It sounds like you don't have much experience with the tools in question, so your first port of call if you're serious should be to just do lots of basic photo manipulation tutorials, there are plenty on youtube.
The skills you need aren't complicated, its really a matter of knowing the core techniques of photomanip, understanding how to use the tools in your chosen software and having an eye for detail. But there isn't any single step by step method for doing it, because every photo will be different and require a somewhat different approach.
You should probably try to start out doing one with a lot less lighting contrast. And clothed, too. I think bare skin is really hard to get natural-looking.
Thanks for the feedback, I'm using Gimp so I'll try to make it as best as I could! Also I'll try to get cloth chicks. But it's hard trying to find some that are facing the side.
Ugh, no! Clothed is way more difficult than bare skin. Matching patterns, textures, seams, etc. is a huge pain in the ass.
If you aren't going to use the paint method described here (>>4994 >>4995
), you're going to need a super high-resolution base image. Personally, I much prefer the paint method, even though it never looks quite as realistic as a well done non-paint morph.
Since you can't use PS to make some part of an image bigger without also making it blurry, the typical trick is to take the belly/boobs out of a high-resolution picture, then make the rest of the picture smaller. The liquify and smudge tools allow you to blend the original sized parts into the smaller background.
As a bonus, here's a morph I made a couple weeks ago. It's the first one I've done since 2011, but when I saw the base image I knew I had to blow the rust off.
I only have Gimp. So I can't do anything like that. :(
That's no excuse. Just pirate Photoshop CS6 like everyone else does.
I'm not going top pirate it. That's stupid IMO.
Photoshop is what people use, not Gimp. If you want to figure out how to do this using your special snowflake software, you're gonna have to muddle through it yourself sweetie.
I understand, but can you not call me sweetie, makes me a bit uncomfortable.
geez, you sound like a condescending jerk.>>5018
If you use GIMP you can still use the photoshop tutorials, cause the techniques used are the same. GIMP has very similar tools and functions as Photoshop, they are just named a bit differently or have different keyboard shortcuts.
It's like with Windows and Mac where the file browser is called "Explorer" on one and "Finder" on the other, but it's the same thing.
The stupid thing would be paying Adobe's ridiculous software-as-a-service blood money for Creative Cloud.
I know what you're saying and I understand your point, but I rather do something safe you know what I mean right? No harsh feelings?
Yow. Where did you get the belly that you used?
Looks like GIMP's warp tool has finally caught up with PS's liquify tool.
Holy shit, that looks really good.
This is an already pregnant woman, I got the pic from maternity gallery which is a pretty nifty site.
all these recent ones look really good. You can't even tell they're morphs. If I had any criticism, I'd say to go ahead and make them bigger since they look like ordinary pregnant women but, you know, I always want bigger so that's not great feedback haha
Ah yes, the ol baby hercules
If you go this far why not just do original work?
"If you go this far why not just do original work?"
Well, firstly, there's a whole lot of stuff that I DON'T have to paint, which makes it a lot easier than my usual obsessive approach. And secondly, given *chan anonymity, who says I don't?https://msgotu.deviantart.com/
Can someone make some Realistic Prego morphs for me?
