Captain Talon by DouglasShuler Captain Talon by DouglasShuler
I've been participating in the beta test of Star Trek Online, and when I'm not exploring the final frontier, I'm doing art of my main character - Myrr'lin Talon. She's the latest in a lineage of Andorians that I've played in various Star Trek games throught the years, and I'm really looking forward to getting to play her in the MMORPG by Cryptic!

You never addressed my concern about her looking too young to be a captain.

This is a beautiful image, don't get me wrong, it's just impossible not to notice her adorably cherubic face. She is really cute, but as a massive Star Trek nerd, such obvious youthfulness can... conflict with the idea of her holding the rank of Captain :blush:

That is part of her backstory, and part of the challenge she has in maintaining command. Oftentimes, she needs to rely on her stern and older Vulcan first officer to maintain a commanding image (playing mediary between Captain and creW).

I wanted to present a different dynamic from the strength Janeway presented, and show someone who was a little softer. Keep in mind, Star Trek Online's lore revolves around junior officers who were promoted to replace their captains that had been captured and assimilated by the Borg, and may of them were perhaps promoted too quickly. Thus, her struggle to grow into the role put on her before she was ready.

I don't really pay any attention to MMORPGs, otherwise I probably wouldn't have had to ask :blush:

If she's a Captain, should'nt she be wearing red?

Possibly, but I ended up placing her in the science division, and blue looks better with Andorian skin (imo).

Beautiful image :D
One small point (and I assume there is a plot reason) is that she looks way too young to be a Starfleet Captain.

outstanding image , any chance you might be willing to share that uniform texture????

I could share it, but it might not do much for you because I always perform a lot of cleanup after the render. Lines rarely match up (due to my laziness), so I fix that stuff in post.

Pretty good seamless 3D work! ^ ^ Most of the time similar images are pretty hack... posed character in BG that dont work... etc etc.
You set this up great! What program modeling do you use? Do you have a link. I've been checking out some 3D pose programs, and wondering what your take on some were.

I use Maya, Studio Max, Poser, Vue, and Photoshop. I do a lot of postwork and repainting, so that helps bring it all together.

Amazing work! I think it is visually fantastic!

Just a thought though. She looks young to be a starship Captain. Not being critical here at all, it's just a thought for the next captain of your next ship. :)

How in the world did you do that uniform? Painted, clothing figure, combination of the two? It looks perfect. She's a fine looking captain, I would like to sbmit my app to be her #1.

It's a simple texture over the V4 Bodysuit. I spent about 2 hours creating it, and now have access to it for infinite re-use. Gotta love 3D =)

What think you of the game? Haven't heard much, other than some of the gameplay mechanics are a little clunky.
