    This time for a Rear Admiral Uniform ($40.00)
    from the Dark Mirror Universe.

    Funny - When I first read the name, I thought it would have been a Mirror-Universe version of Jamie Finney, whom Kirk adopted after he assassinated his arch rival, Ben Finney, in a mysterious ion pod accident on the ISS Enterprise. She was then required to take Kirk's name.

    Then I more carefully read your description! :lol:

    Scary thing, is, I actually do see some young Shatner in the face you made for her. Very well done as usual!

    Thanks, actually I like your idea as well.

    The eyes are actually traced from a head shot of Shatners' from the 60's

    Here is a second batch of concept sketches for possible shuttle for the U.S.S Titan that might
    be included in a 1:2500 kit that is in development. I still need to flesh out the Captains Yacht and Shuttle Bay, but this is a start.

    I'm really liking the two bottom ones as light/heavy shuttle options.

    Me too. I cannot help but think that maybe you should perhaps try doing a version of the shuttlecraft on the left with side integrated nacelles like the one on the right, so that it looks less like the type-9.

    I'm thinking that thus far, the speedboat-like nose is the best of the directions you've headed in.

    Here is a $50.00 Custom Starship Commission created for Craig Verba.
    He wanted a Federation version of one of my designs he saw in one of my Imperial Fleet Images.
    I wanted it named the U.S.S. Sabre and in a desktop wallpaper format.

    I like some of the ideas you have with the shuttles like the off-center deflector (its quirky, I like it), but I think you might want to try a sketch that injects more of the shuttle's mothership into it - add some more Titan-ness to the nacelles, body, etc.

    Just my two cents.

    I like the secopnd shuttle down on the right. It has a shark look to it (especially the grill). One thing you may need to look at is access through the entry hatch. Perhaps a stair step on the hull that covers the nacelle that engages when the door opens.

    YMMV

    Here is the process I go through most of the time while creating
    custom character commissions.
    Stage 1.
    Pick out a character template from my created Blanks.
    Print it out to be used as a under drawing.
    Stage 2.
    With the template as an under drawing I sketch up on a
    light box what I want the character to look like.
    I usually use a non repro blue pencil at this stage.
    Stage 3.
    Place the Line drawing back on light box and ink the character
    Most of the time I leave the face blank as I did with this
    one so I can create the face later in Illustrator.
    Stage 4.
    Scan the Black and White image into the computer and clean
    up the lines in photos. Then I copy the image into Illustrator
    and use the Live Trace Function to get my Vectors created.
    Stage 5.
    I start to import the extras that will be in the image like the phaser,
    Terran Empire Graphics and Grid.
    Stage 6.
    I color the image in Illustrator.
    Stage 7.
    With this character I look for a image of William Shatner from the 60's
    where I traced his Eyes. with the lips I tried to match the off center
    appearance that the reference photo had.
    Stage 8.
    Send to client for approval.

    That is pretty much what I do.

    Thanks, that seems to be the one that everyone like on the forums. I will have to explore that one some more.
