Megl is right...cloning, smudging, dodging and burning...I also work with different layers so I can adjust the saturation and erase what I don't like.

BTW that eugeniorecuenco link doesn't work for me...I would love to see his work...!

Smile my attempt at polished skin

Usually I lurk in the background and just absorb all the knowlege that the artists here share...but today I thought I would try my hand at polished skin (before and after). Please give me your critiques and/or suggestions.

Mr. PAtch

Good ole smudging going on there.. Funny I saw that in a magazine and thought to myself.. Some one actually used the smudging technique for a fashion campaign...

Actually, I didn't do any smudging. I used a technique that I found on a tutorial where you paint the skin with a color lifted from the skin to even out skin tones. Here is the link for that http://www.onemodelplace.com/newslet...ticle7_pg2.cfm

Then did some dodging and burning, added some pores to the cheeks, and a little noise to the entire photo.

Undertaking the Median...

Just throwing a work in progress on top of the pile here....I found some interesting results applying the median filter at varying opacities and blending modes [primarily darken and normal]---then re-blending select elements from the original (after a session of dodging/bleaching).

From what I've been taught, you are to never use blur, smudge, or clone. They change the pixel, which is what you're supposed to avoid at all costs.

But, I guess it depends on how you were taught.

I took this image: http://img243.imageshack.us/img243/213/jancikelq5.jpg from a thread and turned it into this:

I used only dodge and blur on her skin, and a tiny bit of the healing brush, but almost none. I'm guessing the very 'Rush' look has a lot to do with the photographer, too. But, like I said, I really don't know.

veed, nice work, only the skin looks a bit flat and has an odd texture to it -- also the eyes are too white -- just my opinion.

Thanks! Except, I didn't whiten the eyes, actually, just a couple of veins.
