The Harvest Moon is seen rising in the sky above the domes of the Smolny Cathedral in St. Petersburg, Russia on Sept. 8, 2014, marking the third and final “supermoon” of 2014. The phenomenon, which scientists call a “perigee moon,” occurs when the moon is near the horizon and appears larger and brighter than other full moons.
Fanart of a fanfic haha! This a bit of an older doodle now, inspired by Three And A Half Days by prairiecrow, which I found recommended in a fic recommendation post.
It is a really really lovely fanfic, and I ended up enjoying the mental image of Garak working away with his… very fashionable new covering a lot, so I doodled a version of it. :D Go read the fffiiiiicccccc. <3
(Recently I’ve decided I want tail-sleeves on Cardassians, so this is kind of old and contains naked tail. I wonder if blue is too much of a ‘sexy’ colour to have as outfit accents though, given the whole blue pigmentation thing. =O )
The primary senses of a Cardassian are taste and smell, their forked tongues are incredibly sensitive to chemicals around them. They lead with their noses, and their powerful jaws are full of vicious looking serrated teeth. Behind those, the Cardassian poison glands are located, secreting a potent venom when desired which mingles with the saliva and enters the bloodstream of a victim during a bite.
The thing is, that all goes to hell when somebody brings an untreated bout of Bajoran flu around. Turns out that it really ruins the day (week) of any Cardassian who has the misfortune to bump into it without any recent inoculations. It ruins the senses just like any flu, but in particular it wrecks control over the venom glands and saliva production, and that poor Cardassian is going to spend a week drooling poison everywhere.
For an ordered, brilliant people, catching this flu is a huge cause for embarrassment. For Garak, it is yet another humiliation in his long exile.
(episode subplot: Bashir starts to notice how attractive Garak is and considers the idea of kissing him, but he picked the WORST POSSIBLE TIME TO DO THIS, as Jadzia helpfully reminds him. Find it on AO3 here.)
I considered not posting these because of my personal feelings about tracing/draw-overs, but I figure someone might be interested in these.
It’s really easy for me to get over-excited with serpentine-lizard cardassians and make them twice as big as humans. I felt a good way to get a quick handle on the kind of proportions I’m looking at would be drawing over screenshots like this. Of course it doesn’t work out exactly, because Garak would need to sit/stand a bit differently to this in order to be comfortable (especially in the second draw-over, that’d be quite an uncomfortable position for a thickened neck I imagine). Plus I think I would like them to average out taller than humans and Garak’s just quite short (hey if I’m redrawing them as seperntine-lizard things I may as well play with height too).
Original screenshots provided for both comparison and credit. Nothing special here, just quick practice draw-overs, but just in case they are of interest to anyone, I’m posting them. XD
(Doubtless I’m going to produce some shipping doodles again soon though. This ship just sails itself. PRE-WARNING IF YOU’RE NOT UP FOR THIS SHIP.)
I reallyyyyyyy wanted to wear jeans today, but unfortunately it warmed up this weekend.
