Ok, what about if you rate it outta 10? Once for amature, once for pro.

I'm figuring amature 8, pro 5???

Take your time. Spend 30 mins cleaning the skin with healing and the clone stamp. Then dodge and burn for an hour or two. The bigger the file the more time you need. For high end beauty images we get a day or two to do a face.

Re: Ok I lied.......Be Harsh this time

Hi there. My eyes are drawn to the nose jewelry.....it looks more like a blown out white speck or bad pixels than a piece of jewelry. (is it a diamond or a silver stud, can't tell?) The blue area next to her head on the left side also pulls my eyes that direction since the other side is totally dark. Guess to me it's kind of a balance thing, but since the lines are blurred, maybe that isn't that bid of a deal. Have fun!

Re: Ok I lied.......Be Harsh this time

Yeah I think I can see the areas for improvement, it's just taking it to the next level of detail, ironing out the finer problems. 2 days to do a face? Woah! Well if you're getting paid for it then I imagine that's not a problem. Plus I bet you're all using Wacoms I reckon 10 mins for a skilled user on a wacom is like an hour with my mouse!
Oh yeah regarding wacoms, do I really need an A4 or would an A5 do? I figure it's not like I'm using it as a painting device so i don't need those long strokes you can do on an A4, plus if you zoom right in you're increasing the resolution of the wacom because it's relative to what's being viewed right?

Re: Ok I lied.......Be Harsh this time

Ant, instead of telling someone "yeah, that looks horrible" why can you phrase it a little nicer like "that may be the tutorial that is most comforatable to you but it's not the best. (insert a link to a good tutorial or your own here), this would help you hone your skills a little more." i just think you can sound really mean sometimes....and i'm in no way trying to get into with you at all because you haven't done anything to me....i just think you should choose your words more carefully next time because you never know how your words will impact the person reading them.
