lots of layer work here.
healing tool for skin.
selected sweet babys lil face and lightend a bit with curves, also used selective color to tone down red/yellows.
selected background and did a blur also cloned out some of the distractions. I chose to leave it natural for the most part.
to slim young grandmothers's face:
hard to explain..and I'm not too sure I'm in love with my work but here goes...
selected chin and created three duplicate layers, used transform to rotate layers seperately and create a new jawline. merged just those three, brought the opacity down and used the healing tool to blend it all.
burned near hairline and near neck for a "natural shadow" effect. Dodged cheekbones and forehead.
lightened whole image with curves.
like I said..it's "ok" but I'm not completely satisfied. I am however..finshed trying :0)
Um...would someone say hello to me? comment? something?
