This week’s Re-Edit is cosplayed by this_is_gallaghers, cosplaying as GUTS, based off Berserk franchise.
Guts, renowned as the “Black Swordsman”, is a former mercenary and branded wanderer who travels the world in a constant internal struggle between pursuing his own ends and protecting those dear to him.
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.
I transferred the photo into Photoshop and after selecting the armour of the cosplay, used the same technique to enhance latex material and used it on the armour to make it stand out more.
The next step was to use the clone stamp to fill in the gap of the foliage in the background.
COMPARING THE TWO PHOTOS
The 2020 edited photo, looks brighter and the effect used on the armour just looks better. You are able to see the cosplayers face more.
I can see on quick glance, they do look similar between the two photos. Maybe I should have tried to alter the sky to fit with the shows look.
Check out the slider of the two photos to see the comparison.
