Ah, my two favourite characters of the series, my favourite couple and dynamic. Force-user Fane and Mandalorian Talyc. Both have armour and clothes from SWTOR, BUT their heads/faces are from Dragon Age: Inquisition. Characters I created to depict them. So I had to adjust Talyc’s nect here to fit with the body, and I had to change the colour of Fane’s clothes using the Colour Replacement Tool.
Then I put them on a background. Here, they are newly married.
They are not separated by choice, as you may have read, but forced apart when Fane is taken by the Reformed Sith. I had multiple layers here for the arms and legs and the lightsaber of the Sith capturing and pinning Fane down. Again, I changed the colour of what Fane is wearing, a more formal version of his usual tunic. And I added multiple layers of glow from lightsabers that I attached to the various layers of Fane’s face and clothes to varying degrees to give the desired effect.
Talyc bare chested was interesting to do. I use his face from DAI, and stuck it on a body of a stock image photo. However, I had to adjust the lightning, the angles, and blend the necks together using various toold. After that, it was a question of adjusting the lighting.
That’s for his body. As for the background, the original is bight daylight. I had to lower the light, add a lot of magenta and blue, lower saturation, and lower brightness and contrast both to varying degress. And I had to do this differently for the sky than for the grass and tree. It took a while, but it wasn’t complicated.
And I always ensure to remember to add Talyc’s small and subtle scar. It’s there, you might not see it, but when it’s not there, his face just doesn’t look right.
As always, I’m open to feedback.
