Oh, they're all excellent, but I particularly love the Cordelia one! :)

thanks darling! she was a spur of the moment one, but i adore playing with cordy (so to speak) ;)

Stunningly beautiful work with these ones. Love the Cordy/Charisma one. Love how you blended it and changed the skin tone of the base. The Tara/Spike one is amazing too, especially looking at the base you worked with.

thank you so much! both were great fun to do - I've had the source shots for a while and just tonight figured out what to do with them.
Tamspikeslovebite on August 19th, 2007 02:30 am (UTC)
all beautiful and so well done!!

These are stunning. I like that you also provide a link to the source image. It's fascinating to see what you've done with each of them.

I think the Tara/Spike is my favorite. Just lovely.
my monkied brain: tara - tarakatekat1010 on August 19th, 2007 12:17 pm (UTC)
it's my secret guilty pleasure to see other people's bases, so i figured i'd show mine (i think in some cases it makes people realize how *little* work a manip can be, but it's still kind of fun to do show and tell)

thanks darling - i have to say that the s/t one is probably my fav out of the bunch too... it just came out well, you know?
yessire: Tara b/wyessire on August 19th, 2007 09:03 am (UTC)
Tara and Spike is great! I love it... I see new wallpare for me.
my monkied brain: spike - deliciouskatekat1010 on August 19th, 2007 02:59 pm (UTC)
yay! so glad you like!! :D
Marymary5958 on August 19th, 2007 10:48 am (UTC)
Beautiful work throughout - you've done a particularly good job matching skin tones. And may I say that I LOVE all these bases as well?

Adding all to my katekat1010 folder!! :-)
my monkied brain: giles - I'm so happy I could Grinkatekat1010 on August 19th, 2007 03:08 pm (UTC)
thank you so much darling! you know my secret with the skin tones is to actually do a color layer with the original over the top of the manip - and then to fudge the face stuff .... it keeps things more true and i'm glad you like!

those are just stunning. All of them. I love the giles and the spara the best i think, *bites lip* and the buffies and the cordy. beautiful
my monkied brain: giles - laughkatekat1010 on August 20th, 2007 01:14 pm (UTC)
thank you so much lady! you picked out the two that are my favs.,.. but they were all great fun to do!
WickedFox: B&Gwickedfox on August 19th, 2007 12:27 pm (UTC)
These are fabu! I love the final Buffy one but the Tara/Spike one is fantastic as well. All are wonderful shots and you did great with the manipping. Your color/tone matching is flawless. Such wonderful work!
my monkied brain: giles - laughkatekat1010 on August 20th, 2007 01:15 pm (UTC)
thank you for the lovely feedback! for some reason i just felt like going on a spree - of course, that maniac spree lasted for a couple of days but hey, it was worth it :D
Miss Firecracker: Eliza Don't carex_spikeaholic_x on August 19th, 2007 01:16 pm (UTC)
Wow, you did an amazing job on all of them. My favorites have to be the first Buffy and the Cordelia one, but they all are gorgeous.
my monkied brain: cordy - kiss me quickkatekat1010 on August 20th, 2007 01:16 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much!! they were a great ton of fun to do - I'm just glad you liked them!

I love the first one, the Cordy one and the Spike/Tara one.

Actual fact, I looked at the Cordy one and thought "That's rather Ditaesque" !!! Excellent!

So pretty!
my monkied brain: buffy - bwsmilekatekat1010 on August 20th, 2007 01:19 pm (UTC)
heee! she is a great source! (although, seriously, no one could have as pure cream skin as her... so cordy of course got sun bronzed instead)

thanks darling for the squeeful feedback! i'm really glad you liked!
EB: Queen of the Social Lepers: *tickle* tara/spike by kateelizabuffy on August 20th, 2007 01:28 am (UTC)
Oh god, Kate! these are so awesome! (although i didn't know you were making them, hint hint)

I especially adore the Spara. <3 You are the bestest Kate ever!

Although, all around, these are wonderful! You can really tell you've grown as a manipper.

Buffy in white is so, so gorgeous. *wants*

Red Cordy makes me drool.

Love you bunches!

my monkied brain: faith - good to be badkatekat1010 on August 20th, 2007 01:21 pm (UTC)
oops, did i forget to send them to my final approval person? *BAD KATE* i must immediately be spanked!

(of course, that only encourages me... when will i ever learn)

i hoped you might like the spara one!! although i'm still not in love with how spike shows up in the picture - but all my playing generated versions that were less appealing than the one that ended up being posted so... at least there's a best of the best.

and YAY for the Buffy-in-white love! I knew as soon as I saw the pic that it would have to be her standing by the window...

as always darling, i adore hearing from you! *massive snuggle!glomp* thanks for the lovely commentage!
Lostgirllostgirlslair on August 20th, 2007 10:36 pm (UTC)
Hey! I meant to comment on these the other day, but you know how it goes! Lovely, sweetie, especially the Cordy one! I like the Giles one, too! And? There is a figure in the background! It may, of course, be a column shaped like a person, though. ::facepalms:: *G* Still, lovely!!
my monkied brain: giles - laughkatekat1010 on August 23rd, 2007 12:03 am (UTC)
thanks darling!

and you're SO right - there's completely a person in the background! i am a huge dork! i think it's supposed to be some kind of ghost or something... the ghosts of giles' haunted past?
sahiya on August 22nd, 2007 09:55 am (UTC)
Oh, these are gorgeous. I especially liked the Spike/Tara one. Thank you!
my monkied brain: s/t - black&bluekatekat1010 on August 23rd, 2007 12:03 am (UTC)
oh thank you! that's definitely my fav of the bunch too.
