Amok Time - created by pearlie


Amok Time
Favs: 0SBS: 11Hi-resRank: 14/16Score: 59.1% (0)8269 views

A Trek fan since the beginning, this is the first thing that came to mind. "Amok Time" is the second season premier episode of Star Trek: The Original Series...broadcast on September 15, 1967... written by science fiction author Theodore Sturgeon...

The episode features First Officer Spock returning to his homeworld for a brutal Vulcan mating ritual. It is the only episode of Star Trek: The Original Series to depict scenes on the planet Vulcan - and one of the very few where Spock smiles, if only for a moment, when he learns that he did not kill his friend, Capt. Kirk. (This scene, used for storyboards only, was not published.)

There are several video clips on YouTube, and more info at the last link. (5 years and 903 days ago)

begger, back to the ideas board..you bet me to it. well done author... good choice of colours and use of a challenging source image.

elemare says:

Nicely done! But I must note that the background linked as a source is not the background that appears to have been used in this piece. Or there's a source missing. Either way, you might want to check that, author. Good luck!

author says:

Thank you guys!

Elemare, thanks for the note, I put the wrong link, an image that I downloaded but not used!

avatar elemare
elemare says:

Oh, Author, I suspected that, since I suffer from that tendency CONSTANTLY! I download 8-10 sources, sometimes more, and end up using only 2 or 3 by the end. But it's great for inspiration, isn't it?

Nicely Done!

Nice jobs, the blending of the fire and the bow is really good. However, you can improve your photo by manipulating the background, it should be darker, without the bright sky (since your main focus is the fire, other light sources are misleading) and if possible, the background should be in cold tones such as blue, so your focus will be enhanced. Good luck, author!

if add little glow at the hood near the clasped hands will add more realism.
should make the background woods behind him darker, it may be better

imho.....too colorful for background!

avatar jbillitteri

I so agree with genuine2009

author says:

According suggestions (thanks!) I paled some items, except flames and red flower, kept in vivid colors on purpose - it's a ritual of love...

avatar genuine2009

looks better now....

Christy says:

Author I like what you are going for here....IMO the added elements are still too bright and require some blurring around the edges to help blend because in high res the things look to be "floating" above the ground..You might also want to try cloning some of the background to help with the blending issues..Best of Luck

author says:

Thanks! With suggestions and tips I can improve my work more and more!

Hitch hiker's handbook tip 42: In case you see a warning sign saying that you're about to enter an area where some unknown hostile tribe lives who were so unfortunate to get a curse some centuries ago...then do NOT ignore that warning!

Only source image and photoshop. For the guy in front I looked at 2 references (one to see how a body looks like, other to see how a lifted arm would behave). See SBS how things are done. Please do not forget to check the High Resolution version before you vote.
Thanks.

Edit: improved some spaceranger issues :-) & softened some edges here and there (5 years and 1782 days ago)

great entry

avatar spaceranger

Ahh...guess who's coming to dinner? I like this, just a couple of tweaks... the left arm foreshortening is a little off. His wrist band should be shorter now it looks as long as his forearm. At that extension the triceps would be more pronounced and we'd see more of the lattisimus dorsi muscles. The forearm would be larger in diameter where it's closer to us and get smaller at the wrist. The rim light on the figure (camera left) should extend to the clothing and leg as well. There should also be some reflected firelight on his owl mask as you have on his neck and arm. Very nice work GL!

Great entry, and a very good job... nice imagination.. gl...It reminds me of Mel Gybson's "Apocalypto".

avatar pixelkid
pixelkid says:

I like the color and illustration, but there are a lot of hard edges that could be softer...the hard edges cause a cut/pasted look. The hand on the left of main figure...the fingers have virtually no shadow. Other than that...it's very nice!

Great concept...but and there always is a but. The illustrated portion of your image looks disjointed from the source image. Also the front creatures right arm looks odd. Keep choppin'!
