My photoshop journey posted by

Hello, so i was having fun showing people on Twitter the before and after of the mega chio (after) picture, here's a side-by-side for you guys!

Oh wait, by the way, the green hair is achieved WITHOUT bleaching. So it doesn't do much harm to your hair except brings you a lot of attention. Lol. Refer to post below for appointment number if you're keen =D

So this is what i did, eh hallo, everybody say it's nice okay. Lolol =D I still can't master the angular nose photoshopping Xiaxue shared but i'm still trying! Lol.

This is the original =((

My version before and after.

Since every body say the photoshopped picture is nice, i told bf and he's doubtful. He don't even wanna comment say nice. Lol. I think cox HE WAS THE ONE, who introduced me to Photoshop! So now he cannot accept 'green come from blue, win blue'. LOL.

It means the disciple is better than the shifu! Lolol.

About 7 years ago i met him in his studio but we were just friends then. And he was touching up some pictures for his work, i remember it's a series of advertisement for some traffic police campaign.
When he cloned away the dirt, i went "WOW, 很神奇 leh!!!" It means "WOW, very magical leh!"

Lolol. Ahem, i was a cute 17 yro please. Lol.

So anyway, i didn't bother to learn Photoshop until two, three years ago. So he taught me the basics like leveling the pictures, cloning away the eyebags, liquifying function and healing tool to remove acnes.

The rest i watch Xiaxue's guide to life on Clicknetwork.tv and learn a bit more =D

Given that i'm a slow learner, here's my photoshop-journey and evolution.

GO AHEAD AND LAUGH! Sophie reminded me of this fugly picture just weeks ago. Lolol. BUT BUT BUT, the falsie in this picture is REAL -.- I just don't know how to stick! I stick it in a way it shows the most of the strands. Lolol.

Then it's this -_______-"" Sorry!!! I tried too hard!!! Everything is polished yet blurry.

Then i was into the Koreany touchup. Lol. Clean and clear face. Haha! FAIL!

Then i change direction to the.. Dark feel =(( It lasted for a while cox i thought it makes the pictures look magaziney and expensive, WRONG THINKING. Lolol.

This time i start to do blogshop and starting to appreciate the fact that maybe less is more.
So very little touchup.

Started to play with layers. Hahahah.

Started to take in advertorials for online stores so i cannot over photoshop the pictures but still looking good! Lolol.

After doing photoshop for blogshops (paid to), i started to love my face more and photoshop less. LOL.

BUT SIGH, i discover brushes and i begin to add a lot more to pictures. Lolol.
Plus i was growing old, 23 =(( So i started to act cute by adding more to pictures all over again.

 Bo liao things like wings and blings and sparklies -.-" Sorry! Cannot help it!

So that's that! I'm still learning thou. ESPECIALLY THE NOSE!!! Hate! I chin up only, the picture will be 70% less usable cox the nostrils super hard to PS! Pui!

So anyway! Here's what my bf did after he accepted my challenge to photoshop from the original.

 My bf's version..

*AWKWARD SILENCE*

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .........

WHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!! My boyfriend lousy!

Bf's version of before and after.

He's good with the commercial aspect of photoshopping but aesthetics photoshopping, i better than him! Hahaha ^.^ But he's not admitting it you know!

He say his version, the skin more glowy, eyes look more bright, nose smaller, nose bridge more defined, mouth closed (i don't know why this means it's nicer) and tighter-looking neck!

But HALLO! I basically, simply, plainly think his version looks like a skunk!!! Lolol. While my one looks kind =D

What do you think?!

i prefer your version!! cause i think your bf's version the nose's like way too small, haha. n you look sexier with your mouth slightly apart!

under comparison, your bf's version also looks very weird and funny, haha.

i prefer your bf's version! but the mouth like a bit deformed LOL

Anonymous said...

i think yours is nicer!!!!!!! maybe you can add more glow to it like how your bf did ^-^ and the "head" of the nose smaller can alrdy!

vivianism said...

hahahaha! ur bf's version of mouth is weird. But the nose is awesome!

Anonymous said...

Your version please... he trannified you; pretty scary.

The lip colour is all wrong and the nose is too Michael Jackson skinny. And maybe he wanted to show less of your teeth because they are gappy, but just covering it with the lips is unnatural; should have just closed the gap of the teeth and left them showing.

Desire said...

I prefer your version much more. It looks more natural compared to your boyfriends ver.

Ah your posts are so funny! Love your blog.

xx

I like your boyfriend's version more... but the closed mouth makes it lose points. it would have looked way better if he left it open. lol

Sally said...

Love your version!!! Your boyfriend version people can tell that its fake, but your version, you can just don't tell people that its photoshop and you can get away with it!!! Its so natural, KAWAII

i quite prefer your boyf's version. but the mouth part kinda spoiled the rest of the work though.

and prolly the tip of the nose or the side can be adjusted to give a more natural feel! cause females noses are slightly different than guys!

Your version beats his. You look more natural in your version compared to your bf's version. Plus, he made your lips look way worst than what you actually have, as if someone injected too much collagen into the top lip that it hurts to even look at.

HAHA! Your version overall is better.. But your bf's nose is better.. Maybe you can ask him to just PS your nose for you.. hahaha

i prefer your bfs version but i dont know why he had to close your mouth haha! if he didnt touch up on the mouth it would be perfect

spacey said...

There really was a awkward silence after seeing your bf's version HAHA. I think your version is nicer!! But his nose is smaller. So maybe combine yours + his version's nose and neck :))

Michelle said...

Waliao...

Can't recognise liao... But still, I think you should go beautiful by natural means. If wanna photoshop like tat... Ahem... might as well paste Boa's photo, right?

You are not bad lah...

Bf's version is better. The lashes could be a little shorter and the lip was a bit sloppy, but he's right the mouth looks better closed cause when it's open it kind of gives off the retard look. His nose is done better and the facial narrowing was done much better because it looks more natural than a straight up harsh V shape face. It was thoughtful of him to smooth out the neck too, most people neglect that part and it looks weird.

I prefer your boyfriend one, it makes your face look nicer and glowing. As compared to yours.. it's a little ridged. Hahas. You still look pretty!

Anonymous said...

Apparently yours is nicer! But don't like always 炫耀 lah. You know guys will not like ittttt (: He knew you were better, but refuse to admit. Then 你就給他一個台阶下吧! (:
