THANK YOU DEARS FOR COMMENTS AND FAVS!! I can't reply to everything, but I love you guys. ಥ◡ಥ

OMG I have no idea it's this humongous. Just DOWNLOAD it.
Unless of course you have ginormous monitor with high resolution.
Do I really need to resize this? comment.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So here comes the finished product.
Can't say I'm completely happy with it. As I said 3/4th way through I've lost all my ..data.. due a "catastrophic cascading failure".. of my computer. :iconsadplz:
I was unable to retrieve my files, but I saved part of it on an external hard drive, and I was able to savage Data and Lore (partially).
In the end I give up on trying to redraw the background details (use to be that very faintly you can see Lal, screens, wall light, etc) and instead went ahead and "animated" it.

Some part of the drawing got sloppy because I really didn't have the time or the energy to redo everything. I'm so sorry Lore T-T
Lore is meant to look a little awkward laying there, but there still stuff I'm not satisfied with hum..

I've shortened Data's hair a tiny bit by request, and changed tiny bits here and there, prob no one would even notice but w/e =)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Anyone else find Lore's blank iris-less eyes disturbing when Data deactivated him? It just shrinks and a layer of like cloudy pearly film covered up his eyes.

Here Data is just putting him in a lesser? state of deactivation.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So basic premise is a post-emotion-chip Data afflicted by his recent experience with the Borg visit the only brother he have (to his knowledge) in remembrance and contemplates their relationship.

O_O I guess this is where he keeps Lore and Lal with him on the Enterprise, yes he savaged them from Enterprise-D, I'm just glad the Borg haven't found them OTL. I figure Data won't really want the Daystrom Institute dudes to be disassembling Lore, his only brother, even if he was evil. And perhaps because...

I am so in love with this. I.. think I'm crushing a bit. Who wouldn't want a man, perfectly engineered, calm and intelligent. It's the dream, really.

I loved Lore too. But Data was far more human than Lore. He did not possess an emotion chip, but he understood the importance of friendship, loalty and love. Lore on the other hand became a monster. But I wonder if he was only disfunctional or if it was a choice. Is evil a sickness? A malfunction? Can it be cured? Should it be cured or will it destroy free will if we make everyone good?

This is by far the best picture I've ever seen on Deviantart. 
And I've been here for a while.
Amazing job, I absolutely adore this.

There's nothing I don't love about this picture, but I especially appreciate that you kept Data "young" - I never bought the whole "aging program" business. Alas, dear Brent was only human...

The facial expressions are haunting and astonishing. I honestly don't know which one is more moving - Lore's dead, vacant stare (with a hint of shock, no less), or Data's pensive, remorseful one. Even Data's hand looks beautiful. I'm just so sorry that, as you said, the background was unfortunately lost. The darkness in the picture is still nice, though; after all, it's a very dark moment for both Data and Lore. Wonderful, wonderful picture that affects the viewer on so many levels.

You can really feel Data's regret. Lore left him no choice but to deactivate him, but the fact still remains that it was done by Data's hand. I feel so sorry for Data. He was so excited to have another android like him reactivated in Datalore, but in the end, it came to nothing but pain.

Data just tore at my heart stings whatever it is he does. And it's a huge sadness on my part to never see Lore again after Descent. I will always wonder what happened to him.

Wow, this is amazing. They're so realistic and beautiful at once. I like the colours too. (Btw, I followed your link, and suddenly, Lore was staring at me, with his empty eyes! It was almost shocking! XD)
I like it very much, it's perfect!

Thank you for your kind comment. I'm glad I was able to depict how beautiful Data is (he's beautiful both physically and spiritually) and Lore.
Lore and his empty eyes give me the creeps when I first saw it. It still does tbh.
I'm so happy you like it. :dance:

Wonderful lighting. I love Data's expression, it's very him. Also, Lore's face, not quite aware of what is happening to him, but not quite oblivious either. As if he knows he should be terrified, but doesn't quite know how. It's amazing how his eyes come alive.

Also, you've just made my life so much better, I've always wanted a soundfile of the Enterprise D's background hum. I had no idea such a thing as Trekcore existed. Thank you.

Don't worry about the lost background detail- it's somehow a very intimate scene, and the fact that there is mostly darkness around them adds to that. I like it that way. :nod:

PS: Data's hair and lashes, oh my God! So soft. To think that's some kind of plastic!

Wow that's probably the longest comment I've ever received. Such a detailed assessment, thank you, I like to see what people liked about a piece of work and what they don’t so it help me to improve. :hug:
I'm glad I was able to point you to trekcore. it's amazing the amount of resources made available to fans by fans, it's a work of art in and of itself.
I initially meant to make this a basic drawing, so I wanted to add details so that every time someone look at it there might be some little thing to discover, but as you have said I liked how this sort of turned out with the attention on the brothers.
Just imagine touching that hair. :woohoo:

You're welcome! It deserves the praise!

Btw, the more I look at it, the more I am fascinated with their respective facial expressions. It's a bit like the roles have been reversed- Lore is supposed to be the cynical cruel one, and Data the innocent soul (I recently noticed that I keep referring to Data as "a gentle soul", which I find interesting since he's, well- you know) that wonders about everything and everyone. But here Lore is the vulnerable one. I think you captured the expressions of both of them from the scene in the actual episode very well. In spite of what Lore did, I felt bad for him because he just doesn't seem to know better, and his "I love you, brother" is just heart-breaking.
I like how Data doesn't look directly at him here, but appears to be staring into empty space. I admire Brent Spiner's ability to put so much emotion into a seemingly expressionless face, how he always makes it visible that there is a lot more going on in Data than he cares to admit to himself or can interpret, and you've done that very well, too.

I imagine touching Data's hair a lot, tbh. :XD: I'm currently rewatching TNG and sometimes all I can think is "ME WANTS TO RUFFLE THIS!" Only when I'm not busy staring at his hands, of course, which, on that note, you have drawn wonderfully.

There, even longer comment. :boogie:

Can I come back to a beautiful comment like this every time I get to check DA. <3 thank you

Every time Mr.Spiner's hand shows up on screen I can't help but admire them. TBQH I believe I have a mild case of hand fetish. :shifty: So I'm hyper critical of how they turn out in my drawings. Some of the time they turn out satisfactory, other times... I end up giving up perfecting them after exhausting number of corrections. So I very glad you think these are nice.

Keep doing stuff like this and I'm sure I'll spill more random admiration. :lol:

I just watched Brent Spiner's two minute appearance in the newest Big Bang Theory episode. Not spectacular, but funny, until the moment where he wants to seal a contract with a handshake and my brain froze and I was like *HAND* *HAND* *HAND* :drool:. So yeah, tell me about hand fetish...
I almost never like the hands I draw. I've been planning to practice on Brent's, but I'm reluctant to do so because I might ruin them.

This is beautiful. I love it SO much!

I had been told that Lore's saying "I love you" was just a ruse trying to get Data to not deactivate him. I dunno, I personally choose to think it was because Lore did love him.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it.
In my fictional mind, although manipulation and control is what Lore does best, there is always some sort of reason and emotional truth to what he says, and he believes in them, at least on some partial or unconscious level.
