Re: [Need Help]Muscles Retouch

I'm not an expert so I can't really retouch your pix, but have you tried googling "muscles before and after" or something like that? a lot of pros will have sample before&after to show their skills.

Re: [Need Help]Muscles Retouch

Hi Sohaib, welcome to RetouchPro.

Glad to hear that you want to try yourself and already have CS5. I think you could have some fun with these images and learn a lot at the same time.

Without getting too serious about a perfect result I had a quick play and came up with the attached (I know a bit OTT ). If you want to try similar:
  • Roughly select body and hands area using the polygon lasso tool.
  • Copy to a new layer (Ctrl+J)
  • Select transform tool for this layer and drag the top handles out on either side to widen the shoulders.
  • Add a mask to this layer and paint out around the body and chin to reveal the background image where necessary.
  • Make a new Layer combining images (Ctrl+Shift+Alt+E)
  • Now have some fun using the Liquify tool to increase muscles
  • Use dodge and burn layer or direct with D&B tool to accentuate muscles and abs
