This week re-edited photo comes courtesy of StitichKitten and BlueEyedValkyrie as Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy.
They first met in the 1990s cartoon, Batman: The Animated Series. Harley Quinn was just dumped by the Joker and she was trying to prove her worth to him by stealing from a museum. Poison Ivy was also there on her own heist, and the rest is history for them.
2020 EDIT PROCESS
I started with the basic changes I always do, by adjusting the exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, HSL, and etc. Throughout this project of re-editing my older photos, I do not refer to the original edited the photo so I can see if I would make the same steps or make alternative decisions.
The next step I decided to do was to change the aspect ratio of the image to 16:9, to give it that widescreen look to the photo.
I have discovered that I lean towards a lighter look to my photos and so made sure the background is suitable lit, making sure eacj corner isn’t in darkness.
Transferring the photo into PhotoShop, the collar around Stitich Kitten I thought I would neaten up by flattening it using liquify tool making sure any changes look natural.
I felt the red sign in the archway was too distracting, so using a mixture of the clone tool and patch tool to remove the sign.
I then started to work on the smoothing the skin and paintwork on both cosplayers as well as adding enhancing contouring on them.
