Anyone have a good reference for the layout of Kirk's quarters?
Here's a start: Stateroom

If you want to work with a 3D model, I've made one for Poser that can be dl'ed for free here; it's not totally accurate (for one thing, it's not wedge-shaped!), and it doesn't have the unique decor of Kirk's cabin, but it should do for 360° reference imagery. The model doesn't have external geometry, though, so it has to be used in Poser or DAZ|Studio (which is free, too!)

Re: An Idea For A Game/Project

I actually made a 3D model of Kirk's head a few years ago. It was, in fact, my one and only foray into 3D character modeling. I never completely finished it but I thought it was a pretty decent likeness, if I do say so myself. After work tonight I'll see if I can dig up an old rendering or two.

In one of her first Trek novels, Diane Carey gave some spot-on descriptions of the distinctive features of Kirk, Spock and McCoy. Kirk's face, she said, was all curves and brush strokes, while Spock's consisted of triangles and McCoy's was built out of squares. I always found those descriptions to be very inspiring when I was trying to draw them.

Thanks, but I'm going 2D with my entry. I appreciate the floor-plan though, help me better lay out the action that will unfold in there.

I should be able to get my entry up by the end of the weekend.

That avatar's very cool!

By the way, if anyone wants to color in my panels, please feel free. My coloring kung fu is not strong.

One shape that really sticks out at me in Kirk's face is he has a very strong 'rounded off triangle' connecting his chin, cheekbones and the center-line of his eyes.

Posted my page. Decided it was 'bout time to kick the plot up a notch, hopefully you'll all approve.

That's an amazing page, Venardhi! I dig your style. And that sure drives the plot a little further. I'm looking forward to how Starscape will follow up to this.

That is one tough act to follow, in terms of both art and storyline!!

I guess we'll all have to learn to draw Kirk and feathered 70s-style hair. Good luck, Starscape!

Re: An Idea For A Game/Project

Venardi, great panel in story and execution! I meant to post earlier on this.

Very interesting. Do you have any ideas on what "The Origin" is, or are you going to keep it entirely secret and let the rest of us figure it out?
