Chapter 83: Magic of Love

Disclaimer: The pictures of Sam and Cupid's body are not mine. I claim no rights to them. The background came from http://bronze-ambition.net. The poem is The Magic of Love by Helen Steiner Rice. All effects are of my creation.

Author's Note: This is my attempt at some Valentines Day manip making. It was spawned by jinnifanfic's story Cupid, Stupid. This is my first attempt at taking a person's head and putting it on a different body. The body is Karl Urban who played Cupid on Xena. Let me know how I did and any suggestions on improving. Other than that, Happy V-Day, Happy Anti-V-Day or just Happy Hump Day.

EDIT: I played with the edging on his hair some more. It's still bothering me, but... well, let's say Sam's hair can be annoying.

EDIT 2: I played some more with the hair. I think before this I always avoided pictures with hair like this, because I don't remember getting this aggravated before with hair. Hmmm...

If image does not load on first attempt, please refresh your browser page as my hosting location sometimes spazzes out...

Nice manipulation! The skin tones match well between the face and body. The hair looks a bit choppy, though.

I have a love/hate relationship with Sam's hair. Sometimes it works easily for me and others... well, those times make me want to pull out my own hair. That picture of him in particular is one of the worse I've come across... usually if I use it I keep the original background behind it. I just added another version to this post with some touch ups to the hair. Not sure if it's better or not, but I tried.

I'm also testing different Sam heads that match the angle of Karl Urban's head in the original photo. I have one that angles great, but his skin tones don't want to match like this one did... It's always something...

Glad you enjoyed it by the way and thanks for the feed back, I enjoy getting pointer, suggestions and if you have a request let me know. I can't make a promise, but I could try. :-)

Yeah - it looks better. The ends of his hair look...smoother? :)
