Re: A mass of multicolored dots!

So...how did you get the colors so clean? I'm guessing all sorts of blending?

Re: A mass of multicolored dots!

I used Imagenomic Noiseware selectively, the Spot healing brush and the Patch tool for problem areas.

Cool Re: A mass of multicolored dots!

Hello,

I've spent a bit of time on this picture. I lost track of time, it took oh my a few hours, I think.

Anyway I'll explain some of what I did in general.

Step one: I did an average blur over the entire image to get the average colour of the image. Then I invert this layer and set the blending mode to colour and lower the opacity to 0% then bring it up from there to suit. I do this to remove the general colour cast of the entire image. I learnt this technique from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAQsOeCCrAY

Step two: I masked 4 areas of the image The main part which is the people. The car the grass and the dark area at the back.

Step three: I did a skin tone correction using the mask of your daughter and mum and adjusting cmyk values, using the technique herehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vRj77klnXQ
I also raised the black to rgb(15,15,15) and white down to rgb 245,245,245

Step 4:After getting the skin tone as best as I could, what I then did is I further masked individual areas such as the hat, hair, both faces, the blue and white shirt, I got average colours for each masked area and used the same technique as in step one.

Step 5: I did an average blur again for the other areas in the background within the masks for those areas. This was to seperate the general colour cast at different depths.

Step 6: Everything from here was a lot more manual(minor adjustments using my tablet and mouse). I used surface blur to soften the skin of your daughter and a little on your mum. After that I reintroduced texture into your mums skin using a skin texture brush set to a soft light blending mode, then I added a small outer glow to the layer to simulate the skin texture.

Step 7: Custom dodging and burning with tablet.

The rest: At this point I grabbed the image from http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/att...8&d=1449252387 because I liked the values in this which worked reasonably well I took the values and applied them within my foreground mask.

I continued a little bit more using my tablet and painting where I thought things could be improved.

It's a bit intense but I think it's the type of image where individual areas need to be worked.

So that was a bit of work. Hope you enjoy feel free to ask any questions for any part of the image and I'll see if I can remember what I did.

Re: A mass of multicolored dots!

Okay everyone, here is my final (?) version that I matted and gave to my daughter (who, at 28, looks a little different from that). Thanks for all your invaluable help!

Re: A mass of multicolored dots!

So sorry that it's taken me a bit to get back to you. I am so impressed by your results! The hair has especially given me problems and it appears that you did quite well with it.

Thank you.
