Orac, I hope you don't mind... I really liked your take on the TNG-Cage crossover, so I did another variation.

Its somewhat ironic that young Majel Barrett looks so good on Troi's body. I guess we know what Ian Andrew Troi saw in Lwaxana!

That's really good. The only critique I have is that Picard has no neck, so it looks a little odd, when viewed right next to Spock there.

^ Thanks. Actually, Kirk doesn't have much of one either in the original. His shoulders are shirked upward some, which swallows his neck a bit from the camera angle. I did think about trying to raise Picard's head some more, but figured it was OK. Now that you mention it, it started bugging me, so here's another take.

Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

Fair enough. Just an at-a-glance observation, really. Maybe it's that Picard's head is too big?

I don't know what it is, it just looks like he's slouching.

Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

^ I appreciate the feedback, thanks.

Yeah, I usually try to match up the orientation of the eyes and mouth, attempting to scale until they're about the same. But sometimes that doesn't work due to different proportions for each person, or the camera angle. I did shrink his head just a touch and I think it looks a little better. The real key is finding images with the same light source position and shadow casting. I imagine a professional can mimic light sources and shadows, but I've not had much luck with trying it. Anyway, it's fun to come up with passable looking scenes that never happened.

For an idea that's been bouncing around in my head for a while now... not sure if it'll ever amount to a fic or anything, but it's one that's been bugging me for a while now...

Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

the ideas just been there for a while... was watching some old Highlander episidoes a few days back, and this scene just struck a chord with me...

Duncan: Immortality definitely has an upside. Think about it, in 400 years you might be racing starships instead of Harleys.

Richie: You think things are going to change that much?

Duncan: Well, Richie, when I was a kid, the fastest way to travel was by horse, and if you wanted to fly, you had to be a bird.

Richie: All right. I'll see ya later.

Duncan: Thanks for the help. No problem.

Richie: Oh, and by the way, Mac, in 400 years when we do race starships, I'm gonna kick your ass.

Duncan: Sure you will. I'll see ya later.
While Richie died the next year sadly, I could definitely see Duncan joining Starfleet in the future... especially after an attack on Earth... he'd see it as 'his duty' to protect his planet or some other honourable stuff lol

Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

^ Nice work! The lighting on their faces is very different though, as if one was indoors and the other outdoors. If you could get an indoor head shot of Duncan with similar lighting and shading to Richie, it'd work a bit better. Otherwise, proportions and blending is looking good.
