New board: /vrpg/ - Video Games/RPG
Hello, /gd/.I'm new to Photoshop and I want to try some easy effects.Looking for something easy to start with, I tried the "turn to stone" effect, thinking it would work well.This is as far as I've gone, but the hair, eyes and eyebrows look awful.How can I work with that to create a real petrification effect?Any ideas/tips?Source pics in the next posts, in case you want to show something with my picture.
Dark hair is proving to be a problem, but I don't want the easy way out of choosing blonde models... There must be a way here.So far I've:- Selected the model- Desaturated- Pasted texture into selection and chosen Multiply as Blending Mode.Where can I go from there?Thanks.
And the texture I've used. Thanks for any tips you can give or show me.
oh no nonot again gaylord
LET'S DO THE TIMEWARP AGAIN
>>383419you actually think you have friends while this thread exists lmao
>>383419Here OP, I turned her into stone.
noooo fuck off
Is the original finally pruned? How long did it stay up?
>>384124600+ days. And not a single good picture was posted.
Are there any good examples of this effect?
Here OP, I turned her into stone.
>>383419I never check this thread but last time i did was like more than a year ago now, and basically the exact same thread with the same picture was posted. "new" to Photoshop, meaning what, less than 10 years?
>>384600Is this whole thread just a shitpost
>>384601Not really. /gd/ is just bad at /gd/ and they've been filtered by a simple problem.
>>385230find me a good example of this anywhere it always looks bad. / uncannyin b4 actual stone sculpture
>>385282 contlook at this shit. this is considered a good example of material conversionand still shows incorrect though process behind how any inclusion in the marble would be revealed (the surface is a 3d shape as are the inclusions -- the intersection is what is you would see ). while better than most the material is still way off, there is still evidence in this image of flesh like sub surface scattering, this phenomena does happed in marble too but not at all to the same degreejust carve a fucking head from stone already or spend a few years learning to look and draw
>>385283 more cont so mad i didnt post linkhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMBYy1Du4ygspewing
>>385284 mrcntlook at this fuckeryhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCwcKEUcqcUthe truth is it is a hard problem. it is one that can be solved but is it worth the effort, i dont think so
>>385230it would take more time to do properly than i am willing to commit to a shitpost on this board
>>385282What about this one? Good enough for you?
>>385282Or this one. Not the best, but with more work in the hair it would be great.
>>385282Or this one. Maybe the crack texture could have better curves, but what's bad about it?
>>383419It looks like he is made of stone.
>>385705>>385708a very specific program was used to make these>>385706absolute dog turd
>>385716It's just Photoshop, retard. Also, >>385706 isn't that bad (as a concept, although the execution could be better).
>>385705>>385708OK, now we have goals. How do you do this?
>>385999Apply your crack brushes on a masked layer and make sure they contour properly with the surface of her body.From there it's ez work
>>386000It's not easy at all. How do we fix the hair and eyebrows? How about the eyes? The texture is just the most simple part.
>>386005just draw it, duh...
>>386938Why and how would you improve them?
>>386940i wouldn't its a crap conceptif you want to do better then you need to look at real stone for referencework from what you see not from what you remember
>>387082This is the kind of crap a retard writes when they can't find a solution to a particular problem but they want to sound intelligent.
>>387100you nearly got me to write a helpful response.but then i figured you are too lazy to understandwhat i would tell youbasically fuck off and learn how to split the image into different frequency bands.. show me you can do this and ill offer advice on manipulating these properly and it still involves a lot of looking at reality
>>387160This guy thinks “STONE BITCH FILTER” is hidden in some menu in Photoshop.YouTube has tons of photoshop tutorials. Enjoy.
>>387399all hope is lost .. you cant even bloody read my offer still standsyoutube does have tons of tutorials and a few are very good. there isnt a good tutorial converting a portrait to stone thoughduplicate the original image use the high pass filter and then difference layer low pass filter together to make a frequency notch filterthe higher frequncy is where much of the textural information is low frequncy is more shape and shadowscolour can be dealt with seperatly on its own layersthis forms the basis of how texure maps used to me made from photos.. it isnt like that anymore but knowing how these old workflows gives you a much better understanding of how to manipulate images. the gaussian pryamid has been part of standard image stiching method for years and is bult into most photo softwareDESU it is also the kind of thing a properly designed/trained rgan ai would do well
>>387495 bloody kids nowadays dont know what life was like handed to them on a plate gettof my lawn
>>383419Why the fuck is this a thing again?
>>387752BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE YOU BUMP IT, FUCKING RETARD
>>387495Can you show how this would look before and after the effect? You can use any dark haired model of your choice.
>>387495he doesn't want the answer, he actually thinks he has friends with this thread, in the time this threads been active (including the last one) i could of taught a monkey to this
>>383419oh my god they revived this threadthe fact that by this point nobody wrote a neural network algorithm thingy that turns people to stone baffles me
>>383419how the fuck is this cancer thread still up, man this board is dead
>>387495Can you show the results of this with a similar picture or the OP's one?
WHY, EVERY SINGLE YEAR THE SAME THREAD FUCK FUCK FUCK
>>389431you bumb a thread over a week later with this shite, do you see the irony
>>383419how did I do?
>>383419the effect is not difficult but the hair makes it pretty much impossible without editing it in some way.
>>389538That's the problem we're trying to solve. Pure black has no curves to play with. What do you do, then?
>>389568just paint over it with some stone-like values and apply your textures.
Bump for a solution that doesn't involve painting the hair from zero.
the fact that this shit thread is still going after 3 months is just the absolute state of this board...
This may be the most stupid idea ever. But why don't we just copy similar hair from a blonde model, and then petrify it?
>>390295>3 monthsThis is the second time that it's reposted. The first one was longer
>>385708the hair is unrealistically fine to be stone
>>383419Select the modelPut stone texture in a layer in the form of the modelCopy model in two new layersDesaturate one, probably make grayscale and mostly transparentFor the second layer, use high pass filter and set lighting to "soft light".Could work pretty well
>>391516It's someone being turned into stone, not just a statue. The hair should be like this.
>>391521It obviously does not, you retard.
If you can't do this simple effect, you should all leave this board.
>>391684if you cant do this very simple much more realistic effect, in under 6 min. leave western culture.
>>391747ant it isnt ps only faggs use ps.
>>391747That effect is shit. You didn't change the hair or eyebrows, which are the main problem found in this thread. The question we're trying to solve is: how do you petrify the black hair and make it look the same colour as the skin?
>>391753increase the contrast,increase the brightness increase the contrast,increase the brightness,do it in tiny steps till it reaches +50-80% brightness, 30-50% contrast.that effect looks better as all the concrete you pros produced till now.then you can overlay you concrete layer as usual ova the skin.
>>391755i just used 20% brightness, my fail
>>391755oh also you need to soften the hair a bit. Oh also if you use multiple stone layers you effect can get better.
>>383419Stone statues don't have dark hair, so I guess you'd have to lighten the color of her hair.
>>391684Nice job, now tell us fucking how>>392201Why do people like this exist?
>>391516You're unrealistically stupid.
So... What do you think that looks better: >>391684 or >>391747?Why?
I feel she looks better keeping it simple
