Another Headshot for Palms

You seem to like these ones Palms so here's another for you.

Of course anyone else can try as well.

I tried a B&W then added back in a little colour, I don't know which I liked best so I'm posting both.

Slightly larger original http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/%5B...g%5D%5B/url%5Dhere:-

Enjoy.

Peter

Re: Another Headshot for Palms

I do like these shots as you can practice a whole host of techniques on them ( when you have time and i am a bit short of that lately )
and i am not sure which ones i prefer of your two Peter, at the moment i am edging towards the b & w but i might change my mind

here is a quick one from me but i will be back

Re: Another Headshot for Palms

my normal workflow on all these art images is, i do six or eight rough renditions in filter forge or in psp and then call them all up and pick something i like the best and then fiddle around some more to clean up, blend with the original, or even blend some of the renditions.

so, this is why you sometimes see me post up to five images at one time and this time is no exception

this one was filter forge and some work in psp.

Devoid of color and grey; a heavy black ink stamp interpretation.
