Desaturation of face images, with simple Cut & Paste and Layer Blend Mode changes.
A little Liquify to emphasize the baby's smile, and a bit of touch up painting to even tones. (5 years and 2449 days ago)

The dimensionality of the baby head really works, but the "mom head" needs to have the same quality...right now she looks like an inflated balloon. Suggestion would be to do some dodge/burn on her, or shading & highlights on adjustment layers. GL author.

author says:

Good call, CMYK, thanks!

The light intensity on the plant and kid face is different. You should add some highlights on the baby's cheek and nose (with some bright green or pale yellow) to get rid of this. good luck

I see you've changed her face. I like this one much better! She relates much better to the baby. Cute idea nicely done! (Just one tiny nit pick, there's some edges showing on the right and lower right side.)

Swordfish and Spaceranger, THANK YOU so very much!
"Too close to the trees (or tomatoes) to see the forest (or edges and lighting)..."

It always helps to have other eyes to spot the small things. That's what helps me improve!

Thank you again!

Red tomato face looks flat, since this isnt a very original concept there are lots of tutorials to show you how it should be done, hope this helps.

Good luck

author says:

Nice tutorial, Geexman, but the result is too "bright" for this image. Trying to erase the forehead and cheeks made the face too dark, going back to the "balloon" effect CMYK pointed out with the previous face, and erasing back to the original image made the teeth and the eyes WAY too bright...Oranges and tomatoes just don't quite work the same...But thanks for thinking of me and trying to help.

That baby is just ADORABLE! The woman's cheeks look nice. I just don't like her teeth and eyes. But the baby gets high marks from me!
