Re: Retouching & drawing the age lines

Your work is pretty unreal, Florin.

I just have to ask, are you able to paint a person from scratch?

Because, well, you must have ninja like painting skills-- to be able to photo realistically reconstruct a photo like that!

It's awesome.

Re: Retouching & drawing the age lines

Hello. Yes Roob, I´m always doing this, paint a new image. I know this is a little bit out of the normal workflows but I have been doing this for years and I really enjoy this rotine. The final part, when I´m painting the age lines, the face´s shadows or highlits is the one I really like more. The rest is have a lot of patience and advance step by step, pixel by pixel, working for areas etc. Belive it or not, this is a little more slower and expensive but 99,9% of my clients want this art. Of course we are talking about the very damaged images, some "scratch" as you say. How should we fix a total disaster? I do not know other way. In my site you should see some worse pics, very, very bad, which had been restored by these means.

This is the link for the texture I put as a "linear burn" layer after painting the age lines. Gives me the right face´s spots for an old person, I think. Try to download it now because the May 30 ends my premium account and will be erased.
