*updated production notes*
If I keep getting all these compliments, I'll get a big head! (Not that I mind...)

I keep getting asked the question, so here's a pretty basic answer:

How did I do the Fathom pic? Well... I'll try to explain it. I started with the concept. I wanted to do a Fathom pic that both showed her body and her powers in an interesting way, so I settled on the concept of her in water form swimming in the ocean.

I went into Poser and used the Poser 4 Nude Female model, and played until I was happy with her positioning. I relaized pretty early on that I wanted a real face. There are some things you can cheat away with poser, the face isn't really one of those... I wanted the clear lines and a definite pose, though, so scrounging through hours of source pics didn't appeal to me. For some reason, whenever I see a Fathom comic, I think of Claire Forlani, so she was my first (only, really) choice for the facial model. I scrounged up a decent pic of her and went searching for a base pic for the background. I ended up grabbing a pic that someone rendered in a 3d program of the sea bed.

Next, I set about attaching Claire's lovely face to the poser body, both of which I had desaturated. I matched the greys as closely as I could and then inverted the image to a photo negative. I applied the "plastic wrap" filter to the image with a fairly high highlight strangth, a medium level of detail, and a low level of smothness, to give the "watery" appearance. I duplicated the layer, and set one layer to a "hard light" setting with an opacity of 36%, and the other to a "luminosity" setting at the same opacity. The low opacity and layer settings allow the figure to seem transparent but solid at the same time.

Then I created a new, empty layer with the following effects: drop shadow, inner glow, inner shadow, bevel and emboss. I played with the seetings on the layer, changed the opacity to 74%, the fill to 3% and painted hair on her with a small paint brush using the color white. Unhappy with the lack of "motion" of the piece, I did another layer, similar to the hair layer, but with an outer glow, as well, and the opacity and fill set to 100%.
In this layer, I used a specail brush made of lots of individual dots. I "painted" the air bubles around her in white with it, staying roughly around the frame of her body,  deleting or undoing any I didn't like.  

I added a bit of grain (noise filter) to the background, to make it more photo-real, and then did the logo and signature.

Yes, there are an infinite number of little tweaks I gave the pic all the way through the process, but I can't remember them all without going through each saved version of the image (I save A LOT so that I can remember how I did a particular effect, or go back a step if necessary. Repeating your successes is much easier that way, as is avoiding repeating those elements which are particularly unsuccessful.) This is just the bare bones of how I did the pic.

Whaddya think?

(My original post got screwed up... so I'm reposting, cause the pic isn't there anymore... Here's most of the original text of my post...)

I've long had a pipe dream of being able to manip in photo-realism, and (while still not there by a long shot) this is a big step forward, compared to my older stuff.

I rendered the body in poser, with the 'nude muscle man' figure as the base (of course, I tweaked it a little...) The face is that of David Boreanaz, which is a reasonably close match to Brian Hitch's Cap. I've never liked the idea of Brad Pitt as Cap, or nearly all of the other suggestions that have been made. I think Boreanaz is a suitable compromise of looks and talent. After all... this ain't Shakespeare.

I replicated the costume fairly faithfully. I left out the shoulder patches (cause I really don't like them, even if the Govt. *would* put them on the costume) and tried to make the costume materials as realistic as possible, in terms of what might be used as a movie costume. I know that's not realistic looking scale mail... But I don't think they'd use realistic scale mail. I'd bet they'd use neoprene with a shiny finish, so that's what I shot for.

Fabricated/painted all the clothes with the following exceptions: I frankensteined the pouches and boots, and the wrinkles, too. All the other tidbits are mine: the seams, the wrinkles, the textures, the shadows.

For the shirt, I copied the selection to be textured to it's own layer, desaturated it, and locked the transparency.
I used the gaussian blur filter to take away the detail, and the smudge, blur, color burn, and clone tools (variously, and with various opactities, but never more than say... 30% on any one of them) to remove the nipples. This gave me the base for the textured image. I duplicated the layer again, to have a layer to play with, and used the texturizer function (with the load texture function, I used a texture called scales which comes with Photoshop 7, but I reduced the total .pdf size before I used it, to make the "scales" smaller) to do the rough scaling of the shirt.
I used the fade last effect function to back off the scaling a little bit, then opened the Liquify filter and applied the image to a wireframe I had custom made for the image, to vary the consitency and add a bit of dimension to the scales. They tend to be pinched together in the "lower places" (grooves, curves, etc...) and fuller in the broad, flat, or raised areas of the body, like the meat of the pecs and shoulders.
I pulled the opacity of the layer down a little to help take more of the stark edge off the "scales," blending it with the blurred layer beneath it.
I then duplicated the layer again, filled the non-transparent bits with a solid blue, and set the layer to color. I duplicated that layer again and set the layer mode to color burn. Then I played with the opacities of the two color layers until I was happy with the coloration.
The shield he stands on was made from scratch, using concentric, painted circles, then merging them. I used the free transform:perspective tool, and nudged it into an acceptible angle, then used the plastic wrap filter on it, twice, and faded the plastic wrap a bit on the second time (using Poser 7's fade the last effect feature).

Covered it all in a bit of noice (monochromatic, gaussian) and faded it a bit as well.

Whaddya think?

I must admit, Domino's not a character who I've followed particularly closely in the X-men comics (or X-Force or wherever it was she turned up) but she has an intriguing look, if not character.

Elements come variously from pics of Emily Booth, Lara Croft and various generic female models.
The 'actress' used for Domino is Michelle Rodriguez, of Blue Crush, Resident Evil and The Fast and The Furious fame. She seemed to have the look of someone who could wipe the floor with you and spit on your grave.

I suppose I don't need to tell anyone here this, but drawing people in spandex is hard!  Anyway, here is another of my "casting call" pics.  I like Jennifer in this role because while she's really hot, she could still pull off that sort of matronly look.  I thought about putting her in some sort of background, but I like the idea that she's still casting a shadow, and the white backing helps pull that off.  I am having a lot of fun with this, but I swear, you guys make this look too easy.  Comments?  Critisisms?  I would love to hear either.

Done purely on a whim - when browsing through my X-men Encyclopedia I stumpled across an entry for Hepzibah - The Mephitisoid member of the Starjammers (that's alien cat-skunk person to me and you).

The 'actress' I've cast as Madame Hepzibah is Britanny Murphy (from 8 Mile amonst other things) who seemed to have the right dirty sexuality for a cat person. And the right hair. ;)

A man had a bad case of stuttering. He went to many doctors over the years, but none of them could help him. Finally one doctor said to him "I believe I found the reason for your stuttering".
The man asked, "Wha.. wha.. wha..what is my pro.. pro.. problem."

The doctor replied, "Your penis is very, very large. The weight of your penis is causing a strain on your larynx, and this results in your stuttering. The only solution to this is to perform a penis transplant." The man was really tired of his stuttering, so he agreed to a transplant. Several days later the doctor called the man up and informed him that they have found a suitable donor. The transplant operation was successfully performed and the man could speak without any stutter.

At first he was happy, but after a while he began to miss his large penis, and how the girls used to love it. He finally went back to his doctor and said, "Doctor, I am grateful for the opportunity you have given me to speak without a stutter, but I miss my old penis. Please find the transplant donor and tell him that we have to exchange penises back..."

Because I just -know- everyone on this forum wants to see more semi-naked fat men. Go on. Admit it, you do!

*ahem* Okay, maybe not.

It was mostly created using a number of pictures of weightlifters and bodybuilders and then deforming them in Photoshop with the liquify tool and spherize tool to fatten him up, while trying not to distort the idea he's strong not just obese. Hope it works.
Blob's actor is Michael Badalucco, a semi-familiar face from films like Leon, Summer of Sam, The Man Who Wasn't There and O Brother Where Art Thou?

Went completely over the top with this one and decided to do not just one manip of Rahne of New Mutants and X-men fame, but all three of her forms.
I've attempted to bring some sense to it by doing it in 'comic strip' form. Hope people think it works.

Two hungry cannibals are walking through the forest when they see a man who had recently passed away.
One cannibal says, "Look at this! You start at the feet and I'll start at the head and we'll meet in the middle."

So the two cannibals start eating.

After a half an hour one stops eating, looks up and says, "I don't know about you, but this is great! How are you doing?"

The other cannibal answers, "This is great! I'm havin' a ball!"

The other cannibal says, "Hey, slow down, you're eating too fast!"

This is the second photo manipulation I????????ve attempted.  Some of you may have seen it posted at other websites.  The costume design was inspired by another artist by the name of localhero.  He posted a photomanip (again at another website) with a clean streamline look that I had to copy.

The model is Jamie Pressley (Original Picture found here ).  You can see from the original picture Jamie was facing the opposite direction.  I chose to change her direction to inspire the eye to look to the right ???????? which is the direction that her hair is blowing in (this piece being designed as comic cover you want the readers to be inspired to see what????????s on the inside and seeing as how most of us read left to right I felt it would visual make more sense to have her facing this new direction).

Since I have already release this work for other to see I decided to make changes to this piece to make it unique to this website.  This time around I changed the ???????S??????? on her chest from the original Superman ???????S???????? to the ???????S??????? that Superman wore in Kingdom Come.

Again your comment good or bad are very much appreciated.  I would like feed back.

Well still rereading old comics and back in the day Rogue was defined by her inability to touch or be touched by other people.  Then I found this base pic.  And since my last pic was a kinda run of the mill Rogue I thought the character deserved a better effort from me.  Hope you enjoy.

This is my first post on this site but this is not the first time this piece has appeared on this site (someone else submitted it once before without my permission, but at my request it was taken down)

I felt that if I were going to post it again I should fix it or ad to it as not to make it the same piece submitted before.  I added a glow around Green Lantern.  I also changed the logo in the bottom left hand corner, as well as some other subtle changes.

Please let me know what you think good or bad

M was created using a number of different model's pics - her body is made up from a few images of Christina Aguilera, Dona Speir, Izabella Miko and others. M's actress is Bianca Lawson, probably most well known as Kendra the Slayer from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

The outfit came from various sources, again Christina Aguilera as well as various pics of the cast of Coyote Ugly from FHM magazine if I remember rightly.

This is about the fifth attempt I've had at producing a Husk photomanip - unfortunately none of the others worked out at all. Evidence that not every image works out as you'd hope. I've always liked the character from Generation X to her current run in Uncanny X-men, although it was only when I came to do this photomanip I realised what a gross mutant ability she has.
