Default Photoshop fun with Hans: Maelin Monroe

Lady Maelin recently complained to me why Sara was allowed to be so gorgeous and she had to be contend to be photoshopped into (ugly?) Mona Lisa, or Mona Linda as I dubbed her in an earlier photoshop doodle. And could she be someone more beautiful if I ever had the heart to "shop" her again (free chat translation by me...)

Well, that's a challenge if I ever heard one... So...

This took a little bit more attention because the tricky part was making part of the glasses transparent where the original showed a different background. The starting material was rather dark but the only picture I have of Maelin with more or less an angle of her head I could work with. After that the only thing to do was bleach her teeth a little more (painless and cheap!) and apply some more lipstick

Here's Maelin Monroe for ya



Mind you and not to boast, these are doodles and can be done much better but that would take hours and preferably I would use pictures I myself had taken

Here's the material I started out with (and lovely material it is )





PS: Martin, boobies big enough this time?

Lady Maelin, actually you look better than the real Monroe in my humble opinion, as Monroe's beauty is cold and yours is warm and living.

Hans, you are amazing - just thinking up the ideas and then executing the idea beautifully
