The biggest challenge with this one was figuring out how to wrap the

Believe it or not, they just don't do that naturally
APA/LA Digital Event: Photoshop Pen, Path and Brush Magic with Dennis Dunbar
After meeting in his studio for a couple of hours we had the basic look down, I then took the images back to my studio and finessed it a bit more and once Bob gave the thumbs up I started applying this look to all hero images. With 12 subjects and 4 shots per subject there were 48 images all in all. Here are a couple of samples from the finished images.

Join us on Saturday Dec 13th as our own Dennis Dunbar presents "Digital Dissection" where he will dissect several of his past projects. Dennis will show you how the complex composites for Movie Posters are put together, he'll take you through the maze of plastic wrap and Smart Objects and demonstrate how ultimate beauty is achieved.
In this session you'll see how the disparate elements that make up a movie poster are combined and blended to make a seamless composite using masking, color correction and yes, even paint! Moving on to a more commercial type of project Dennis will show how the same principles were used in combination with a good dose of illustration to create ads with noted photographer Bob Stevens. Finally he'll take you through the process of polishing and perfecting Beauty images.
This seminar promises to be an informative and interesting event as you run the gamut from complex composites to 'simple' retouching. Come join us at Anthony Nex's studio on Saturday, Dec 13th for this not to be missed workshop.

Of course this being the digital age that meant a little 'Photoshopping' here and a little there but Matthew's shot provided a great base upon which to build the final image shown here.
