Well, I think you're more faithful to the source.

 

I just ordered this by the way, looking forward to it.

Since it's more of a question raiser than an out-and-out Spoiler, I thought some of you might like a peek at the construction process behind a single panel of the next photonovel. Not all the shots require this much cut-and-paste (and other manipulations), of course.

(A bit of "recasting" occurs, as you can see, as Kevin Riley is transformed, by cropping, into Pavel Chekov. My own version of those stock shots of the view screen that had Sulu to the left and some extra's shoulder to the right.)

Nice. Must be difficult to get those eye lines to look correct.

Not so much in this case, but fortunately, I have found myself growing quite facile at altering sight lines! Helps a lot, as you can imagine.

Possibly the craziest thing I have done, this time around, occupying much of my morning today, was replacing all the overhead displays on the Bridge, to make sure they were not only consistent from panel to panel, but actually from the correct vintage! (There were two exceptions in the latter case -- a display I could not find a shot for in the appropriate episode, so I used another, and one that was behind figures I was using for my shot, so I left it in place, as it worked consistently.)

Always thought he was a bit of a pirate at heart, but not one of four bits!

Okay, I am enough of a grown-up to admit I don't get it. . . ?

Just a bad pun on your combining bits of four photos to create one glorious "mirror" image.  Extending the pun, I imagine having to combine appropriate multiple images of the same character(s) in shots, while fun in the final product, is slightly more "agonizing" work than usual?

There are days where I wonder if all the ribbing I've taken from you
(regarding my own attention to detail) makes you a hypocrite!
