Re: High End Retouching = not....

Frome some point of view i understand Bianca. Maybe she (he?) hasn't got enough time to make a tutorial. Or maybe she doesn't want to share her's methods, becouse of any reason. Still, if someone have a time to pos here, she/he should eventually find few minutes to write just few things for start. If one is about to get to better result, there is not much needed to start digging... just a sign where to go, which dirrection. Ofcourse, one could say, its not enought, but as i have noticed... if i write to someone, that he should 4 example:
-create luminescense mask
- make levels on it
- add adjustements layer with mask of luminescence layer
and stuff like that, some will say it is not enought, some will start to search wtf is luminescence mask, and very few will already know, and maybe the only thing for them will be "create adjustements channel with a kind of parameters to get some result". Its all about trying, and from other point, its all about giving tips... ones that make somebody start to think and try. Not too much, but also not to little .

Re: High End Retouching = not....

I'm glad someone finaly made that clear =_= .. when I post retouches some people think they can do it better with blur but it's always horible.

I like your portfolio, the animations are great.

Re: High End Retouching = not....

To my point of view every single image have his own process, blur or not blur this is the question but even Lee Varis yes the same one who was named in Bianca's link http://www.modelmayhem.com/po.php?thread_id=286223. He uses a method in Lesson 13: Rebuilding skin and he do blur very heavy blur on the skin prove of this you can find it in the next link http://movielibrary.lynda.com/html/modPage.asp?ID=600

I know blur is unacceptable in many cases but some times you can go with it. All depends what you trying to achieve on you image.

Peace for everyone !!!


Best of luck to everyone!!!

Blah blah blah blah. If it looks good, then it is. If it doesn't it's because you stink or are trying to do it some fast way. If I can't see it, great. But don't try to hide anything. Retouching is supposed to be invisible.

Re: High End Retouching = not....

What's with all the snooty attitudes about techniques?
If it's not blurring, most inhouse retouchers still employ "tricks" to get the job done.

An employer who relies on fulfiling client deadlines to earn profit will not wait for someone to paint each pixel so there's no need to pretend successful retouchers don't have any "shortcuts"... just using computers was considered "inferior" by artists a short time ago.

Any computer tool and filter is technically a "trick" no different than using the blur filter.

If any digital retoucher wants to get all snooty about their "superior" techniques,
This link shows how to create skin textures without any computer tricks at all...lol...

Re: High End Retouching = not....

In the past I was also uses the blur. but now I rarely use the blur. sometime blur needs to smooth the skin but not heavy effect.
