Dolly girl restoration

Hello. As I said before, my favorite restoration is the portraiture.
This is some job I enjoied working this weekend for a local client. The damages were painted with the clone brush. Clothes and arms need the path tool / make selection / painted too, for more precision. Dodge and burn for the shadows and volume. The hair texture was done with a hair brushes pack I download (are free) from http://www.russellbrown.com/tips_tech.html. Special thanks to David Nagel http://www.nagelprobe.com/ creator of these priceless hair brushes.
This is the baby girl before - after:

Re: Dolly girl restoration

Florin,
I know that you said previously that you have been working to perfect the hair on your restorations. I particularly like the hair in the sections that I circled on my attachment.

To me, it would be nice to see some additional highlights on the top of her head, where her hair is rather dark. The areas that I have circled represent what I believe would be very nice highlights. Do your hair brushes allow you to duplicate these highlights to the top of her head ?

Just wondering. You have all the other features perfected.
