Re: Glamour retouch challenge here!!!!

Granny: hmmm...have to ask her nicely! after se saw how many who looked at this thread she got a bit scared about doing it again so maybe, baby!

CINDAVE: What happened to her lips??? They look very weird from where I'm sitting!

Rharris: thanks for sharing, first the fae looks a bit low on contrast! and the right eye looks very different from the left...maybe change that abit...the background was nice....how did you extract the model?

I know this is a very old thread but, I s'pose it doesn't really matter. It's still here and you are still looking at it. Right?

Re: Glamour retouch challenge here!!!!

Thank you for your comment. I posted this (and plan to post more work) in efforts to find opportunity and work from people who like what I do. I'm not yet sure if that happens here much or not but, I'll give it a go.
I see that you are a senior member and I'm sure that you have alot more experience than I. I am mindful that you are quite possibly a very wise and talented artist. I'm self taught and have only been doing this for 5 years and I'm aware that I have alot to learn. Having said that, I respectfully disagree with your comment.
After working as a professional makeup artist for 25 years. I believe less is more in a natural portrait such as this. When I work on a high end beauty/glamour shot with great lighting, makeup and model, where everything is more extreme then possibly... but with something like this, as long as all the flaws are gone (which hers are), I prefer to not "see" retouched skin. To each their own, I suppose this is subjective.

I genuinely thank you for you reply.
Hagen

Thanks for clearing this up for me in you last post here. The title of this thread is "glamour retouch challenge" I wanted a complete makeover just for the fun and to see talents! I really wanted full makeover from people here, so that we can see how different the before and after picture get's...

Re: Glamour retouch challenge here!!!!

Thanks for the compliment , skin is in tact actually , but you know how it is , low res doesnt do the image justice. I use extract tool in CS3. All the best to you.
Sincerely
Chris
