creative retouch

Hi everyone,

this is a job I have just finished. It consisted of the following:

- Put the mouth of the left photo on the right photo

- illustrate the hair with the model's own hair and the wig pictured on the top right. Later there will be some vector illustrations placed on top of it.

- retouch the image to whitten the teeth and eyes, even the tone of the hair - tending to a reddish cast - place the model on a violet background and convert the image to CMYK for offset printing.

The originals (4X5" chromes) were scanned on an imacon drum scanner


cheers!

ah, ok.

well, i'm a little confused here. what's the 'final' picture we're critiquing here? the one on the left looks like the final, but you say you moved the mouth from the left to the right, so i'm not sure which image to critue.

Craig, I think the left mouth to be transferred to the right mouth is on the right image with the 4 shots in it.

I see the final image as the one with the purple background, which looks terrific, in my view.

Rutherford, your work is fabulous in concept and skill. Personally, I don't go for purple backgrounds, but that's just me.

As a matter of fact, I'm going to have a go at that concept myself! After all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? If I pull it off, I'll post it.

Maureen

PS: Where did you find the hair?

the four shots on the right were used to compose the final shot. i agree with you on the purple background, but it was a clients choice. the hair is made with the shot of the models own hair with some parts of the wig added to incrrease volume.

Oh, I've had a client who insisted on an effect that was just awful (in my view), yet he wanted it no matter what!

What I meant about "where did you get the hair?" is that spead of hair you have laid out on your source board, the hair you added to your model's hair.

Smile wig

hi maureen,

that hair is a wig provided by the producer of the photo session. I used some parts of it on the bottom part of the model's hair.

cheers,


george
