Captain Kirkish 2010 Character Design
“We’ve got to risk implosion. We may explode into the biggest fireball this part of the galaxy has seen, but we’ve got to take that one in a million chance.” ~ Captain Kirk in ‘The Naked Time’
In the year 2010, Space Travel was possible. . . . But not very far.
Boldly going where no man has gone before was just a dream. There was no Mars. . . . no Jupiter moons. . . . . no the wannabe planet Pluto.. . . .
Who thought we’d have flying cars by now? Raise your hand. . . . . I know I did.
(Shakes a clenched hand up at an imaginary comic book thought bubble. This jittery phantom of a thought balloon lingered like an electric smoke cloud above my head, with a bit of static like an old lit television, bleed through from an ancient dead channel in a parallel Universe. It was the opening credits of the Jetson’s. . . . .
Starts singing the theme song like a kid again, “Jetson’s meet the Jetson’s” . . . . Coughs…… clears throat . . . . ” pauses….. Quickly looks around to see if anyone is watching while imaginary bubble disappears like a phantom.)
Anyways….. What’s really important is I have a new post to show you today. Something retro. Something new. Something 2010.
It’s my take on a Captain Kirk-like character design. Not exactly Kirk, but I think it has the feeling of that type of character.
Let me know what you think and Tell me how you imagined 2010 as a kid? How did you see your heroes? Any heroes that maybe you came up with when you were kid? Any sketches you wanna share????
Anyways I hope you enjoy. Until next time. . .
Beam me up Scotty!!!
