Re: Creative Interpretations - Jillian pensive loo

Laughs. How could I get tired of them lkroll?!? I admire everyones work on here.
Every day I look forward to seeing everyones pieces. It gives me some ideas as to what I can try. I'm going to try some overlays .... or whatever they're called.
I also attempted to make my b/f look like a sith - hahaha - and failed horribly
Anyways thanks everyone!!!
Greg - your piece looks AWESOME It doesn't look like I have yellow skin anymore around my mouth! *does a happy dance.
You guys are so awesome at this.
Take care,
Jillian

Re: Creative Interpretations - Jillian pensive loo

Sorry, been busy working someone has to pay for all my toys LOL
Your re-edits of my edit look good.

Im not sure which editor your using, but one thing to look into that will help you in all future edits of anything with skin is how to even tones out. What I do after basic color correction (white balancing) is to duplicate the layer and then start applying a smudge brush, not just any old brush, but a very soft and diffused one. when done / happy with my results I then change the opacity of the smudged layer down between 50% and 80% . this lets some of the original skin show through, makes it look more real and less plastic (the smudging process will create plastic people!).

I also have another custom smudge brush that I made for replcating skin pores, I did this by shooting (taking a photo of) a sheet of paper crumpled into a small ball. I then compressed the colors of my paper ball photo and made it black and white. Finally I made a brush out of it. When I use it I use it with the smudge tool as well and I have it set to rotate the brush randomly each time it moves (this stops the edit from looking like its calculated or patterned).

Hope that helps / Informs / Gives you Ideas

Hi Greg... Sure appreciate all the "how to" detail. Great stuff.

Hope we will have many more opportunities to learn from you down the road...
