Continuing the “Babes Posing with Shuttlecraft” series:
You should add some blur to that babe to make her match with the rest of the picture more, but otherwise a fantastic manip
Here ya go.
Hey, why not! Nokia and Budweiser still exist in the 23rd Century
tricorder's a nice touch
Nick, this is hilarious! Perfect picture of Annie for it.
Very nice, scotpens. Excellent choice of house and grounds. Who's the woman you selected? She works well with this theme... had you considered putting her on the warp nacelle ledge?
Ha! Great one, Gates. Scully and Mulder could always use a little 24th century help. One observation--how about sharpening Janeway, so her image is consistent with the others? Or, apply a little blur to the others.
Thanks for the compliments. The house, in case anyone doesn't recognize it, is a matte painting from Hitchcock's North by Northwest, combined with a more alien-looking sky and background. The woman is a bit of a Frankenbabe: Naomi Watts' face (though it's hard to recognize at that size) on Faye Dunaway's body.
I tried placing her on the shuttle's horizontal wing, but the pose and angle didn't look quite right. Anyway, I like the way she's sitting on top of the thing, like an auto show model draping herself over a sleek sports car.
Some of the more "spacey"-looking concept cars of the 1950s and '60s would make great Star Trek shuttles -- just close up the wheelwells and add engine nacelles!
Thank you, Backstept, Finn & Gary7.
Done... I hope
Great composite work there, scotpens. I'd no idea where the house came from, only that it has a 60's kind of style to it. Matches well to the period of Star Trek filming. Now that you've mentioned it, I can see the background coming from a different source (very slight contrast difference), but wouldn't have guessed if you didn't say anything. Great touch on the Faye/Watts combo; Faye's face and hair probably didn't have as much of a "car babe" look. I see what you mean--she does work out better resting on the roof. Are those her original clothes and you just added a Star Trek insignia?
Yep, that did the trick Gates. Janeway is a better match now.
@ Gary7: Here’s a link to screencaps of the matte shots from North by Northwest (1959). The house was meant to be in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright.
And this is the source photo of Faye Dunaway, from her first feature film, The Happening (1967).
In her autobiography, Dunaway mentioned that her belly button got almost as much exposure as her face in that film!
Time for another round of Name That Person
No idea about the man. Is the woman Molly Parker?
Nope! Both are involved in the music business.
Separate names with a comma.
