Tough job solved

Hi everybody. It`s been a long time since I haven't upload some works I`ve been doing.
This weekend I had a special on demand job: client wanted a 8x10 inch portraiture from a small, old and damaged picture. Also wanted re-designed clothes or template because they were in a very bad state. I choosed the first option and I applied a floral textue usind the filter Distort /Displace h40/v40. Everything was painted with the clone brush, dodge and burn.

I'm working just now in a baby picture retouch, some big 30x40 cm size. The glass was broken, water filtered and damaged the image, well, a whole mess.
I`m using now the clone brush painting technique and I captured with Camtasia Studio some 2 minutes of the workflow. I must say this it's just some 30% of the work, a lot is still missing. If you are interested about the painting technique just see this:

Re: Tough job solved

Yes, first of all. It's a good choice but sometimes it blures too much the image. It depends of the texture's tipe.

Re: Tough job solved

love the woman restore!

not sure about adding the floral thing on the baby's head. was that there before or did the client ask for that?

and very glad you're posting some videos on how to do what you do. cloning is something everyone shld become very familiar with.
