Re: Beauty Retouching Help

Greg we all have to start somewhere and here is a great place to acquire skills, with regard to removal of hair, do a search, there are a few threads in here which follow it up. Don't overlook the tutorials either, Byro's degrunge is sort of like a swiss knife technique found here

http://retouchpro.com/tutorials/index.php?m=show&id=213

for the facial fuzz (also search peach fuzz) I used Byro's technique, the rest of the pic is bits and pieces I've picked up here and no it's not perfect

Re: Beauty Retouching Help

Hey you guys, this is my first post, im a n00b lol. I just wanted to take a try, something simple, i smoothed her skin completely, which might not seem too natural, i also played with her eyes a little bit, but i think she ended up looking a little bit crosseyed lol.

I think you should step away, and come back and look at it in an hour. It's all over the place.

yours is great, very easy on the eyes. It is tough because both eyes are out of focus to begin with but the skin looks great.

again this one you should look at in an hour.. it's almost horror movie like. Skin is blotchy and too fake, you made her crosseyed and she's got scary veins. Keep at it.

Re: Beauty Retouching Help

Here's my try on the photo. First I wanted to say this women has natural beauty, although I have never seen so much hair on the face. It was accented alot by the lighting. Another thing was that she has large pores in her skin, which can be very noticeable up close. This is my first time of ever sending a pix here so don't laugh. But, I've got the before and after. What I thought was really amazing about this pix, and alot of you might see this all the time working with natural retouches, is you could see the camera perfect in her eyes, but flipped upside down. Please let me know what you think. If my pix's don't show, then I'm doing something wrong. I'll try to repost. Thanks
