Thanks!

The biggest I have is this one - same size as the film poster I worked from.

I used the Starfleet Bold Extended font for the letters. Made entirely with Paint.NET.
THAT IS SO COOL!

Fantastic work, ITL! Really works. Must have been a lot of work creating the uniform to match.

Not too difficult, really. Copying, pasting, masking, rotating, resizing, blending...

Yeah, but you assembled a sleeve from scratch, getting the folds and shading just right. Very nice. Doesn't look easy to me, but then I'm more of a hack who relies upon being able to find pieces from other images and cannibalize them to fit.

I need to get back into combing through on-line Photoshop tips again... lots of info out there, making it difficult to find what's worthwhile. Any particular tutorials/websites you'd recommend?

I used TOS screencaps for parts of the uniform, that's where the folds came from - I didn't draw them from scratch, or anything.

And as for tutorials - I don't use them much. Most tutorial sites have so much info it's hard to find what you want. My techniques are pretty basic, really. Masking/blending is the main one to Google for.

Previous Archer

I got bored and decided to make an animated-y Archer, but I'm posting it unfinished because I know I'll never finish it. It's even cruder than TAS too. You're welcome.

Edit: Here's a non-terrifying Archer who's eyes won't show up in your nightmares.

Thanks for the tips. I've not yet gotten into masking and blending, relying mostly on layering, blur/sharp, and opacity. I'll have to expand into those. CS6 has some terrific features, with a cool heuristic "object identifier", making it very easy to cut and paste pieces as layers instead of tediously outlining what you want. I'm still on CS2...

Looks like it could be from TAS to me actually, Spanky.

You know I'm a huge fan, Chris3123, but why not use the most well known "S" in all of Trek... SPOCK?!
