Title: zarla sheenaza - a tribute to StarCon Goddess
Post by: Son_of_Antares on March 23, 2009, 10:04:57 pm
You probably heard for her people, but I thought that it would be appropriate to make a tribute on the UQM forums for one of the greatest SC fans ever, who is also a very talented artist and believe it or not she's not a geek but a geekess (99.98% of SC fans I know are male).

Here's a link for her gallery over at devianart (http://zarla.deviantart.com/gallery/#Star-Control-2-The-Ur-Quan-Masters) and a link to her very own SC hub (http://www.ashido.com/sc2/) with even more beautiful SC related art.

You may also be interested in a UQM walkthrough (http://screencappery.wikispot.org/Star_Control_II:_The_Ur-Quan_Masters) made by her and a really nice flash movie (http://zarla.deviantart.com/art/Star-Control-2-Western-Show-106714785) with SC thematic ;D

I'm a big silent fan of her art and work (not just SC2) because she does it all with so much passion and love and with some very original and quite sympathetic sense for humor. And just had to share it. Hope she becomes a SC Goddess or something so I can build her a gargantuan temple with loads of ZEX and Zelnicks statues around the altars and worship her all day long :D ::) Keep it coming zarla, we love you! ;)

Enjoy it people!

If I were writing the Star Control sequel, I'd include some dialog like this:
Quote
Captain: So how did the VUX handle the demise of ZEX?
Some VUX: The reactions were quite varied. The people who mainly remembered him as a war hero were deeply saddened. The ones who mainly saw him as a freak thought he had it coming. There are some wild conspiracy theories too, claiming that he never actually died. Some say he ran off with you, captain. Some say he ran off with this Earth girl, Zarla. Some even say he ran off with you and this Zarla.

Man if those Activison corp tight-asses would look ONE inch further from their paychecks and actually see from what sort of people their fanbase is made of, I bet they would let TFB make not just a decent sequel to SC2 but a whole new trilogy with female Captain named Zarla ;D eh, that would be soooo awesome...too bad it's not going to happen :P

It's 3:20 in the morning and I'm still awake reading this stuff ... Good thing I don't need to go to work tomorrowtoday :)
Zarla's dedication to Zex is admirable . Wander if anyone will help her with the secret mod ...

Wow. I knew about Zarla from frungylovers of course, but I've never seen that page before. Way cool.

Very impressive...

I am ashamed that I wasn't aware of any of this until now.

nice pic :). Looks like this whole ZEX thing is a big hit on deviantart, almost all SC related stuff is Zexey!

I'd guess that's mostly due to Zarla's influence .
And besides , most SC2 fanart is either VUX or Spathi with a very few exceptions anyway .

Zarla is awesome.  She even made a DDR cartoon and added Star Control characters in it: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/510929

Arne and her need to get together and collaborate on some art project. They both are exceptional artists.

That was an awesome flash by the way....enjoyed it!!

I don't think joined art project would be possible between the two - the graphical styles are absolutely different .
For the flash - yeah , really nice one !

Funny, when I saw Samus Aran as a ball, I didn't catch that it was Samus (must have looked away?) and thought it was the armadillo from Road to El Dorado. Which made sense, since 2 of the 3 main characters of the movie were also included...

For me the bomb-jump made it obvious . I failed to recognize a lot of other characters , though ...
Was surprized to find Wilco R. there .
