Re: t h e f a c e

I really like your work! beautiful skin! only I would change the color of here eyes.. (i think it was done on purpose to give the 'golden' make up a extra 'it'' thing? am I right?) because its a bit distracting just make it more desaturated.. also how did you get that beautiful golden look?

also I think you meant this link: because the link you gave was only the little size icon.

Thanks for the link
Yes the light in the eyes is intensional, you're totally right.

the golden look is a sumatory of adjustment layers (selective color, hue/saturation and curves) masked merged and sharpened (with high pass). Also masked.

Thanks for watching

Thanks!!! You're the first online person to remember
The eyes ARE overdone.

Funny story: The make up artist really hated my version (I did it just to experiment, not for the client to see it but Charlotte did like it and showed it to them...big mess ).

The lips ... ok
Liquify to find right shape
D&B (With a set of layers) to make them full
Inverted high pass (My way) to give them smother and sharper look
D&B again to shade them properly
The highlights are drawn by hand (and NO I don't have a Wacom yet)

I LOVE Beauty marks... so I always fight clients to keep them... Negotiations lead to compromise: "OK... leave that one"

I'm thinking of starting a blog (Tutorials, short videos, pictures, samples)... wait patiently because I REALLY don't have the time.
