This ship is taking me far away
Far away from the memories
Of the people who care if I live or die
I will be chasing the starlight
Until the end of my life
I don't know if it's worth it anymore

Kirk, stop your face.

Is it available to buy?
Well, you can buy it as small prints or post cards over at my redbubble: www.redbubble.com/people/kumal…
Other than that I'm sorry to say it's in a too low resolution to get in any good sizes. I've been thinking of maybe re-doing it some day and make it big enough for real prints, but I'm a bit paranoid over not being able to get it right haha XD But we'll see! Maybe one day!
Thanks so much for this wonderful piece, it adds light to my life.
This is one of my favourite pieces in my Favourites. And that’s saying something, because I have a lot of Favourites! I just love this piece. The thing about Kirk is that exploration is his heart and soul, and space is the final frontier (as he tells us every episode)—the last avenue of unexplored terrain in a futuristic world. I think this piece perfectly encapsulates that.
Not only is it conceptually gorgeous, but the likeness is utterly exquisite. It looks exactly like Kirk. His expression is perfectly suited to the mood, and the piece is just the right side of stylized. You have depicted the facial features, expression, hair, posture and angle perfectly.
If I could change anything about this work, I would want it to be in a higher resolution. I wish with all my heart I had drawn it; I would be so proud This is something I would want on my wall. Gorgeous work; keep it up!!

Secondly, a character I never expected to like when I started TOS was of course, Captain Kirk. I must admit, I didn't like him so much in the reboot. He seemed sort of /too/ womanizing. I realize that was in Kirk's original character as well, but New!Kirk is just a bit too brash/arrogant for me. Where is in TOS (Saying Old Kirk makes me sad rofl) he's much more responsible and even has some words of wisdom. Anyways, the point is....this is an amazing piece of art and it captures his somewhat playful attitude and wonderment of the stars. You've created his likeness perfectly. Excellent job!
You've captured his looks perfectly!
Love this picture (I think I told you before, but I can tell this even more often.)
I was NG kid until my best friend introduced me to DS9. After recovering from the ending, I devoured Voyager and am now going back to OS. I find I can appreciate the much more as an adult: when I was a kid all I saw was sixties hokeyness, but now I see that it was WAY ahead of its time.
