I finally have that photo-manipulation done. You can go poke it at [link]
I didn't use a pose from the fighting-pack in the end, but from the sword-poses one, as I changed my mind as to how this deviation was going to look, and that one had an expression more suited for what I wanted.
Eugh, I've only ever done two and I've still got lots of learning to do as the whole photo-manipulations thing is very new to me. I'm going to see if your pictures are mac-downloadable, as I know there's a bug on downloading photoshop brushes on macs, and it might be a problem with picture-packages too, I'll have to check.
