Trying new Rosalie technique...  
So, the character I find most difficult to manip is Rosalie. The actress (Nikki) naturally has much darker skin & darker hair. This darker complexion, plus the fact that Nikki is a different ethnicity than her character, makes getting Rosalie to look "right" pretty much impossible no matter how hard you try (Summit's still trying to figure out how to get Nikki to look like her character). In addition, Nikki seems to have facial proportions that are so unique that when you try to put her face on another person's head, it looks completely out of wack. So, because I'd love to be able to do more Rosalie manips, but doing so has been such a pain in the ass, I've been looking for an alternate way to go about it and hopefully I've found one: altering the coloring on the original image of Nikki. I tried some tricks on a press shot of Nikki & I'd love to hear some feedback on how you think it went!

Here's the original image & then my colorization:

Alterations I made include:
changing eye color & defining the eye more
changing the lip color
lightening the hair & eyebrow color
'whitening' the skin
removing tattoos
cleaning up the background

Wow, this is a good one. I like how you were able to remove the tattoo, dye her hair and remove the background. It looks so easily done!
