Three tricks i sometimes use GeekSeven:

1. Make a new layer and hand draw in some shadows in black. these can do a lot to make an image look more real. i like to smeer them a bit afterwards. if it goes over the models real skin, thats not a bad thin. then lower the opacity-sometimes like 10 15 percent. i like to mess around with diffrent types of layer styles:screen works good for this. I sometimes do a couple of these. White also works for highlights.

you can work this to match the natural photo but you don't have to be super accurate about it.

2.You mentioned using textures. I like to use two or three. Then lowering the opoacity to agian like 10 11 , maybe smeering a little to take the edge of the fabric.

3. You talked about using the models skin as a layer. i like to do the same thing by putting it on top of the image. but very small. like 5 10 percent maybe as a screen or like a color or value layer. it adds a little pop to the image.

(i like screen layers)

However its a good picture.

I don't think theres a chance in hell they whould make a supergirl movie agian, but yes alison brie is easily the best choice for the part. I do someday she gets a chance to put on a silly costume. she whould do wonders with it.

I didn't much care for Caitlan's ginger looks, although she was an interesting faux Supergirl. Supes was such a gentleman, albeit condescending toward her. That could have been written a bit more dramatically.

But as far as the brunette hair being a part of Linda's disguise that she hasn't shed yet (wig or that charged particle comb thingy)... that works for me.

But my SG's have got to be gloriously blonde. The hair and the costume and those blue eyes are all part of the package.

Don't care for the model. Hips and head a big large implying she's not very tall. I understand those are your model's natural shape. Also SG should be gloriously blonde.

Overall design of the costume is interesting, but her left arm looks way too long.

Thanks for working on this... there are never enough SG picts in the world.

Shadar


C'mon now... you don't think that Caitlin pulled off the ginger Supergirl look in the mini-series?

Maybe the brunette locks are the last things to change as she transforms into Supergirl?

This isn't my work (although I made some tweaks, including shortening the skirt), but at the moment this is my gold standard image for Supergirl. Laura is nearly perfect, if they'd only dressed her in the whole costume as shown here, she'd have been stunning.

Most will recognize this as a tweaked pict from the Smallville TV show.

I could not disagree with you more. Regular women come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and types: in my way of thinking, superwomen should as well. :)

Superwomen perhaps can come in any shape or color.

But not Supergirl, aka Kara Zor El. I can't think of a single DC Comics Supergirl comic book where Kara was depicted as anything but cute, blonde, slender and blue-eyed. Other than when in her Linda disguise, of course.

But Supergirl is not the only woman to have worn the 'S'... Super-Alison is not Kara Zor El, she is, well, she is someone else. She still kicks butt, though.

My sentiments on this subject are very ambivalent. If we are talking about "the" Supergirl, as in Kara Zor-El, I have to agree with Shadar: blonde hair etc. are iconic to her look (although I wouldn't mind to see some variation of her every now and then). Still, if we are talking about "a" supergirl, I have to side with G7.

At this point I think we might have to open another discussion about what are the key traits of "a" supergirl

Body Paint

Not sure if I've posted this before or not... the body paint is real, NOT a photoenhance. Someone must have had fun painting this. Not the greatest artist, but he might have been distracted. Hell, with that canvas, I'd try my hand at painting an "S". And I'm no artist.

Kate Upton's head has been photoshopped onto a Brazilian model's body, but from the neck down, its not a photoenhance.

Hello Shadar. Kate Upton is an excellent choice of being a Supergirl. She has all the traits and looks, blue eyes, blonde hair, sexy, and etc...

Here is a picture of her in Sports Illustrated and another one in lingerie (Hope I not breaking any rules posting this).

Can you please manipulate her pictures shadar? Without changing her eye colors. Only what she is wearing. Like changing it to wearing a Supergirl Uniform. Thank you.

I think the first one already is a bit supergirl-ish, because it must have been freezing but she obviously didn't give a damn ;)

"So you seem to have come to find my fortress of solitude, huh? I know I've been gone for a few months now, sorry about that. I'm not exactly keeping its location a secret, but still, what if I'd turned evil in the meantime? Imagine what I'd do to you guys now. It gets pretty lonely up here, I guess a frustrated supervillain would surely take her time torturing you. I digress - it *does* get pretty lonely up here, and you look quite handsome. How about I take you back to my cozy fortress? I'll make it worthwile, I promise. Your female assistant over there can join in if she wants, I don't really care about the gender of my playmates. Oh, you say she's your girlfriend? Don't worry, I think there won't be a problem. I can be very convincing you know... a few kind words, compliments, positive attention - and super pheromones, of course. You stay right here, wait a minute.[...]Hey, you over there! That's a nice jacket you have, I love the colour! What do you think of my swim suit? I'm wearing it for the first time and I'm not sure if it's maybe a bit too snug. Would you mind taking a closer look? I'm Kara by the way, *pleased* to meet you. What's your name?"...

I wonder why she doesn't just fly to the next town and grab a couple of people there if she craves sex so much ;)

Relative to putting a costume on Kate...I'm the wrong one to ask. I'm a collector of photo enhances and a tweaker (like putting Kate's head on that body-painted model), but I've never mastered painting costumes on. You'll have to ask someone with real talent for that.

A Velorian among humans.

More correctly, per the Aurora Universe lore, the picture below shows a Homo Sapiens Supremis walking next to some Homo Sapiens. (All are human, but one is superhuman).

This picture (a photoshop treatment) captures what for me is the most likely appearance of a Velorian among people of normal height.

This makes hiding in plain sight more challenging, yet many Protectors do hide among the population in the various AU stories.

While unusually tall women are well accepted by society as witnessed by Maria Sharapova and many other female athletes, as well as most fashion models, etc.,
we don't typically run into women who look like this on the street.

Actually, you can rule out most models given that Vels carry more muscle than any model.

So a Vel pretending to be human would be perceived by everyone as exceptionally tall and strong. So that pretty much narrows their choice of secret identities down to athletes.

Many AU writers (especially me) began ignoring this as we wrote stories.

By the way, if the discussion above doesn't mean anything to you, you can still enjoy the picture, retitled A Superwoman among Humans. By the way, the girl is a young Anna Kournikova. The men in green are workers at Wimbleton.

Jennifer Anniston was in incredibly physical condition back in 2008... this is the kind of physique I would expect of a superwoman.
