I'd bet you can get an older version of PShop (in the 5.x range) pretty cheap.

If you buy it new you're looking at a few hundred bucks. Check ebay for something older (I think they're into the 7.x or 8.x range now... mine is 5.0.2, and it about 5 years old.

Wow! Great Job.

I love how you use Black and White for the Flashback scenes. A Very Nice Artistic Touch. Yor PhotoShop Work looks awsome, I'm Curious about how you worked the Gunship Scenes. I 've been working on Similar Scenes for my Photo Novel and I just can't seem to find a way to make those Scenes very efficiently.

I can't wait to see the next Chapter.

Fritz -

Do you mean the wide shots of the gunship moving through Coruscant, or the close-ups of Koe and Qoz aboard the gunship?

In the case of the former, I just put the gunship on the end of my desk, took a few angles, and then cut them out in photo shop. I copied and pasted the cutout gunship onto various coruscant backgrounds, and then scaled the gunship layer until it looked like the scale was proper.

Next I attempted to balance the levels and color balance for either the gunship or the background (whichever looked less natural). When I got those looking relatively consistent, I blurred the background to account for motion or distance. I added the fog effect (see above) when necessary, and erased as needed.

Hope that answers your question, and thanks!

Hey DD -

I don't have a clue when I'll be able to pull this together. I've gone from busy to mind-numblingly scambling in terms of my workload, and by the time I get home at night I'm beat.

I still want to continue with the PN, but time is tight. I have so little time I haven't even been able to read all the recent updates to my other favorite PNs, and I haven't been able to comment on the work people have been posting in the customs section...

Hopefully things settle down just a bit soon, and I'll be able to get back on the horse. :)
