Star Trek redesigns by thundercake Star Trek redesigns by thundercake
I guess this is fanart? My friend ~carcadann and I were watching Star Trek DS9 and I was thinking how all the aliens look basically like humans with makeup, and what they would look like if ST could have played around with the bone structure and design a bit more. So I did some little speedpaints of how I think they'd look.

This is sure to piss off some Trekkie but I had fun doing different takes on the aliens =p Apart from these little portraits I've been working on body designs.

These are kinda semi-based off the characters, but they turned into more general portraits of the alien races.

1. Bajoran - this one's definitely meant to be Kira =p They're really spiritual and they have a warm cast to their design so I tried making them look a bit more ethereal, very long and spindly with pink eyes, and I pushed the ears a bit more. Also gave them four arms in the body design. :D
2. Trill - major changes here. I hated how Trills were so completely different physiologically speaking (they have a symbiont inside of them) yet they look like humans with a little jaguar facepaint - boring. So I...did this. The third eye is supposed to be the symbiont eye, and in unjoined Trills this eye is closed. Also gave them tails.
3. Changeling/Odo... Odo based his own form off the form of a Bajoran scientist, so I made him slightly look more Bajoran and took away his hair - that hair looks AWFUL, odo!
4. Ferengi - their design is already great. I just pushed it a bit.. I did a body design for most of these, and the Ferengi body is more changed than the head design, but I thought I'd do a painting anyway.
5. Klingon - brought the cheek bones up around the eyes, tried to give him a more feral look with all-black eyes and more beard. My body design for the Klingons is a lot bigger and beefier than the real one.
6. Cardassian - my favorite star trek race.. I just played with the bones a bit. Their bodies will be extremely top-heavy.

I just finished up this set today as part of my warm-up.. but today is a work day, I have to make up for my sick days -_-

the only objections i have is the 3rd eye of the trill and the coloring of the cardassian (gray, which i think should be reserved for the Jem Hadar), but other than that, very Very Nice.

Cant wait to see full-body designs, as well as the re-designs of other trek races. :D

Awesome. Why didn't the modern Star Trek series do things more like this? Budget constraints? Did it even occur to them?

No Vulcans I see. No issue with them, I guess?
