Have some Cardassians!
I wanted to do some sort of face chart thing, because for someone who is doing alien redesigns to put some variation into the Trek universe and for someone who answered an ask yesterday with a massive post about lack of diversity within species in Star Trek, I think my Cardassians were starting to look too similar in some ways.
So here’s a bunch of DS9, TNG and VOY Cardassians (plus one OC, Silara), with their different colourations and different snouts and different nostrils, and different crests and different hair etc. Mostly for my own reference, but I think this might be quite interesting for others too?
Not pictured: Colouration that is more greeeen, but I ran out of characters that I remembered and knew at the time, and these already took a million years despite being tiny weeny profile shots.
After drawing Marritza though, you know what I realised? I haven’t drawn enough Cardassians with extra chin. Really I should be giving Garak some of that. I can only imagine how much fun Enabran Tain will be, Marritza is rocking it.
I finished the set! TOS meets AOS. :)
Also available on all kinds of things over on society6!
Bonus Carol! I didn’t include her since there’s, you know, nothing on her in TOS until Wrath of Khan. So I made stuff up.
