City on the Edge of Forever by meilin-mao City on the Edge of Forever by meilin-mao
A3 soft pastels
~ 3 hours

This is my entry for :iconstartrek-club:'s Favorite Star Trek episode contest.
The main rule was: Draw your favorite episode of Trek using all seven colors of the rainbow.

It was difficult to choose only on favorite episode but the City on the Edge of Forever was the first I thought of. It is very well written, I love the drama and the romance. For me, Edith Keeler is the only woman who truly deserved being loved by Kirk. And I like the domesticity between Kirk and Spock.

I had a lot of fun with the colors too ^^
Hope you enjoy !

but I'm not so sure for the contest. TOS is sadly not that popular anymore :(

hmm I dunno it still seems pretty popular to me. Now yes the reboot movies got quite a bit of attention, but I've met quite a few people who watched the reboot first and then decided to watch TOS and actually liked TOS better. Maybe Star Trek in general isn't as popular as it was, but I still think TOS is the most liked series. :D

Beautiful colors and shading. I recognized Spock and Edith easily, but didn't recognize Kirk except by process of elimination. I like the details in Edith's face especially.

Spock looks the best in this drawing. The car looks the worst because it looks like a London Double Decker bus without enough windows. I like the colors because it looks very vibrant compared in this drawing. I remember the episode where the 1930's portions looked very dark and faded color wise in the sets and costumes. The only problem I have with Captain Kirk's face is that it looks like a mix between Nicolas Cage & William Shatter but closer to Nicholas Cage.  I love the hand writing on how you wrote City on the Edge of forever. Just my personal criticism.
