Gotta hand it to ya, you're a pretty impressive graphic artist. While we may not always be 100% in agreement on the technical/engineering-type stuff, I can honestly say that you beat me handily in this area! You ought to be working in comics... your ability to capture the general appearance of people is definitely on par with most of the folks working in that field, Alex Ross notwithstanding! I have to admit that your Troi doesn't look much like I see Marina Sirtis, though recognizable when you know the context. But your Tuvok and Riker are perfectly recognizable.

Out of curiousity... what software are you using? (Or is this old-fashioned board work?) I've played around with a couple of things, but I bought the CorelDraw suite a while back and so I'm pretty much committed to using that. Problem is, while I'm damned good at the machine design side (enough to make a very good living doing just that), I can't seem to come up with good graphics (like a ship or a class logo). Just not my forte..



Thanks,

First off, With Troi I just went from memory on the face. With Riker and Tuvok I worked off of stock photos of the actors.

I have been using Adobe Illustrator for my drawing. I use the photo reference on a lower layer (I lock that Layer) and start working on a new layer so the reference photo doesn't get in my way.

My hand drawn versions don't look as close to the actors as I would like them to be. That is why I have been working totally in the digital realm with these. :thumbsup:

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

Ya know, in all honesty, I think I prefer the darker color scheme of your I.S.S. Titan to the lighter color scheme of your U.S.S. Titan (sans the evil-looking wings and Terran Empire logo and other modifications, of course).

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

The fishnets are a nice touch.

But the male duty uniforms dont quite ring true for me. I wasnt a big fan of the Enterprise mirror uniforms either though, so maybe the asthetic just isn't for me.

This is some excellent work. Good Job all around. Those red Hull details look almost like claws, like off a crab or something.

Thanks, I did the paint scheme based on the Mirror NX-01, but the Red is for
it's fleet assignment.

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

It is what she would look like if she had to keep on her toes all of the time.

Plus she would be so vain that she would constantly be lifting, tucking and
enhancing anything to give her an advantage.

Re: I.S.S. Titan & I.S.S. Ares

Here is the WIP of my next Mirror Titan crew member. Lt. Vale. In the
normal Federation Universe she is a commander and first officer of the Titan. But in my Dark Mirror Universe She did not take the first officer posting. She was made a full LT. and is head of the I.S.S. Titan's Security Teams.



I have not finished her hands and weapons yet, but I fiured iI would give you this Teaser.


Enjoy

Nice work, although I don't think Vale's earing doesn't work. How about something that dangles...that, how you say...jiggles when she's "active".

About the mens' uniforms, have you thought about getting rid of the sleeves? Something akin to Kirk's uniform in TOS and the TNG ones from the Mirror Universe novel Dark Mirror.

Great work on these. I especially love the popped collar on Miss Vale.

When I work on Geordi I am going to work on avariant male uniform. One a little more revealing.

As For the Earing on Lt. Vale. If it was dangling, it would be a hazard for her while on duty as the head of security.
