Re: Creative Portraits: Bonnie Brunette

Yes, I took some liberties - lowered the hairline, enlarged the eyes and mouth slightly, altered the jawline ... nothing a good plastic surgeon wouldn't have wished he could do. When it's beautiful to begin with, the temptation to play
G-d is overwhelming .

Re: Creative Portraits: Bonnie Brunette

Steve, you are right. This is a great portrait to work with.
In Photoshop:
Changed background,
Lightened skin,
Painted highlights in hair,
Added new highlights to eyes,
Adjusted color,
Layer style-Outer glow to figure,
Sharpened,
Added noise.

Re: Creative Portraits: Bonnie Brunette

photomaster,

not crazy about the choice of backgrounds there... a bit too busy and detracts slightly from the main image. but i love the main image!

Re: Creative Portraits: Bonnie Brunette

i had another go at this. this time i chose to do more of a retouching style than art. i recently made a filter forge filter called 'banded adjustments' which i used to start. this re-lit things a bit and added a bit more color tone to her face.

i then took it back to psp and touched up bits and pieces and added a usm filter at 2/100/5
