Any "hand model volunteers" out there?
« on: February 19, 2012, 02:50:01 PM »
I attempted making another "hand frame."  My technique is still not perfect.  Will try to attach the PNG and MASK files in a zipped folder, and also a sample.


One problem is that I have ugly hands.  And my camera is not that great either.

If we have any nice-handed photographers out there, please consider donating your image for a SSC mask!

It's that pinky nail.  Too much flesh around it.  Looks like the way Jason's hockey mask is embedded on his head.

Yeah...you need George Costanza.

lol.   That's exactly what I was thinking -- on both accounts!   ;D

I was afraid I crossed the line there, good thing you have a sense of humor!  :-[

If you want to use my hands, feel free!  It's your funeral, though.
here's the problem: I have a good nail/flesh ratio.  But they're not the most masculine looking hands...and they're brown!

They're perfect!!! (digitally speaking.)

Needs to be in a position that can be made into a mask/frame combo though.
Here check out the ones I was tinkering with...
my 3 hand shots.png
The middle one, is the one that got made in to the above mask/frame.
Ideally, a couple fingertips will overlap the transparent area (i.e. the transparent area in the above, is the circular area), to give it a cool 3D look.  But also, the borders around the outside of the transparent part shouldn't be too wide.  The one with me holding the CD cuts off nearly half of the bottom of the screenshot that is getting framed/masked.    In this regard, the image on the left would have been the best choice (I would've cropped out my body and just had my hands in there).  Lastly, make sure you have the flash turned on in your camera so you get plenty of light and color.  My photo on the right has a good amount of color and light, but again, ugly hands :)

PS did you catch the finger-joke?

Post a few if you want.  Folks can vote on the best one, then I'll have you send a hi-rez of it.  
This is fun  hee hee    :D
