Before and After: Come and Get Me



First of all, I would like to ask for an apology for the very shabby background. This photomanip was somewhat done in haste and laziness. Haste because I was excited to show shiny-shadows what I've done with her tutorials. And laziness because I didn't do any effort with the background, I just painted it mindlessly. Holy shit, I didn't know that skin painting could take a lot of your energy. Huhuhuhu.

But anyway, Come and Get Me is my first ever painted look and I couldn't have done it without shiny-shadows' wonderful tuts.  It's not perfect but give me some slack. Hahahaha. I know that the hair still needs a lot of polishing but for the meantime, it should do. I am still going to ask shiny where I could find the airbrush brush preset in CS 6.  And I know that the dodging and burning of the arms and shoulder still looked like crap but I'm still trying to learn how to make them more subtle. 

And one more important thing is that, I did this photomanip withOUT a tablet. Although I  just recently bought one, I still don't know how to use it.  And I don't have the time to learn it since I am in a hurry to immediately put shiny-shadows' tutorials into action.  I am still comfortable with using my good ol' trusty mouse.  My point is, shiny's tutorials are still applicable even if you don't have one.  So for those who don't have tablets but are desperate to learn the technique, don't be discouraged to buy shiny-shadows' tutorials. 

The main intent of this work is to provide feedback to shiny-shadows' tuts.
