Turn Head

I dont know if this is possible. I'm new to this site...so hello to all. Any advice would be appreciated. Im trying to restore a picture of my dad when he was a teenager playing a drum. I already did alot on the body, but the face is mangeled. I have another headshot of him at around the same age which i am trying to morph or paste onto the drummer pic. The problem is that the drummer is looking a little to the left, whereas the headshot is looking straight ahead. Any ideas, this may be too wierd.

I would say the head shot is looking slightly right - so you could try flipping it.

If you have CS2 you could also try the warp tool.

Hello and welcome.

Your drumming picture seems very small. If you can get a larger version/more detailed scan it would be easier to match perspective. In the meantime, doe this help. I flipped the picure and changed the perspective but without a larger version of the first, it is hard to match.

I do have a bigger version

I'm just having problems keeping the upload under 100K. How do you guys upload a full screen pic and keep it under 100K? (keeping the details)

I was think of some wierd approach, might be too outthere. But have any of you every used 3dsmax or Maya to morph a face onto a 3d head, then rotate it to get a different perspective????

Im looking through the tips folder now. Alot that i have to learn. Any ideas on the question of using 3dsmax or maya to model a head, and then past a face on it to rotate etc?

I used Squirlz Morph to create a morph halfway between the drummer and the soccer player. However the head is so small that it probably was not necessary.

The second image is the morph result.

I don't know, Spysr. It depends on your skill. As I said, the resulting head is very small so you can get away with a lot.
