Fill this layer with the color 75,25,25 using the Paint Bucket tool. 2. - Eyes and Lips... Make a new layer, above the layer "blur", name it "lips". Use the Zoom Tool to increase the area of the lips and use a paintbrush of the appropriate size to paint the lips with the same color: 75,25,25.

As you will see, there is a small clear point in the left corner lips, also another close to the center of the inferior lip, something that seems like a grain. It is necessary to correct this with the Clone Stamp tool at 50 - 35%. Deselect by Pressing Ctrl + D.

Six Tuts On Light And Shade, Part I, Sunny Afternoon This tutorial series is intended to be used with mental ray for Autodesk Maya 8.5. “Happiness is like the sun: There must be a little shade if man is to be comfortable.” - Let's start our exercise with this little quote by Otto Ludwig. Welcome to the first of the six-part tutorial series, discussing possibly the most challenging kind of 3D environment: interiors. mental ray (for Maya) users typically get cold feet and sweating fingers when it comes to this “closed combat”; the royal league of environment lighting. It’s for no reason though, as all you need for the battle is a simple field manual (this tutorial), and just a little bit of patience... So what is it all about? As you can see, we have a closed room; you can tell by the porthole and the characteristic door that it is a room inside a ship.

Add the Model Look to Your Portraits with These Photoshop Tips I'm a professional landscape photographer living on the coast of Maine. Through my work, I like to show a vantage point that is rarely seen in reality; a show of beauty, emotion, and serenity. Feel free to visit my website. By Christopher O'Donnell on in Photography Post Production Having a “model look” to your portraits is a bit more than just great lighting and using a sharp lens – while you can create stunning, magazine-quality photos with just your camera, you can bring out the true beauty in your images using a few simple Photoshop techniques. 1. Having professional-grade camera equipment is certainly a benefit, but not all of your clients can share your enthusiasm. Photo by orangeacid 2. A “catch light” is the reflection in your model’s eye from a light source – typically it’s studio lighting but can also be natural sources (such as sunlight filtered through a window).

Selective Color Photoshop Tutorial Selective color is a cool post-processing technique that can really make your subject and photo stand out. You might have seen a photo where one thing might be in color and the rest of the photo is all in monotone (black and white or sepia). Today, I’m going to show you how to achieve this effect in Photoshop by using a quick and easy technique. For this photo, I just want the red Union Jack part of the Australian flag to stand out, and the rest I want it to be in black and white. As you can see, there are other red colors present in this photo, so we need to firstly separate the Australian flag. 1.) Use the magnetic lasso tool to select the subject. Once you’re done, right click the selection and select Layer via Copy. Call this layer, Color Layer. 2.) Let’s make everything but the Australian flag black and white. You should end up with something like this: That looks good, but I just want the red Union Jack part to show. In the Edit drop down tab, change Master into Blues. Article by Yi

You're making me hard. Making sense of hard edges, uvs, normal maps and vertex counts Ok, so first things first. This is a test mesh I created to show off 3Point Shader quality mode. What that means is this mesh was created specifically for a synced normals workflow and to show off the benefits of that workflow, there isn't an excessive amount of uv seams, in fact there are less than I normally would use even with a synced workflow. A: Soft edges for the entire model, "Averaged projection mesh" B: Hard edges at uv seams, "Averaged projection mesh" C: Hard edges at uv seams, "Explicit mesh normals" projection. As you can plainly see, there are absolutely no visual drawbacks to using method B. In fact, if anything B looks the best, as there are extra artifacts, again what I like to call "resolution based smoothing errors" on A in more spots than on B(they have the same issues where the smoothing is the same, of course). Now you may think this is super subtle, and yes it is, but the simple fact is B gives better results than A. Here is the normal map content. UV layout:
