Re: Change skin color

I gave this a quick go while I was eating. If I have more time later or tomorrow I'll try to finish it.

What I did:

Multiply layers with masks to darken the skin
Color balance to get more realistic skin tones
Soft light layers to lighten eyes and lips a little


What still needs to be done:

Make the lips thicker
Make the nose wider
Change the jaw structure to make it more realistic
Even out the tones across the face
Match the skin tones numbers with tones of black people


White people with black skin even if the color is spot on will always look either indian, pakistani or weird. You will need to change the bone structure of the face to achieve a good result. This reminds me of the movie White chicks...

haha didnt realize someone bumped this from last year... oh well!

I'd be more inclined to make him of mixed racial heritage so that you don't have to change the red pigments in the skin.

I duped layer, set blend mode to multiply, masked to keep the effect on the face only .... brought back the eyes, lips and eyebrows on the face. From there I jusr fiddled around till I liked it. Used dodge and burn tools in the eye area.

Re: Change skin color

I changed the features a little and colorized. Stripped the background of color to enhance the face.

Came to review the thread and noticed that I spilled some paint onto the white head cover, oops.
