Re: C&c Please

It looks like you copied the right of the face and duplicated it as the left side...

Kinda hawkeye.. Actually the workflow went, level and color adjust.. remove light blemishes in the skin, lighten the eyes, and remove any bloodshot lines that showed on the hi-res pic, lightened the iris of the eyes, bloated the lips slightly and changed the lip color, adjusted the models face for symmetry (yes i realize i forgot to remove the collar LOL) then softened the skin some.

Re: C&c Please

This girl has great eyes! I really like the color enhancement that you gave her eyes, they just pierce through you! The feeling I get from the photo is very 60s, very mod.

There is a series of small-ish scars just above the model's brow that were asymmetrical in the original photo, that have now formed a tattoo-esque mark in the middle of her forehead. Aside from the collar and identical hair patterning between her ear and shoulder, that is a very telltale mark of the method you used to create the model's facial symmetry.

Re: C&c Please

Is there such a thing as too much symmetry? I know I've heard somewhere that the most physically attractive people are the most symmetrical. But there's something a little disturbing about this, and I don't know why. She looks insane, ...or mentally damaged somehow. Maybe I'm just bitter because I have a crooked smile, too.

Re: C&c Please

My opinion is yes. Attractive people are usually more symmetrical that most of us but not perfectly symmetrical. Try it on a photo of yourself and your family members, the results can be very interesting, to say the least.
I prefer her this way.

Re: C&c Please

It depends on which half you use.. A left flip will look different than a right flip.. Both halves offer different looks
Don't forget to use the transform tool to rotate the halves to match better
