Retouching

I put together this short video showing how I retouch a single image for my drawing series. This technique is not recommended for all forms of photography, but in  this instance it worked. Since we were going for a more painterly look I brushed in some color to help create a more pleasing aesthetic. In a few days I will be creating the drawing for this photograph in illustrator and animating it in After Effects. Usually I do this by hand, but I wanted to try something new to let you all see my interests in video production. I have experience creating animations, stop motion videos, cinema-graphs and video shorts. This is not a skill that I broadcast very often so I hope you all are interested in seeing what I can create :)

Until then here is my retouching video:

Here is the before and after:
