How do I create a new Dark Side Face Transition to use in the White Face with the Scar.
What programs I have to use and how should I do it?
I have here: PhotoShop CS(not very good at it tho), Kotor Tool and Roboius GFFEditor.

If possible please explain in the most detailed way.

Start with the texture PMHC01d, that is his final DS appearance. After that it is really up to you what you do with it in PS, experiment....have fun! When you think you have something cool, throw it into override and check it out in game. After some trial and error I am sure you will hit on something you like. Good Luck!

And where can I find that in the Kotor Tool?

Ok, I looked the file and saw that it is way out of my league..
I dont have a clue on how to MOD that...
If you could put the image here and explain what is what I would appreciate.
For an example, I didnt found the eye on that image...
So, if you could provide a lil more help ok and if you cant ok too I'll try to figure it out myself.

And btw thanks for helping me so far!

This should be what you are seeing in PS

The eye is in the lower left hand corner kinda, you can tell by the yellow iris.

The scar is next to the sideburns, the rest should be self-explanitory.

Well what I have done may be easy to some but it was a great achievement to me :D
I erased his eyes and gave him a nice look if you ask me :D :D
Now I'll think what I'll do next.. I'm just afraid it gets bad :p

Yes he is! :D
So, you liked? It's my first Reskin of a face..
What you think of it? I'm open to all sugestions and opinions!
By the way, very nice powers you made! :D

I like the tats and the eyes. Very DS looking. Keep modding you will only get better and come up with more ideas for stuff. Glad you like the powers. I felt we needed some nasty combo stuff to unleash on the galaxy! I really wanted to provide an alternate force power line to complement the ones in the game.

I guess it's not that good if you didnt noticed that the blue things are veins :P
And the white spots in his head are thing that I tryied to do that Sidious had in Return of the Jedi but it didnt went very nice...
Well it is a bit harder then it looks to do these reskins.
If anyway knows a better way to do veins please explain to me cuz I like to make them in Dark Side Characters.

Take a look at these. Not the tats but the skin color and underlying vein action.

I did this by splitting the RGB chanels and recombining them in paint shop pro.

Nice faces mate, but like I said you ur post when you showed them, I prefer more "ugly" faces to the dark side...
I'm not very happy about the veins in my face tho...
I simply choosed a color and used the pincel with very small point.
Is there a better way to do them?

To be more specific, open up the Fifth Face and see the full transformation to the dark side.
It's amazing all those veins!
I tryied to use the Stamp thing but it didnt went as good as I thought.
Is there any other way to copy these veins or to make some nice looking veins?
