Can somebody help me??
This isn't a Revision project. A revision is a complete mod which needs a few changes. This is a work-in-progress which you're asking someone else to finish, so I've moved it to Requests. Recommended followup:
post (or link to) the original image
cropping removes information about the image, such as its white balance
SDT mods are rarely created by merely cropping an image; we usually trace the reference image onto a new canvas
when you save an image in JPEG format, it loses detail. Even if your cropping was perfect, the cropped image would be less clear (i.e. more blurry) than the original.
explain what you want
hair? ears? skin charcode? necklace? earrings? nose shape?
identify the source material, if possible
knowing the character's name allows an artist to search for additional reference images (if necessary)
if you're asking for a custom hairstyle which includes the hair and/or ears, you should consider vector-tracing the original reference image
a vectorized image can easily be converted into a SWF mod
vectors can be resized without loss of quality. This is useful, since we'd need to fit the rabbit girl's hair (and/or ears) onto the differently-shaped skull of the SDT girl.
find additional references, if possible
in this image, the ears appear to be cropped off by the edge of the frame. If you want a RabbitEars.swf mod then you'd need to find another image which shows the full shape and patterns of the ears.
Before we go much further, could you please take a look at the Request Rules?
the images that you've found are quite good (in terms of camera angles, motion/animation details, shading, etc)
the creation of photo-collages is a waste of your time
when you save something in JPEG format, it loses quality
since you're cropping the images manually, there's a risk that you'll make a mistake and chop off important details
cropping the images means that you're destroying information -- about background lighting, white balance, etc
in the unlikely event that an artist decides to create a PNG hairstyle by cropping, they'll need to crop the interior also. So the external cropping isn't a huge help anyways.
please just post (or link to) the original images
at this stage, there's no need for you to put any work into reorganizing or cropping those images. Your job is simply to find them
the original images will be more useful to SDT artists/modders than the collage versions
it's okay to provide a dozen or more references. Please be sure to sort them so that the side-views are at the top of your post
you don't need to worry about genitalia appearing in your reference images; pornographic images are allowed on this board
I may eventually ask you to do some vector tracing (which is similar to the cropping work that you've done) -- but we'll worry about that later
please rehost your reference images (onto imgur, postimage, etc) instead of attaching the files directly into your posts
please answer the questions raised in my previous post (source material, hair vs ears vs face, character name, etc)
Sorry for the troubles, i have read the request rules, and i try to do better.
@wolfkoslov1223 If you get the images sorted out, I can take a crack at the vectors if you feel unable. Very good art for tracing, I'm getting pretty decent with the pen :) Also I am requoting what stuntcock said, this is vital information to bringing this to life, which is very possible! we just want more information.
