Re: Removing Arm Hair

Hi transoptic,

See the pictures below.

Here is my quick and simple workflow :

1. Healing with "Lighten Blending Mode"
2. Healing with "Darken Blending Mode"
3. Cloning with very low opacity.
4. Some Burn to mainting body countour.

Hope it helps to you.

Ash

How much is too much. Seems to me, it will take exactly as much time as is required to do it right.

Re: Removing Arm Hair

I took a shot at it using the healing brush. Took a sample from her chest and with a soft cloning healing brush just clicked away. Taking the sample from her chest matched the skin tone and dint blure. Then cloned the eges on the out side of the arms to get rid of the hair there. Finaly did a Doge and burn layer to put back in the shadows and highlights of the arms. My try took maybe 15 minutes but to ge the better look and do it right will take an hour or so.

Re: Removing Arm Hair

@transoptic:

Why not post a 100% detail of the arm(s)?
I guess that would be a better way to find out how to...

Re: Removing Arm Hair

Hi there...

Below is a 5 minute job using the technique HERE simple and fast for this type of work.

I even over sharpened the picture as an example..hair is mostly gone but with shading and grain intact.

Re: Removing Arm Hair

Thanks for the replies and help.

I used mostly mtpfamily's method of sampling the chest. (Good thing she doesn't have chest hair ) I also used clone tool here in there using both a lighten and darken mode, then some PWL to fix the contours in the skin.
