    Just thought I'd drop this into a thread here for anyone who might not know about it, but is interested in "illustrating" their fan fiction.
    They have a "requests" section where folks will create photo manips of characters for you be it for fan fic or RPGs or just cause it's something you'd get a kick out of seeing.
    Being interested in practicing my photoshop skills, I've joined and done like 20 photo manipulations for folks there.
    Thought some of you fan fic writers might take advantage of it:

    Some requests I've done for folks:

    TOS era Nick Cage with Yorktown patch:
    [​IMG]

    Gabriel Byrne as a Romulan CO
    [​IMG]

    Who in Trek Uniform with sonic screwdriver (I don't know why...it was a request) :vulcan:
    [​IMG]

    Lithgow as a Cardassian Gul

    You can PM me, but you might prefer what other folks on the forum over there would do for ya.
    But I'll give it a shot, if you'd like. :techman:

    I'd love to have Diana Muldaur in a F.C. (Blue) C.M.O.'s uniform as I'm looking to revive her character on "Star Trek: Mandela" as Dr. Kathrine Pulaski an on-again/off-again beau to Kyle Riker (Mitchell Ryan), right before Kyle Riker's death saving his son Will, in the "A Time To...." novel series.

    Hellsgate, do you own the webspace on which those images are hosted? I suspect not. I also believe you have been reprimanded for hotlinking images in the misc forum, so you should know better!

    Please confirm that the webspace is your own or remove the images.

    Ok, I'm removing those images, Hellsgate and issuing you a warning for hotlinking. If you actually own the domain at memory alpha or have some other reason for thinking this isn't warnable, PM me.

    How do you give an actor who never appeared on Star Trek certain alien features, like Lighgow as a Cardassian?

    It's just layering, blending and coloring in photoshop really.
    Here's an Andorian I did for someone's TOS era fan fiction:

    and here's the steps:

    Layers are the key. :cool:

    Thanks.
    Yeah. Fan fic writers almost always have an actor in mind cast for their characters I've found. It's really fun to give them an image of their creations. I'm very new to STPMA, but they're very cool over there and I've been having fun.

    Okay, tell me that’s not Tela Tequila as a Vulcan! I can’t believe I didn’t get that at first glance. :lol: Edit: Okay, it’s Summer Glau... *whew*... better now.

    All right, guys...meet Guls Berat and Speros, from Star Trek: Sigils and Unions! Thank you VERY much to Rabbitooth for creating these for me!

    These two couldn't be more contrasting in personality if they tried.


    [​IMG]

    When it came to Tayben Berat, I kept picturing him as having eyes like Cal Ripken, Jr. So when I went Googling for pictures to give me some ideas of how to describe that, it also seemed to me that the general look and personality fit him enough to where Ripken could actually play Berat, assuming his acting skills were up to the task (those of you who have read the story will see why it could be a slightly more challenging role to perform at just the right levels, so to speak).

    [​IMG]

    OK...next would be Gul Surtak Speros, played by David Spade. Obviously Spade's quite hard to recognize thanks to the age, but that actor was my first thought when I drew Speros for the first time, and the image has stuck. Now, this is Speros relatively calm. Let's just say he isn't always. You may notice that Speros follows the old Cardassian design as opposed to the new one; in Sigils and Unions this is an ethnic-group difference and both designs are legit.

    That's great work. I like that you chose Kate in "motion". Adds a nice authenticity to it. :)
