Help with regaining facial structure

Wondered if anyone could help with this photo. I haven't started working on it yet. It has mold bits etc. But I wanted to know how to work on getting her facial structure and the right shoulder - badly damaged in wet.

Thanks

Cate,

Try copying the left side of her face, (camera right) and paste it over the right side. Flip the pasted piece horizontally and align with the Transform Tool. Then use a layer mask to bring back the original eye and other parts of the face. I think that will give you a good start.

Re: Help with regaining facial structure

I took the right side of her face and I copied it and blended it with a layers mask. then I used a lot of cloning and healing brush.
I also used some Dodge and Burn to darken her neck and hair.
this is very challenging photo.
Good luck

Hi Cate.

Straightened.
Copied right side of face to left
Painted over cracks
Added noise
Coloured
Vignette
Neat Inage

I think an artist could have got a better likeness.

Ken.

Re: Help with regaining facial structure

I'm new at this and I know I didn't get it right. I mostly wanted to see if I could get the facial features back.
Desaturated and used curves. Then made a layer to lightly trace a jaw line on the left and around the lips (erased it later). Selected the ear from the right and pasted it on the left. Cloned, airbrushed and smudged.
Haven't got the cloning thing down right yet and the shadows aren't right.
I didn't know what to do with the hair so just did a little cloning.
Added a background and sepia to the entire photo.
I really liked working on this.
Nan
