Knee Wrinkles

Hi, My first post here I believe.

I'm trying to get started on this pic and need a push in the right direction. This model had knee wrinkles and I'm stumped as to how to get started on it. Any tips or hints are appreciated.

Thanks,

Antonio

Re: Knee Wrinkles

Well the model also had a menisectomy scar on her right leg. What worked for me was to copy the layer and start off with the patch tool using photoshop.
I started on the top of the right leg and made selections into the top of the wrinkle area and dragged the wrinkle into a "normal" area. I also used the healing brush some.

Re: Knee Wrinkles

I find the healing brush and it's variations kind of useless when there's so much that needs to be shifted. Used lots of D&B with a 2 or 3 px brush. Balanced hue. Then used a larger brush to clean up the dirty areas. Once all the tones were in a reasonable range, the healing brush was good for remaining blotches. I'd have done much more at the D&B stage in a real job, but no one's paying me here so took the healing shortcut.

Re: Knee Wrinkles

Wow. Thanks. Edgework,what's D&B? Dodge and burn I'm assuming? What settings do you have it on? I'm new here and not versed in the ways of D&B used here.

Thanks to both of you for your help. Appreciate it.

Re: Knee Wrinkles

Many ways to dodge and burn. Some prefer two curve adjustment layers, one to darken, one to lighten. I prefer one layer in soft light mode (no need to fill with grey). With two layers I find that you end up with spots that both curves are working on; I'll be trying to lighten an area only to discover that the darken curve is affecting it as well. With one layer, I paint white and black, or highlight and shadow tones sampled from the image, and each stroke lightens or darkens as expected. I use a pressure sensitive pen at 10%. In a shot like this one, there's no fast fix. I worked on each wrinkle, which is the downside to dodging and burning.

Re: Knee Wrinkles

One quick fix is to copy the layer apply a layer mask. And apply the motion blur filter at 87degrees and 10 pixels.
