Just wonderful.  Love the Struzan influence, intentional or not, but it is definitely its own thing.  And inspiring!  Bravo.  (Mind if I share it on Tumblr?)

Thats a beautiful piece of work, had long did it take and what references did you use?

SteveStanleyArt Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Hi David,

Thank you!The piece was completed back in Dec. of 1995. My original thumbnail drawing book with notes indicates around 30 hours of execution. The majority of time I spent on the piece was noodling it once the colors were shot in with airbrush. The reference came from a ST calendar of the same year the piece was created. All of the images were clean to work from with the exception of the Kirk head. I remember the pose of Shatner was washed out and not easy to see subtle facial details. To compensate, I simply made 3 variant b/w copies at various darkness', which allowed me to find the missing lines, shadows and shapes. I colorized and plugged in the missing information. Too, this was before Photoshop, so I had to rely on my Canon copier. Cavemen rule! 

Thanks for the note!
Steve

Oh, hell yes! This is amazing. Of course the downside is that evey time I see a TOS painting after this, I'll be disapointed. The bar has been set high.
