Star Trek Photo Manipulation Archive
 
Just thought I'd drop this into a thread here for anyone who might not know about it, but is interested in "illustrating" their fan fiction.
They have a "requests" section where folks will create photo manips of characters for you be it for fan fic or RPGs or just cause it's something you'd get a kick out of seeing.
Being interested in practicing my photoshop skills, I've joined and done like 20 photo manipulations for folks there.
Thought some of you fan fic writers might take advantage of it:

Some requests I've done for folks:

TOS era Nick Cage with Yorktown patch:

Gabriel Byrne as a Romulan CO

Who in Trek Uniform with sonic screwdriver (I don't know why...it was a request) :vulcan:

Lithgow as a Cardassian Gul

You can PM me, but you might prefer what other folks on the forum over there would do for ya.
But I'll give it a shot, if you'd like. :techman:

OK, I sent a PM--let me know, based on the specs, what you think is the best option!

I'd love to have Diana Muldaur in a F.C. (Blue) C.M.O.'s uniform as I'm looking to revive her character on "Star Trek: Mandela" as Dr. Kathrine Pulaski an on-again/off-again beau to Kyle Riker (Mitchell Ryan), right before Kyle Riker's death saving his son Will, in the "A Time To...." novel series.

Hellsgate, do you own the webspace on which those images are hosted? I suspect not. I also believe you have been reprimanded for hotlinking images in the misc forum, so you should know better!

Please confirm that the webspace is your own or remove the images.

considering the Memory Alpha url, i sincerely doubt that he owns it...

Ok, I'm removing those images, Hellsgate and issuing you a warning for hotlinking. If you actually own the domain at memory alpha or have some other reason for thinking this isn't warnable, PM me.

How do you give an actor who never appeared on Star Trek certain alien features, like Lighgow as a Cardassian?

It's just layering, blending and coloring in photoshop really.
Here's an Andorian I did for someone's TOS era fan fiction:

and here's the steps:

Layers are the key. :cool:

^Good lord, that ship's like the USS 90210. Set phasers to hotness! :drool:

:lol:

By the way, that's absolutely fabulous work!

Thanks.
Yeah. Fan fic writers almost always have an actor in mind cast for their characters I've found. It's really fun to give them an image of their creations. I'm very new to STPMA, but they're very cool over there and I've been having fun.
