Here's mine - I used a method I've been working on for sometime. Just started a new thread describing it.

Guys - If your gonna retouch the picture, at least leave me some crits first, rather than retouching and asking for crits urself lol.

Madclark - You helped allot, thankyou! I will give it another shot useing some of the techniques you mentioned.

Cathy - If im ever on a paid job, i always leave it a day before i send it off as a final.

Duwayne - you did a good job on the acne, but the skin seems to have too much texture for my taste, also the overal picture has this 'hazey/blurry' look to it, which i would tone down.

Daviskw - I really like your version, similar to what i was going for. I would tone down the eyes, and maybe left a lil more shadow.

Ok, heres my more 'realistic' retouch.

Madclark - I tried useing the healing tool sampling all layers, but i didnt notice any difference, how does it effect all the layers exactly? I remove the blemishes first, so its right of the bottom of the layer stack.

I used very little smoothing this time, and more stamp tool.

What do you guys think of this one?

Interesting comparison between your first and second tries. Focusing solely on technique, the second is a better job, but I like the contrast in the first, though the highlights are looking a little blown out.

On the other hand, I have to agree with some of the opinions here in favor of a controlled grunge look. Maybe keep some of the two-day whiskers along the chin and upper lip.

In any event, relying less on smoothing and more on the painstaking detail work is a good thing. I'm not one who says never use smoothing, just make sure is stays a secret.

Re: Teen Acne retouch (original pic inside)

You have to create a new layer right over the original image and that's the layer that you put your healing into rather than a duplicate of the original image or the original image itself. That way you can control the opacity of the healing as well as being able to fix only the healing rather than the whole image. It comes in very handy doing eyes to get a more realistic blend. The "Sample All Layers" option will pull the heal from the original image but it gets applied into the new layer. I've included screenshots as example.

P.S. Make sure that any layers above are turn off when you use this heal to a new layer or the "Sample All Layers" will pull in the effects from those layers as well and really mess things up.

Madclark,
Thankyou sooo much, thats a really handy tip! Thats what i was doing wrong, i duplicated the images rather than just creating a new layer hehe.

Thanks again, really appreciate your help
