Well children if your all sitting comfortably the word for today is Zoomorphic....Now write it down I will be asking questions later....Smile

I cant make up my mind about this, Deb says she loves it, but I cant make up my mind if it works or not, I have'nt really tried anything like this before...so all feedback good or bad would be most welcome..Smile

Zoomorphic
From WikiFur, the furry encyclopedia.

Zoomorphic means having animal characteristics, physical and otherwise. In the fandom, where the exact degree to which a being is human-like and animal-like is important, the term has developed two incompatible connotations.
Zoomorphic is sometimes used to describe beings with primarily or even exclusively animal characteristics, contrastive with typical furry depictions which combine human and animal traits in more nearly equal measure.
Zoomorphic is also sometimes used to describe humans to which animal characteristics have been added, the idea being that the result is still predominantly human, for example, a human with cat ears . This sense derives from the use of two equally valid terms, 'anthropomorphic animal' and 'zoomorphic human,' contrastively.

Many thanks for all the comments on Jack

Cheers Ian

good morning and thankyou...Bravdo..it is just a case of selecting the two images you want to mix, cutting out a section for example the nose and then placing it over the other image and using the eraser tool to start to blent the pics together..There are probably much better or quicker methods but I am using free software ( cant afford photoshops) so it just takes a bit longer Smile

An impressive amount of work has gone into this and you have done well for a first try, so don't feel like you have wasted your efforts.

The hair/fur on the face is working well, but its looking a little all over the place, tricky as I don't really know how to solve something like that. Also around the nose there appears to be a massive highlight that is rather distracting.
Also I think the weakness is in the long black hair - its taking on a very liquid look - as if it were completly saturated in gel (especially clear to me in the sections falling either sider of the face).
A really hard bit of work to get off right and you are off to a good start - keep up the effort!

Very clever work, Ian, even though I think I'd prefer to see Deb pre-morph, so to speak.


Quote: cutting out a section for example the nose

I hope Jack survived the operation Smile

- How does he smell?
- Terrible!

Think I'd better go now...
