I sent some samples to Chris Ryall. He likes it.

That's domino No. 1 of about 437. . . .

Meanwhile, I'm three pages past the flashback, as of this point, and being reminded that I've spent a few days being spoiled. With only a few small exceptions, there was no "building" to do in the flashbacks -- just grabbing existing shots, and once or twice moving a figure to make the panel shape work.

Now I'm back to the story proper, which means just about every other panel requires some degree of building -- as with Kirk on those Delta Vega sets, above.

A particular challenge I've created for myself is that one fairly major scene takes place aboard the pre- "Where No Man…" Enterprise, and that's going to require some serious construction!!

++++++++

I think it's blending very well. About the only thing that kinda sticks out
is the lighting in the last panel, with the incongruous shadows on Kirk
as he stands outside (the Kirk element being taken from an indoor shot,
I presume).

The shot is from "What Are Little Girls Made Of" -- Kirk and Chapel in one of the underground shafts. So there are no shadows falling on him per se, tho since he is, in my scene, walking thru rocky terrain, with spires of stone all around, I had no problem with him passing from light to shadow as he moves along.

I gotta say, that image of McCoy in the lower left on the pervious page
looks like one of "your" faces. I wonder how it would look passed
through a line-art filter!

There are two things in my faces that I have wrestled with for as long as I can remember -- not always successfully! One is drawing the eyebrows too high, the other too long an upper lip. Deforest Kelley has both these as natural features of his face -- which naturally tends to make him look a lot like I drew him!

Here's a peek at our good Captain taking a stroll in the woods. . .

Note that these are NOT lifted straight from "The Apple", tho that was the source for my jungle building!

Wow! Very nice composites.


This might go beyond the limits of photo manip, but this continuity bit
just occurred to me...

Shouldn't Kirk be armed with a phaser for this particular landing? Spock
and McCoy both are.

Sure, he could be wearing concealed a type-one hand phaser, but
Spock and McCoy both have phaser pistols.

Not bad! Light sources match and blend well, you might just have a future with this Star Trek thing.
