Here's something all cute and snuggly (as is pretty much normal for my drawings... ), to offset the starker "In Battle" pic I also posted today. Back when I asked for possible theme songs for Scotty and Orin in my journal, sent me this link, saying it reminded her a little bit of Orin, mainly just because it was cheerful: www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPOENb… Well, when put in that context, when I first heard the line "I could kiss everybody..." this is what immediately popped into my head! It was a pretty good way to explore Orin's relationships with all the main crewmembers, too, come to think of it. Nobody's actually talking in this pic/comic, but here's what I imagine is going on inside everyone's minds here...
Orin: Hey, that's Ms. Saavik! Unca Scotty tells me she's sort of new here. Ms. Saavik is cool! I want to get to know her better. I'll kiss her to let her know I'm friendly!
Saavik: ...Eep! Oh! ...That is Mr. Scott's adopted child, is it not? The Dinarian? Is this... is this a normal behaviorial pattern of Dinarian children? I shall have to research... that is all right, Child, now, um, let me get back to work....
Orin: Unca Chekkyyyyy! You're always so much fun! Here's a big kiss for you!
Chekov: Teehee! Gotcha! And vhat have you been up to today, little Oreen?
Orin: UNCA SCOTTY!!! You're a big cuddly teddy bear and you always take such good care of me! I wuvs you soooooo muuuuuuuuuch!!
Scotty: Awwww, that's me precious wee lassie! *chuckle* C'mere an' give me a big snuggle!
Orin: Yay, Dr. Bones! He's an old fussybucket, but he's always so sweet. I'm gonna give him a kiss too!
McCoy: *chuckles* Awww. What an affectionate little tyke.
Orin: There's Mr. Sulu. He's a nice guy. He's Unca Chekky's friend and he's sorta cool. I think I'll give him a kiss too, just because.
Sulu: Oh! Haha. Hello there, Orin.
Orin: Auntie 'hura! You're so pretty and sweet and amazing! *giggle* You know, I think my Unca Scotty might have a crush on you. That's okay, 'cause I love you a bunch too!
Uhura: *happy squeal* Meep! Come here, Sugar, and give me a big kiss!
Orin: There's Mr. Spock! Aww, Mr. Spocky-wocky is always so frowny-faced. I'll try to cheer him up!
Spock: ...What is this? I am being kissed! This is most illogical....
Orin: Oooh, I mustn't forget about the captain. He's a nice guy and he works hard and keeps us all safe. Here's a kiss for you too, Cappy Kirk!
Kirk: Wha--? Um... yes, that's very sweet of you, Orin, thank you... now be a nice little girl and run and play with Uncle Scotty, okay? Captain Kirk has a ship to run and he needs to look professional....
Well, anyways. This one took a while, but I had fun with it. Hope ya likes!
Oh, and PS: Congratulations to Lt. Saavik for making her first appearance in my gallery! (I prefer the Robin Curtis [i.e. Search for Spock and Voyage Home] version of her character, for the record, so hopefully my drawing looks more like that one.)
Second of all: Wow, um... I'm not sure where to begin with this, but getting a comment from you just took me back all of... what, twelve years now? It doesn't seem quite THAT long, but... well, long story short, when I was in my mid-teens, I was a huge Treasure Planet fan--I was much too timid to join DA at that point in my life, but I sometimes surfed it as a guest, and I remember seeing your art then. My feelings for Silver were, well, different than yours (I saw him as a paternal figure just as Jim did, and just as I relate to Scotty now), but I still enjoyed a lot of your pictures. I had no idea you were still around here. So, um... nice to meet you, officially!
I just recently became a Trekkie and I've been going through all of Da collecting all the great pieces of the show and films and I just randomly came across yours and just totally fell for the squishy fluffiness you put into every character.
I hope my last comment didn't sound like I was criticizing your Silver x Marina art in any way, by the way--it's very beautiful and sweet! I just meant it was of a different nature than mine at the time, which wasn't romantic. I actually had a character of my own who was like a daughter to Silver... her name was Adri. Now I almost want to find all my old drawings again... they're in school notebooks up in the attic, mostly....
Anyways, thank you again, for the kind comments and for the little trip down memory lane both!
I totally agree about how well you capture all of them in your cartoon style <3
Love Saavik and Spock's faces hehehe~ Cheering up the vulcans <3 Spocky Wocky XD
But I can't believe how much like themselves you get them look though you use "comic-style" in your drawings! That's wonderful.
Everyone's expressions are cool.
So cute! :3
Heehee, thank you, Inky! It's nice to hear from you again! Your funny comments always make me grin.
*Orin hops up and kisses Luna too*
Pooor Spock lols!
