I was asked for a very cool toned sleek photo.

Interesting concept. What's the secret behind the animation transitional deal? Is that an app, a script?

You can fill in the hair right above her right eyebrow. Depending on what is requested, I would cover her ear entirely.

Good work overall!!!

It's a gif, disguised as a jpg.

Re: My latest retouch! Be BRUTAL.

It would be easier to critique if it weren't an animated gif; a static side-by-side image is less distracting.

Right off the bat I can see that there is something not quite right with the mouth. The shape/tilt of her lips does not correspond to the facial muscles around it. Also, the upper lip looks flat (color-wise) and 2 dimensional.

The hair could use cleaning up, especially the long piece on the left side and in the back.

The arm area, especially the skin fold on the left side could use some tweaking. The line looks too straight. Even small-proportioned women like the model have a slight curve to the chest there.

You missed a few moles on her skin: left shoulder, left upper breast area underneath the hair, right upper breast near the clavicle (that one has a hair growing out of it).

The right shoulder blade looks a bit too pronounced.

There is noticeable gradation in the background.

I agree with what quadupix said about the ear and hair around the right eyebrow.

The tone of the image is lovely. Nice work overall.

Re: My latest retouch! Be BRUTAL.

I didnt want the image to be too perfect so i didnt worry about flyaways and i definately kept a few moles around for realism. The gradiation actually came from turning it into a gif, i did use a gradiation, but its not noticable. I never thought about covering her ear, good idea!

Insensitive,

My first post here and wouldn't you know it would be a critique.

Great color and overall balance. A couple of things bother me. Her eyes appear to be looking at different places. Her left in particular seems to be looking too far to her left. Also I would like to see the crop a little tighter up her chest, since there really isn't much interest there it's distracting. (I mean change in texture or tone.) :o)

Her upper lip needs a little work, I think it is up too high or too thick on the right side of her mouth.

David
