Re: Need help with this white skin effect.

I used channel mixer with monochrome selected.
Raised the curves to lighten it some more.
Ran it through neat image and added colors to her eyes, lips, hair and eyelids.
I also added portraiture glamour on a low opacity and brought back some texture with the original, high passed and blend set to soft light.

The program has it's own mask but I pushe it to the limit to get a uniform effect on the skin. That picture took like 3 minutes.

Ohhh, now I like this. Edgework, could you please give us a accurate rundown of what you did here? I really like the way that looks.

Nice Qubic,
I like the hair too. I can't tell, your model is lying down, right?

Looks a bit more goth-like than the examples you showed...maybe because of the dark hair next to the extra white skin. Id love to see the original.

Crazyfly...she is not lying down.
lily...yes, iti is not like the examples I`ve given but the idea is the same. I whitened the face as much as I could with makeup to make post processing easier...still got to improve though.
Here is the original. http://img232.imageshack.us/img232/2373/origrq4.jpg

Thanks for showing the before.
The makeup is quite opaque.
Perhaps applied lighter would let more natural skin show through and allow for more photoshop play.
