Thank You List!


ZIAPHRA: Nice work, too much glow for my taste, but love the eyes! The picture would hav ebenefit frome the eyse if the whole picture was a bit darker...

I.ILIEVSKI: The brown colour is abit strong here, but nice work on th eyes and the new colour on the headthingy! Cudoz for keeping the birthmarks

PETER S: Nice browntan, but abit too much of glow for me! The pictures lacks abit sharpness bcus of it! Nice work

MIGUEL: Nice work on the skin, but her left eye is abit to manipulated...I see what you were trying to do...her right was nice, but left eye isn't so good...Nice work only flaw is the eye! Cudoz for the eyemakeup!

PRETTYPIXAL: Wow, this more of a manipulated retouch picture than glamour! You have tried to get a sort of goth look here...It works, but abit much of colouring around the eyes and the iris!

PLUGSNPIXELS: Here is to much of everything! The glamour retopuch isn't following it's right path! More of a experimental manipulation here! Nice try

CASSIDY: Nice work on the skin...The colouring was very good! light and easy to my eyes!

OLTENIUS: A more experimental retouch here...the skin isn't retouche after my standards...But the effect gives a nice felle to the picture, the makeup adds to the weirdness here...Good on ya! Thnaks for sharing

CASSIDY: Nice crop here, more details to the head! Nice job on the skin, but people here haven't tried to fix the hairs in her face! miss that!

SYD: Nice eye makeup, the sklin is almost there, abit to much of effect on the retouch on the skin! Some places you see the skin some places not! But a good job by you, SYD!

BADMIKE: Nice skin, abit to much effect...The glow effect isn't for my taste, but it works well...The gloww effect adds areas on her skin looking pale...That's not good! Nice work on the skin!

DWTHOMP: Nice an d clean on effect, but I feel her face it bit weird...there are areas on her skin that looks darker then other areas...Like she is dirty...on her cheeks, round her mouth...Thanks for sharing...

LEUALLEN: The silver feel over the whole picture is great! I feel it's abit too much, the picture lacks abit of sharpness, maybe that's all it takes to get a better version?! The eyes are a nice effect, but would beneift abit more if the picture was abit darker! Very nice job !

NANCYJ: Nice job on the skin, but i feel the dodging here is abit to much! The picture came out like on a plastic model! But I love the skin!

NANCYJ: This was nice also, but teh skin is showing to much effect on the retouching! Thanks for SHARING, NANCYJ!

DKCOATS: Nice blush effect her on the cheeks! The skin retouch is ok! It looks like everyone here today have used the BYRO De-grunge trick! Nice color on the eyes!

RAY12: Nice background! The eyes came out looking abit weird! You have tried to reduce the gap between the eyes and teh edge, but it shows to much! The skin on her shoulders looks very nice, but in her face it's abit flat! Maybe a combination between those 2? Thanks for sharing!

BELLA: Nice work on the skin! teh colour overall is abit greenish! The dodging on her right cheek is ging her face a somewhat dirty feel! Thanks for sharing!

PHOTOVAGRANT: Nice overall light here! abit yellowish! The crop is abit of her body a wrong feel! her shoulders seems bigger on here right than her left! Thanks for sharing!

LQQKER: A very interesting approach here...scary eyes! But her skin looks very "unstable"...some spots here tha are darker then other areas!§ The crop and bacground adds tention! would love to see a drake version on the face ass well and better retoc8uhing on the face! Thnaks!

PAVEL123: thes to approaches was very white! It looks like you hav tried to make my grilfriend look like a clown that does the mim tricks? Abit more work on the skin and another round the eyes to get more detals...maybe that would help! Thnaks for sharing!

DOUDIMMEZ: Nice work on the eys, but abit more subtle effect would help more! Cudoz for adding teeth! But these tteth diddn't do the picture any good! The mout was too BIG and the angle of the mouth made it look way of! GOOD JOBB ON THE SKIN! The skin colour is too dark! I smell a new versin from you! Thnaks for sharing!

CMYK PHOTOS: Nice backgrounds on thes pictures! And the feel to pictures is very good! NIce job here! But you have narrowed the face down! The face looks looong nad the mouth is too big! Maybe a new version without the narrowing would do better thanks for sharing!

gerry, i hope i'm not too late for the "judging" -- here's mine -- i did A LOT of eye manipulation, no offense to your girlfriend -- she is very pretty -- it just seemed like it was more of an angle type of "gap" -- any way, hope you like it.

Hey everyone, this is my entry. What do you guys think? I wanted to give it a high-fashion feel, while still making it look natural. Then I did a quick make-up add, to see what I could do with it. I think I gave her a subtle Twiggy feel. At least, I hope I did...
