p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Kenya----Maasai Warrior


In an authentic village where this Maasai tribal "family" lived (probably about 75 people lived there).
I've tried everything I can to bring out a little detail in the man's facial shadows- without making his very black skin look terrible.
Help is requested, please.
If you can improve on this- please go right ahead- and post it here with explanation as to what you did (in simple language if possible ).
Thanks in advance- Charlie

He doesn't look like he's looking for a fight let alone a war....but he does have a nice outfit

Thanks for commenting, Eric.
As you know, the Maasai were forced to give up their warrior/lion-hunting ways, and not too long ago.
Now they raise cattle- but down deep, I think the men are quite capable of being warriors again.
And when a few arrived in our remote and primitive camp site in the middle of a moonless night and they carried no light with them- only traditional spears and their senses and I could hear lions roaring "out there in the dark somewhere," well, I was convinced they were still warriors .

Happy Holidays Charlie
I played around with your picture in CS3 and Neat Image, but couldn't get the eyes the way I wanted them. Once I removed the noise, I was able to blend the image using the paint brush, soft brush and clone feature.
Have a good day,
Jim...

Thanks, Jim.
Some pictures aren't worth a whole lot of time and effort, I guess.
Or maybe the man just had a goofy look about him that shadows blessedly hid .

I think that might be a zone II, Charlie. I do love the tones in this though. A striking looking gent.
