    Retouched From B/W

    So I wanted to retouch a black and white image and make it colour...

    Quite alot went into this piece, though it doesn't look like it lol.

    What I did..

    Mostly curves and masks for skin tone, hair and eyes. Then retouched as I normally do with coloured images with high pass and surface blur.

    Before:



    After:

    Really nice mate, the hair line around the top is a little sloppy though.

    Some of the best recolouring I've seen! Colouring objects I find is simple enough but skin tones are really hard to get right. I find they always look somewhat off but this is phenomenal! Love it!

    That's because a lot of people only use one color for skin and call it good, which comes out looking plastic. People don't think about the redish hues that show through where the skin is thin and the blood shows, and they usually don't think about how light reacts with translucent skin either.

    Ahmm there are many flaws. But due to the limited time i left them to UN-removed. But i also want feedback. I do know to use basic tools. I am not aware of professional soft and natural look, that how to maintain that. My all images always become so bright dont know how to handle this :(
