Title: Art Deco Spock/Uhura
Pairing: Spock/Uhura
Rating: PG at most, for a clingy dress
Disclaimer: I like them very much, but they are not the hell my whales.
Notes: Created at the request of [livejournal.com profile] sesh_khem, as part of Prompt-a-Mod Day at [livejournal.com profile] st_respect. Referenced to photographs and to the paintings of Tamara de Lempicka.
Apologies: To my friendslist people, for subjecting them to a new post with this thing just about every time I made a new brushstroke. And to art historians, for potential artistic inaccuracies, because dammit Jim I'm an astronomer.
Eight Billion Thanks: To [livejournal.com profile] anodyna, for inestimable wisdom and invaluable artistic eyeballs. And brains (not BRAAAINS, just brains).

Very nice. I'm especially impressed with the boobs. Looks just like this Tamara de Lempicka: http://alice.loria.fr/publications/papers/2006/EGSR_Ardeco//supplemental/images/Lempicka_green_dress.png

That's because I have been staring at that painting for a week.

What do you mean, boobs aren't perfectly conical?!

I'm hardly picky about ships, but I'll admit that this wasn't one of my main ones until I started painting them and then -- HEY. Apparently staring at two people for hours is a pretty good way to start shipping them wildly

(Pike, now, IS a ship I ship and always have. With anyone or anything, HELLO ADMIRAL OMG.)

Anyway, thank you for looking at a ship that isn't yours, and thank you again for the comment! :)

Oh, it came out so beautifully! I'm amazed at how well you were able to capture T de L's style and also just the look of brushwork. It's truly gorgeous!

(Don't be afraid of deviant art, bb! I used to think it wasn't for me because I'm not that deviant, but it turns out there's no minimum deviancy requirement. :) But really, two things: one, everyone from professionals to, um, severely amateur amateurs are on there, so there's really, really no pressure to qualify or be "good enough," and (b) your work is beautiful and you're really talented so it's not even an issue. I've never posted work there so I can't speak to advantages/disadvantages, but if it's something you ever felt like doing I wouldn't hesistate. Your awesomeness is awesome!)

((PPS: You're getting much well-deserved love at spock_uhura also, fyi.))

CHEERLEADER SPOCK CHEERS FOR YOU! CUBIST BOOBS FTW!

I meant it with the 8 billion thanks for you. That's one per second for the next 254 or so years, so WATCH OUT.

(I will consider this deviantart thing. I did make an account at one point, purely so I could see naked people -- you see how my mind works -- but I never considered it as a place to actually post stuff.)

This is exceedingly beautiful :D When I was studying art history, Art Deco was one of the styles that interested me...and you nailed it here :D Awesome work.

Oh, thank you! I'm glad to hear that the style works for you, since I knew very little about art deco before I saw the prompt. So thanks for commenting -- it's very encouraging. :)

I have to thank [livejournal.com profile] anodyna again for her amazing help with the color. The purple dress was her idea and I really think it made everything just sort of work from then on.
