Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

Is it a sign of being an old fart to need names to go with the photos to know who the hell these people are?

Possibly, since I am and I do. I recognized Allison Hannigan, and the girl in the first Orion set looks vaguely familiar, but that's it.

I know next to nothing about photo manipulation, but I've always had a gut feeling that those noses would be difficult to do. Am I right or way off base?

Her name is Susan Coffey. She's a model, but not necessarily someone super famous :-)

The first 3-4 are a bit tricky, especially factoring weird nose angles. I've done a lot more complex mods since, though, so they're pretty "easy" for me nowadays. LOT'S of practice though.

Here's a couple before and afters... this is one of the earlier manips I did (Before and After):




And something a tiny bit newer:

Yes, Susan Coffey. Do a search, you won't be disappointed.

Oh, I'm a big Allison Hannigan fan too, and she makes a cute Bajoran, great work.

Yeah, something about all those parallel lines and shadows, but on the shape of a nose at varying angles to the camera, it just seemed to me it might be tricky. Also, I might have been subliminally influenced by seeing several manipulations over the years that weren't very convincing.

Yours look terrific, though.

I love the bear.

An idea, run with it if you like: start with this frame (minus the bear), but make T'Pring about 8 months pregnant. I'd do it myself if I had any Photoshop skills, but unfortunately my photo manipulation experience has been limited to MS Paint.

(I'm assuming it is a bear, though just realized it could also be a Sehlat.)

Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

If it were not so easy and quick to do something like this in Photoshop, I wouldn't bother with it, believe me. I'm an artist, anyway, but would be more effort than it's worth. The real trick is the colour enhancement, trying to get the new element to match up. That and the focus, so it looks like it was shot with the same lense the background used. Depending on the quality of the images, it may be necessary to add grit. The smear and blurring tools work great for the edges, too.

With uniform mods like that, it's a matter of finding several images that have part of what you need, then putting it all together. There's a lot of copying/pasting/cloning/color matching/warping/perspective involved.

IreneAdler,

Awesome! I miss Alyson Hannigan as Willow Rosenberg, whether she be Regular Willow (straight and then gay), Alternate Reality Vampire Willow, or Dark Willow, I love them all. I became a "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" fan earlier this year. I started watching it on the Pivot Channel in January of this year and just finished watching the Season 7 Finale last month.

Is there any chance you could do some more photo manips of other "Buffy" characters, for example Anya/Anyanka/Aud (Emma Caulfield), or Cordelia Chase (Charisma Carpenter), or Jenny Calendar/Janna (Robia LaMorte), or Spike/"William the Bloody" (James Marsters) and Drusilla (Juliet Landau), or Angel (David Boreanaz) and Darla (Julie Benz), or Xander/Alexander Harris (Nicholas Brendon), or Rupert Giles (Anthony Stewart Head), or Principal Snyder (Armin Shimerman <-- Just kidding about this one, we all know him as DS9's Quark)?

That first picture of Willow pointing a gun, I think it is from the Season 7 episode "The Killer in Me", where after Willow kisses Kennedy for the first time, Willow starts becoming Warren Meers (whom she killed in Season 6 because he accidentally killed Willow's lover, Tara Maclay, while he was trying to kill Buffy with a gun, which started Willow becoming dark) because Willow's former friend and fellow witch Amy Madison put a spell on Willow.


Thanks,

Navigator NCC-2120, USS Entente

Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

I've considered it, but at the moment I tend to be too busy between writing and making manips for people I write with at USS Talon to do random other ones.
