Smile Re: My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

Hey all;

Just joined here and thought I'd try my hand at this effect:

Chantelle's Dragan Test

My process:
• duplicate original layer, unsharp mask 80%, radius 1px
• using composite RGB channel from original as a mask (cmd-shift-click RGB composite channel & save selection as new alpha channel), adjust Curves for contrast
• use alpha mask with Exposure filter, blend mode Luminosity at 45%
• duplicate original layer, put through high pass (15), blend mode Linear Burn at 60%
• restore iris detail on "high pass" layer using layer mask
• use luminosity mask to punch up deep shadows

Cheers,
Chantelle

Welcome to RetouchPRO Hope you enjoy your stay here and make lots of friends. Poke around, ask questions, offer help, have fun!

Nice body of work in your portfolio @ Flickr and a very nice first post here!

If you use Photoshop you can post fairly large pictures which are under 100k using the 'save for web' function in Photoshop as described here: Size, Quality and/or Format your Attached Images.. (Click here)

How to attach Files/Images to your Posts or Threads: (Click here)

If you want to post a larger resolution that is over 100K then you can host your image elsewhere and attach a link in the thread as you did here, but also please attach an under 100K version (so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links).

Re: My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

Hi 0lBaldy;

Thanks for your kind feedback about my portfolio, as well as addressing my file size conundrum!

I wanted to show as much detail as possible so hosted the image off site, but I will definitely dig deeper into the Save for Web Option; I'd been using this for quite some time but didn't even know I could specify a final file size! D'oh!

Cheers,
Chantelle

Re: My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

One of my favorite emulations of the Dragan Effect was created by Freelancer54 (Laura Gayle). She posted an instructional psd file called Dragan in 10 Steps. I lost the original link and discussion but have uploaded the file here

Re: My try on DRAGAN EFFECT

Thanks for the download Murray!

Another fine example of how it takes a lot more than one click to achieve good results.. It always boils down to paying attention to the meticulous details, and selective painting/shading to obtain an outstanding piece of work.... Great example!!
