The Amazing Skin Retouch You Have Never Seen
Subscribe to Phlearn
Today we are talking silly talk. Bringing in an image and retouching LEGS. The techniques we cover in today’s Phlearn are great for things like legs and arms, but are not as applicable for faces. Most people tend to focus strongly on faces when it comes to retouching, which is important, but ignoring the rest of a body won’t get you anywhere.
We start off by making a duplicate of the model’s leg using the magic wand tool and a quick mask. Using the duplicate leg we apply a couple of filters to smooth out the details, while maintaining the overall shape. From there we select out the highlights from the original leg, blur them, and blend them in to add more depth. After these steps are done, we create a custom gradient in the color tone of her actual leg and apply it over her leg using a combination of the marquee, free transform, liquify, and blending. End result = Easy and Fun Skin Retouching! Click HERE to download the sample image to try for yourself!
