Re: Would anyone like to practice...

Just one more update of the work in progress. About 9 hours so far. Light still needs a bit of evening and the body needs carving and retexturing (maybe I'll need 3rd party texture). Just a couple more hours and I call it finished. I will send you the full res when im done.


Before After.

Bro, if I'm recalling right, you posted a pic of your studio, or something related, and there were some super chairs there. Would you mind to let me know if you did that? 'Cause I'm wanting to buy a new pc chair.

flexmanta .. woW! What you did is really impressive ..

My first post here .. so hello !
And with that, I thought I'd give it a try .
I didn't like how her left shoulder was *pointy* .. sooo. I flattened it lol!
I also kina liquified her right eye, and gave her a hint of lip-stick ..

Hope this looks ok ..

Flex, that is looking amazing!! Cannot wait to see the full resolution version!

No this was shot in the studio using a 4 light set up, a main light (softbox), a fill light (softbox), a hair light and finally a background light.

Thanks again so much Flex for your efforts on this....

Re: Would anyone like to practice...

This is a lousy small, low-res image to work on. This site's max. attachment size sucks!
Better post links to Large File Transfer services like Wetransfer.com.

Anyway, I gave it a go.
I wouldn't do too much to this image (at this tiny size!): retouch skin blemishes, smooth skin, brighten eyes, enhance catchlights.

It wouldn't be better saying that the site's max doesn't fullfil your expectations instead saying that it sucks?

W.Smith, in photoshop you can change the size of your images easily. Press ctrl - shift - tab up arrow key twice, and the nuclear image resizer dialogue will pop up. Type in the brand of the camera you want the image to look like, and voilá:

...guys I would upload the PSD file, but it's currently about 2Gb in size.
