After seeing Schwaighofer-Art's making of video: youtube.com/watch?v=cyB1oqRleik I thought it a nice gift for you guys to see how I handle an image, freestyle. I took a photo from yesterday and started free styling it to make it a real "Dracorubio". You can see me trying out different styles and techniques. Hope you like it
00:10 replaced the original head with the top hat version and blending it in
2:28 using Liquify to adjust proportion (it goes Wibbly Wobbly at some point)
3:16 trying out some color corrections
3:22 enhancing highlights with exposure
3:30 removing the eye, to get a more abstract glass
3:40 darkening the glasses, trying to get a equal look and feel on them both
4:44 more color correction
5:34 dodging and burning on a 50% grey overlay layer
6:50 more color correction, just trying things out
7:23 using the Color Lookup adjustment layer to try out different styles
7:50 looking if noise removal is necessary, decided not too remove the noise
8:00 decided to use unsharp mask to sharpen up the image
I also have 2 Dutch photoshop workshops planned in 2013, check dracorubio.com/pages/vfx_workshop for details.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
