Re: Yet another skin question

Maybe you should go to a bed forum if you're unable to talk about retouching?

Good idea. Which one did you use to find your futon?

Re: Yet another skin question

I think he uses Gaussian blur but first he selects legs(for example) with a lasso tool(or pen tool the be more precise) copies it to a new layer(so that he has the new selection as a seperate object on top of the background), then command+clicks on the layer to select the transparency of the new copied layer and then he does a huge amount of gaussian blur but because it was on a seperate layer with a selection on it id doesnt blur the edges of the body parts. After that I think he just ALT+pushes the right slider in Blend if dialog box to the left just to make some highlights visible from the previous layer.

Re: Yet another skin question

Clear to me that his success has more to do with the subject of his photography rather than its quality. The number of covers he has shot is irrelevant if the work is as unimaginative and uncreative as this. Also perhaps more importantly, how can he even value or have any respect for his own work and subjects if he skims over 10 images an hour??

Blend if to make the highlights visible! You might be right on. Thanks

Clear to YOU, maybe. Art is subjective, or have you forgotten that? Sure we can all learn frequency separation then spend a few hours with pixel level dodging and burning and end up with the same exact look that you see "all over the internet." Then pat yourself on the back with what a great job you did, and you'll still sleep on your futon, just ask oneredpanther. But here's a guy that has become wealthy and highly sought after for doing exactly what people on this thread make fun of! lol can you say bitter? To me THAT is creativity. Anyone can learn to "retouch skin." How come nobody on this thread has books, covers, and thousands of fans and people begging to work with them? Think about that for a while

Re: Yet another skin question

No I havent forgotten subjectivity in Art, that's why I stated it was clear to 'me'. If you understand creativity to mean getting money and notoriety from producing work every man and his dog can replicate with little thought or effort, then good luck to you.
