It's a long time since I have done a real photo manip and what would be more worthy for it than these two? ;)

Saavik's awesome!

Hey, if you'd like, feel free to read my Star Trek fanfic. It mostly involves Chekov, but Saavik has a small role in it.

I saw this on Spock and Saavik web page. Wow it's beautiful.

Dave,

Can I offer this as a wallpaper on spockandsaavik.com? Would you have a bigger size than the 800x600 so I can offer that too?
davemetlesits's avatar
Yeah, feel free to do so, but please credit me.

And no, this is the only size. I can try and augment it with Photoshop or a dedicated image resizing app.

This is very well done! :D I like how the edges are all blurry, like it's a fading memory. Is it just me, or do their heads and Spock's arm look like they're forming a heart shape?
davemetlesits's avatar
Oh, they indeed form a hearth shape! It was unintentional, but yeah :D

I am in LOVE with this piece!! I'm sure that doesn't surprise you. May I put a link to it on the spockandsaavik.com site?

By the way, you wrote: "Maybe one day I'll do a pic from my fanfic "Daughter of Hellguard, Son of Stars", with Saavik, Spock and little Xon, in the sickbay of the USS Coronation (an old Daedalus class ship they found by accident) with McCoy holding and old Polaroid camera to capture the moment"

That day has come! You started working on it... right?!!
davemetlesits's avatar
Thank you! Yeah, I'd be delighted if you'd link it :D

Hmmm... the "Daughter of Hellguard, Son of Stars" pic... It just slipped out of my head. My brain is filled with Lyra/Will images right now (His Dark Materials, have yo read it?).

I should do the previous scene: Kirk, who helped McCoy with delivering Saavik's baby, is sitting exhausted on a Sickbay chair. Spock turns to him:
-Jim, are you allright?
-Spock... I have done a few wild things in my life but THIS?!

That is so cool and very illogical that Saavik & Spock should be together. :D

Thank you. You mean, logical :D

I like it. Very well done.
davemetlesits's avatar
Thank you :D

I literally had to re-build Saavik's hair using hair brushes to achieve the effect...

it's a lovely piece. The care you took shows in the finished pic.

Thank you very much!

Maybe one day I'll do a pic from my fanfic "Daughter of Hellguard, Son of Stars", with Saavik, Spock and little Xon, in the sickbay of the USS Coronation (an old Daedalus class ship they found by accident) with McCoy holding and old Polaroid camera to capture the moment ("On the count of three, everybody say Logical!")
Or the scene in which Kirk, who helped delivering the baby, is sitting on a chair, totally exhausted and saying to a proud father Spock: "I have done a few wild things in my life but THIS..."

If only I had your manip skills, my job would be so easy :D

Dude! I'd love to see those pieces. :) Or, have you done them and should I go poke around? XD
davemetlesits's avatar
I haven't done them yet. I have to learn to draw first :D
