Re: Retouch-Retouch

Well, I was going to answer questions, post screenshots of curves and hue adjustments, tell people how I did this and that...

Excellent work! I'm waiting what your workflow was. I rarely comment in writing on work done here, butb yours deserves it.

Re: Retouch-Retouch

Thanks a ton.

I'll upload a psd of what I've done.
This one was easy and was done in about 1.5 hours. Mostly D&B and lots of adjustment layers.

I'm thinking of making some sort of a tutorial if you guys want.

Re: Retouch-Retouch

I like it :-).
Just one little thing: on the ground right next to his body there are little signs of cloning that I'd get rid of.

Really looking forward to your tutorial and psd-file :-)!

Re: Retouch-Retouch

I really do like this character portrait. If it is your original work congratulations a job well done.

Sorry but, seems that I am the only voice of dissent - I am not very keen on the treatment of the original. Of course this is just my opinion and I do realise that this type of 'look' seems to be popular at the moment.

The original I would agree needs a bit more punch to emphasise the character but for me the loss of highlight detail and texture available in the original is unacceptable.

I would have taken a different route with this and try to add punch without losing too much detail.

Of course it may be that a client has described the look and you have achieved exactly what is needed, and if you and the client are both happy then great!

Trying to understand your intent here - so a few of questions:

1. Was it intentional to loose texture/detail?
2. Was it intentional to loose detail in highlights?
3. The face looks quite yellow were you looking to mimic late sunlight?

Hope you do not take this too personally as it is not my intention to insult but rather to learn - in this case the mindset that led to the interpretation
