Recently I took on a project that focused on super heroes. The first one I finished was Superwoman. Here are some photos that show the stages. I originally had a different model to do this who seemed to be way into the idea. But the moment we started she claimed she wasnt an "actress" and ended up not doing well. This model however rocked it!
She was awesome! This crazy girl decided to actually jump in the air for every single shot we took.
We knew before hand that jumping wouldnt produce the perfect face. So after we shot the full body pictures, we moved on and took a few portraits. Here you can see I moved her down a little, cut her out did a little liquify and added the new face. I then got ready to work on the hair.
After working the hair for about a million hours I set up the scene.
Then came the skin correction along with dodging and burning. I also took some shots of just the cape to add in later, which I did right here.
Finally, The color and some fine tuning.
Close up on the hair and face.
