Re: Beauty retouch psd

thanks for the generous offer of links, info and sharing the psd.

I'm new and pretty eager to learn and learn quickly. This will hopefully give me a good basis to develop

Thanks!

skin tone

great work, thank you for sharing.

on my monitor (calibration could be questioned) even though the wb of the eyes is good, the skin looks yellowish.

I made some adjustment of the skin-tone for comparison.
how does it look on your monitors?

hope this is in the forum guidelines and you don't mind

Is not a monitor issue, is a personal taste thing

The point of it was to make the skin really warm to contrast with the blue eyes and BG

Thumbs up Re: Beauty retouch psd

even if I were going for a toasty warm it would be looking too yellow for me
but as you said it's a matter of taste

cheers

Re: Beauty retouch psd

ShadowLight, I find Natalia's skin tone much more natural and pleasing. Your version looks like the model was baked in the sun for too long. However, putting aside personal tastes, if you prefer a less yellow skin look, then you should shift the color of the skin and not everything else. Her hair now has a definite red/magenta cast, as do the whites of her eyes.
Regards, Murray

Looks too much magenta in my monitor (the one at the right).

I also think your version still looking too magenta. In terms of professionalism, the skin color you gave to your image will not be appreciated by photographers, art directiors and such. There are standard skin color values for each raze, so if you want working for someone you have to respect that standard.

Regards,

Mart

Re: Beauty retouch psd

Quantum3, really? it's too magenta even on the first attachment?

the second one was way over the top, as it was "toasted"
it does look more "magenta" but still looks better than the yellow (at least here)

It's interesting that you mention: "There are standard skin color values for each raze, so if you want working for someone you have to respect that standard."
.. actually I am somewhat familiar with this, and the colour numbers did not look quite right (excluding the white balance on the eyes, that was good)

in specific the shadow transitions did not look quite right, even more yelloish and different colour than the lit skin, or the shadow...

I see you impress on how professional you are, and how amateur of me... but as I said the second attachments was overtoasted on purpose and when talking about the skin-value numbers I would like you to check them and why not post the ones you think are relevant here so we can check them too (and learn something? ).

however if it's all a matter of taste everyone has a different one

cheers

ps. I do see it's more on the "magenta side", yet still looks much better here
(i did the tone correction in a a few min early in the morning, and comparing with the yelloish tones looks like I overdid it a bit)

in specific there is "oversaturation" of the shadow transitions, where the transition looks more yelloish with different colour than the lit skin, or the shadow...

Haha... I'm also an amateur =D Godmother is the pro around here but check the numbers in this attachment. You have too much magenta in your shadows.

The numbers usually are:

Cyan: 10%
Magenta: 3 times more than Cyan.
Yellow: a bit more than Magenta (something like M: 45% then Y should be 48%-50%).
