Re: How does this man get that skin?!

We want to see the original of these shots to see about the lighting and the makeup [if there any], then we can try to answer your question, there could be many ways to get that look or color, but the smoothness or texture of the skin could be retouched in a way, so that i asked to ask if that skin texture is original or retouched.

In the second pic you can see from the lines in th neck (or lack there of) that there is some heavy blur applied. The overall look of the first two pics resembals the dragon effect. You can download actionsets and plugins to help you do this with either photoshop or lightroom.

I don't use it so I can't point you to it. I ran across the plugin for lightroom last night by googling "lightroom plugins". I think it may have been on adobe's site for exchange but I'm not sure.

Re: How does this man get that skin?!

stop with the modesty already. you swedes speak better English than.. the English lol

anyways, i think there is a lot of steps to achive this type of skin and i cant go trough all of them. but one little tip from me

you can see that the skin color is very even.. and it makes it look a bit fake (in a good way)

you can make a mask on the skin and put a "color fill" layer on it. then change mode to color or hue (depends what looks best) and change the opacity to around 40%

usually its enough with about 20-25% but on this one you can take it a bit too far

lykke til!!

To me, it seems like he does HEAVY Dodging & Burning after healing to give the skin a near even tone in certain lights shade values. After that, it looks like a good surreal color correction job to change the palette of the skin slightly.

Re: How does this man get that skin?!

I am more interested how the eyes were retouched - they seem sharpened and almost made plastic. Any ideas?
