Some very cool artwork in this thread!

If any of you talented folks take requests, I'd love to see Sandra Oh (Grey's Anatomy) in a TWoK era captain's uniform.

Hard to find a good shot with the right lighting... here's a stab at it:

Well done Gary7, excellent work! Her facial expression (especially compared to Kirk's) gives the impression that she has just pulled one over on him somehow.

Thanks. Yeah, that's what made this particular head shot so workable... if only the lighting was better. I have to learn how to change the lighting angle on a face. It's not easy.

Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

You should have added a touch of blue on her face and darkened her face. Maybe added some grain or... blur or something to make her less HD-y vs. Kirk.

Hm... You gotta tweak around a bit to get it super perfect. That's what I did with Morrissey.

You could tweak the colour of the top Intrepid to make it more grey so it's not as contrast-y as the rest of the ships.

Thanks for the tips. The original shot had the focus on Kirk, with Saavik a little blurry. So I went with keeping that focal perspective. I did add blur, but you're right that there's still more information there. The lighting is too warm, so a little blue would probably help. I wanted to try incorporating some of the reflections that were on Saavik's onto Sandra's, but that'll take much more work.

The trick is to start with a photo of the "add on" person having the same lighting angles. Looks like you had that with Morrissey to start and then accentuated a little.

While I always approve of more House in Star Trek, it does rather look like his cane is stabbed into her leg

Thanks for the ID, Lanny77. I was about to ask who the guy in the wrinkled shirt with womanly fingernails was.

^ Yeah, I think it would've been better to see more of Dr. House in this one. Not his whole face... just up to his stubbly chin.

Actually, Morrissey looked a lot different. Here's the original:

Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

^ Wow... you're right. That is quite a difference! The good thing with a shot like that is that existing lighting and shadows are very diffused and uniform. It's tough when your starting photo has strong shadows already in it. What technique did you employ to create the bright spots on his forehead and nose? To create shadows, I use a polygonal selector tool with feathering set to 5, then go to Hue/Saturation and cut back on Lightness. I also play with turning down Brightness on the Contrast tool. I didn't have good results with introducing shine, so I tend to avoid doing it. I think maybe the issue was having feathering set too high.
