Re: Face, eyes, lashes retouch

You just blurred her face and you gave her a pair of eyelashes. Nothing special. Beside that, on web format even my grandma can retouch a picture. It's all about details.

Re: Face, eyes, lashes retouch

a little too overdone! Unless someone specifically asked me to remove all texture from the skin, I wouldn't do it. I like to clean up the skin, but at the same time, try to keep the texture so it looks natural...like a real person.

Re: Face, eyes, lashes retouch

Miss Odessa, good work! However, the eye lashes seem a little too good to be true for me. I looked at your retouched photograph first, and I could immediately tell that they were 'photoshopped' in. Ashley's however seem a little more realistic, and less obvious. I also really enjoyed the slight brown upgrade to the hair that you did Ashley. Nice work to you both!

Re: Face, eyes, lashes retouch

I agreed with some opinions that your retouch is a little overdone. Look at the ashleybreeanne's retouch to see the difference. Yes, your retouch is more attractive, but I think that ashleybreeanne's one is more natural, not so plastic (better).

You should use less blurring and a bit more healing brush.

Ofcourse the style of retouches depends from what photographer/retoucher want to achieve.

If this is what you were aiming for you've succeeded.

Anyway.
Even though it didnt have to be put the way alot of people are putting it,
yes you did smooth out the skin a bit much.
But either way, it still looks very nice.
I love the lashes, they add something extra.

Did you ever stop to think that maybe she wasnt trying to make her look like the cover page of vogue. It clearly stated that she was using it "TO PRACTICE ON" I dont see anything about trying to look proffesional or advanced. She wasnt shooting for something special, just shooting for the basics. The topic is Face, eyes, lashes retouched. And what did she do? She did what she said she was going to do, she retouched her face, her eyes, and her lashes. Your expecting more from her than what she told you she was going to give you in the first place. Good or bad.

Re: Face, eyes, lashes retouch

Miss, I think you did a fine job personally. Only thing yours may benefit from is trying to retain some of the skin texture in the specular areas. I think yours has much more depth in the face then Ashleys does however.

As far as the eyelashes go, they look fine, although a bit symmetrical. Maybe adjust a couple lashes on one eye to get rid of the mirrored look.

Would have certainly been nice to see a little more tact in some of the critiques i've seen in this thread.

All in all, nice job Miss.

Retouching is done with my retouching Photoshop action kit. I wanted to see how it turned out here and I'm happy with the results. I am still learning!!
