Jacket Guy in Margie's Gallery
« on: November 12, 2016, 11:55:10 AM »
Hi all,

I've requested this image, while waiting to see if I get it I have a couple of questions.. I'm assuming the jacket is a regular black suit type jacket over his shoulder and the other question is does he have long hair in the back?? it looks like it but maybe it's hairlike damage.. he doesn't look the type to have long hair.. what say you all :cool:
Thanks in advance..
Lynn


So I did get this image.. here is my starting WIP.. color didn't really change much.. see how it goes as I progress.. I have a plan for the jacket :cool: ::) ^-^

lol...that's funny...I agree with the mullet...depending when this was it was a popular hair style...as for the jacket, yes looks like a sport coat...
The early bird gets the worm, but the SECOND mouse gets the cheese...

Girl, you crack me up! There was a comedian back in the day that described mullets something like .. Short in the front for business and long in the back for fun  ;D  Have fun!

I've been working on this image... still loads to do, background cleanup blending etc and of course THE JACKET :( all the empty looking layers are shadows for the shirt..

Phlearn shadows = empty layer, pick a dark shirt color, use gradient tool color to transparent and use the second one in from left.. round gradient.. splash a blob onto empty layer, Control T to transform into shape you want .. reduce opacity.

Please ignore blotchy background.. still loads to do.. thanks and feedback welcome..

Lynn, looking very good. Thanks for the Phlern tip on shadows. Your shirt so stayed true to the original. Kudos! You probably already addressed the mark through his hair above his bangs ... or whatever guys call that. ::) and there's a wee bit of discoloration left near his wrist. Look forward to seeing your next post.

Thanks Lyn... yes I still have loads to do.. trying to keep to the rules of WIP  :cool: will work on hand skin today and THE JACKET :crazy: and the background of course needs a lot. I have found that doing nearly all my repairs, cloning, healing etc in an empty layer seems to work.. In the past I would end up doing a lot of cloning etc in an image layer which often ended up muddy and blurred.. I'm TRYING to have patience with my layers lol :halo:

Confident you will do wonders by that jacket! I appreciate and learn from your WIPs and bet there are others who pop in to check out the forum who benefit from your screen shots as well. Your patience is showing. :up:

Outstanding Lynn! I looked it over and do not see a thing missing. Send that young man home to his family.  ;)

She says with a question mark! So, went back one more time and really zoomed in. Found one itty bitty teeny tiny thing ... loot at his tie where the knot is, see the one little bright spot? Original or correction?   :)
