Re: My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

Another one only I also used some luminance masking. I like this one better than my previous attempt. The luminance masking is pretty good for targeted tonal changes.

Re: My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

Here's one I made awhile ago. It's not an action.

Re: My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

Hi Game, I had the same image so I tried my rendition of a Dragan effect. I prefer to go high on the Detail and accentuate haunting eyes.

Re: My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

Looks good Murray, I like the detail. I went back and re done both my previous ones to add more detail too.

Re: My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

Game, nice job. I think I needed to desaturate the face more. A Vibrance Adj layer took care of it.

Re: My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

If you like to know the dragan effect i can tell you what it is.

"TIME and FEELING".

I have a interview here where Dragan talk 20 min about his work and his retouching.
And ex explain that it took a lot of time to retouch the picture.
Sometimes weeks.
But most of the time he is thinking what kind of retouching would be good for the picture.

Thats very interesting and i am sure nobody can create the real "dragan-look".

But very nice results here... no dragan but nice.

lg calvin
