Chaning skin color?

Recommended Posts

So this isn't changing one skin color to another, I'm trying to change a skin color to a dark brown. What I mean by this is, I'm trying to change AOC's skin:

to match the color of this:

I tried for a while trying to match the color. I couldn't get it, using all types of tools in the Adjustments tab, and using the feather object to blend the edges, etc.
The final product, as you can see, does not blend well enough:
AOC_Turd.png?width=348&height=300

Any help?

Try using Adjustments > Color Balance (from my plugin pack)

I tried that earlier, couldn't find the right color. I tried it again once I saw your reply, and I was able to make a light brown, but not a dark brown to match the poop.

Also, I've wondered, are you the owner/maker of paint.net?

Are we really taking this thread seriously?

 

IMHO it stinks (word chosen specifically) of a rather unpleasantly racist joke.

 

Reading about who AOC actually is makes me even more suspicious about that and action should be considerd to remove this thread and OP from this forum ASAP.  That is unless, of course, he can provide a bloody good reason as to why he wants to combine a picture of a cartoon turd with that of a mixed race, controversial US politician.

ooooh.  We can't bandy accusations without proof  

Political satire and racialism are 2 entirely different things surely ?  Freedom of speech etc

 

There's loads of reasons why the OP may want to do it, and not for us to judge why (unless you're right) but if the race card is played frivolously it'll get watered down eventually ?

The last thing we want in this right-wing leaning world is for that to happen

 

From someone who has had his race and nationality insulted/ mocked on more occasions than I can count.  Bothered ?  Nah just laugh ...  it annoys more

As one who has done digital political graphics editorials for years, should I enlist the skills and expertise of my fellow forum members in honing my craft in making political and/or racial memes? Especially when the query boils down to 'what is the best way to make a political figure's complexion look like a turd.

I already feel that this forum is receiving to much spam these days. Is it your contention that they be allowed to soil the forum until they grow weary?

My point was ... actually, is ... we can't censor what other people want to do - even if it is in bad taste ... or perceived to be.  

If someone is being overtly racist - nail them to their cross and burn them ... but if it's political satire and within the forum rules,  none of us have any rights to judge;  we may not like or agree with it,  but we're free to go to another page if it offends.

Not at all - but banning things some may not agree with ?   North Korea and state controlled comes to mind  

 

Views/ opinions - we've all got them and all are entitled to them.  Disagreeing doesn't mean I don't respect them.

I can't and won't say any more than that

Okay then I will leave with this. I see it as slippery slope or Pandora's Box. I have left my editorial graphics off of this forum while I have freely expressed them elsewhere in cyberspace.
