Re: Pavel Novikov - Reverse Engineer Technique

If you're going to map color to skin you should also consider bringing the image in really flat, add mapping layers, do curves and whatever else for contrast on layers above this. It'll sort of seat the color a bit better that way. This does not fix everything and opacity/blending modes/etc. should still be considered as they remain relevant.

Re: Pavel Novikov - Reverse Engineer Technique

Thanks everyone.
I'm really impressed with the gradient map concept now that I understand it. I gave it a go last night and the potential implications really blew me away; I'd never considered remapping skin colour this way - it's very useful when applied selectively and with restraint to certain areas.

Fake D.O.F. giveaway.
if he put the focus on the eyes, 1/3 should be sharp in front 2/3th behind.
His images seem to have more d.o.f to the front instead of the back.
