David Hyde Klingon by angelacapel David Hyde Klingon by angelacapel
I had this concept once to write an episode of Star Trek Voyager and to create a character with an actor in mind. I chose David Hyde Pierce, of Frasier fame, and decided to morph him into a Star Trek alien. The obvious choice, of course, was to make him a klingon. I didn't want to obliterate his features entirely with the full klingon look, so I've made him a half klingon, like B'Ellana Tores. I'm rather pleased with how this thing came out. And I'm also amused at the individuality I put into his forehead ridges.

Portrait is done in pencil. I used two photos of David for study on making this.

Klingon: I will crush your bones into dust you miserable PA'TAK!

Klingon Niles: Well if that isn't acting out I don't know what is!

Niles would also probably try and steam press the entire Bird of Prey.

It would be great if Voyager encountered The Borg and The New Queen was MARIS!

This would have been good in the Star Trek Voyager/Frasier Crossover. [link]

It is good, but I think curly dark hair, not matter how long, would fit better.

If I drew it today, I may have done that, but this is ages and ages old. Thanks for your comment! I should start drawing trek art again. I actually did a christmas card that I'll post shortly with a ferengi on it.

This is awesome! I would have loved to see David Hyde Peirce as a Klingon in some episode... Great picture!

Thanks so much! :) I did this piece in high school, so it is really an old piece for me, but I'm still proud of it. :)

You know, you're not the first person to notice it's pixilated. I scanned it a few years ago and I guess I scanned it on low quality. I have a tendancy to do that, being as I want the image to look, to me, smoother... showing less of my pencil lines, but perhaps I'm misguided in that thought. I should find that drawing again and do a re-scan.

I would have added long hair. Seems to be a staple for all male klingons. I really wish this was better quality, its pretty pixilated. Maybe scan at a higher DPI or smaller image size.

I can try to scan it again sometime. I have trouble making things still look good and be at a size that people aren't intimidated waiting for it to load. For some reason I tend to scan things at the lowest quality but still have it as a huge size... I'm not as savy as I'd like, but I'll learn in time.
