Re: Change skin color

Does anyone know how to get the hand to match the complexion of the face? As well as making the pinstripes more pronounced.http://img292.imageshack.us/img292/4...atwfontsp7.jpg Stumped

Re: Change skin color

Hi...
here's my try on Anabelle's pic.
Had a few brown fill layers then played around with the blending modes and opacity. Mainly overlay, color and multiply. Added a bit of red tint to the skin. Dodge highlights and burn shadows especially the eye area =)

Hello Anabelle

Here is my first ever entry in this website.... just to round up and not sound so complicated, this picture was created using overylay of colours and a few adjustment layers such as levels, curves, colour balance...etc etc.

And by the way, my gosh! i love the beard...hehe...



Thanks

Re: Change skin color

Here is a very quick attempt, to make it truly reflective of someone of African origin, I would have had to to do more local adjustment to the eye whites and lips

Very true, technically North European, South European, East European, Middle Eastern and South Asian are classed as sub groups of the same race (European). I found that weird at first, but when you think about it normally the only difference is skin tones, structurally very similar, except for North Africans who have distinct features because they have more sub saharan genes, whereas average European( all sub groups) will usually have between 0-10% sub saharan
