how to volume bust?

hi

i have got some models with very little bust, and good method to create a nice one with volume? the client wants it. they wear bikinis or tight shirts.

i made the first one, she looks good now. i took the busts from a third model and blended them into the chest. but i cant do that with the 2 others. it would be too obvious.

using the blowup-feature in the PS filters is a bit limited. it looks too blown if exaggerated.

Liquifier and stuff is a good start for breast enlargements. What's important is to find the right way to apply the texture to them, e.g. if you have a bikini with stripes to apply them so it looks natural, and to watch shadows and lights to make them look real.

Do you happen to have an example picture?

ok sure if you want. fine

the liquifier tools are my first choice for this in combination with curves to boost shadows and highlights, like you describe,

i only thought there is another different approach, so i could learn more...

Think about what happens as the surface turns from facing the light to curving away. It goes into shadow. (Duh.) A larger surface will result in highlight, transitional and shadow areas being politioned differently than a "flatter" surface. (Trying to keep this PG-13, folks). There will, in fact, be much less shadow with a flatter surface. Liquify is essential for modifying the edge areas, and the seams of material, but look closely at your shadow areas. Get a dodge/burn layer going and you'll be amazed at the enhancement that is possible.

If you want to bring your retouching skills to another level, I HIGHLY recommend this DVD: http://www.thegnomonworkshop.com/dvds/sro08.html
It discusses in depth how to create beleivable volumes from scratch. Great for breast, facial and body contouring and everything in between.

Enlargement

Pure, play around with Filter>Distort>Pinch as well as Filter>Distort>Spherize. If you use the Eliptical Marquee tool to make a selection you may find one of these does just the job on a specific model. The Spherize filter also allows you to contrain the distotion to only the horizontal or the vertical which can also work well on some images.
Regards, Murray

thanks. it was made a bit too fast and not detailed very much, but for 1-2h its ok for me. as i mentioned, first used the different tools in the liquifier filter in Photoshop CS2 to correct the desired shape of the bra, then adjusted the curves for shadows / highlights partially and used dodge and burn a bit. finally i dropped a cutout from another girls’ brest and worked it into the other skin.

i just showed it for getting inspirations to create it in another way. maybe there isnt. i dont know.
