Lady in Red
John Eaves has been posting pin-up photos on his blog for some time now.
I have always enjoyed them and the Red Dress series And i thought some of them would work as a pin-up, like those found on fighter and bomber planes during the Second World War.
When John started with the Red Dress series, I knew it would look great if i were to have a pin up on a Trek ship.
I have been looking for a project that this could be done with and after finally deciding to build one I knew I had to put a pin up on it, However, a full starship would be too big and you would not see the pin-up, that meant it would have to go on a shuttle.
I started to look through John’s collection and found a great picture of Meagan Moorman. Here is the original picture.
I took the picture into Photoshop and removed the background.
I then started to play with the different filter, as I was going for a painted look.
My hand drawing skills are not up to the task. Anyway after playing around I still was not getting the look I wanted.
By accident I came across a look that was used for the film A Scanner Darkly, based on the novel of the same name by Philip K. Dick. I liked the look so decided to keep it.
I then added the Starfleet Emblem to the background but I am not sure if it works, so I removed it. I then just added the Miss Megan; I think this works a little better. But we will only know once I place it onto the shuttle.
