Re: Beauty Retouching Help

looks good jennifer but there is noticable blurring in her hairline, and that vein in her eye has got to go...

You've lost your color. Her skin's become, essentially, a duotone. Also very dark and a bit grimey, like a cmyk image looks if the black plate is converted wrong and ends up contaminating the midtones, quartertones and highlights. Retouching isn't too bad. Whatever moves you made were in the right direction. But try to avoid moves that damage the color.

Re: Beauty Retouching Help

thanks for the tip edge. i was basically going for a warm tan look, with lots of shape. i guess i went too far with the color and not far enough with the retouching.

Re: Beauty Retouching Help

Not sure how much this valuable information is all worth. Lets just say if one day you all get royalty checks in the mail, it might be from me I was about to post one of my images before, after reading this thread to it's entirety, I'll take another crack at it. Having problems getting the little variations of skin tone to match with out loosing texture. I will put up both the touched up version and the OG for those who want to take a swing at it.

Let me thank all the contributors to this thread, especially cainam and all who helped get him to his latest attempt.

I did noticed the eye balls went a little flat or soft( I don't know), but I am no pro to start criticizing just yet. Just something to maybe revisit and keep this thread going strong.
