I am always in awe of the sheer talent of Star Trek Adventures fans. Today we have a doozy, Sebastian, who posted some jaw-dropping artwork on the STA Discord channel. Let’s let him introduce himself.
“My name is Sebastian (he/him), although I use Thyme as a nickname on the Modiphius Discord. I’m a watercolor and ink artist. I was trained specifically to work in comics, so a lot of the things that really inspire me to create art for myself are narrative-driven, especially narratives as personal and impactful as TTRPGs.
“To get to know a character, I usually draw them so I can imagine them better in my head as I play them, what their expressions might look like, and their mannerisms.
“I actually got into Star Trek because somebody told me that Garak from DS9 would be a good character to study for inspiration with a PC I made in a different tabletop game. Quickly after I started watching I fell utterly in love with the characters, especially (Major Kira and Julian Bashir), and the never-uncomplicated, but still ultimately hopeful future that Star Trek usually presents.
“When I found out about STA a couple of years later, I was really interested in the gameplay; the values system as a narrative tool, and a way for a character to grow and change.
“I’m enjoying the friendly community which really seems to embrace IDIC as a philosophy, and am currently trying my best to learn the ropes of running the game so that I can take my friends on our own deep space adventures! I enjoy sharing the character artwork I’ve done for either STA games I’ve played or character concepts I’ve been playing with so far!”
