non-ns art
...but fallout art!

Since there have been news of media regarding Fallout 3 I had a go with ps and some old pictures.

Clickeh

Critisism appreciated, especially on details.

By the way do anyone have a high-res image of a NS marine? Im thinking of doing something similiar.

    The quality of the picture and what's pasted on differs a lot, I tend to resize things a big smaller and Photoshop Anti-Aliases them so they blend a little better.

    Great positioning though. The shadow from the mask could be more realistic.

    Aye, I tried to normalise/change the colors of the whole picture so it didnt look too obvious that the mask is pasted on, gotta work on that.

    Shadows, shadows, shadows, their hard. I tried to manually apply a shadow with brushes but that looked way to edgy so to speak. In this I used "drop shadow" in blending options and adjusted the light source so it atleast looked somewhat like my own shadow plus the sliders for size and distance.

    Very nice Liku.
    The main reason why it still doesn't look 100% right is because the ambient light on the mask doesn't fit with the rest of the picture (look on the helmet for example).

    I bet you would had a easier time if you got to work with the unedited original then adding shadows ontop of my shadows? Nice work though, how did you do it?

    @ Andos, Well, the best would be to make the mask from scratch then light it up accordingly, I guess a simple color replacement wouldn't look right.

    I just took a black brush on a new later and put it in place of the shadows, then edited the opacity of the layer. Used a soft eraser tool to clean up the edges and not make it so "hard."
