Welcome to the Party Hazy_Glade
I really like what you have done with the skin on the face shot. I suggest doing some careful smudge work or bluring on the lower lip to get rid of the artifacts. Use two separate 50% grey overlays to whiten the eyes and teeth a bit. Also, the highlights on the earrings are quite distracting. I would tone them down with the cloning brush.
Otherwise, a very nice effort. Keep'em coming.
welcome to RP
i also think you did a good job here. you've dropped a good 10 years off the face. however, the skin is just a bit too smooth to be believed. a bit of texture or blurred noise would help and not lose the other good aspects here.
the lower lip bothers me just a bit also. it's just a bit too 'wet'. it almost looks like she's drooling.
i agree with the earrings. tone the highlights down just a bit. you dont want them to be the focus of the image here, unless you're advertising them.
i love the hair. some great tones there.
you did a nice job around the eyes, except you removed just a tad too much shadow under the eyes. you want to keep some depth there.
now, i'm just a bit curious about the eyes. they are in shadow here. i might do one of two things here to bring them out just a bit more. either sharpen them, or cheat just a bit and lighten them. i'd have to try and look at both ways to be sure, but such beautiful eyes deserve to be highlighted a bit.
the overall effect is really quite good, quite striking. if you posted this on a 'normal' site, most folks wouldnt even notice what i've mentioned. so, that's a compliment
love to see more.
