Leonard Nimoy Mar 26, 1931 - Feb 27, 2015
I was really sad to hear about the actor’s passing. He was one of the first actors I knew by name as a child, along with his co-star, William Shatner. Aside from playing Spock, he voiced a lot of characters from my childhood.
Spock has always been one of the most memorable characters for me in television and movie history. I grew up watching the Star Trek movies, and although I do remember watching the show, I always loved the movies more. So I created this with his movie uniform instead of his blue uniform.
But Spock’s character always meant a lot to me personally. When I was little instead of crying for my parents when I was scared, most of the time I’d think about how Mr. Spock would handle it. It’s cute to think that a kid would do that, but it also makes an amazing amount of sense to turn to the stoic science officer!
So even though I’m only a casual fan of Star Trek, I’ll always be thankful to Leonard Nimoy for being the man behind the lovable, logical Vulcan.
5 to 6 hours in Photoshop. Reference from the Star Trek series and movies used. I’m not really the best at rendering aged persons, but I did my best for Mr. Spock! I’m not to happy with the Star Fleet Officer badge, because I’m pretty sure it’s not too accurate, but it was horrible finding reference. Other than that, I’m pleased with most of this.
