Awesome work again. Nice background and good job "trimming" her out. Just rounding her shoulder a bit would make it look about perfect. Mine has some imperfections/issues too.

I should be doing other things too (editing my own work maybe) a chance of pace is always fun. :dry:

Maybe some more will join in. Lfan? Daubster? :whistle:

If anyone wants a fair quality scan of the cover - or even the first step to "cutout" let me know. I can send an .xcf file.


I screwed up the quoting on the last post and buried my comment. Here's the correct version:

A great new magazine cover...love the topics. That's one mag I'd love to read.

Here's another idea...you've got a chalet at the top of a Swiss alp with a big balcony that faces a terrific mountain vista. You're standing at the edge, admiring the awesome view while you sip your morning coffee, and up pops a young lady in red and blue, bobbing slightly as she stands on thin air only a dozen feet away.

Do you offer her seat at your table to share a cup of coffee?

OK, here's a second, closer-in version of my last. Time to call it a night, but hopefully this one is the best.

Who knew a picture on a magazine cover could turn into such great artwork from some great artists! I'm jealous of your talent.

If you have a higher resolution scan of the cover, I would love to get that.

I know I'm hopeless on this...but here's one last tweak with eyes I like better, and which are hopefully more "real".

Now I'm done.

The eyes are really an improvement, except the eye on her S shield.

Now it really looks as if she gets more super in every version of your pictures.

Found a couple of resources that might help anyone interested in doing more with this base. I will be travelling soon, so I probably won't get to it for a while.

Click the images to go to imgur for larger versions.

Higher resolution (1200x1632) version of the cover:

You have done half the work for me. I might have to take a chance with a photo manipulation using my limited skills.

I've got a request...I keep struggling with the best way to show the eyes on an uberfemale...and I've gone off the tracks a few times as I've tried different things.

While I expect their eyes will look more dramatic than any normal human, there are still boundaries on reality.

I'd appreciate if you could take a moment and reply to this post, telling me which of these otherwise identical images (posted earlier), differing only in the eye treatment, you think best portrays your imagination of how a superhuman's eyes might look...#1 or #2:

1) velorian.net/anna_sg_mountains2_shadar.jpg

or

2) velorian.net/anna_sg_mountains6_shadar.jpg

This will help in future photo enhances to "keep it real", so to speak.

I still stick with number 2 being better. The eyes are more detailed here and aren't just glowing like in the first version. The problem is that the resolution of the base pic isn't as good, which makes the 2nd version stick out more than it should.

I agree with the general sentiment the second one looks a little more natural.

Shadar I know that you prefer a more unnatural blue look for your Kryptonian/Veloriian/ Arion girl, but sometimes it feel a little "pushed".

Here's an Anna as Supergirl photoenhance (a franken, I would guess) done a long time ago (probably back eight or ten years).

Anna has always been a pretty good model for SG.

Also another, out of uniform, from back in her professional tennis days when she was working out heavier, working on getting stronger. Pict has been slightly enhanced.

I prefer the 2nd one as well. I have to say though, that the eyes are still to sparkling for my taste (just `cause u asked).
I think all the manips in this thread are great, thx a lot!

Given that the topic of this genre is basically fantasy/comic related I would prefer the first manip over the 2nd, so I'm prefering the more "unnatural" look.

Just so that no mistakeing can occure I'm reposting the link to the manip:
