Nicely done Neoworx. Did you use Photoshop? If so, which tools?

I think the uniforms look really nice like this! Maybe better with a black collar as someone suggested.

Thanks, yes I did these in Photoshop (using too many techniques to explain here – sorry).

I reiterate that I think the WOK maroons are perfect just the way they are, but I thought it would be interesting to look at some variations. I think the black collar is too foreboding-looking (a bit fascistic, I think). I recolored the rank strap as well.

I like the department color look but I think they look better with the collar and fastener being left white.

Great job! I hate it (the look, not your work) as it makes things look too cartoony, IMO. I think the original style was the right thing to go with and I'm glad they did it. The unified "maroon look" across all crew members (officers and enlisted) gave a cohesiveness that the 3-color approach would have lacked as demonstrated in this pic.

Ditto. At first from the Photoshoping you did of the uniforms by themselves I thought it might look good. But I just knew seeing the uniforms standalone versus on a person and placed in a scene of the movie was another matter. And sure enough, it just doesn't look all that great when put into a real shot of the movie.

To make the colored uniforms work the entire set would have to be relit to be brighter, etc. The three color versions of the uniforms might look fine, for example, in the revamped/brightened version of the movie-era bridge as seen at the end of TVH.

I love the concept, but that shade of gold doesn't work for me, it looks like split-pea soup or something. The blue looks awesome though!

Brighten the set, make the gold uniform more gold, and make all of the collars and stripes white, then we're talking.

Still not a fan. I'll stick to the original. Make mine maroon!

Well, keep in ind that the original "gold" was really more of an avocado color and just came across as gold on screen so I was going for somewhere more in the middle.
