Description

Here's the unadulterated art for the cover to Star Trek: Seekers #4, which is shipping this week. Even more than #3, I quickly focused on a single composition I wanted to do after reading the story treatment. The image illustrates a space-suited landing party doing an EVA along the hull of a giant, disabled alien ship as they look for ways to enter the craft. It seems that we so rarely get to see the TOS space suits in Trek images, and just about never in book covers, so I though this may help the book stand out from the crowd (time will tell). I also think this is one of the most elegant angles for viewing the Constitution class starships. Overall I was aiming for an image that really emphasized the science fiction of Star Trek and got away from just the standard "ship in space" scene.

Image was created in DAZ Studio, with the aid of Digital Heavens "Cosmic Pack" and composited and painted in Photoshop. Shout outs to Georg Angelakis for his solid Constitution class model, and to Ptrope (ptrope.deviantart.com/) for the modeling support on the space suit helmet (Yer a brick, buddy!).

    The scene is WOW!!!!!!  About the idea of the suits, I am all for it.  Especially scince the way you make it.  You can see the fabric curling up.  And streching in diferrent parts of the same suit.  Real Life.  WOW!  Hope to see more of them in the near future.
