Michael 4: such versatility -- what an actor!





Just a grab-bag of images today ... mind you, there's a theme behind them. I was fiddling around with faces, and came up with a good one. This seemed to yell for long hair blowing in a sea wind, and sandals and island wear. The hardest part of it was fiddling the jewelry into place. Result: vacation shots. Looks like the gorgeous gay boy you met while on holidays in Barbados...!

Then, on a whim, I couldn't resist seeing what would happen if you took the exact same character, changed the costume and hair. Here's the result:






I swear, it's the exact same morphing of Michael 4 -- all I changed was the costume and hair, and suddenly ...

The art was barely finished when I got the word from above: "Stop right there, don't change nuthin' else, because that's Curt Gable." So spake Mel Keegan, and I'm delighted to be able to call another of the NARC characters -- the Starfleet pilot who just transferred over -- done! Next thing on the agenda is to pose this character with the Mischa Petrov character (the man you love to hate!) and check out the result. I'll get to this in the next couple of days.

And this one, below, had to render overnight, it took so long:

It's the starship model which is so huge, DAZ won't even open it, so these shots are rendered in Bryce 7 Pro, then tweaked in Irfanview and finished in GIMP. Super-carrier in the Rabelais Drift ... Hellgate. Oh, yeah.
