for things not well known to me, anyway, and a few personal faves. Hope they at least have nostalgia-value even if you know SGA art well. This month's theme is AUs. I love crossovers and fusions, and this is a fun manip with various SGA folks shown as Star Trek races.
I'm probably going to get the next bit slightly wrong which will bring the real fans out of the woodwork to correct me! So as far as I can tell:
John's a Bajoran (nose ridge)
Jennifer's an Andorian
Carson's an Earthling? (for want of any other identifying features)
Ronon's a Klingon
Elizabeth's a Trill
Teyla's Orion
Rodney's Cardassian

Why this piece is awesome: More colourful chibis? Basically. This is a different style of chibi, so less an attempt at drawing them as kids but still with the characteristic giant eyes that supposedly nature has taught us to find adorable. (So we feed and shelter our babies, say the evolutionary scientists.) This artist's style has changed somewhat over time, as styles do, but the early, straightforward and bright drawings always make me smile.

See you in a few days with art for the uncanny X-Men!

Why this piece is awesome: I did warn you I lean towards the unashamedly adorable, right? Chibis are, in case anyone needs this information, a manga convention where the subject's head is drawn larger than the approximate 1/8 of the body that would indicate an average-sized adult. This has the effect of making figures look childlike or otherwise cute. In this piece the artist has managed to draw the Star Trek crew looking like toddlers, and it is SO CUTE. There aren't a lot of lines, but expressions and tiny toddler body language are nicely conveyed.

Also, tribbles! Also, bright colours! Because I, too, am a toddler.

If there are Previous Trek Chibis, the artist hasn't posted them here. Just trying to save your time. :)

Why this piece is awesome: Hi! I'm your tour guide for Star Trek XI for the month of January. I love the Kirk+Spock+McCoy triumvirate, and the ladies, and I also love pieces which are pretty or adorable. Which this is. (Pretty, that is.) But I also love stuff that takes something or someone we see in canon all the time, and effectively transforms it. This piece changes the USS Enterprise into an anthropomorphic character - Jim's Silver Lady - without losing any of the lines that are instantly recognisable as the Enterprise.

Why this piece is awesome: It illustrates the differences and similarities between the two Chekovs so well! Old!Chekov with his almost frenetic Monkees-moptop cutesiness and campy Russian caricature, every action overstated in keeping with the show; nu!Chekov kind of dreamy and spun-sugar sweet, thoughtful and contained and authentically Russian. The blotty storybook artwork makes their postures and looks even more effective.

Why this piece is awesome: Uhura is like the BAMFiest of BAMFs, and this picture is a fantastic representation of why that is -- standing so strong and alert in the middle of the whipping solar winds, the quirk of her eyebrow and the lines of her body.
