Same Face, New Background (Cosplay & Fanfic Photoshop Experiments)

For the first two images, I just took waht I previously created for the last story and slapped them on new background. This is for Fane and Talyc, who are main characters from my Star Wars The Old Republic fan-fiction series. Fane is Jedi, human. Talyc is Mandalorian, human.

Changing backgrounds also means adjusting lightning and colour for their faces and bodies (armour is separate from the face when working in Photoshop). The background are relevant to the current story, being Tython this time, with actual screenshots I took from recordings where I’m walking around Tython in SWTOR.

For this one however, it was a new screenshot of Fane. For Fane and Talyc I use Inquisitors from Dragon Age: Inquisition that I created specifically for these characters, to have a visual. This kneeling pose was perfect for the knees where Fane kneels before the Jedi Council.

Although, I had trouble with his right arm (on the left side of the image when looking at it). It’s the lighting and shadows. For some reason, when changing the colour and altering the shape of the arm, the variants of light got a bit lost, so I had to improvise some adjustment. I just could not get it to my liking, to eventually I settled. If anyone has some tips, it’ll be handy for future images where this might occur.

His face had some strange colours and I had to play with multiple tools in stages to get the lighting as I wanted it. The background presents two sources of light on each side, I when doing the reflective “aura” thing (as I like to call it), I created for the two colours on each side.

As always, I’m open to feedback.


These images were created for my Star Wars The Old Republic Fan-fiction story, Seekers of Darkness, story 4 in the Darth Shadie / Jedi Eidahs series.
