    Been playing around in Photoshop after seeing pics posted on the inimitable http://www.imagecraft.com

    A result can be seen here:

    http://pics.livejournal.com/scendan/pic/000gg6hy

    Dunno if anybody else wants, but if you'd like yourself pasted onto some kind of appropriate background, I can oblige! Given a day or so, once I'm back at work...

    For perspective, this picture had the background added (duh) and blurred and the saberglow added, plus a certain amount of tweaking, including dropping the saturation and modifying the color balance to blend better, adding a slight motion blur to the forward hand, etc. So, hopefully it all came together.

    Master--Kenobi, I'm tempted to put you on Mustafar...if I can find the right still. Finding the right still can be a pain in the butt, since often there's someone STANDING in it. (In fact, Kenobi is standing in the one I used, but I erased bits of him (heh heh heh).)

    Anyway, just thought I'd offer to all of you in-costume folk, since I've been dorking around part of the evening on this project...

    Ahhh, nice photo, Kai, is that you? It was nice hanging with you a bit at Baycon, and by the way, nice LOTR costumes as well, I snuck in for the tail end of the armor panel.

    As far as putting Kenobi on Mustafar, oooohhhh please do!! We can use him for a BBQ announcement or a poster for summer events, LOL!

    ((in char)) Anytime to see a Jedi in flames = a good day.

    LOL!!!!

    I'll work on a Mustafar pic, pending the ok by Master--Kenobi. :)

    Yeah, the pic was of me. And thanks for the compliment on the armor panel. That was a lot of fun, although sitting in that armor is...er...not the easiest thing to do!

    It was great meeting you! I particularly was amused by the Jedi Sushi Lunch, complete with the dubious lunch-guests of the Emperor and Darth Vader! Too funny.

    Hey..waiting for Siri to get her pics developed. Kai, do you have a pic to use for Mustafar? Or do you want me to see if I can find one?

    Also, the one you sent me of Kenobi getting frisked is great. Why don't you take that one and also have some fun with it? (Just wished it showed my face) apparently I had the proper "Jedi Snit Face" going on at the time.

    Cool links and thanks.

    I had no idea there was an officical Jedi snit face. The things I learn...!

    I have some Mustafar possibilities. I'll dink around and see what I come up with. If you have a good pic, though--of reasonably good size--send it to my email addy and I'll add it to the stockpile of "maybe I could use this!"

    Very Nice Kai! Do the words "I want it!" sound familar?

    Yes, Kenobi, I know, I know. They went in today. Let's see how they come out. I was having problems with my batteries.... Oops. hehehe

    Ah, yes, "Jedi Snit Face" comes from Episode I. Remember the scene where Qui-Gon tries to use persuasion on Watto, and Watto says essentially, "Nice try, no cigar". At the end of that Watto says that Qui-Gon won't find the parts he needs anywhere else either. That's when Jedi Snit Face occurs, Qui gives Watto a rather nasty brief sneering look, the look of a powerful "Mr. Big Shot" Jedi thwarted by a low life used spare parts dealer. I love it, cracks me up every time.

    Not as good as Harrison Fords "We are going TO DIE!!" Snit Face from Temple of Doom, but a close second.

    Hmmm, I'll have to look for that moment. Mostly, when watching TPM, I am engaging in my OWN snit face at the dialogue, and I miss stuff.

    "Jedi Snit Face" "Jedi Snit Face" "Jedi Snit Face" - :p

    Hey, tell me Kenobi dose not do his own version, in the Jedi Temple at the Council when Anakin goes off at Mace. His sooo disapproval look, when he shakes his head "no." Good Job Kenobi. Chuckle, chuckle.

    VERY nice, you look soooooo bad, which is sooo good.

    And the Sith VS Trek thing, you notice they keep LOSING, heh.

    Of course, he IS a red shirt, it is his destiny...

    I intend to play in Photoshop this weekend. I've had a busy week (*cough*playingKnightsoftheOldRepublicIIonthecomputereveryevening*cough*) full of Important Tasks, and have not returned to the Photoshop arena.

    Anyway, though...yes! I have plans! I have ambitions! I shall photomanip until my fingers fall off! MWAH HA HA HA!

    That looked WAY too much like "photo man snip" and that just scared me.

    I'm working on one I found on a friends site...it's of Sid and Kenobi fighting...I have Sid's sword lit, and Kenobi's halflit...inside, not outer glow yet.
    I just have to learn how to add it into a background...lol.

    Kinda jittery for a Sith Lord, aren't you?
