ST1 by Rob-Caswell ST1 by Rob-Caswell
For Star Trek 1 I decided to go with a generic subject instead of an episode specific one, since it kicked off the series concept. It's worth noting that I'm using the original splash phrases for most of these... which is really rather amusing as they make Trek sound like Alien or 2001. Such wonderful, dark hyperbole!

I really love these covers. really fantastic... I have my James Blish cover by Chris Achilleos... this would have me buy the books again!..
The only thing that never worked for me on this Enterprise is the grid lines that modellerīs insist on adding to it, they are there but very faint

If you ever do this again I would love to see it done without the gridlines .. imo

:)

I doubt I'll be redoing this project... but thanks for the thoughts. Frankly I'm surprised I did these in the first place. The whole thing took me less than two weeks.... and I just seemed to be so "on" with most of 'em! I'm proud of them... but feel a bit intimidated because I'm not sure I could so well again.

Excellent job, sir. :clap: It's true what you say about the splash phrases. "A chilling journey..." :lmao: I remember Trek as something that was warm and homey. Maybe people were looking for something chilling.

I think it's more a case of clueless art/marketing people.

I keep seeing this in my local used bookstore, but I still haven't bought it.

No, the book. Sorry, not your exact cover, it just reminded me of it.
