Drawing Base Request

Hey,I was wondering if you guys would be able to help me out with a small issue I've had for a couple weeks now. For my friend's birthday I'd like to surprise her with a drawing, but I want a picture of her to use as a base.
This is the original photo:

base.jpg

My aim is to get a closeup of her face resting on her hand and propped up by her elbow - I tried to at least give it a shot but I have little experience with Photoshop and, as shown below, it came out horribly :')

I've included my attempt to act as a rough guidance as to what I'm looking for, it doesn't even have to be her own arm as long as it looks like it is and the pose looks somewhat realistic; in other words, I'm perfectly fine with having an arm taken from another photo and placed in this one then having the skin tone and proportions altered to match her actual arm if that's easier. The desired result is something that looks a bit like this:

iseek_goal_setting.jpg

but with the hand on her left, or this:

If it isn't too much of a hassle I'd also like the white strip on her shirt to be removed so that her shirt is all one colour please.


Apologies for the poor resolution, best of luck and I hope to hear from you soon!

Hi, i have to say i think the lack of attemtps it's because the project is just a little crazy (maybe i'm wrong XD), wrong perspective, quality diference, search for and image that adapt it's almost impossible.....etcetcetc

That being said i tried with the two image you posted anyway :biglaff:, just for fun.. knowing that it not look decent for sure. But in case is usefull here it is.

Yeah I figured I wouldnt get many replies considering the nature of my request xD
I greatly appreciate that you gave it a try although I meant for the arm to be moved to the original photo instead of her face moving across to the example photos, I apologise for the misunderstanding or lack of clarity :)

Is there a way I could improve this thread to make it easier for users to help out? it's now been just under 3 months since I first started looking for help with this - on Discord guilds, reddit, other forums, emailing big companies, and now here - so I just feel kinda disheartened now :c

Yes, that's exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for! :cheesygrin:
Is it possible for the arm to look a bit less thin/more realistic though? ^_^

Well, i tried to adjust a little the posture and reconstruct her own hand to a more logic postition.

This is my try.

wow, that's amazing! thanks so much! I'm happy to take this photo as the final product but if it isnt too much of a hassle would it be possible to just edit two very minor details? The first one is for her fingertips to be moved slightly upwards so that they're a bit longer; The second one is that, as requested in my original post, I also need the white strip on her shirt to be filled in so that its the same as the rest of the shirt. Kind regards ^-^
