Talking Fun Fakes

Dear all,
Here is something a little fun for change, it took several hours to achieve the final result.

I had some problems with finding a similar Font, so after failing i had to completely remove the original Font and type over it with mine to maintain the same proportion and colors.

It was very difficult to find a pose of my face that would blend with the original smoothly, the hair is not mine, so to blend my photo colors with the original involved some playing with the Variations, and Curves options.

One other thing, there was an obvious difference in the texture of both scannned images due to different paper qualities, so i had to add some fake textures and smooth some parts.

Also used the Burning tool to darken parts of my face to get the correct shadows direction.

Have fun :p
Mo

Great job Mo! That's just what we need. Something to lighten the air a little. Obviously, you have an understanding wife if you're married.

Hey Mo,
That's excellent. You did a great job of putting yourself in the scene and making it work. It's definately a fantasy shared by millions of men everywhere.

That is an excellent photo.

I was wondering how you matched the font from the original. (Do they have teams that simply create the font for that specific ad/poster?)

I thought you did an excellent job on how you got the lighting properties to be fairly close.


I'm trying something along the same lines myself.

I used to work for Kellogg Foods and they made some Boxes of Cereal with my picture on it. I'm planning on having my pic taken out and have some family members thrown in.

Personally, I love this kind of thing. It's my favorite things to do in photoshop. If anyone is interested in tutorials for this kind of thing you're welcome to e-mail me and I'll send you the link. The link goes to a site with nudity so I don't want to post the link here.

really nice fake, btw
