Captain Kirk Merge Portrait by Taqresu650 Captain Kirk Merge Portrait by Taqresu650
This is my attempt at merging the portraits of Chris Pine and William Shatner as Captain Kirk. I thought of this after seeing a merge portrait of both Prof. Xaviers in X-Men: Days of Future Past. When I started this project, I had no idea how hard this would be. Some may think that I don't have to worry as much about symmetry because the two halves don't have to mirror each other. Honestly, I really do have to worry about symmetry. The hardest part of this portrait was William Shatner. Pine was a piece of cake to draw compared to Shatner. I've never drawn either actor before, but I had a hard time making Shatner look like Shatner. Something always threw me off. I could use the case of my copy of Star Trek for Pine, but finding the right reference picture for Shatner, and making my drawing look right... extremely difficult.

I still like this piece of art though. It really helps to have something like a book or folder to hide half of the drawing (if possible, you could try it on the screen to see how well that works). Proportions worked amazingly well here as well. Overall I like how this turned out. Unfortunately, it got lost and wrinkled up. I didn't find this drawing until very recently.

I do not own star trek, captain kirk, or anything involved with them, this is merely fan-art.
