Franz Joseph Technical Manual---In Color?!?!

I've been wanting to do this forever, and now, having burnt myself out on a different project, I decided to cleanse my palate with some quick and dirty photoshop. I've always had to imagine what would the black and white designs in the hallowed FJTM look like in actual living color...

IMAGINE NO LONGER!

I made a few color versions of some of the national emblems.

Like I said, quick and dirty, but I figured some of you might get a kick out of them.











I'm a little embarrassed at my attempt at "copper" on the last one... but, like I said.... quick and dirty.

Have fun!

Not yet. But I expect I'll get around to do more of them. I want to do at least all of the flags and seals and such.

Really cool.

Just FYI, clicking on each image takes you to the home page of postimage.org, and not to a larger version of the image as one might expect.

Nice work, Albertese. But FJ got the colors on the Fed pennant wrong. There's some yellow in there (the letters).

Silver on red is what the tech manual says for the UFP banner. If Albertese is being true to the tech manual, then it's fine.

My brain read the thread title and immediately thought "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolored Dreamcoat."

Yeah, I scale the images down when I post them. Sorry if you were hoping for a big version.

I agree, but I'm going strictly with what FJ did. Personally, I think it looks better with yellow/gold in there, but that's not what FJ did.

Yeah, I guess the good people of Epsilon Indii are really into the visible spectrum.

According to Wikipedia, the first LGBT rainbow flag was flown in 1978. I wonder if the FJTM had been made after that, rather than three years before that, if this would be the same.

Either way, this is about colorizing the tech manual and I hope to leave the gender politics aside.

Everyone else, thanks, guys!

S'OK. I only had an expectant feeling when I saw the images were clickable.
