Leopard - Evangeline Lilly by OdysseusUT Leopard - Evangeline Lilly by OdysseusUT
Version 2.0 - I've just revised this image a little. Sharpened up a few bits and pieces here and there.

I came across a few cool shots of leopards when I was creating my previous pic [link] and I wanted to use one of them to create this pic of Evangeline Lilly with a few spots.

Very beautiful. It makes me think of a khajiit from the Elder Scrolls series.

I once tried to woo her away from her husband. My mistake, for she was a leopard, and not a cheetah.

i have it... i jus dont know how to do that

This is how I do it:
1) Get a photo of someone you want to manipulate and once you have that, start looking through the stock photos and photography sections for a photo of an animal, but make sure that the lighting conditions and angle that the photo is taken at are similar in both photos. You may need to use more than one photo and take elements of each for different areas of the face/body.
3) Copy the animal's face onto the model's and lower the opacity of the layer
4) Use 'Free Transform' to resize and rotate the animal's face to fit the model's face better and use the liquify tool to make finer adjustments.
6) At this point you may want to duplicate the layer with the model and smooth out her face (essentially make her face flat as if they don't have a nose). The patch tool is handy for this, but simply using the eyedropper and painting in the face works just as well.
7) Change the blending option for the layer that has the animal face. You may want to use multiply to darken the face. You may find it useful to duplicate the animal layer and play around with different combinations of opacity and blending options.
8) Tidy up the picture, use the eraser tool to clean up any left over backgrounds from the animal photo. Use the dodge and burn tools to lighten and darken areas as required. Pay attention to lighting and add shadows and highlights as required.
9) You may need to paint in fur to make the image more consistent. I don't think I've had a single photomanip where I haven't had to paint in some fur. Start off with a base colour, and then add darker and lighter layers. I personally like to use different layers for each colour of fur that I add. To draw the fur, I just use the dune grass brush, though there are far better ones around. You may find it useful to set the brush to paint in the direction/angle of the mouse strokes (you can set this in the brush settings).
10) Paint the lips/eyes/ears/teeth on separate layers as required
11) If the colour/saturation in any part of your photomanipulation doesn't quite match up with other areas, use adjustment layers to get them blending in better with the other layers. This is usually necessary if you're working with several different photos.

I am a little curious about what program you use, and the methods you use to acheive such a fluid work.

Adobe Photoshop CS5

I find a photo of a model I want to manipulate and trawl dA and the net for photos of animals that have been photographed in a similar position and wherever possible - the same lighting conditions.

I then use multiple layers and blending options for different areas of the face and body to get the desired effect. I use the liquify tool to reshape either the model or the animal (usually a bit of both). If the lighting isn't perfect, I often add more layers with particular blending options and opacities or use the dodge/burn tools to make areas lighter/darker.

Fascinating! You make it sound so simple, yet so many struggle to create works even half as good. I'll have to try and dabble with this when I have more time.

Patience is the key really. I usually have to trawl through hundreds of photos to get a single photo that will roughly match up with what I want, however most of the photomanips I make usually require 2-3 photos to be blended in, I have to spend yet more time trawling through photos. If your base photo has some unique lighting conditions or a particular pose/angle, then it can take even longer to find what you need.

I find that I occasionally do need to do a bit of drawing/painting with some brushes as well to create more contrast, fill in some patches or try to sharpen up the image where the liquify tool may have blurred some areas or caused too much distortion.

Your picture is going to be invaluable in my writing :)

I'm glad my work could be an inspiration for more creativity! Dr Stephanie Ly huh? I happen to have an ancient WIP of a model called Stephanie Ly that I never finished.

I love the patterning and the shadows. There is something about the nose that makes it feel disconnected from the upper lip. Perhaps the most minute amount of dark fur to define the edge of the upper lip would cure it? Regardless the overal piece is an instant favorite.
