If you’d like to be a part of the series check out my video on “how to get feedback and what’s coming to the channel” for submission info. I demonstrate a “worst case” scenario here as I accentuated fringing while pulling the mask, hopefully your fringing isn’t this bad, BUT, if it is… here’s the fix!

Huge thanks to Ernesto Rodriguez (IG: @errevizualart) for submitting this photo. You did a great job on your initial mask as we saw in the feedback video. I think that some of the mid tones in the initial mask may have been the problem you were running into OR you may have forgot to create a clipping mask when painting over the fly-a ways. Either way you were close, hopefully this helps!

The FIX IT IN POST videos will be specific demos/tutorials based on things that you may be struggling with on YOUR photos or work flow! I can use my photos all day, BUT, it may help to see how I’d work through the issues you’re having in your image/process. These images will be done in tutorial form so you as an artist can follow along while giving other artists a chance to learn as well. NOTE: PLEASE EXPLAIN IN THE BODY WHAT YOU’VE TRIED! I greatly support problem and critical thinking as an artist thus trying to find a solution before asking for help. You not only learn faster that way, but it trains your brain to start making more decisions and less mistakes as an artist.

Please leave your name and IG handle in the email, that way I can credit properly!
