Toon Tuesday: Oklahoma!

Oklahoma

Oh What a Beautiful Morning!

Bet you didn’t know that once Captain Pike and Vina were living in paradise for a few years they started a virtual theater group to stave off boredom! (Broadcasting directly from Talos IV!)*

I loved making this.  It started when I came across this image of Vina talking and she looked like she was singing.  Her pink gingham shirt reminded me of the purple gingham dress Laurie wears in Oklahoma!  I was gladly able to change the pink to lavender using the hue/saturation key on Photoshop.   Immediately I had to find a good ‘singing’ picture of Pike in the same scene, and fortunately there it was with Pike staring off in the distance. 🙂  I borrowed Gordon Macrae’s cowboy hat and scarf from this image, and it all gelled together perfectly!
