I like your work. Btw the baby giggles too

Re: Mar 07 Contest Discussion

As one of those who offered 'some washed over, airbrushed-in other person's idea of what' the little girl may have looked like I just want to suggest that probably the best reason for putting a face on the girl in this contest is to gain experience doing it, because somewhere along the line you'll be asked to do something like this by a client who wants a face rather than a washcloth with ears, and you'll both be happier if you feel confident about giving it a shot, instead of explaining that as a 'professional restorer' you aren't allowed to do that.

Also as one of them people

I used the face of the youngest child{that had a face} in the photo because most siblings usually favor. Katrin Eismann books recomends this technique.

Good point, Doug. The only reason I didn't try to restore the child's face more is because I didn't have time. You never know what a client is going to want, so it's good to try it both ways: both the purist approach and artistic.
