Re: Teen Acne retouch (original pic inside)

It looks to me like your are making progress. However the lighting and perhaps the saturation seemed to have changed some.

To start off this acne retouch I converted to lab mode and then used the healing brush on the luminosity layer which seemed to get the retouch off to a good start.

You're right.

Maybe by putting my retouch on a layer over the original, then splitting it in luminosity and color blending mode layers, and toning down the opacity of the color one (thus letting some of the original skin color back), a nicer result could be achieved.

Re: Teen Acne retouch (original pic inside)

I went for the "clean" look as directed (always listen to the customer).

Acne went with the Healing Brush tool; ByRo's degrunge technique took care of the blotches. Also lightented the eyes and squared the jaw a bit.

Here's a link to the original - it shows far beter here:

Here my try, I first got rid of the blemishes with the healing brush. Smooth out the skin with the healing brush with a pattern (took it out of the Katrin Eismann book) reduced the opacity to 60%. Than took healing brush again than tone down the highlights.

I did two attempts, I was not happy with the first.

Carb,
Thats a reeaally nice skin retouch! I like it. Could you ellaborate a lil more on the healing brush 'with a pattern'

Maybe you toned down the highlights a little too far though.

Great work

Re: Teen Acne retouch (original pic inside)

this my attempt...I'm pleased, maybe some adjustments on the color? I'm trying to see coloring now, but I'm a hopeless case when coming to color management...

Cool Re: Teen Acne retouch (original pic inside)

superkoax - I like it, very stylised. But he does look touched up, and its a bit too green for my taste. Nice though, i like it

Here is my attempt at this, though I must admit by D&B skills are...lacking to say the very least.

Re: Teen Acne retouch (original pic inside)

Hi Ankh1,

Thank you for the nice comment. I took it out of the Katrin Eismann book make a new file at 64X64 pixels large. Than fill it with 50% grey select filter>Artistic>film grain setting grain 1, intensity to 5, than select all, than go define pattern. Name it and go the healing brush select the pattern set to screen and than smooth over skin. I did on it own layer, than the opacity down to bring back some of the texture of the skin.

Ankh1 you did a good job too.
