This was a very important assignment for me because I knew how important it was to the fans of the franchise. It was a delicate balance of respecting the established looks from previous incarnations yet delivering something appropriate for JJ's film.And also remarked on what he hoped to his look delivered:
Part of my self induced criteria was to do a cleaner version (especially regarding the forehead) and to make them sexy (or sexier if you already find them sexy!)He has posted a gallery full of Klingon artwork, with numerous variations trying out different ridges, ranging from so subtle you almost cant see them, to dinosaur-style head-crests. There's similar exploration of beards with options ranging from styles that wouldn't be out of place on Mr T through to a Fu Manchu. My favourite is an elaborate design feature Pangolin-like scales over the hair (hair armour?):
Here are a few more that stand out to me, but be sure to check out Page's full gallery to see everything he worked on; they're very impressive designs!
Page promises more artwork is on the way. In the mean time if you find the "behind the scenes" section on my Into Darkness guide page you'll find links to other concept art and other behind the scenes stuff that has so far been released.
