    Establishing a revered and unmistakeable style is a paramount measure of success for any artist. Canadian photographer and retoucher, Kelly Robitaille has accomplished this feat with her celebrated Whimsical Waif Portraits. On the surface Kelly’s work is dark, surreal, and full of emotion, but it’s more than big eyes and dark imagery that have provided Kelly such artistic success.

    In this tutorial Kelly Robitaille unveils her entire creative workflow for taking surreal and whimsical portraits from concept to realization. Beginning with a concept, Kelly stresses the importance of giving her subjects backstory to create a narrative and enhance character-driven emotion within her images. She then dives into the technical side of her work demonstrating a number of Photoshop tools in interesting and unconventional ways specific to her style, yet easily translated into nearly any style or genre. Using common Photoshop practices like dodge and burn, frequency separation, compositing, blend modes, the liquify tool, and puppet warp, Kelly’s workflow provides a fresh look at retouching as an artful practice more than a trite and repetitive process. Kelly teaches how to manipulate human form with purpose, invoke emotion with characters, and use textures to create depth and atmosphere within images. Finally Kelly challenges you with a homework assignment, providing a RAW image and character story to create an image of your own.

    I'm legitimately curious as to how this tutorial came to be. I honestly can't think of anything less applicable to the vast majority.

    +1 I have no clue if this was an April fool (like the FStoppers Olive Garden fake) or a testing "how far can we go". :D
    Running out of ideas ...how about an Environmental Portrait-tutorial (like https://p-v.club/index.php?threads/creativelive-environmental-portrait-photography.1612/) or Architecture one (FStoppers Mike Kelly is good, but RGG Tony Roslund would also be great). The last 3 or 4 tutorials where just post-processing which do not need any location work aka high costs to produce them.

    Remember that Erik Almas tutorial ...one word -> EPIC ..or the Tim Tadder one.:cool: Those two are very long tutorials that show the process (very nice to see what did not go well) and people complain "make them shorter, I do not need all those fails" but this is pure G O L D. Seeing that everybody puts on his pants one leg at a time must be really eye opening to a lot of people. They think they will find the magic Lightroom-Preset or filter but find out that those pictures are crafted from multiple pictures, like a jigsaw-puzzle and a lot of thinking/getting the props, models, crew and PERMITS before they put the camera on the tripod.:D
