Default Selective Color -- David Garibaldi

This guy paints with his hands and then a brush for some details. Takes him about 10 minutes to complete each portrait. Here he is working on one of the Blue Man Group.

I really like everything about this shot. The artists concentration and body language just jumps out at me. Well done Bynx.

The first shot is a good shot but I don't like it. The selective coloring is not obvious to me. In fact, I can't tell that anything has been converted to BW. Black curtains and backdrops are common on a stage. The clothing colors seem normal as do the shoes.

The second photo, which I assume is normal color, seems to confirm my comments on the first. I don't see much difference.

The color/BW issues aside, I simply don't like his looks! If I saw him in person, I would probably try to avoid him.

Here is the original untouched file. It was pretty colorful. I started off just the head and hands in color. Then I put in the tshirt. There are times its hard to tell whats been done and it goes by unnoticed. By the way Cal, could you fix the guys name in the heading. Its David Garibaldi. Thanks.

Not only would I like to meet him, it would be a great honor. Meeting anyone with a great talent is more interesting than meeting most of us dullards. Im sure he doesnt wear those clothes out on the street. In fact they are his work clothes. Or do you just have a thing against bald people?
