Ok this is a friend of mine who I made old just for fun. Would love to hear your thoughts. I've attached before and after here.

This is the first age pic I did.

There are some really sharp edges like where the skin meets the hairline above the forehead. soften them up.

Hi aylaah,

A good part of her skin looked smooth. In deepening her laugh lines, the cheek became too plump. It is said that our facial features keeps growing in our lifetime so you might want to enlarge her nose and make her eyes droopy.
The hair looks great.

I haven't done this kind of retouch, just an observation of myself growing old.

it is actually really hard to age someone!

I did this following a tutorial, and have another copy too big to post here where I fixed the obvious screw up on the hair line and also blended the hair better.

I watched a competition recently on another site which was ageing, and noticed that while usually the calibre of work on that site is incredibly awesome, the age comp was much lower in standard.

Part of me didn't want to go overboard, I wanted it to remain recognisable against the original photograph. And working from a tute and not from another photograph of an older person I had to rely on my own head, lol.

Having seen the parents of this one though I know this is nothing like what she will look like older, lol, it is very much a creative interpretation. I guess to create something 'real' using images of parents would also be helpful.
