How to remove blemishes from skin on frames of video or animations

Skill Level: Regular / Views: 59 / System Requirements: Project DOgwaffle PD Howler 9

Whether it's a pimple, a mole, ACNE, a birth mark, a scar or a tatoo, facial hair etc..., you may want to hide some blemishes that appear over your subject's photos. Even with 3D renders such as from 3D human animation and posing tools, they might be based on textures derived from real human skin, such as the new generation of popular 3D human characters in HD mode, and they might look just a little too real. We don't necessarily need to turn their appearance into that of a smooth porcelain doll's skin, but it can help to get rid of the most visible distractions. Or in fact to the contrary to place on there of a different type, such as to replace a mole or wrinkle with a dragon tatoo or just a simple heart.... Love your skin! Here is a first look at covering it up, by borrowing nearby skin and placing it over the area that you want to cover up.This uses the Brush Keyframer to do this across multiple frames of a video too.

Speech Bubbles/Balloons - How I Do It

Skill Level: Beginner / Views: 273 / System Requirements: Photoshop, Gimp, Paint Shop Pro, any app that uses layers

I've had several folks ask how I do the speech bubbles/balloons for my "Girls From T.N.A." series. Here's a look at the process I use. This is a PDF file, so you'll need Adobe Reader or another PDF reader. While I use Photoshop for the final composite, Gimp or Paint Shop Pro (or any graphics app allowing use of layers) would work as well. Hope this helps! If you have any questions, feel free to SM me! Enjoy!
