Retro Alien Space Babe
The inspiration came from an online post about why the alien unicorn dog featured in the Star Trek episode "The Enemy Within" wasn't getting attention. When I started pondering what an anthro cheesecake verions would be like, it seemed natural to make her a TOS style alien babe, though ultimately, I did add my own tweaks to the whole concept
Big Red: You Oughta Be In Pictures
When Disney finally went ahead with the film, they decided to go in a different direction.

Red gets on the Maid Marian bandwagon with some quick digital colour over lineart. I did tweak the outfit a bit so it incorporates elements of Olivia de Haviland's costume from the 1938 film.
Another part of my childhood has gone.

You're probably going to be seeing lots of these over the next few hours, but Leonard Nimoy passed away today at the age of 83. An actor and director who has done many things over the years, but none have touched so many people as his role as Spock in Star Trek. Perhaps it was a case of a relatively unknown character actor being in the right time, and the character of Spock owed at least as much to the creative team behind the camera as the one man standing in front of it All the same, he was one of the most visible parts of the team of creators who gave up something that told us we could all be a little better, and even manage to inspire a few to greatness.

I've always been a rationalist, and maybe some of that comes from Spock. Obviously, you can't take it to that extreme, but taking the time to stop and think is a good thing, especially in an age when so many seem to regard the use of your rational faculties as an act of disloyalty.

This was his final tweet, and I think there is some wisdom here:

A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP

He will be missed.
