  • Body Manipulation (any tips, tutorials on how this is done?)

    I've run across this site http://homepage.mac.com/gapodaca/dig...ini/index.html and was wondering if anyone had any tips, tricks, or tutorials on how this was achieved.

    Are there any books that help achieve what this person has done?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Hi Bob,

    Seen this before, it's impressive.
    There is a magazine which comes out every month or so called - Computer Arts Projects - it's a spin-off of Computer Arts. Issue 50, 2003 dedicated most of the magazine to achieving this type of effect/makeover. Back issues are available from the publisher OR your Newsagent probably can get the issue for you.
    Their web address http://www.computerarts.co.uk

      Hi Bob,

      you'll finde some (short) notes about that in Katrin Eismanns book, chapter 10.4 in the first edition.

      Additionally to reach the "polished" skin, you should take a look at
      this thread.

      hope this helps,
      Marc

        Thanks,

        I've contacted the magazine's publisher regarding back issues. I just hope they don't charge through the teeth.

          I tried to duplicate what the guy did.

          I think its pretty close

          All I did is what I would do to restore an image

          Duplicate layer
          Dust & Scratchs on skin
          Lower opacity to 70%

          Added an overlay layer filled at 50% gray
          Dodged eyes on that layer with white at 2%

          Used sponge tools at 10% on saturate mode for lips

          Added colore layer for eyes

          Thats it

          I know there is somthing wrong with her left eye (right eye for us) But you get the point...

          I know its far from perfect, buts its fast and only takes about 3 minutes

              Paris,

              I tried ordering the back issue but the company said they no longer have that issue to order.

              So if anyone has it and if it's not too much could they scan those sections of the magazine?

              Thanks,
              Bob

                Bobreversed, even if it is out of print, there is still a copyright!

                You wouldn't like see someone share your retouching works on the internet because you don't have the originals anymore, would you?

                You should try e-bay, or the forum of CA and ask if someone sells that peculiar issue...

                  I've been searching eBay regularly since I learned about the issue. What is the forum of CA?

                  As for the sharing comment. I thought about it and came to the conclusion that if people could no longer obtain where it originally appeared and the only available option was for someone to share it with another person then I wouldn't mind. I'd be flattered that someone would want to read my works.

                  If it was posted for the whole world to read and a copy of the magazine was still on the shelves then I'd be upset but, like in this instance, the magazine publisher has no back issues available and so a means of obtaining the magazine (and article) becomes almost impossible.

                    The CA forum is there: http://forum.computerarts.co.uk/index.php

                    I see your point, but I don't know if abandonware relates to publishing...

                        Hi,

                        Has anyone seen good tutorials teaching this:Careful, is a big page!?
                        I really like this stuff. He combines vectors and some 'paint' job it seems.
                        I kind of wanted to share that link... I guess what I really want to know is about tutorials teaching how to add vectors...

                        HTML error in tutorials!
                        by OlProfBear
                        I was wondering why I was getting broken image icons and other weird problems with the rendering of the tutorials, so I took a look at the source. So far, every one has had the same HTML error:

                        Code:
                        <td><B>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<font face='verdana' size='2'><a
                        ...

                        Photoshop Experience
                        by alceria
                        I tried doing a search on this but didn't find any threads that really fit with my question.

                        I was wondering how each of you learned how to use Photoshop. Was it trial-and-error, or did you pick up a book and teach yourself in a structured manner, or take a class? Or do you just pick...
