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!
