Re: Protecting

Thanks everyone! The de-blur process is pretty simple. It's done using the stamp tool. Go to a blurry edge, and using either lighten or darken brush mode; paint the blurry portion out until the edges are sharp enough.

Boris, thanks for the comments. I did take some creative license with the image; after all it is a fantasy image. I have to admit the original photo is blurry, especially if you view the larger versions; can't really see it here. But there were no texture to salvage. But had I more time, I could have made textures but this image didn't call for it. The photographer has a particular flavor for dark images, and you know how there are just countless styles out that an image could be manipulated to look. As for her breast, I see you point; I'll keep in mind to give them more breast next time.

I must jump on the wagon with the rest of the crew. This is actually one of the best images I have seen lately. You did an awesome, AWESOME job my friend.
Please share any tutorials you may have on the technique.

Re: Protecting

How did you go about the highlights on her face? I have a good idea but just curious.

Re: Protecting

Can I ask how much you charged the photographer for this retouch/fasntasy composition? Or if not, how much you'd charge typically for something like this, and some ballpark idea of how many hours it took?

Very well done, underlircs. I'm a fan of that sort of enhancement style.

Re: Protecting

Wow, I'm amazed. I want to know her story in the after, but not the before. I'm really floored by your work here and on your website. Do you have a background in painting? Are you also the photographer? I want a biography!!

On a side note, if you told me it' a screenshot from a new photo-realistic CG movie, I'd believe you. This is probably how Beowolf would have looked if they made five years in the future!
