Skin obsessed !

I am interested in achieving the skin texture in the photo below. It looks like another texture was applied in a mask then that texture run through USM.. I don't think its the high-pass blur thing. The texture is too uniform to be the real skin...

Any help would be greatly appreciated !

Thanks

Re: Skin obsessed !

i dont think a false texture was added...looks more like the over sharpening is giving that illusion.

Re: Skin obsessed !

So you think its just the normal work up on a separate layer filled with 50 % grey then that layer duplicated then sharpened with a high radius in USM ?

Do you think noise and emboss noise was done before the sharpening ? I have never been close to the effect. Not sure I want it but curious..

Re: Skin obsessed !

It looks to me that they blended a constrasted grain over the skin to match the pores

I think noise was added.
If you check the lips out the same texure is there and does not look normal.

Re: Skin obsessed !

I've taken pictures of leather objects (purse, pillow, chair, etc.) and used it for texturing to get this effect.

Re: Skin obsessed !

How do you apply the layer mask to the skin ? It must be greyscale to avoid the leather color..

Re: Skin obsessed !

I could be wrong but...

It looks like when the photo was taken that a ISO setting was used. There are several plugins that you can use in photoshop to simulate ISO settings, try a google search.

Here's a photo that I played with on another forum. I used the free OptikVerve plugin to simulate a higher ISO setting. I also have done some D&B which is probably obvious.
