Image Cleaning 2

Update: This thread is done. See http://site.brothels.im/forum/image-cleaning-3 for current work. Thanks everyone!

 


 

So, here's the deal. I spend a lot of time cleaning up images. I'd like some help with it.

I'm going to lost a list of images here, and a description of what needs to be done to them (right click and save-as - they're full resolution, even though they're displayed tiny on the page).

You people do stuff, and post the results back in here. I'll add the cleaned images to the game, and give you credit in the game.

Wend: Hathawa: Antinua: Hilde: (dark brown hair, rather than black)

I'll make new a new post whenever I update this opening. If you see an image back up here that you already did, let me know and upload it again! I probably lost it rather than am intentionally ignoring you.

  • All Images: When done, images should be resized to a maximum dimension of 800px (if larger - don't blow them up!), saved as jpg, and the quality reduced until they're ~100kb or smaller. When removing backgrounds, be careful - the final version needs to still look crisp. No stray white pixels or faded areas.

So, I was going through all the in-game images, and some of the older ones are showing their age. Thus, this slightly nit-picky set of edits - most of these look OK, but I'm trying to do better than "ok" with this game. ;)

I've reattached here a pack of .sta files created by Terryble, helpful for anyone using Photoshop to get the various eye and hair colors right.

I'll be doing more later but I couldn't help but jump at a challenge so I did Clean_0. Let me know if you want me to do another pass of anti-aliasing the selection edges, there's some definite roughness there. I could also knock down the opacity on the bubbles a bit, they look a lot more pronounced on a dark background.

And here are some others I've finished:

As for the Mio/Wend picture it turns out your original there is already pretty artifacty as you'll see here:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/27071125/05eec57ee13287c05075d5e5759...

I can attempt to clean that up at the probable loss of some detail or you can ditch it all together, I'll leave that up to you.

The parts where the bubbles overlap Wend probably need to be darkened - they're very bright, compared to the rest of the image. Though as mentioned below, I'd as soon the bubbles were gone entirely - sorry, should have been clearer on that count.

The other four look good. I think I'll stick with the Wend-exercising picture (your re-colored version) rather than looking for another - it took quite some time to find, and I like the look of consternation she has.

Getting very close to making a new release here - just fixing up the Building management screen and doing a couple more run-throughs to make sure all the content is accessible. Hopefully around the middle of the week.

BlueWinds on

The new smoothed one looks much nicer on my monitor. I'll definitely be going with it.

Terryble on

Oh, and a question:

Regarding Undressing_2.jpg, you say you want the background gone, does that include removing the second girl or only removing the polka-dot background?

BlueWinds on

Just the bubbly background. Keep the second girl.

alrick (not verified) on

on the one with buble do you want the bubble removed? or do you want to keep them? i'll try something tomorow

BlueWinds on

I'd prefer the bubbles gone entirely.

alrick (not verified) on

alright then, full reconstruction ^^

a lot of artifact on this picture though <_< tried to remove some when i was removing the bubble

BlueWinds on

That looks fantastic, thanks.

i didn't saw there was a login/register butto, <_< well it's 1am for me ...

BlueWinds on

I've never gotten Gimp to do decent automatic selection - as much as I like open-source tools, it's just not as good as Photoshop. I did every selection 100% manually until I started these threads. You can see why it's such a help. (^^)

here is a wip of the cat atinua, got an issue with coloring here hair

direct link:  http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/1914/lrhw.png

so far i got ride of every japanese/sfx that was on the picture, but as i do it by reworking those part, it's not really great :/ could have done better with somthing other than a mouse... so do you want me to remove the bubble like on the left of her hair, do you want me to remove the background, do you want me to remove the little line to show she is shivering? i'll retry a coloration after i get myself some sleep it's 4 am for me <_<

BlueWinds on

Hm, image isn't showing up for me and I'm getting a "this file has been removed" on the link. Now that you're logged in here, you can attach files directly to posts if you prefer (I have no preference on where things are hosted, except to mention that attachments here won't get taken down for obscenity or with time).

Bubble, background and shiver-lines are all fine and should / can be left in.

alrick on

I think i know why you can't see it <_<

no porn picture allowed on imageshack -_- might have been removed... man they suck

attached my wip to the post, it should work..., i'll try to do something with her hair.

Attachment: 
alrick on

here is what i could do :/

hope it's good enough, i can still rework it though, just tell me what you want :p

Attachment: 
BlueWinds on

Looks good! I like the softer outline here compared to the black outline below.

alrick on

i reworked the hair a bot s it was less edgie and smoother

Attachment: 
BlueWinds on

This is good, thanks.

I suppose I should eventually figure out what anime this character with the frog comes from (it shows up in both Wend and Hathawa a lot), but on the other hand it may be easier to write original characters when I'm not influenced by the image's origin.

alrick on

hi

here is anal, changed her hair a bit, i was abut to reduce the size of her brest too, but it might have become some risky bisness.

hope you like it that way, i tryed to change here eye a bit, i put the right one  a little higer...

 

Attachment: 
BlueWinds on

Yes, that does look a bit better.

BlueWinds on

A new batch in the opening post. I'm starting to seriously collect images for Hilde, in preparation for making her hireable. I've done several of her images myself, but there are lots more to come soon.

Terryble on

Here's +Oral2: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/27071125/%2BOral2.jpg

If you think that's good here is an updated re-zip of the Statistics Pack with Hilde .stas included. (Now with reference pictures as bonus; a quick start pack if you will.)

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/27071125/Statistics%20Pack.zip

 

Finally, here's the WIP Tired: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/27071125/Tired.jpg

I'll make a new post when Tired is finished and remove this part of this post. Until then you can take a look at how it's going, expect to see some really weird shit.

BlueWinds on

Her hair is supposed to be a dark brown, rather than true black. I'll post some more examples in the OP in just a minute here.

alrick on

i also tried something on tired :/ don't have my tablet with me -_- i knew i should have brought it with me... this one without hair done:/ and also no background: http://img191.imageshack.us/img191/3838/qofk.png

 

then i've done the color changing, but it's a bit harder for me there :/

BTW, what dose maximin means? something like minimun size of picture should be 800px or something like that ?

BlueWinds on

That looks really nice! Her hair should be a dark brown rather than black though - sorry the example image was a bit misleading in that regard. I'll add some more samples in just a second here.

alrick on

just done a second one that way <_< hoppefully changing hair color isn't hard :D

BlueWinds on

Oh, and maximin is just a typo. I'll fix the OP. ^^;;

Terryble on

alrick appears to have Image Cleaning covered better and faster than I can do it so I'll leave it up to them.

BlueWinds on

You still remain the master of recoloration. :)

alrick on

still took me 3hour to do this pick <_< i used to do it in 30-40mn few year ago -_-and i suck at coloring hair, i always get some bright pixel on the edge of every pick <_< and the color are... well rather approximative ><"

Terryble on

Alright, here's my updated effort at +Oral2 along with a new re-pack of the Statistics Pack. The new reference images were a big help.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/27071125/%2BOral2.jpg

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/27071125/Statistics%20Pack.zip

On another note: I was just stupidly annoyed about alrick doing the entire Tired image overnight after I'd done most of it and left a WIP image while I slept. Obviously it doesn't really matter but it just felt like I was 'cheated'. Anyways, I'm over it now. Just one of those things that annoys you even though you know it shouldn't.

alrick on

sorry about that one, i didn't read comment before doing that pic <_< english is not my native langage so it's a bother for me sometime to read a whole thread <_< i'll try to read the whole thing next time, again sorry for that

BlueWinds on

Here's a new set of 8 11 a bunch of images. I'll probably add more later this evening, but this seems like a good place to start.

Antinua and Hilde also have sad faces, but I did those images myself. You'll have to wait for the next version to see them. :P

I've been opting for more and more background-less images because I can re-use them in multiple situations - indoors, outdoors, alone, with a group of people watching, etc.. Since searching for images takes about as much time as writing the scenes, this means more content down the road. Yay grey!

BlueWinds on

I like catgirls too, but I think Antinua would bite my hand off if I tried to make her wear a pair.

alrick on

alright, here is hilde Surprised 0 it's a WIP just to know if you like it that way, or if you want me to remove the glasses, the sweet on her cheek... whatever you want, i'll try to do it ... (i would have killed for my tablet on this one <_< )

no background on it. direct link: http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/8509/gauk.png

Terryble on

Hopefully the hair color is okay here in Angry_1:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/27071125/Angry_1.jpg

Hilde's hair is really fucking with me, it's so near black but also has highlights of brown and near yellows. Not exactly an easy target.

Thanks for the original by the way, that actually allowed me to fix her left ear easily.

As for Underwear_0:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/27071125/Underwear_0.jpg

That damn hand... probably did more damage than good with all my screwing around trying to fix it. Also I threw in a decensor because everything is better without blur. :)

And last for now Underwear (Hilde):

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/27071125/Underwear%20%28Hilde%29.jpg

BlueWinds on

The hair on Angry_1 is good... except I just now realized that it also needs to be made short. ^^;; I can't even blame sleepiness, since I uploaded that one early in the evening.

It's really hard to find images for Hilde. I don't have nearly as much difficulty with the other women.I'll probably have a blog post talkiing about that soon.

The two underwears are good. Removing them from the list now.

Terryble on

Well I've done most of the re-working on the hair but I'm seriously stuck on that right side. 

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/27071125/Angry_1%20WIP.jpg

I think alrick will have to finish it, it'd be much appreciated. I can send you any different versions of it that you need alrick: more hair, less hair, the .psd, whatever.

alrick on

so i read all the comment this time, i'll try to do that tomorow, i'll try with this one picture, psd would not be that usefull as i suck on photoshop, i'm more used to gimp... you've already done most of job, no hair coloration, it will save me something like half time i spent on picture :p

 

alrick on

duuuuu

well too many artifact, i forfeit for the moment, i'll wait this week end when i can get my hand on a tablet, and take more time to redo completly the hair <_< i can't come to something that look good, -_-

and my computer crashed before i saved my job on this one <_<

Terryble on

The list, it keeps growing.

Surprised_3 here:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/27071125/Surprised_3.jpg

Had to use a little Quick Masking to get rid of that white 'glow' effect.

Masturbating_2 here:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/27071125/Masturbating_2.jpg

I really, REALLY like this one although I'm not 100% sure how good the pussy fluid trail looks in this, I had to draw it back in. Also this was a cool little side effect:

My take on the hilde hair rework attached.

*edit: this is my first go at this, so I'd appreciate any comments.
