CGI Artist looking to learn more Retouching

Hi!

I'm a CGI Artist

I do know Photoshop fairly well normally retouching cgi cars at work.

however I am looking to learn more about retouching I seem to only find retouching videos based around Models and fashion.

The kind of retouching / Grading I would like to learn more about more like these where there is a full scene rather than a model:

I don't know of any good ones but the keyword you'd be searching for would be "compositng".

Let us know if you find anything good.

Erik Almas has a DVD out and he does a lot of compositing and retouching.

Re: CGI Artist looking to learn more Retouching

I would also look for resources on matte painting. There are parts that won't be applicable, but there's a huge huge crossover with what you want to do here, and those guys have to constantly work with CG elements. Some of the theoretical aspects would also show up in Ron Brinkman's book "The art and science of digital compositing". He goes over some case studies in it, although it's a bit dated. It would be a good read if you find a good deal on a used copy of the second edition or obtain it via inter-library loan.

Looking at the work of Almas, there's an enormous planning aspect to something like that. You would want to block out the look and do mockups before doing the final thing. You have many of these where different elements of the shot received vastly different treatments.
