ANTModel Contestant retouched

Hey guys, I saw this unretouched picture of Nnenna (she was on America's Next Top Model, season 5) A real Nigerian beauty.

Here is the link

And here is my attempt.

I dodged and burned, used a little tiny dose of noise & scratches, and just tweaked colors and lighting. BUT, I asked her for a copy of the original, so I had a MUCH larger file to work on, so I was able to keep the skin integrity more.

But let's see some other takes on it.

Re: ANTModel Contestant retouched

I'm satisfied with the result, but hopefully some people will give me some advice...I haven't used any filters...only finished of with a copy to overlay blend mode...

Re: ANTModel Contestant retouched

thanks...I'm pleased, but the file was abit small, so the in depth was abit difficult for me to get good...I used dodge and burn, also som painting to get rid of the difficult skin that didn't go away with dodge and burn...

Painting with 1px pen and same colour on the sam earea helpt me alot...have anyone any advice on that technique? is that bad???

Gerry
