star trek the dvd and the art of trek come out tomorrow

WOOOOOOO-WEEEEEEEE can you believe it!!!!  Feels like the movie only just came out in theaters yesterday and now today, November the 17th, both the DVD and the art of book come out simultaneously!!!  MAN_O_MAN how the time flies!!!  I can’t wait to run out and get my copy of both!!!  What an awesome day, I saw some of the pages being put together and holy cow, my work is prehistoric in comparison to what Ryan, James, and Paul put out!!!!  I’m going back to work at A J Bayless  grocery stores in Arizona!!!  HAAAA!  Unbelievable talents these guys are and can’t wait to see all the cool stuff they did.  On the eve of the release, here is a special couple of pin ups to stir the mood and excitement of tomorrows long awaited DVD and art book.  Miss Penny Von Luck did some fabulous Trek shots a few weeks back, and here she is in the rocky mountains of Lake Los Angeles!!!  From Blonde, to brunette, to super hero black your hair color always looks awesome and you’re one of the rare exceptions that can pull it off!!!  Beautiful work, Penny, and thanks for another great day of shooting.

available tomorrow

    The one redshirt we don’t want to see killed!

    Great photography, John, as usual. You really should think about selling a calendar or photo book, as I’m sure it’d sell big time!

    John god bless you for your devotion to the poor, neglected redshirt!

    Seriously, you’ve got a great eye for the much-neglected genre of pinup photography. I agree with Barrie; you really should consider putting a book together…or at least consolidating all of your redshirt pinups in one spot on this site 😉

    It came out over a week ago here in Denamrk (got up early in the morning to buy it!), sadly the special edition version with the deleted scenes and the like has not yet come out though! I swear Denmark is the most Trek unfriendly country in the world!

    Have to agree with Barrie though, thats one redshirt I hope finds her way home! 🙂

    Hey John, do you know if any of your work is in the book? I didn’t care for teh film, but I’m always interested in the concpetual design and art.

    I’m headed out to get a copy of the movie. 🙂

      I got back with 2 copies from Target in tow…they have a special limited supply box set that comes with an 11″, eight piece, snap together model that actually holds the disks. And it’s surprisingly fairly nice quality! An early Christmas present for both me and my daughter. 😀

      I posted photos of the model here, but I forgot to take a pic with the saucer open. I only paid $4 more for this box set, so it was well worth it!! (some pics are a bit blurry, as I only have an old point-and-click that focused very well on the back wall!)

        Cool, dea. Ya know, that lil’ model looks pretty cool, eh. 🙂

        Ooh, I’ll have to add you to my deviant Watchlist. 🙂

        That model does look surprisingly good quality considering it’s only an incentive to buy a DVD. I’m waiting til I have a blu ray player before I get a copy, so I’m guessing by then they’ll be clean out of Enterprises.

        I’d like to take a look at your deviant page, so leave me a message or put it up here! Don’t get too excited about new deviations from me. Nothing to write home about, eh? 😀

        Well I’ve found them interesting so far, and learnt a couple of things. We were never taught about the six categories of light in college. 🙂

        I upload new work quite rarely, but my page is at http://www.snazz84.deviantart.com.

    I’ve got both of these on order from Amazon – should arrive before the end of the week. Can’t wait!

    I got my copy of the movie at just past midnight from my local Walmart and I loved it. Unlike some people, I absolutely refuse to go to movie theaters, no matter the movie, so these past few months of waiting were pure agony but I finally have it. It’s an awesome movie and a great reboot of a franchise that’s needed a reboot for some time, IMO. And thanks for the heads-up on the book, I have to get that when I can spare the cash (I used most of my spare cash for the DVD.) 😀 😀

    And, as you can probably tell from my past comments, I absolutely love your pin-ups and they’re even sweeter when they’re wearing those great retro Star Trek miniskirts. 😀

    Again, nice shots, dude! AND, I would HARDLY call your work “prehistoric.” Quite the contrary really. Just my opinion, eh. I look forward to seeing the book. You are all in quite good company together, IMO, eh. 😉

    John, no offense to Ryan and James, but you have a better aesthetic for starship design. Ryan Church’s Enterprise is not bad, but on a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give it a 7 or 8. James is also a very talented concept artist, but his design for the Narada makes no sense at all. It’s just a giant pine cone in space.

    If you wouldn’t mind, I would LOVE to see your “reboot” concept design for the Enterprise. When I heard of the new movie coming out, I was hoping you were going to design the new Enterprise, because you did such a fantastic job with the 1701-E.

    So, if you think it might be fun, why don’t you design your own rebooted NCC-1701 and post it on the blog for everyone to see? That would be cool I think. You don’t have to of course, I just immediately thought about you back when the movie was released, and was sad I never got to see your take on a NCC-1701 reboot design.

    My wife bought me the book for my birthday last Saturday – it’s absolutely beautiful! Some awe-inspiring images, and great concept art. HIGHLY recommended everyone!

    John, one of the pages shows some small three-views of some of the other ships in the fleet that left for Vulcan:

    U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701,
    U.S.S. Newton NCC-1727 (the two-nacelle, two secondary hull, half saucer design),
    U.S.S. Mayflower NCC-1621 (the two-nacelle Miranda style – has no rollbar in movie I believe),
    U.S.S. Armstrong NCC-1769 (the three nacelled Miranda style),
    U.S.S. Excelsior NCC-1729 (identical to the Armstrong except a strange burgundy colour).

    There’s also a couple of 3/4 views of two of your Perpetual ST Online ships. But re the ships above, do you have any larger versions of the three-views? And are you able to tell us any more about the designs (particularly the strangely coloured ‘Excelsior’)?

    Many thanks if so, and great job by everyone involved – a wonderful book!

    Picked up my DVD on my lunch break today. And it’s just as awesome as I remember it being in the theatre! The first 10 minutes = 75% “Holy @#$%!!!!” to 25% “Pass the kleenex… *sniff*”

    The feature about the score was very cool, too. When you hear and see the orchestra play the classic fanfare, it’s instant chills down the spine.

    John, I know you were a huge Jerry Goldsmith fan — did you get to meet Michael Giacchino while you were working on the movie?

    And judging from the gag reel, Star Trek XII needs at least one dance number. 😉

    I cannot wait!!! This one had to go on the ol’ Christmas list so I’ll have to Netflix it until then. 😦 Oh well, good things come to those who wait, right. 😉

    I barely recognized Penny with her darker hair in those shots! She looks fabulous as always!

    You’re work prehistoric??? I don’t believe that for a second! I swear you have a 3D modeling program inside your head and your hand is the printer!

    Man, I sure would love getting my hands on that tricorder! And the chick’s not bad either.

    John Fab pic Mate, that one red shirt I would not say no to. 😉

    I’m really looking forward to getting the Art book for Christmas (it’s at the top of my list of suggestions to family)! It looked for a while like there just wouldn’t be one, so it was a nice surprise when it got announced.

    Prehistoric? No way! If there’s any difference it might be that the others are more familiar with digital tools, but when it comes down to creativity and drawing ability, those things are the most important.

    Optimize your blog to place so high in this keyword “movies on dvd” is so difficult. How did you optimize your blog?^_^
