Sorry, no. Why? same reason you don't give a six year old a razor blade. Best method will always require hard work, and craft - and that's the place to start. If you don't start there, you have accidents.

Yeah yeah - I never said that. And I'm not sure what a 'big dog' is either.

What he said (in his very special way <3 ) is that even if u know the "shortcuts" they won't help u if u don't understand the basis first.

Yep if its the 'New York Look', I think I might too. According to Google I guess it means this type of thing http://www.newyorkfacialplasticsurgery.com/ http://www.drphilipmiller.com/ and http://www.cosmeticsurgery.com/find/states/New-York/ 0 - great results eh.

I like you as well Godmother. If you care to sit on my knee sometime, I'll show my technical instructions, no probs.

Re: Texture in skin!!

Funny conversation...

I saw a recent W Magazine cover shot of Amy Adams here...
http://www.imnotobsessed.com/files/i...0wmagazine.jpg

Is there some blurring going on in her face retouching?

Or what about D&G's ad with Scarlett...

Zero pores or texture, yet it still works. Amazing. I guess its just painful hours of cloning/healing and D&B?

hm, very interesting, but i think it's a very different stuff than beauty.
beauty is totally opposite to editorial/fashion if we talk about INTENTIONS.

both are trying to sell (products, clothes...whatever) but beauty has the mission to convince the women (98% ads) and men (2% ads) to stay young and smooth.

the Scarlett's case is different. they are re-creating a myth: MARILYN.
so the mission is not about skin, it's about stylish and at first sight look back in the days to remember a celebrity. there's not Scarlett there, she is Marilyn

That's very well described Losthighway. I don't like the Amy Adams one, looks like a lazy shortcut. The other one - well its an 'illustration'. If she didn't have the beauty spot it would be lost.

Re: Texture in skin!!

Godmother you are so damn helpful it is amazing.
Pouring through your post is like a mountain of Helpful Information..

I must admit that I may be cocky some times but your in another League/Planet.
You must have such a bitter life. Really amazes me.

You might want to take Mark up on his offer because with your attitude it might be the last and only chance to get some of that anger released...

You claim to help people but it sounds like you claim to be a know ait all and your post are arrogant and useless in most cases.

Snook


By the look of your website you could probably learn some of those New York Texture techniques...

Interesting comment/philosophy and I agree, though not helpful to my inquiring about the actual Photoshop technique.

Again... yes it is illustrated looking, but did they use a form of blur. Or was it a 12-hour pixel-level D&B job.

Not that I was expecting an answer immediately, but this thread has turned into what many of these other threads become. Back and forth nonsense with little to no discussion on the retouching process and the real world techniques to accomplish the end result.
