hello, one of my first posts!

shelby: i really think that a blur has definately been used in those retouched photos. i mean, there is absolutely no skin detail. the only way i believe that no blur could have been used, is those are indeed not human models but wax models!

if no blur has been applied, then smudging or something which destroys skin detail has been applied. every is sooooo smooth in the photo. maybe the guy is very protective of his sectrets -- who knows?

anyway, i took a two minute crack at it on your avatar photo, and here is what i've come up with. if you like the technique, let me know and i will post it. it's very easy.

cheers and good luck!

Why don't you post some of the steps you have made to achieve this result? I'm sure there are a lot of people to give hints and advice to improve your skills to the max!

Thank you Patrick,

infact, the skin its very flat. I don't work in the shadow zone for avoid the flat "effect".
When I have a bit of free time I post some pics.

Bye

good

Looking good snook

Good for us to play around with ideas

A good starting image is alway important.

It seems that healing, then surface or lens blur, then bring back some texture using sharpening, then adding glow is the answer

Otherwise you can use smudge rather than blur.

Painting over the skin with a paintbrush at about 5% for smoothing can also work.

Any other ideas?

Snook, I'm also very curious as to what you were doing with the copied red layer? Were you applying some sort of noise reducer? or is it a blur method?
Great image by the way.
