Alright I know I'm new to this forum but I have been doing sports graphics for a little bit of time now and need some help on filters for player renders. I was wondering what filter was used for this render. Im guessing some variation of a Topaz but I'm not sure. I posted the original image below and then the updated image with the filter. If you know what filter was used for this render please let me know.

I could mimic that by doing a combination of two layers. If you dup the render, desat it, adjust the exposure to bring out the bright and dark spots a bit more, then either setting it on soft light or multiply. Then, I'd dup the render again, then do a plastic wrap filter, set it to lighten and erase the parts that stick out too much until it looks good.

Thanks for the suggestion. It works ok but doesn't give anywhere near the same effect as what I wanted. Can any of you guys just give me some advice on color correction and filters for player renders?

Or you can use one of the adjustment layers in Topaz.
