AHHHHH OMG! :DDD It's gorgeous! They all look so much like themselves - but definitely translated into a distinct artistic style, which I adore! Uhura looks particularly gorgeous. *_* I love the look she's giving Kirk (who is so cheeky, eeee). And Spock's epiphany made me giggle out loud! (I hope I didn't wake my roommate.)

Gosh, your colors are so pretty, particularly on their skin. And I really like the random ships-interior-inspired background - fills the space nicely and looks right, but not distracting or overly detailed (something I have trouble with). And the classic looking thought bubble and text box! ♥ It looks like a panel out of a seriously awesome comic - there's no surer way to make me happy. ;)

And you drew my OT3! I am beside myself, here. I love it so much, Mystery Artist - thank you!

[ETA:] I forgot to mention the tiny Ben-Day-esque points of color! God, I love that oldschool comicky stuff. *_*

I am SO HAPPY that you like it!! I currently stalk your journal for tips on and examples of how to make awesome comics and how to, like, have cool style. Both of which you do with no apparent effort. So you basically helped make your own giftart better, neato!

Thank you for such lovely feedback, it just made my yuletide to be creeping on these kind words. You picked out a lot of the stuff I had been aiming for (yay)!

In conclusion--you are darling, and you inspired your own present. Merry yuletide! ...and now happy new year! ♥

oh my gosh, FANTASTIC. The classic comicbook style is dead-on and makes the whole concept that much funnier XD
plus... it's a nice concept all around... ;D
brille
Jan. 5th, 2010 04:05 pm (UTC)
I definitely thought loooong and haard about the concept, mmhmm. :P Glad you enjoyed!

The boys are nice, but I really like Uhura here!
brille
Jan. 5th, 2010 04:06 pm (UTC)
I strongly agee that Uhura's inherent awesomeness (ouch, tonquetwister) should always be apparent. Thanks!

This is really beautiful. I especially love the way you drew the girl. :D

Thank you! I definitely had fun drawing such a kickass lady. :D

I like their expressions, and the likeness is great. I also like the hinted, unfocused background. The classic comic book style works very well.
brille
Jan. 5th, 2010 04:08 pm (UTC)
Oh yes, my 'background,' hee. I am so happy to hear that the comic book style worked--thank you!

Thanks! I definitely beat Spock to the punch on this one. Probably. ...maybe. When did I set this again...?

OMG! I want to read the whole comic now!
brille

Me too!! Unfortunately those two words in a thought bubble are the extent of my dialogue skills...I am nought but a pencil puhser :P

The likenesses of all three are incredible! It is generally harder to find likeness for a beautiful female, but Uhura looks wonderfully like Zoe Saldana here. Gosh, this is wonderful! And I LOVE the way you colored it... very watercolor-y with a nice textured background.
brille
Jan. 5th, 2010 04:12 pm (UTC)
Wow, thank you so much! I definitely have more practice drawing females, and I'm glad it paid off. Uhura and Zoe deserve all the wonderful they can wrangle, definitely!

I am in love with everyone's expressions, though Kirk's smug faaaaaaaaace is especially fantastic! Also: the comic book panel feel of this is particularly inspired, and I love your coloring choices. That background!
brille
Jan. 5th, 2010 04:15 pm (UTC)
I am so pleased that my background is coming off as 'artistic' rather than 'space-architecturally-challenged'! Their expressions were key, so thank you. I do love me some smug Kirk :P

Hee! And the style is very nice.

Great technique, and this seriously made me giggle. XD

Giggles were the ultimate goal. I can rest easy thanks to your comment! Thank you! :D

I, too, would very much like to read that comic book! I would not object at all to seomeone writing that comic book! I would even illustrate it! I just...have questionable writing skills.

The blue light thing is reminiscent of the lensflare extravaganza in the movie for me. :P Thanks for your comment!

Spock has impeccable logic. I approve!

I love the comic panel style. The likenesses are wonderful (Kirk and Uhura's profiles, and the blue light highlights!) and the expressions brilliant. I love Kirk's rather smug amusement, that touch of cool irritation and challenge on Uhura's face, and Spock's moment of "oh, of course".
brille
Jan. 5th, 2010 04:23 pm (UTC)
I usually agree with Spock's logic, and here I was able to make him agree with me. Magic!

Wow, your comment is great--I wanted their expressions to be subtle but still recognizeable, and it's lovely to hear that they came across. Thank you so much!

I am astounded by the likenesses and the gorgeous background, and giggling madly at Spock's lightbulb-over-head face.
brille
Jan. 5th, 2010 04:24 pm (UTC)
Thank you, that's so flattering! Haha Spock...he can be a little slow sometimes. That's what we're here for :P

DER HOLEY GOD! I spit my apple juice out as a laughed at this. FANTASTIC, what a ysterical idea. Oh god.
Ad the art is great, you really captured the characters well, and heh, love the background. Techy, but quick =P

Hahahaha oh no!! Hope your computer was alright! Thanks for your enthusiastic comment, it is happy-making indeed :D

Love the realistic translation of the characters and their features, and the comic book style is great!

Well, they are all such pretty, pretty people that I could do nothing at all to improve them. Thank you!
