Re: Color cast on face

You can use a hue and saturation layer and pick yellow in the drop down menu where it says master and pick yellow as your target color and slightly slide the saturation slider to the left to desaturate the yellow slightly and then slowly slide the hue slider until that yellow color starts to look more to your liking…you have to play a little. Of course this will affect the whole image so you will have to make a mask on that layer to hide what you just did and paint in just the area you want to correct with the brush tool…a white brush to paint through the black mask.

A second and easier way to correct your color problem is make a duplicate layer and set the layer blending mode to color and take the brush tool and sample of the skin color that you want to replace the yellow/green with and then paint with the brush over the area you want to fix.

Re: Color cast on face

You have to mask the area where it's green. Some feathering may be necessary. Make adjustment layers to that. It still won't match the body builder. Body builders tend to use tanning and sometimes body oils to create that that look to the skin. The tan emphasizes the deeper areas, whereas the bright highlights come from a very smooth surface with a high refractive index created by the liquids. This means a large percentage of that light is refracted in a way that changes its direction by more than 180 degrees. It gives a very polished look compared to the head. You can get it closer, but I don't think you'll have the texture for a perfect match.

Re: Color cast on face

For something this color saturated and even toning (the body), I would go straight for a paint with a softbrush in Color Mode. The color can't be too bright as it will be overly saturated too fast. Play with sampling some areas in the pec region and then go into Color Picker - move your color to the left (grayer). I painted with 186R, 127G, 107B. Klev is absolutely right that the highlights and shadow areas do not jive with the body builders. You could do a couple of things. Lasso and feather the head. Implement Tone Curve moves. You could pixel clone highlights from pectoral region, blending them into the faces highlight areas. If you really worked it, you could get it pretty close. Can't really show on the lores, but can give you an idea.
