Re: Critique for the newbie.

I think maybe you have your order reversed in the first set of samples... unless you added the face bumps and rouge on your retouch..

On viewing your retouches I could not identify the tectonic plates you referenced... I am NOT smarter than a 5th Grader so another clue as to the area you meant might be helpful

Tectonic plate removal usually means Blurring or obliterating the delineated lines or junctions separating them and I could not see any delineation... I thought the retouches looked pretty good except for loosing some color and definition/contour

If you meant the pores... sposed to keep em..... do not want Barbie look... use D&B
If you meant the highlights... I use a cheat.... the Patch tool, faded

Want Smooth skin... (Not D&B) I use Kent Chrisiansen's " Skin Fix" (download) a set of actions for smoothing skin. Also found <here> (scroll down to find it)
.. This action is a combination of Maurice Hamilton, Russell Brown, byRo's de-grunge trick and KentC methods all rolled into one action..
(I generally use the "Paint Soft Skin" at default settings)
