Re: Amazing skin, only degrunge?

actually that is why Heyrad had to limit his before/afters to an email for password type protection. He had his bandwidth usage skyrocket because people browsing here went to his site and spent hours looking at his before/afters trying to figure out how he did something.
Remember that all the better retouchers here are in a business and that is what their websites are for, not for your educational purposes. Also all the extra traffic from these sites really screws with their traffic stats trying to see what is effective or not to the people they are targeting.

Try and see some before/afters on the Box's website, or many others, all they really need is the afters good finished product sells a service and not many clients need to see the befores.

Re: Amazing skin, only degrunge?

As I mentioned in the very beginning, can we take just one decent generic photo and anyone could show the approach and results they achieved via the retouch. I'm sure everyone's approach would be slightly different..one not better than another, but different. I, for one, would certainly learn something. I'm more interested in someone showing me an approach they'd take vs what they've already done. Expecially the one's who tend to be the most critical of other's questions. Showing without explaining is not learning.

Re: Amazing skin, only degrunge?

I agree Pixel Monkey completly.

I am photographer, not a pro-retocher (not yet), but I am working in that way.

First of all, I think we are very lucky in this forum, cause we have the oportunity to speak , ask and learn with really pro-retouchers. It doesn´t really matter if a pro dont show his work by website. Everybody is free to do that or not. And sometimes, they can´t. Me neither. I have hundreds fashion and beauty pictures to retouch, many of them retouched, but I have no permission to show it in web. May be in a future, but not yet.

Anyway, I am not looking for webs in this forum, I only want to speak with people who likes to do the same, retouch. We can exchange information, opinions, points of view.

Re: Amazing skin, only degrunge?

it looks like they copied part of the cheek and ran the high pass filter on it and moved that area to another part of the face...

Yes, thats the way to restore some texture into an un-textured area. Have to change the blend mode of the copied texture, after high pass, to overlay, softlight or vivid light. This last blend mode looks harder than the other and you have to modify the opacity of the layer to apply it very subtle.

Hope it helps.
