Oh, most definitely.

Cethente and Chaka are very clearly based on your sketches, as those are the only depictions of those characters available.

George, Dakal, Keru, Rager, Eviku, Titan Avatar, and Akaar are all shots from Trek. Leybenzon is actually (mostly) Cmdr. Eddington - I thought he'd make a good asshole . Lavenna's face used to be Ilia - you can still see her in there, if you squint.

The rest are from long-forgotten stock photo sources, as I mentioned I much prefer having a no-name face for the role than having a popular actor. Not sure why, I think the actor just brings with them too much baggage.
You don't remember where you got the pictures? I recognize a lot of the people you're using, I just can't put names to any of the faces.

Re: Picture the Novelverse - Characters, Ships and More !

I'd like to see a visualization of Lonnoc Kedair. The only canon Takaran ever seen had a larger forehead and chin than an average humanoid, but in A Singular Destiny, a human mistakes Kedair for an Orion. I can't decide if that's the result of ignorance or physical variation in Takarans.

Ignorance and a lack of observational capability. Rebecca Greenblatt, the person in question, had also never seen an Orion in person, and just made assumptions based on skin color.

To be fair, it is easily done. I use stumbleupon to browse the web quiet often, see an image I like the look of and right-click-save without really thinking and thus have no idea where a lot of images come from.

How about this beautiful drawing of the Aventine-Crew from Rocketdave? http://www.deviantart.com/#/art/Aven...297764348?hf=1

^Interesting. As soon as I saw the rendering of Bowers, my first thought was "That looks like Phil Morris." Which isn't a suggestion for Bowers that I've seen before, the usual ones being Ving Rhames and Michael Boatman. Although that means that two of the Bowers candidates have been in incarnations of Mission: Impossible.

Pocket and Cross Cult should exchange ideas.

I actually thought about Peter Parros (Knight Rider) when I saw the rendering, but I don't know if he's the right age for Bowers.
