Thanks man.

Because both Voyager and TNG are my fav Trek shows, TNG/VOY Crossover is one of my fav themes when fiddling pics.

So, just out of curiosity, what happens if you go to my website?
Hmmmm. Apparently your site is blocked at my workplace. That must be it. I'll try again from home tonight!

Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV



I'm pretty satisfied with how the Doctor and Tuvok came out. Finding a decent image of Chakotay that would work was tough... I think I got a pretty good one, except for the lighting being a bit off. I darkened the hands a bit to more closely match his facial complexion. Getting the head size just right is a bit tricky... I try to judge it by matching the facial features scale with the original. The hand size differences make it difficult as well (head should be small for the foreground hand and large for the background hand).

Any suggestions on improvement?

I don't find the lightning problematic. I would suggest that you'd resize Chakotay's head shot a little bit smaller. Maybe Doc's head shot could have a little less contrast in it. Not much, but just a little bit. It could do the trick. Overall, the pic is very good.

My first impressions were that Chakotay's head should be a wee bit smaller, and the doctor seems a little brightly lit. Tuvok is spot-on, though.

Amazing. I'm going to point a Photochopping friend of mine to your work. This one is also amazing.

No body believed Spock when he said they were being watched... they were very, very mistaken.

I like the new look to the original style uniforms.

It's a bit of a problem for me... I do tend to make the heads a little larger than they probably should be (and I've noticed that's a typical problem for those skills in Photoshop are just beginning). I had actually scaled down Chakotay's head before this take. But I'll give it another try. And yes, I didn't spend much time on the lighting for the Doc. I'll see if I can back it off a bit. Thanks for the feedback.

Looks damn real.

Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

Thanks.


There's something else I'm kind of stuck on... introducing Sisko. I can't figure out how to colorize white skin to brown. I assume that there must be a reasonable way to do it. First, I tried taking a copy of the hands, perform a desaturation, then try to introduce a brownish tone. I couldn't get Photoshop to give me brown tones. I also tried simple hue shifts and darkening... wouldn't work. I then thought about trying a color matching from his facial skin tones, but that seems way too tedious. Any ideas?
