This week’s Re-Edit is cosplayed by Danielle_Quinzel, cosplaying as Harley Quinn.
Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel, also known as Harley Quinn, is a character who first featured in the show Batman: The Animated Series. She first appeared in the episode Joker’s Favor and has commonly appeared in all Batman media since. Beginning her career as a doctor in Arkham Asylum, she changed and became Joker’s girlfriend and henchwoman. She loves the Joker despite being abused by him and she will do anything for his approval. Harley is also a good friend of Poison Ivy.
2021 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 photo so I can see if I would make the same steps or make alternative decisions.
After transferring the photo to Photoshop, I push the photo through my sharpen steps I have saved on my profile which includes steps such as adding a High Pass and Smart Sharpen.
I next did a selection of the iris of the eyes, created a new layer and after I desaturated any colour in the eyes, I then picked a blue colour which suited the character.
Lastly I did a selection of the background and gave it a different colour tint.
COMPARING THE TWO PHOTOS
There wasn’t much I wanted to change to this photo in the end. I selected this photo for the re-edit project that I had forgotten what I intended to do.
From what I have done, both version seem to still hold good quality wise and the updated version just adds a bit more to the old version. But overall I am still happy with the old and newer version of this photo.
Don’t forget to use the slider below to compare the two photos but also you view them individually above.
