Star Trek TNG manga style by kheelan Star Trek TNG manga style by kheelan
Started this last summer...but like most things this past year, I've not had the time to finish until recently.

I prefer drawing them normally [as in trying to get a comic style that gets as close to a likeness as I can] but for this I wanted to try this crew in a mangaish style. It's not a perfect conversion, and still feels more "American" to me [which might be a good thing]. But I'm pretty happy with it.

Thanks so much for looking.

Yeah...this looks very American/Western, but I'd say one (there are more, but this is big) of the reasons for that is the colouring--it's very typical of the things I see in American comics these days. Very. The style, too, instantly makes me think "modern American comic." But that's not a criticism, per se. I don't necessarily like modern American comics, but since ST:TNG is such a western thing, it's not bad that it's not in a manga style. XD

Dude this is totally awesome. I can see the manga-ish set-up cause I have some Naruto posters have have this set-up. Very nice background colors.

Great Style, I love your characterization!! Simply great...

I'm trying to do a Star Trek manga too, but I'm not very aware of the colouring and stylization techniques...

I love the style you drew them in! No matter how hard I tried, I could never get a manga/cartoonish style with them to work and look like them (maybe I'm too picky) but I really think this is great, it's an awesome rendition!

evion Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah man, this is great. Admittedly my first time seeing the TNG crew attempted in a different style like this. Love how you really were able to bring out their unique facial features and exaggerate them! XD
kheelan Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2007
Man, ever since the Tokyopop Star Trek manga came out, I've been seeing animeish Kirks and Spocks everywhere [well, that's probably exagerated, but you know what I mean]. But then again, TOS seems to get all the love.
And your last line really made me smile...thank you so much.

You have all of them perfect. Even Riker's smug charm face.

Picard looks rather annoyed though.
