Is she Hot or What?

I found this photo. The lady was still looking good for her age, but I decided to take her on the trip - to the past. The original photo wasn't in high quality so it was quite difficult to work on it. I did it just for fun. Could have worked on it more, I know...

Check it out.

The hair should cast a shadow across the forehead. Otherwise the nose shadow looks out of place and weird.

And (I can't think of a polite way to say this) the cleavage still looks like an old lady's cleavage, though the breasts themselves look young and perky.

I know about the hand. It is because the left shoulder is a bit lower than original, so the fist should also be closer to body. That's why it looks big.
I did put a stronger shadow on forehead, but it made hair look like a wig. Maybe the nose shadow should be lighter. As for the cleavage, I simply softened the shadows. I didn't want the breasts to look like implants.

- 10% smaller left fist
- "younger" cleavage
- nose shadow softened
- hair shadow boosted

I'd do some more work on the shoulder on the left - seems to dwarf the head.

The joint is going to be high because she's leaning on it but the line of the top suggests more bulk than is evident on the other side.

I'm not sure what you mean.

Re: Is she Hot or What?

her head looks far to small and it looks as if she has a five o clock shadow...
