Notice how colors look half way between paintings and photographs.

Here are a couple of examples (if you see a pattern in all these images, you probably see what I mean, if they all look different to you, just forget about it)

one here and 3 more in attachment

thanks for any ideas you might have
It looks as though these images are HDR, and have been tone mapped.
It is highly unlikely that someone spent hours painting and retouching
a little yes

Ektacrow, These are pics I took a few summers ago, before and after effect. Load the first up and look at the pixel arraignment to see if it matches your example images.

The second is close to what your more extreme example is. Not quite right with some colors though.

She has a fine art background. She uses her knowledge of anatomy and form to reshape the structure to be more appealing with dodge and burn.

Re: What kind of technique is this?

Can someone tell me how to get this look???? PLEASE
A polaroid of Sveta Zakharova for Avant Models.

I want to achieve that nice vintage look with that slight red/blue tint in the hair. Today I'm doing a shoot with a model of similar complexion and hair colour.
