Re: Request: Asian Model Skin Tan

u make it sounds like thai people envy white/bright skin. in fact, most people there are pretty tan to dark skin, especially in the South near beaches. South east asia is quite different than traditional asians u mention.

Eswiig, it would really help if you posted a sample of the dark skin you want lighted. Depending on how dark it is the solution will be different.

Re: Request: Asian Model Skin Tan

Here was my attempet at something of what you wanted.

The color fill layers are in color blending mode.

See the screen shoot for more details

Hope it helps,

Re: Request: Asian Model Skin Tan

lets me try. it's night photo might look lil bit darker. I first desaturate w/ solid white layer in color mode, then solid white layer in normal w/ opacity. after that just curve matching skin tone and paint brush w/ light pink on top.

I think some healthy tones would help this young lady. As it is, she looks very tired & sick. I would try to paint w/curves.

Re: Request: Asian Model Skin Tan

Here is the same image with the color fill layers turned off. I'll agree with you, i was trying to make her white, but dont think that totaly worked out. I was seeing how far you could push it.

Thanks for the crit,
-Keven

The second is another idea i had, use the Christian Schmidt AIM conversion to make things more white.
