    Yep, four 'shopped areas, there. I enjoyed making that one.

    Or for me, at the moment. It was working fine yesterday, though. Server maintenance, maybe?

    This is amazing ITL - I love how you've got the colours to blend. Is there a larger version of it anywhere?

    Thanks!

    And that's the only size I made - I generally make my work 640 pixels wide to conform to the forum guidelines.

    I like to work as large as humanly possible (for the precision) and only when finished shrink the image to fit whatever forum I need... but I *keep* the original full size Photoshop files so I can go back, if necessary, and tweak them (or use their elements elsewhere).

    I do worked that way at times, but as I have a tendency to keep tinkering with a 'shop once I've shrunk it to the 640px size, the definitive version is rarely the larger one.

    For example - the "train station" picture was shrunk to 640px before I added the futuristic cityscape in the top-left corner and the blurry Spock on the right. I also tinkered with the colours and shading.

    Sloppy, I know. *shrug*

    :D

    ^ I tend not to find too many of the images I want above the 600px margin, which is very annoying if I want to make a wallpaper.

    Hatred of Harry with complete and utter compassion? Wow--that's some major anger packing! ;) You wouldn't know it from the job you did. :) Seriously, it probably would typify Harry's ultimate wish... to be with Seven and completely at ease (at least above the waist--LOL).

    Brilliant! How'd you think that up? I love it... the Kirk era Enterprise crew along with the bearded Mirror Spock commuting by train to New York, via Delta Vega. :lol: I also like the touch of the brainless Spock in the background. ;)

    Thanks!

    I was just looking at some screencaps of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and thought that the train station could do with a bit of multi-era/universe Trek slapped on there.

    :D

    LOL, yeah.. those are some hateful words, and i am not really a hateful person but Harry Kim is a Captain Ass Kisser and he....well.. I just don't want to get into it.. hahahaha :D

    But thank you, it is one of my favorite fiddles I have done. It came out so well and am proud of it. :D

    I know what you mean... sometimes certain scenes trigger associations for me too. But I've never acted on them. I'll have to see what comes up next. ;)

    Yeah, he certainly was... a bit over the top. But still a likable guy in a naive kind of way. ;) If you're up for it, consider modifying his side burn to a "Star Trek point". That would add a really nice touch. :)
