Outsiders - Spock by CravenLunatic Outsiders - Spock by CravenLunatic
I've decided to do a series of portraits based on characters from four of the six Star Trek series (excluding The Animated Series and Enterprise). I'm calling this series The Outsiders. The characters are those that represent the strange, foreign, alien, and yet, in their own ways, fully embody humanity.

This series not only affords me the opportunity to draw portraits of some of my favorite Star Trek characters, it also serves as my own personal little tribute to Gene Roddenberry and Majel Barrett, whose creations have influenced my life so much. May they float in peace.

To kick off this series, Spock, the original outsider. Not only because he is a Vulcan among a crew of mostly humans, but he isn't even entirely accepted by his own people, since he is half human. His depth and inner conflicts make him alien, and at the same time, they make him human.

I've never drawn Spock before, but I like how this turned out. It's Leonard Nimoy, of course, because as awesomely as Zachary Quinto portrayed the character, Leonard Nimoy will always be Spock in my mind.

Star Trek and Spock are (c) Gene Roddenberry

AAH. LOVELY as always.

Nimoy will always be Spock.

Quinto did a great job too, of course.

I still love your drawing and shading.

Yes he will. I don't want to write off Quinto, but there's not much competing with Nimoy.
