PlanetMudd, very cool! A unique comic style; I'm really impressed that you cranked it out that fast and still managed to follow right on the heels of my late entry, even to tossing in Nurse O'Malley

Ptrope, have you tweaked your McCoy? On your webpage, he comes over like his ten year younger brother, here he looks like he is with one foot in the grave (or is that just the different resolution/lighting?). I'd say get his eyes a little less blood-shot and you have basically settled him.
I actually tried to 'young him down' a bit - the lighting highlighted some areas where I had him looking too old, but, yeah, it's mostly the harsh lighting. I'll look at cleaning up his eyes, too

Spock on the other hand shows how Vulcans age slower than humans. (It is strange how there are several quite good likenesses of Spock around, but I have yet to see some Kirk alter-ego that is halfway passable, although he actually his appearance changes the most between the end of TOS and TMP.)
I like the way Spock looks, but I don't think I did a very good job on making him look like Leonard Nimoy - I didn't really have a lot of time to spend on the morph, and I'll be going back to fix it.

I can't wait to see something tangible coming from that TAS re-animated project, even a small scene i.e. on the bridge as proof of concept.
You and me both!

Looking forward to Vektor's contribution.

EDIT: When I did my panels, I hadn't read the link upthread about Kirk's mystery tool (hey, stop that giggling! ); I knew I recognized it, but when it turned out not to be one of the various sonic screwdrivers, I decided to be intentionally vague about temporal connections. Glad to see I kept it in the ballpark!

Merciful Mogg!!! What have I gotten myself into??!!!

As Vector observed, this "round robin" has launched far stronger than I suspected. I fear I'll appear the "weak link" in this chain.

I'd better keep an eye open for Vector's entry so that I won't fall behind schedule.

Sincerely,

Bill

Does that mean I have convinced you? If so, cool!

You've got seven days for your entry. If you don't find the time, just PM the next one.

I was thinking something very similar myself. It's been an incredibly high standard all round... I'll certainly not be able to keep up, I'll give it a good try, though.

Holy crap! Nothin' like taking your time there, PM. Guess I know what I'll be doing for the weekend.

I gotta say, though, when this idea was first proposed I thought it sounded like one of those sorta cool ideas that would never go anywhere. Boy was I wrong! This is turning out to be one of the flat-out awesomest things to hit this forum in a long time.
Seconded! The turnaround time alone has been eye-popping (except for that lazy-a$$ Ptrope guy!), all the more so for the quality and diversity of the entries. It's great to see the excitement!

Might want to tweak that Spock model a bit, Ptrope. He looks kinda young. The chin/jaw area needs to be more prominent.

McCoy's mouth looks like it should be a little wider, too...a little less jowls.

Re: An Idea For A Game/Project

Looks like it's going to come down to the wire for me. Planet Mudd's one-day turnaround really caught me off-guard and I've been scrambling to put my entry together. The way my schedule is looking this week, I may actually have to pass until the next go-around. I should know for sure by early tomorrow.

Ah, thanks for the warning (as I'm next on the "chopping block"). I'll be sure to check the boards in the morning. (Not that it's a problem; I take a peek several times a day, anyway.)

Sincerely,

Bill

Yeah, the Spock was done pretty quickly and isn't anywhere near a finished morph; McCoy was more a case of the lighting showing up flaws I hadn't seen previously under different lights.

Might have to start learning Z-Brush or Mudbox ...

ETA: Ptrope, I noticed that you have seperated the two threads. Thank you for that. Also, thank you for stickying the comic thread.

Great to hear! Here's a peek at the style I'll be using for the strip when it's my turn.
