Question Please help to match color

Hi all

I attached 3 images.

rt_ref1.jpg (Reference image provided by my client)
rt_ref2.jpg (Reference image provided by my client)
rt_raw.jpg (Raw image provided by my client)

My client wants same color and depth effect to apply on raw image.

I Tried a lot but i am not getting the result.

Please help me to match.

Many Many thanks to retouchpro.com and all users.

Thanks
Chellam

went into hue/saturation and checked colorize and adjusted the color to come close to what the others look like... I see some color on the samples lips, so painted through the mask to bring a sliver of color to the mouth.

I took the previous one I submitted and dropped it over the full sample and lowered the opacity to let a little color bleed through and then added contrast and noise to loo more like your other samples, which are grittier.

Re: Please help to match color

Try Channel Mixer Adj layer with Monochrome checked and set to Luminosity Blend mode. In the R channel drag up the Blue slider and the R&G appropriately reduced. This should make his skin less smooth / more grungy.
Add another Channel Mixer layer to desaturate. Sharpen a merged copy. Adjusting the opacity and playing around with the sliders on the previous 2 layers will allow you to vary the intensity of the effects to taste.
Regards, Murray

I first matched luminosity using a temporary B&W adjustment layer and curves to dodge and burn.

Then it is simple to sample like areas of color and paint in.

Hiya chellam,

Don't know why I tried this, but I couldn't resist for some reason, anyway hope it may give you some ideas.The screen capture tells its own story, hope it's not too shabby.

John

Edit:-- looks a little too red now on posting, ah well.
