Re: High End Hair Straightening Retouch

You can find a million tutorials on skin but hardly anything decent on hair kind of sad because it separates the retouchers by a lot those that can do hair and those that can't...

If someone wants my brushes set I'll upload them into a free server for downloading, no problem.

Re: High End Hair Straightening Retouch

With a high res picture you can make a hair brush with smaller diameter hairs. With low res, as this example, it is harder.

Below is not worth a darn but with the right resolution to start with you can just draw in hairs to straighten and look at least OK.

Re: High End Hair Straightening Retouch

This is the link:
http://www.mediafire.com/?uhimkzmvzk9dd6k
If you'll look in the samples gallery of my site you'll see everything I was doing with those ones. Mostly I used the #100 (500px) for hair, using rotation (change angle) and different size fron 500px to 200px and the #11 (18 px), from 18px to 50 px to deaw the eyebrowes, moustache etc.
Enjoy!
P.S. I'm working with 800dpi resolution for the 6x8 and 8x10 pics. The brushes will work fine if you'll use this too.

Re: High End Hair Straightening Retouch

Thank you too. Anything you could need to know more about this item please ask me.

I usually paint the hair after have finished all the retouch of the head. Previously I'm working the hair area making uniforme colors, as you can see in this work file:
http://www.mediafire.com/?5u8yfdzkm0g7liq
Its resolution is 800dpi so it works for practice.

Later I'm doing different strokes, not too large ones and twisting a little the alignement. You'll find more details here:
http://www.mediafire.com/i/?65bkupn69ey2d2c

IMPORTANT: I ignore why but these brushes do not work for me in the CS5, the strokes are not the correct ones. I'm using a CS4 version which is instaled too in my PC and works great with them. Also CS3 / 2 or 1 works fine.
Regards

Re: High End Hair Straightening Retouch

I'm glad to help
Please forgive my post because I'm a little out of the main theme of Ali Bahman, which is talking about the manipulation of a new picture. My samples and brushes could help better for the damaged or vintage ones but I hope some of you, my friends here, could make use of them.
Have a nice day and thank you too.
