Moo... try making a selection of the subject then adding a hue saturation adjustment layer. Add red.

Re: Miami Kaos effect

moo, yes, to me it looks like smudging and/or airbrushing too, plus some dodging and burning...

Hi Moo,

There is made use of some different things. For instance the varations in photoshop to make the colour more yellowish. There is been made use of high pass filter to get some details out stronger and airbrush and surface blur technique to soften the skin/make it more cartoonish (illustrated).

These kind of art is doable when use alot of layers and time to get these result. Maybe if you can give a photo to work on then it i can look what i come up for you.

Re: Miami Kaos effect

This isn't a technique I use much, so I'm not saying this is good, just putting it up for you to see if it's heading in the right direction for your own explorations.

Smudge tool set to Normal ~30% strength to plasticize skin
dodge and burn tools set to midtones to heighten contrast
slight surface blur for further plasticity
high radius USM for further contrast
Vibrance for color

Re: Miami Kaos effect

I tried to use the photo. It is allways hard to work on lower resolution. Your photo contained a guy with less details then the orignal photo i think because of the age difference. The orignal photo the guy have more wrinkels so is easier to smudge. Your boy is more smoother.

What i tried to do is to airbrush the person. Bring out more details with high pass filter. Then i tried to put more sharphening in the beard. And colour change the photo to more yellowish cast. Next to some gaussian blur layer and noise layer to smoothen out some skin. I also gave a low opacity photocopy detail to the photo to make it more cartonish/illustrated.

Hope it comes a bit close for you.

Re: Miami Kaos effect

here is a quick attempt by me (not perfect by any stretch of the imagination)
for speed i used topaz adjust and then smudged
not a ideal combination but as been mentioned small sized image makes for harder work

moo here is a couple of tuts you might find interesting

wet skin

and cspringer's illustrated look

you might need to dig around for any more info and some examples
