Like retouching...?

...then you'll love these. Some great retouching here, if extreme in some cases for my liking.

This horrible site keeps making the internet rounds. Porn-grade retouching at best.

Wow... I never thought I could say this... but...

I have to agree with Ant


(That was hard!! )

Sorry Ziaphra... I think that's overdone and not very professional.

nononono. extreme is one thing..... HORRIBLE is another.

One of the biggest problems here is that there is a big lack of even knowing what good retouching is. The site posted is atrocious. Not a matter of overdoing it, it's doing it badly.

Everyday I make 'photo illustrations' for ad campaigns. the retouching is extreme, but the retouching itself has been done well. Realism in the sense of anatomy, correct light, color, etc. has been maintained. The sense of dis-belief is unharmed.

never saw this site before, but the 1st image in the portfolio section, the pen. cruz was funny.....the mouse over is funny, her body shaping.

her shoulders do instant steroids, her collar bone goes flying to the left, and i never saw anyone make a thin woman's forearm bigger!

Fascinating portfolio. Thanks for sharing. I don't know if I think it is all up to par either but it sure was fun looking.

Uck, I don't like his work at all. It pisses me off that some people actually charge big bucks for horrible work and some of the best retouchers are just unknown and charge almost nothing. Sad.

Re: Like retouching...?

I didn't mind some of the retouching. I think we have to bear in mind that we don't know what the images were going to be used for.

Which would bring up a very interesting question.

If someone was going to pay you to do some retouching, would you give them what they wanted, or say that you don't like that kind of look and turn down the work ?
