“James Doohan was cast as the Enterprise engineer for the second Star Trek pilot, “Where No Man Has Gone Before” (1966) on the recommendation of that episode’s director, James Goldstone, who had worked with him before. The character almost didn’t make it to the show after series creator Gene Roddenberry sent Doohan a letter informing him, “We don’t think we need an engineer in the series”; only the intervention of Doohan’s agent meant that the character could remain. He tried a variety of accents for the part, and decided to use a Scottish accent on the basis that he thought Scottish people make the best engineers.”

Spock – The Pain of Loss

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.

Pastel portrait on green paper

Pastel chalks – noname 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.

Captain Kirk disappears while trying to rescue the USS Defiant. Spock must accept the fact that his friend is no longer alive.
