I agree... WE have our own methods of work and the quote says that the wizard is wizard because only the wizard knows his secrets. However, just lazy people asks for an step by step tutorial. I really like experimentation and thinking how could be done some style, etc. Also, in the trying to discover process, you usually can get other interesting results that cannot be found by following the rules.

Re: The demystification of dave hill! let's all he

Hi Snook,

The purpose of my earlier discourse with MTMM was simply for the benefit of other less proficient Photoshop users.

To be quite honest I'm not that interested in the Dave Hill look anyway as it is very dated now. I'm personally much more intrigued by more refined photographers / retouchers such as Andzrej Dragan.

In terms of going out and shooting that is exactly what I have been doing and am very pleased with the look I have acheived...here is my latest Fine Art Portrait as proof and no, it is not Dave Hill!

Unlike you who claim not to be interested in the Dave Hill look, I will stand by this post and will no longer be contributing to this thread.

Good luck everyone in their quest for the infamous DH look. By the time you've figured it out it it might be back in fashion again.

Not sure what you last post meant.
!. Your image looks nothing like Dragan.
2.Dragan Post probably were the Hottest Post in EVERY forum all of the world and never really went anywhere either, so good luck.
3.What did you contribute so far that you will not contribute anymore? Sorry do not get it.
4.If your not interested in DH than what the hell you in this thread for?
5.Go out and shoot a 5 point set up and then post it here and maybe someone can DH it for you including Mtmm.
6.Luck is for horseshoes and Hand greandes, not photoshop.
7. Mtmm work also has nothing to do with Dragan and will not help in any case. They are totally different approaches.

8.Sorry you will be leaving, but when you figure out the Dragan technique post it, b/c there over 600.000 people looking for the same thing according to the request...

I'll will give you a tip for the dragan look.
Throw a layer above you colored layer but in B&W (of you choice) and throw that layer on Multiply or Lumnosity then D&B the hell out of the image, especially the edges to get nice and dark.
Then Liquify variuos face feature to exaggerate them...:+}

This shot IMO is def pretty damn photoshopped.. next time we will be more prepared with props and what not and skin alterations and fake blood, kind of last minute shoot for class, but we ended up going with the vampire/zombie killer effect. I think its pretty funny.. like "Get the hell out of my hottub" look.

Whatevs

Thanks Philip, I own a ring flash, and yes I debated using it on that shoot, and I should have to fill in more areas like his tactical vest on the left. We used about 6 lights and shot for the background first on tripod, then kept position and shot both the guys separately with separate lighting and then composited. It was at 3 in the morning, didn't have our full brain power that night as well after a few drinks. lol
