Re: High End Hair Straightening Retouch

Looking at the OP example, getting that to look just right could be absolutely brutal. I don't think everyone is seeing the numerous errors/mistakes because the resolution is too low but in the "tidier" version it doesn't pull back in any way and is basically just chopped off when it comes to the edges. You can see how it doesn't connect between the lower portion either. hair is just really tedious if you want it to look right.

Re: High End Hair Straightening Retouch

This image looks to me like the retoucher spent the tedious time rquired... and painted in 3 colors of hair color... with a very small brush... by hand. Maybe even a tablet... to assist in parallel stroking.

The bun here does not look totally natural...but it is very close... and very nicely done.

Some of the flyaways at the edges were cut out... and the bun looks to be hand painted by a very informed and patient person.

Here is a fun link to painting hair updo's by hand:

Googling "painting human hair by hand" will give you some other very nice tutorials on creating hair from scratch.

Cheers,

Re: High End Hair Straightening Retouch

Yes, I think Kristina have painted the hairs in the image OP has mentioned, even I do paint the hair a lot of times maybe around 50% of my hair job is to paint but that depends on type of image.

Most of the hairs you see in the image retouched by me is painted: http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/23778009

Hope this helps

Re: High End Hair Straightening Retouch

thats painting, combined with cloning & warping some pieces of hair from other place or pictures. i have no idea to make it with the same quality by other way.

Re: High End Hair Straightening Retouch

Pari,

1. How long did that hair take to retouch?
2. How much of it was hand-painted and how much was cloned and made to fit?

Could you post the original for comparison?

Re: High End Hair Straightening Retouch

12 hours for the complete retouch, that means 10 hours for hair and 2 hours for rest
About 40% is painted, I cloned the little stray hairs only no larger clones in this.
No I'm sorry, the photographer didn't gave me permission to show the original at all.
