cassy, welcome to RetouchPro

The PSD is from a very talented retoucher named Amy Dresser who also does some Webinars here at RetouchPRO where you can look over her shoulder while she works her magic.

The "carve" layer is Dodge (painting with low opacity white) and Burn (painting with low opacity Black) on an Overlay layer covered with a neutral, 50% gray color, and building up both colors to get the desired effect

Let me make it real clear ... it is NOT my PSD

Dodge and Burn (D&B) has been discussed extensively in the forums (use the search button at the top of the page)

hope this helps

Re: Removing a girls Pigment

A quickie just to see if this is close to what you want..

Used selective masked layers using replace color (hair, eyelashes), D&B (Hair,face highlights), Hue/Saturation (Red & Yellow), Hue/Saturation (Colorize (Eyes)), Liquify (Eyes a bit bigger)

Cave Gal

I think though, that no matter how long the gals were underground they would still use makeup to good effect.

Used selections and gradients, then a bit of hand coloring.

There are a few elements in that look just like what i had in mind. especialy the hair and the eyelashes. Could you maybe explain a bit more how you did these?
The red eye effect is a rather good idea aswell, however I am think about making the eyes look like black marbles.


[Edit: Lol what did you do to her mouth, she looks freaky now :P]

Seeing as this was just a sample I roughed it with the replace color tool with a hide all mask and painted back what I wanted...

lol.. the mouth I have no idea! I went to the layer where it showed up like that and have no idea what was done on that layer,,, I was just playing around on that layer and do not know how it came about... It may be some residual plastic wrap I was experimenting with and missed taking it off the lips

Big black eyes sounds cool.... post your results so we can see what you came up with!

For a quick effect, match colors with some horror pics.

Re: Removing a girls Pigment

I agree; the eyes have to be bloodshot red. Also, I had to paint in the eyelashes/brow using lash brushes since I had no idea how to change the black otherwise without it looking bad.

Re: Removing a girls Pigment

I am going to buy some black marbles at a toy shop tomorow, and then photograph them with the same setup that I used for the model. This way I get te real reflection and ill have some inputs for the eyes.
About the skin, i am going to start using D&B to get it as light as possible, and i am going to try to make the hair and lashes yellow like you did Baldy.. Hope this will turn out nice ^^
Ill show the results asap, thanks all
