    Given that my existing "ongoing" threads here are several years old (without any updates) and many of the image links point to the all but defunct (and "functed up") PhotoBucket, I thought I'd start a new "catch all" thread for my Trek related "junk" with a partial focus upon M'Ress and Caitians in general (duh, well, of course!) and maybe some attempts at "Lower Decks" Dr. T'Ana.

    Let's start with something I slapped together just a week or two ago, my interpretation of a "Mirror, Mirror" M'Ress. It started as attempt to depict the (for the time) somewhat scandalous "MM" midriff baring uniform. It's Oshikai's freebie "retro-skirt" for Aiko 3 that I modified with new "material zones" and accessories.

    Since a few of the "Mirror" counterparts had features distinguishing them from the "good guys", I got the idea to give M'Ress a cyber-eye. well, a goatee like Spock's would not have worked given M'Ress already has far more facial hair than the "evil" Vulcan. ;-) While doing that, I thought about a freebie that could turn a Poser/DAZ figure into Harvey Dent's "Two Face". I looked how the creator arranged the mapping nodes and I realized I could "shrink" the injury to just around the eye. The final effect suggest some sort of "burn" that may have cost M'Ress her eye, resulting in a cybernetic implant.

    Finally, while looking for some gaudy "bangles" and "baubles" for her to wear, I stumbled across an item in my repository, a snake prop coded to "conform" in a coiled fashion upon the base figure. But I didn't want it to be a "boring" earthly python; no, it should be some "over the top" space "critter". So I played with the materials and then positioned the head of a Cthulhu figure to cover the conventional snake head. the fleshy, veiny procedurals helped blend the radically different figures.

    What does this "creature" do? I have no freakin' idea, but I don't think I want to learn!

    Ok Bill, where does she hide her dagger in that outfit? Her boot?

    Being an immense pervert I feel compelled to ask, have you made a version of M'Ress with six boobs?

    Well, Uhura did, so I guess M'Ress would do the same thing.

    To be honest, I didn't even think about the dagger.

    Of course, I could have said that in answer to Q2UnME's question...if I had been clever.

    Eh, sorry, but a single pair is good enough for me. Actually, with "good" M'Ress, I'd depict her with "understated elegance" (translation: itty bitty...well, you know), but this being the "evil" counterpart, she's probably the type to harbor petty jealousy of the attention "bad" Uhura gets, so she likely got a boob job to "compete".

    Meh, I'm pretty much a "one trick pony", but I reason if I am, I might as well hone that "single trick" to the best of my ability. ;)

    M'Ress (thinking): "Hmm, spacious...but spartan. I wonder what I can do to make this place feel...homey?"

    Yes, Lt. M'Ress has just been assigned to the Enterprise and her post as relief communications officer for Uhura. For "shiggles", what do some of you think the Caitian might bring to her quarters to feel a bit more like home? If an idea is feasible (meaning, if I can make or find a suggested 3D asset, I'll try to incorporate it to an "after" type render. I will, of course, note who recommended what.. Just a silly exercise in group participation.

    Your M'Ress looks fantastic! To make herself at home, maybe she'd have a bird in a cage - because she loves them (not to eat, of course - although the bird doesn't know that, and would be terrified!).

    A scratching post, of course.
