Since I posted my cleaner version of the Tali in-game photo, I have had SO many comments telling me things like "She should be gray. She should be purple. She should be blue. She should be more pink. Why does she have fingernail polish?" Frankly, it gets a bit annoying. Although many people do just appreciate that I did a cleaner version the best I could, and like the improvements, I made this compare to show exactly what I did and why.
The in game pic already had fingernail polish. It had a heavy blue tint from the room lighting, and flares on the photo itself (not counting the sun flare in the picture background). Even through the tint and flares, you can still see a human flesh tone. The only thing I added on my own that wasn't in the photo was more accurate hand shape and a purple tint to her hair highlights. I do realize her skin could be more pale and perhaps grayish but I'm no Photoshop pro. I didn't do this for profit. It was just for fun, and for fellow fans that might want a better look at her basic appearance that Bioware was kind enough to show. It isn't perfect, but it is my best attempt at a more clean version of what was shown in the game.
I hope this compare clears up what I was going for and why. Thanks for the views and comments!
