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.

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?

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?

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?!!

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

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

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

Very nicely done. It's very rare to see a guy who's a "shipper", no matter what the pairing/couple is and I find that very refreshing, I must say. Usually the majority of male fans couldn't care less about romance and tender moments and aside from the basic elements of story, plot, etc., they only pay attention to the more masculine aspects of a show/book/movie (such as ships, weaponry and technology in general). Kudos to you for going beyond that. :D

I'm not your ordinary guy. No, I'm not a fag :D But I consider most stuff which they call "masculine" uncivilised and illogical. Life is much more than beer, pizza and guns, it's about friendship, love and family. I know because apart from friendship, I have nothing. My family is in ruins, I am unwanted and unloved, it's only my friends who keep me not falling apart. In my fanfictions, I usually write what I desire, love (being loved and giving love) and family and as I have no real knowledge of these, my stories tend to be nothing life-like.

You know, Sigmund Freud postulated that human beings are based upon two basic instincts, life (reproduction) and death (aggression). As modern civilisation has no place for such extremities, they sublimate into creative channels, be it poetry or martial arts. Looking at my work, I think old Siegmund was right...

Dude, I'm whining... Sorry for the monolouge...

Nice touch using the TOS Spock for the picture...which makes sense because that's the age he would have been due to the accellerated aging effects of Genesis!! Very well done. :thumbsup:

Thank you.

There are three reasons why I used TOS Spock. 1, cuz the basic picruse came from TOS 2, cuz in my STF novellas, the TOS crew (of TWOK era) are rejuvenated and 3, I did not want to make Spok look like a "dirty old man" if you know what I mean? ;)
