Star Trek - Starlight by Kumagorochan Star Trek - Starlight by Kumagorochan
Far away
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

Starlight by Muse

Kirk, stop your face.

Sooo, I'm working on a commission and going to school and being generally angsty, so I don't have much time to draw whatever I want, but I really felt I needed to right now so YEH. KIRK IT IS! XD

I recently finished season 2 of Star Trek: The Original Series uurggghhhhhhhhhhhh I don't want it to end but at the same time I want it to go quickly 'cause I wanna watch the movies fhfjk

Absolutely my favourite favourite too. I just adore this piece. Thank you for creating it!

Is it available to buy?
Kumagorochan Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Thank you, I'm really glad you think so! And you're welcome haha :D

Well, you can buy it as small prints or post cards over at my redbubble:…
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!

I just adore it. Thank you for the link- small print purchased! If you ever redo in a larger size- feel free to let me know, I'd buy one in a wink!

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 :D This is something I would want on my wall.  Gorgeous work; keep it up!!

Wow this is awesome! Love the unique style - especially love how you did his hair! The serene look on his face (yes, space is his *home*) and the galaxy within his figure. Just lovely. I feel inspired! x)

Holy crud! That is amazing. I love the colors and attitude you captured. Excellent work! :D
Crazy4Wonderland Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Thank you for this! For two reasons to love this, I looked up the song and it's just great. Muse is awesome.

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!

Love it! Call me weird but I personally find Shatner's Kirk to be much more handsome than Chris Pine's Kirk.
You've captured his looks perfectly!

I started to watch the old series 1 week ago. I am still in season 1. It is sooo cool to watch it with full concentration (when I was younger I watched some series now and than). I should have watched them before the first movie, but oh well ... Better late than never. :D
Love this picture (I think I told you before, but I can tell this even more often.) :D

Wonderful colors! And your drawing's great as well, I like how you kept the 'old paper with pencil' effect, it's really beautiful.

I love the pose and the colors in the shirt. I've been working through OS too - about to finish season one.

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.
