Hair removal

I, of all people, would like to keep as much of my own hair as possible (a battle I'm losing, btw) but with this model I need to get rid of this excess hair. Time is an issue, and I want to do it as good as possible.

This issue I'm having with this one too is there is a slight shadow on the wall behind the model that get's screwed up when I start cloning from the right because of the brightness diferences.

If anyone can get me pushed in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.

Re: Hair removal

Looks like you're gonna have to take the time to clone the hair out AND rebuild whatever is behind it. There is no quick process for this. Cloning, texture rebuild and shadow rebuild to match the rest of the image.

Re: Hair removal

Before cloning you could use a liquify tool on a separate layer to squeeze some of the hair & blend it in (a Sample below). This could save some cloning time.
