Spock - The Pain of Loss by Araen Spock - The Pain of Loss by Araen
I've desired for a Spock portrait long ago, and now the time has come. This is the first occasion when I use a tool other than plain graphite pencils. I've never tried color drawing before at all. I was afraid of it, but this portrait turned out better than I thought.

High quality print is available here: [link]
-----
Tools:
Pastel chalks (from LIDL :)), Charcoal pencil (Derwent) on GREEN paper. Why? Spock's blood is green, and it seemed a good idea to try out how'd green blood seen through the caucasian skin.
-----
Scene:
Captain Kirk disappears while trying to rescue the USS Defiant. Spock must accept the fact that his friend is no longer alive.
Episode 3x09, The Tholian Web

Everything about this piece is spot-on and it's by far one of the best of Spock that I've ever seen. You've captured the expression on his face and the hidden emotion in his eyes perfectly, and your shading and colouring is done with a serious amount of skill, if I had to find any fault with this I'd have to say you could've made the top of the drawing a bit lighter so it would be easier to see the top of Spock's head, but that really is nothing and doesn't change the impact this drawing has on me, you have an amazingi gift and this is absolutly stunning, congratulations!

This is so so beautiful~ That pain, so deep, that he makes efforts to hide but that however shows in his eyes, in his clenched jaw.
It's so Spock. I love the colouring. These effects on the spacesuit.
It so much looks like a painting, it's amazing~

Very well done--and perhaps the makeup artists should've taken a cue from this in portraying the green-blooded species on the various Trek series.

I have the same problem with Spock's skin. He should have been much more green than they make him up :) Plus if he has green blood, his mouth, palate, nail bed etc. should have been green shaded too. But I'm afraid in this case he hasn't been sex symbol :)
