All the Andorian shoot photos are top notch, very pro looking stuff ladies!

My favorite classic trek race other than the Vulcans! One of my all-time favorite RPG characters was a TNG-era Andorian I played in middle-high school games (strictly paper and dice not live action to be clear so no costumes).

This could not be any better if I had programmed the holo-deck myself! :flirty:

I have to say, that's the sexiest looking Andorian i've ever laid eyes upon. love this photo, the background is amazing and the make up and costume are uber fantastic! I think Michael Westmore would be proud of your efforts and that's probably the best compliment I can give...

Still loving this... are you aware that your makeup in this series is BETTER than what was ever used in the show? (both TOS, and Enterprise... both shows the makeup was uneven, and not very convincing, but you have it spot on perfect!)

Thanks for the compliment :)

I think the shows need to try harder then, since I am quite lazy with makeup, and it usually takes me less than an hour to do my own blue makeup!
Warflight Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2009  Professional Photographer
I think what they do, is spray it on, and then don't touch up during the shoot. I played a Klingon in one of the movies years ago (the fifth movie) and I remember five hours of make up, and then a lot of standing around before my part (lasted 30 seconds at best) and at no point did they ever update the makeup after the standing around bit before I was on screen.

But that's just a theory is all.

It seems they did a LOT better in the old series with coverage than in "Enterprise" with the Andorians.

Your work is second to none, you have a great attention to detail and an amazing eye for locations.

Outstanding work ladies! :clap:
Looks very canon to the TOS of the 60's. :heart:
The costume is perfect, the hair and skin color is also perfect! :#1:
Right down to the ridges in the antennas. :alien:

You made an old Trekker very happy. :dance::love:

Really, with Antarctica nearby, you'd think they'd make the effort to there for a more realistic photoshoot. Tsk.
Amaniwolf Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2009

ShinyFriction Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2009
This is a great image. It makes me want to draw :D Great costume and pose and a beautiful setting.

I'm curious as to where exactly this Andorian is right now, considering Andoria is a frozen wasteland.

And furthermore why a traditional Andorian outfit would be comprised of chainmail and have a sword unless this is a pre-warp Andorian, which leads into further confusion as to where she is and how she got there.

The make-up and attention to detail thereof is very good, but as for the placement of the character in a contradictory environment, you could have done better.

These lovely ladies live in Australia... Do you honestly think they're going to take a trip to Norway or Canada just to do a photo shoot? Seriously, dude... :O_o:

As for the chainmail on the traditional costume, just take a look at this, from "Journey to Babel": [link]

The outfit is based very clearly on the Original Series which I'm assuming you haven't seen, to make a comment like that - if it's good enough for canon to have an Andorian ambassador and companions in medieval-looking outfits and faux chainmail on a starship, it's good enough for me.
MetarsusDemented Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2009  Student Writer
Well my ignorance then, I was basing things off of what I'd seen in Enterprise.

My apologies, again, a good picture regardless of my previous misconceptions.
sd-stock Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
You want them to find a frozen wasteland?
MetarsusDemented Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2009  Student Writer
Fair enough, it'd probably be hard to replicate those conditions on a limited budget.

Your #12 pic of this subject suits the race you're portraying better than this one, as the water, I presume, looks very much like ice. It's easier for me to believe there's a small, vegetated zone on Andoria than one that looks flat out tropical.

I nitpick about these sort of things, sorry.

Love your attention to detail, especially the make-up and the hair-piece.:nod:

You're a lot better looking than Thelin. Can't fault the costume. And the setting is indeed, Freekin Awesome!
Warflight Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2009  Professional Photographer
GREAT COSTUMING, followed by probably the most PERFECT of settings! FREEKIN AWESOME!
