Re: Just fun retouching

Marek,
Considering it was for fun, I certainly don't see anything glaring that bothers me. If it were me, I would have separated any adjustments for various parts of the face and hair so I could control them more and make each unique. I thought the jaw line was fine before, without the liquify. Otherwise, it is appealing. I'm not sure about the sepia image... it just doesn't jump out at me, lacking a little pop.

Thumbs up Re: Just fun retouching

Nice work, her skin definitely looks nice, but she looks washed out. I would add a little bit of color here and there in her face, just a tiny bit. I agree with you that her puffy jawline could use a slight adjustment, but for some reason yours looks a little stiff. I'd tone that adjustment down. I'm not so sure I'd remove her nose bump at the end completely, because it adds character. I'd just dodge it slightly down.

You did a really nice job with the contouring, no complaints there. One thing I noticed right away about your model is her beautiful lips. In the original, her upper is clogged up with shadows. By removing them, you'll plump up her lip significantly.

Nice work overall. It's so much better than the majority of retouch work seen today. I did a super quick retouch job on the original implementing the changes I suggested.
