The bro’s need a tan

(No, I’m not “back” – still largely remaining offline lately – just saw these mods on Steam Workshop and fired up the game for the 1st time in a couple months to take a few pics of them. Ha. I might post more in  late Fall/Winter again. Maybe.)

Wallpaper practice

Just, y’know, more cutout practice, nothing special. The Noctis one, the hair had dark blue bleeding so it’s probably the worst hair-wise. Prompto’s hair is actually the easiest to deal with overall, just that top fringe area can be irritating.
Gladio’s pic, yes there’s a piece of him missing, I didn’t notice the greenscreen depth was too close, overlapping/cutting something off. Just pretend he had an accident and is looking out the window of his new house after forced retirement.

 

I did not create any of the backgrounds – since my artistic skill is about zero – random net finds from wallpaper sites.  Photography editing (for me) = working with lighting, color, certain types of corrections, simple layering and selection editing sometimes and that’s it. While I can pen-doodle while talking on the phone, and use/manipulate standard image editor “filters” and such, I can’t paint, draw, 3d anything and my abilities with a digital “paintbrush” using a mouse consists of line drawings that look like they were drawn with crayons by a 4 year old during happy-art time.  After all this practice in terms of finding what “greenscreen” background colors work best for the black-ish and brown/blondish hair, I now need to turn on the game again and take a lot more pictures to work with. Maybe I’ll get some actual ideas in the process. Or I might drift into some other busy work time-waster instead. Like a 150 episode anime. I’m distractable  like that.

Btw, my working .psd files for only the cutouts themselves end up around 30-70+MB, because they’re usually about 3500-4000 pixels tall (screenshot size I use/take is 7680×4320).  I’m not uploading a bunch of those.  >.>   Even the .png versions end up around 5+MB. If I ever get a set of good ones I’ll probably resize them a bit smaller and make them a zip file download.

FF-XIV collaboration, misc

I still find this sort of pictorial type of series amusing. Don’t ask me why, I have no idea.

DO YOU NEED A GROUP HUG?

Ignis refused to wear his new outfit/costume.   (…a mod I use interferes with it – and only this outfit – for some reason)

Noctis and Gladio portraits, just because.

I need to take more of Noctis, but since I’m usually controlling him, when I pause via Ansel he’s usually doing nothing, in the background. 😛
