  • How to create a plastic skin look

    Hi there people,

    hope one can help me with my question.

    I am looking for a tutorial (or just some help) for making a plastic skin look in some photographs. I want to create a kind of retro style.

    This technique has been used in several print campaigns for different brands, Diesel for example:

    I am aiming on the effect used for the guy on the motorcycle on the left and the girl ;-)

    Although I am not sure if this effect is created after the shootings, or was done with make-up and lightning during the fotoshoot.

    I hope that someone can help me, I would appreciate it very much :-)

    Thanks in advance and keep up the good work in this forum!

    Go to this forum thread: RetouchPRO Forums > Tools > Software > Photoshop: Favorite Filters, Uncommon Uses for Common Filters, Etc.
    Scroll down to the 12 post, I think psstewart has your answer.

        Hi Kesj,
        Welcome to Retouch Pro. Hey I think you might find this challenge page interesting. The effect Phyllis got has a definate plastic look to it. Check out the page here. I'm not sure if this is what you meant but when I saw her entry I remembered your thread asking about plastic skin. Maybe her technique would be helpful to you.
