Which is odd, as all the skin on show is from the original Troi cap.

Actually, isn't that Val Kilmer's actual neck?

It's just the shadows playing with our eyes, methinks.

Interesting. Hair too? I guess it looks, at least to my eye, that the back of her neck, or sides where it meets the shoulders, feels a little thin, which is why I thought it was too long. If you thickened up her hair where it comes around the back of her head and reaches the shoulder/nape of the neck area, maybe that's what's throwing me off.

Great work Shazam! Troi looks gorgeous. I personally don't find anything wrong with her neck.

Re: The Photoshop Thread, Part IV

I would say the Troi head & shoulders layer is scaled a bit too large, and there seems to be a slightly uncomfortable angular discrepancy between her and the body she's been transplanted onto. I only noticed all this because someone said her neck looks too long and I didn't agree, so I looked more closely. Grafting heads to bodies is one of the hardest things I've done in photo editing, but I'm no pro. Here's an example of one I got almost perfect (see if you can tell me who it is):

It's former Washington D.C. mayor Marion Barry. The angle's not bad, but the head seems a bit large for the shoulders, the lighting's not a close match and the drug conviction/pharmacist gag has a potential political slant, making it kind of out of place in the GTD forum.

When I do a head transplant, I keep the original head visible and scale to match that - though I'm not great at the head transplant thing either.

This is a Photoshop from a VW site called The Samba. It is an infamous car called "Snorkelstang".

Great 'shop, but let's try to keep the images Trek-related.
Thanks!

Avatar I made this morning for someone on another board. Not bad, if I do say so myself, for 30 minutes or less work while waiting on the wife to get out of the shower.
