Katri Image extravaganza

Assembling and cleaning an image set for a new character is the most time consuming part of adding them to the game. I've finished the first part of that - you can help with the second. :)

Each image I post here needs work, of some form or another. Usually, one or more of these:

  • Background Removed: Everything that isn't a person or otherwise a foreground object should be removed. Replace it with #222222 Grey.
  • Hair / Eyes: The character's hair-and-or-eyes need to be recolored. See these reference images for examples of Katri's hair / eye tones. This is not an exact science. If the image is under yellow/orange light, the exact tone will be somewhat different than if it happens in a dim, moonlight room or at noon. Use your judgement.

Unlike previous threads, I'm going to request full-resolution, uncompressed images. I'll scale them down appropriately afterwards. The images are listed below in no particular order.

For discussion reply to the main thread. For finished images, reply directly to the post containing the image.

As always, your help is much appreciated. :)

Part 1 (1-12 of 35):

Rather than uploading all the images individually, I'm just going to link to the pages I found them on.

I hope you don't mind if I'm a bit picky now, while we're just getting started, so I don't have to be picky later.

Can you make her hair less saturated? I'm aiming for a more "realistic" red-brown tone, rather than completely anime-solid-red. I got it a bit wrong in some of the sample images, I'm sure.

Oral2 and Angry look good. :) Fingering seems to be the original rather than an updated version though - did you put the wrong link in your post?

Terryble on

Woops, I did too, should be fixed now.

Ah, I haven't been keeping up here as often as I should be. I'm happy to see more work to do! :) I'm working on "Sex".

It's super nice to see you back here again.  :)

See what I did there? See what I did? :poke: :poke:

A is good, I'll use that one, thanks. It's darker, true, but mostly I like the less saturated, browner shade of red, more what you'd see on a real person (undyed).

super on

Noted. ;)

Oral and Sad are good (I'm not happy with Sad, but that's to do with the base image, rather than your edit of it).

Can you desaturate Katri's hair in Clean some more though? A duller, more brownish red.

BlueWinds on

A leeetle bit more, if you would.

The new Sad looks better, thanks. Less of a bright outline around her hair. I'll use that one.

Terryble on

I'm working on Spanked, at this point I just have the background left.

BlueWinds on

Thanks, looks good. I hope your family stuff gets better soon. ^^d

Yeah, I like pretty much everything about that picture.

Surprised looks good.

B looks good, a natural sort of shadow from the man's hand.

Terryble on

Turns out the artist used a color very close to 222222 when they did the outline stroke for the hair, I've gone ahead and recolored that entire outline black so it has some contrast to the background. Before I go ahead and do the last pass of touch ups to get rid of the ugly stray pixels and probably fix that hand a bit I'll get you to sign off on the color of the hair. How's this?

That looks pretty good. It does remind me of one thing I forgot to ask - can you also take away the chain coming from her neck? You can leave the collar, just the actual links.

super on

Rain is being worked on.

 

I really like this art style, also: +Oral2 and Fingering (already done by Terryble).

I remember you said you were looking more for the feel of the character and not the art style, but any that you find that are from this type of style would make the work go down easier, if you understand me. ;)

BlueWinds on

Oral2 is nice - I really like the smug "I'm good at this" look on her face. :P

super on

Done. Let me know what you think of the colors, or if you want to see more options.

Edit: [ Pro color strats! https://www.dropbox.com/s/b40v98ao9rnfrud/Rain_B.jpg ]

I tried working with Gimp's Color Balance tool. It allows you to change the hues of the shadows, midtones, and highlights. This gave the hair a bit more depth than what is usually left behind after simply colorizing.

Looks good.

I added about 6 images last night myself (for people other than Katri) to support a new job which will be available in the next version. Wend and Hathawa usually take longer than the others because of their long hair. One of them took forever - strands of really long hair flying everywhere.

Terryble on

I'm working on Nude.

BlueWinds on

Only just noticed this one. I see some of the rough edges you're talking about, but it still looks good enough for use. Thanks. :)

super on

69 is the new one I'm working on.

It may take longer than the others. Perhaps I'll have it done tomorrow night.

BlueWinds on

Looks good, thanks.

super on

Do you still want the rest of the background removed?

BlueWinds on

Nope, it's fine as is.

Underwear

I'll do this, not starting yet though.

Terryble on

I've now updated my link in the above post with the completed version.

BlueWinds on

Looks good. :)

Terryble on

Working on Gangbang. All this censorship and cum flying all over the place make this one a real pain.

BlueWinds on

Someone already beat you to Sex2 - I jush hadn't gotten around to crossing it out yet. Gangbang is good too.

Kitoru (not verified) on

Tried doing it... but it has been a long time since I used photoshop and I wasn't that good before either...

It looks just fine to me. :)

If might request though, can you make her hair a bit more brownish-red? Just reducing the saturation a bit should do the trick.
