It's an AOS spin on the TOS episode Court Martial. Good stuff!
There is also another artist who picked this fic. You can see emilywritescrap's art over at her tumblr!
Now for some brief artist thoughts ...
For this piece I was hugely inspired by TOS style posters, while trying to stay focused on Kirk and Spock. I played with the checkerboard as being the ion storm and the Enterprise escaping from it, while Spock holds the fallen king and Kirk looking concerned. Hopefully I balanced the graphic and realistic elements so they tie together.
Mediums: Acrylic, metallic paint pen, and a hint of sharpie pen.
