It's all good man.

It's all good man. - student project

After hunting around online for an image to work on I came across this nice promo shot for Better Call Saul. As its due back on Netflix soon (well, in 2020) I thought it would be a good one to work on. Below is the original image, plus the b&w, masked and retouched version. I added some vector splats to cover the hard crop of his body.

Finally with the composition complete I tried a selection of gradient maps to see the different effect they had on the image. I am not sure which of the final 3 I like best, but here they are!
