very nice ideas in this thread!



---
duplicate layer (desaturate), simplify, blend-luminosity, enhanced edges a bit, pasted to new layer, impressionist->pencil sketch-detailed col. (80, 90, 106; background-image), a tiny bit of simplification, impressionist->paint-free daubs (27, 87, 102; background-image)
-both passes of impressionist had decreased colour jitter to (2, 3, 3)

Glamour

The ReTouchPro poster campaign.....

Well have a good time with this one (lovely to look at) to say the least.

Had some help from the girlfriend with regards to the makeup.

Photoshop CS:

Smoothed out the skin using the smooth tool
Enhanced the eyes with some colour dodge
Eyebrows with some colour burn
Lips colour dodge
Added lip liner with colour burn
Changed the colour of the hair for enhanced highlights with colour dodge
Added some slight lighing effects
Cooled the overall image with AutoFX Tint Tone Color
Added the ReTouchPro logo for a little personalisation

Overall she has become my new best friend

Hi Danny,

I thought I'd have a brief go at your chalenge.

Quickly what I've done is as follows:

I cut the figure out of the background using a mask created from the blue channel
I then created a new "Studio" background using several Render>Clouds Layers, I then "lit" this using the Lighting filter.
I then did a quick retouch and spoting of the skin.
I reduced the highlights on the lips and forehead a little with an airbrush set to the relevant color.
Then I cut out and enlarged the eyes a little and merged them into the image again.
I then Duplicated and Blurred the figure, applied a black Mask. Using a very low Opacity Airbrush I then painted in some diffusion onto the skin.
After this I created a Softlight Layer filled with 50% gray. Using a very weak 5% White I airbrushed in some more modeling into the cheekbones.
To draw more attention to the face I added a Hue/Saturation mask and appled -30 desaturation to the body
Finally I created another Hue/Saturation Layer to intensify the lips

Hope you like the result.

Regards

Con

Thanks Janet, this image was one of the most enjoyable to work on, i have quickly found that having a Wacom tablet greatly improves the amount of control and flexibility you have.

sharpened/saturated the irises and masked them out of the next manipulations

blended in:
bluish layer to normalize color
"coffee"-colored layer (mocha?)
gradient layer

selective blurring, dodging, and burning

added edge

Thought I'd try an overexposed look.

Painter 8: Smeary Camel Cloner followed by Chalk Cloner. Imported to PS, ran Levels Adjustment. Opened Curves and raised the bottom point up halfway to remove almost all color. Used the Dodge tool to bring back just a bit of definition.
Also, ran the pic thru a Cartoon action.

Cheers
Dave
