Can someone help teach me how to change the faction symbol on the following image:
Uhhh, what? Why?
Im trying to digibash him into a version of armada Overload and before you ask why its because i want to okay!
If you can wait until tomorrow, I can do it & walk you through the steps I went by on paint.net (it's like a really simplistic version of photoshop). Don't expect a full blown tutorial or anything (no offense, but I'm far too lazy for that), but it's really not that difficult with a good picture (like the one you have) & if you're just wanting a diffy faction symbol.
If you're going to digibash the picture anyway, why not start with Classics Hardhead?
The colours on onslaught are closer to the ones i want o the final product. Also Hardheads images on seibertron.com do not work for some reason so i cant get a large pic in that same (lack of) pose
what program are you using?
this took me 3 minutes with photoshop. i smudged out the d'con, grabbed an autobot from google images, changed the size, slapped it on. it's literally that simple, you should try it!
But it loos like it is just stamped on the picture not the figure itself
Well to be honest, I think it looks pretty good, especially considering that you'd likely have used a brand new reprolabel sticker (oppose to a faded one).
I'd have basically done the same thing.
that's an awfully long and drawn out way to say "thank you."
what's the difference it's a digibash. BY all means go ahead and do it better.
Take the other shoulder, mirror it, paste on the other side?
The patch tool in Photoshop?
Two ways I could see getting rid of the Decepticon logo.
While you're digi-bashing, might as well practice doing this too.
1. Use the clone stamp to wipe out the shoulder's Decepticon logo. Trial and error this part.
2. Find a good Autobot logo. Remove any background it may have using either the Magic Wand tool or Polygonal Lasso tool, playing with the anti-aliasing and Refine Edge button to get clean edges.
3. Once you've isolated the Autobot logo, select the whole thing using the Magic Wand tool. This'll give you an Autobot-shaped outline.
4. Once you have the outline, position the outline over the shoulder, and copy+paste from the stock image itself. You can discard the actual logo layer.
5. Apply a blending option to this new layer, which right now should look just like an Autobot-outlined chunk of silver shoulder. Check off Color Overlay in the Blending Options, and apply a red color. Use the drop-down menu to see which Blend Mode works best. I think I used "Overlay" for the image above.
Maximo sorry i souded a bit ungrateful its just I expected something more like what Process did. I apologize if i did sound to needy about it
Awesome! Thanks, process! MP, thanks for your help with the problem as well. It's always really cool of you guys to spend your time and effort to try to help others. That will always be appreciated by me
It's ok. It's just that you weren't entirely clear on what the digibash was for, what you wanted out of it... usually people use digibashes as a guide on something they want to create. So simply slapping a symbol on (which is all i said i did) would be adequate. If the digibash WAS the end result, then yeah, I can see that you'd want it to not look like its own layer.
SQ7 - So long as you're around to appreciate it, my work was not in vain
