    I love the bear.

    An idea, run with it if you like: start with this frame (minus the bear), but make T'Pring about 8 months pregnant. I'd do it myself if I had any Photoshop skills, but unfortunately my photo manipulation experience has been limited to MS Paint.

    (I'm assuming it is a bear, though just realized it could also be a Sehlat.)

    If it were not so easy and quick to do something like this in Photoshop, I wouldn't bother with it, believe me. I'm an artist, anyway, but would be more effort than it's worth. The real trick is the colour enhancement, trying to get the new element to match up. That and the focus, so it looks like it was shot with the same lense the background used. Depending on the quality of the images, it may be necessary to add grit. The smear and blurring tools work great for the edges, too.

    With uniform mods like that, it's a matter of finding several images that have part of what you need, then putting it all together. There's a lot of copying/pasting/cloning/color matching/warping/perspective involved.

    IreneAdler,

    Awesome! I miss Alyson Hannigan as Willow Rosenberg, whether she be Regular Willow (straight and then gay), Alternate Reality Vampire Willow, or Dark Willow, I love them all. I became a "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" fan earlier this year. I started watching it on the Pivot Channel in January of this year and just finished watching the Season 7 Finale last month.

    Is there any chance you could do some more photo manips of other "Buffy" characters, for example Anya/Anyanka/Aud (Emma Caulfield), or Cordelia Chase (Charisma Carpenter), or Jenny Calendar/Janna (Robia LaMorte), or Spike/"William the Bloody" (James Marsters) and Drusilla (Juliet Landau), or Angel (David Boreanaz) and Darla (Julie Benz), or Xander/Alexander Harris (Nicholas Brendon), or Rupert Giles (Anthony Stewart Head), or Principal Snyder (Armin Shimerman <-- Just kidding about this one, we all know him as DS9's Quark)?

    That first picture of Willow pointing a gun, I think it is from the Season 7 episode "The Killer in Me", where after Willow kisses Kennedy for the first time, Willow starts becoming Warren Meers (whom she killed in Season 6 because he accidentally killed Willow's lover, Tara Maclay, while he was trying to kill Buffy with a gun, which started Willow becoming dark) because Willow's former friend and fellow witch Amy Madison put a spell on Willow.


    Thanks,

    I've considered it, but at the moment I tend to be too busy between writing and making manips for people I write with at USS Talon to do random other ones.

    A Cardassian Internment Camp is no place for a Bajoran to be.

    Here is one I just finished. A quick one at that. I took a picture of the U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt that I took a few weeks ago in Virginia and put some star ships on it. [​IMG]

    Okay, understood. I checked out your Tumblr Webpage. I like your office battle station. It looks like you are a big fan of the Cardassians. I had one of those Microsoft curvy keyboards that I bought to use at work, but after a few hours it started to cause my wrists to ache, so I had to return it back to Best Buy.


    Live long and prosper,

    Update: I just read on your G+ Webpage that you are interested in the conflict between Cardassians and Bajorans. Sorry Erin for mistaking you for a Cardassian fan.

    I actually am a HUGE Cardassian fan. But... I also like Bajorans :-D I tend to like bad guys, I'm a weirdo like that. I also like Romulans and Klingons a lot.

    I've strongly considered a manip of David Boreanaz, if I have time this weekend, I'll see what I can throw together. I have a lot of backburnered projects and I'm trying to be diligent at getting them done... but you know how that goes. The more "complex" mods that I do can take a decent amount of hours, mostly because I'm too stubborn to search for something easy. But that's how I've learned so much about Photoshop, so I guess it works :-D

    One of my more ambitious pieces... Gillian Anderson as a Starfleet Commander.

    I'd like to put in a request...would love to see crew of the show "The Last Ship" done up as Starfleet crew. Maybe even Russian Admiral Ruskov as a Klingon or other baddie. This show has a lot of Trek overtones.

    That's a lovely manip of Gillian Andeson.
    If anybody's taking requests how about Jody Foster as a Starfleet officer?

    IreneAdler,

    That sounds great! I'm curious though, would the photo manip be of David Boreanaz as Angel from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" / "Angel" or as Special Agent Seeley Booth from "Bones" or from some other project he was in?

    It is funny, I first saw David on "Bones" as Booth when it orginally aired. Now that I am a recent "Buffy" fan, whenever I see David on "Bones" I keep thinking I am seeing Angel, strange right?

    My youngest brother's childhood friend lived a few houses down the street from us and he looks like he could be David's twin brother, his name is Brent and I think he was born in 1972 (the same year as my brother). So, he would be about 3 years younger than David, but the resemblance is uncanny. I see him every once in awhile, usually during the holidays. So the next time I run into him, I will ask him if people have mentioned that he looks like the actor David Boreanaz.


    Hope you are feeling a little better,
