Deep Space Nine: Last Call by rocketdave Deep Space Nine: Last Call by rocketdave
It is accomplished.:phew:

A scant number of you may have seen the sketch of this take-off on Da Vinci's Last Supper back in December of 2012 when I uploaded it to my scraps.

Last Supper riff by rocketdave

I'd kinda hoped to have it completed by the following month, to commemorate Deep Space Nine's 20th anniversary, but I was just so damn daunted by how much work I knew would be involved that I left the drawings sitting on the end of my couch and the DVDs I intended to reference gathering dust on top of my TV for a year.  Just under a week ago, the show reached it's 21st anniversary.  If it were a person, it would now be old enough to drink.

I still clearly recall seeing the first promo for DS9.  All it said was "Coming in January" and the name of the show.  Being deep into my Trekkie phase, that was enough to cause me to bound across the room while uttering a triumphant "Yes!" :w00t: in an embarrassing display of enthusiasm before I was stopped short a second later by the realization that I had little clue what "Deep Space Nine" was. :confused: A new movie?  Eventually, I came to regard the show as quite possibly the best of the Star Trek series.

Just finished up watching all of DS 9 about two weeks ago!  One of the best of the Star Trek series in my opinion.  :)

Amazing piece of art! And it's great that you added Morn and a tribble. And Sisko's baseball.^^

Thanks very much for commenting. :) I enjoyed coming up with stuff to include in the scene that fans would hopefully recognize and enjoy. Part of me would have liked to have added more than I did, but I didn't want the inside references to distract from the overall composition.
