On Saturday, June 2nd, I got a chance of a lifetime to be made over into a Klingon from Star Trek. It was part of a movie make-up demonstration by Marc Deveault of Trauma-Sim, assisted by Tansy Rudnicki, for Gus-Con at the Museum of Natural History in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It was a phenomenal experience which took about 1.5 hours, after which I roamed around the city in character with my friend Halley Davies, who was also my photographer and had a blast! The gallery below show the makeover process and a few modeling shots we got done.
I created these trading cards, or just plain photos for decorative purposes, from the 1920×1200 pixel GI Joe wallpapers I had created from smaller ones I found online and touched up, or created. Then I added some logos, character names and such to make them more like cards rather than wallpaper.
These cards are regular photo size so you could just take the files to wherever you print pictures and print them! I designed them for convenience that way. Of course, they could also be printed on other things like stickers and such, including at smaller sizes like 2″ x 3″. However, I would not recommend printing these on paper above 9″ x 6″, if you still want quality in the image.
These are “fan art”, NOT official products so please do not interpret them as such, try to convince others as such or try to profit from them!
Files are from 0.2 to 1.1 MB to keep the high quality print details. They are 1800 x 1200 pixels if you want to print them on something other than a normal printer, and your printing shop asks you for a file size to see if it’s big enough to do what you want.
These GI Joe and Cobra wallpapers are meant for all models of the iPhone, iTouch, iPod Touch, Palm Pre and just the Blackberry Bold 9000. However, you can also use these as profile pictures in Facebook or other applications that do not require a square picture.
The wallpaper size is 480 x 320 pixels, or similar in ratio to a 6″ x 4″ photo. Apple and Palm went the size ratio of typical photos that people take, whereas Blackberry went with monitor ratios for length and width, for the most part, interestingly enough.
My contribution to these wallpapers was the choice of cropping to get a nice picture, resizing to properly fit the iPhone, iTouch, iPod Touch, Palm Pre and Blackberry Bold screen, with some touch up to remove certain background, adjust punch of colour, etc. The small size of these wallpapers allowed for some beautiful close-up cropping of the monitor wallpapers I only wish I had resolution for to make printable pictures from to share! There are going to be some seriously stunning iPhones, iTouch, iPod Touch, Palm Pre and Blackberries out there with some of these and other wallpapers I plan to be making for them!

You’re on your own to put it on your iPhone, iTouch, iPod Touch, Palm Pre or Blackberry, I’m afraid, cause I can’t justify the need for me to spend money on one so I haven’t got a clue how to do it!
