Re: Hi! Need help for removing front hair

Sirespen,

Maybe I'm trying to be too literal in the picture but the skin under the soft fine hairs have a very different silky texture to it. Do you see in the original how the skin texture changes there?

And if this weren't such a close-up of the area in question you might notice that cloning and healing over that with texture from the middle part of the forehead looks less realistic. So yes, at this zoom level, I can see like it looks undone, but it's more in consideration of the original than anything. I actually should have brought that smoothness in more that I did.

I actually think it looks pretty good. I would revisit the very top part, just to the right of the widow's peak, just to perfect that some. Remember it's about putting it in context. There's always a balance between perfect and real.

I think you've done a great job.

Re: Hi! Need help for removing front hair

oh, thx. But i'm wondering how "pro" would solve the problem? I used D&B and the stamp tool, different layers ecc.
I'm really a noob, but I don't understand the advantage in using d&B to remove the Hair.

Re: Hi! Need help for removing front hair

Well the nice, and frustrating, thing about Photoshop is that there are always several ways to do the same thing. I think a "professional" approach is where you

a) survey the problem and have a strategy before you start anything
When you think the problem through, it will come to you the best way, within your abilities, how to try and handle it.

b) proceed in an orderly manner
Each layer should be perfected before adding another layer to tweak the look. Name your layers and make sure each has only one purpose working toward the resolution of your problem. Make sure you're never working on your original layer. And don't be afraid to blend the opacity. This will make the end result more realistic.

c) don't be afraid to throw it all away and start from the beginning.
Sometimes you lose your step along the way. Sometime what you think should work isn't. And I've found that it's sometimes easier to start from the beginning than take all the time figure out what went wrong in the first place and try to fix your fixes.
