Re: Car Retouching??

Thanks. I know he's sampling some colors and somehow painting with brush, but i can't figure out how you paint something like this. He's painting it from sratch with gradient tool? It doesn't look like it.
I cant figure out how he got from the second picture to the third picture.

Re: Car Retouching??

An educated guess I would say it's either built up with ovelaying grads on several layers or very carefully painted & blended.I prefer doing this type of stuff with grads as my painting skills are not that hot!
The lighter tones may be applied in Screen mode,getting the chrome look is what is going to really sell it.

It doesn't look like he used any blending mode. The tones look same, he just repainted the whole bumber to remove all reflecions and to even out the tones a bit. Its probably really only a brush and mask.

Re: Car Retouching??

Yeah it's just sampling the existing colors and using the airbrush at a low opacity on a new layer to eventually repaint the entire bumper. I like to use seperate layers for each tone and blend them with layer masks. I guess it's kinda hard to explain, but it's pretty simple with some practice.
Also, i'm not sure you can do this easily at all without a tablet for brush sensitivity. If you're trying it with a mouse only, then it would be exceedingly more difficult I'm afraid.

Re: Car Retouching??

That pdf step by step was excellent. I imagine it would be tough to get every last detail down in a program like maya for print standards, where motion doesn't hide anything, even with the insane amount of polygons that go into car models. It just seems far quicker doing detailing in photoshop, and easier to gauge given that you're viewing rasterized data. Any of you guys that have worked on cars know how someone with a decent background in retouching overall would go about building up portfolio material for cars? I mean where do you start out for an area like that? Obtaining good raw material is a bit more difficult there than in other areas of retouching.
