Here is the current wallpaper for my computer, along with one I occasionally rotate in.

I loved that last Supergirl wallpaper... by darthbakpao. The sense of 'reality' was extraordinary.

Here's my takes at enhancing that pict to make it more Kryptonian:

Somebody is getting the hot seat in the second version.

Enjoy...

Extraordinary picts... only challenge is that gravity isn't supposed to affect a Kryptonian in the usual ways, and PG carries a bit of muscle and is a little bustier. Those eyes are supposed to be able to look right through a man.

Here are my tweaks to bring perspective to the situation:

Hope I haven't distorted things too much, but my eye is a bit skewed sometimes.

It must be nice to have talent! Damn you are good!

I tried this awhile back with a photo I shot of my wife in her SG outfit.
I shot her in a flying pose and then cut her out. I turned her boots to make it look like she was flying and then a little trimming here and a little digital enhancement there and she was done. I remeber spending 3 hrs on the breast curve and never could get it to look right. A fancy computer does not compensate for not being able to draw a sraight line.
You really need an "artist's eye" to do these things right. I finished it up by scanning an Arizona Highways calender shot of Monument Vallley then placed her in the picture where she just seemed to "look right"

It took me like 25 hrs to do this (learning how and using photoshop on a 400Mhz/64k machine). You did both these touch ups in like an hour.

Well, if I was really talented, I could create original art, not just tweak others.

But there is no doubt that a lot of practice is needed to do this stuff fast. The trick with Photoshop is learning the tricks of the pros. They can do stuff you wouldn't believe in no time.

I know about 1% of their tricks. On a good day.

By the way, here's another pict I came across... original art from Glass House Graphics. WW looks likes she's done for, but SG is looking very strong.
