Facial perspective retouch.

Hello, this is my first post, im glad to have stumbled across this nice forum, some really useful hints on here.

I thought i'd post a retouch i did last week, its pretty heavy correction wise from very bad photography but i didn't want to completely wipe out the skin detail etc.

Any comments would be great.

Re: Facial perspective retouch.

I am just a novice and maybe shouldn't even be making a comment.. So, please keep in mind this is all just my observations and might conflict with the look you were going for and is only constructive criticism..

overall you kept the texture and detail. The sepia look looks good..

Lets start at the top..
Things I would have done,
Pluck stray hairs in eyebrows esp at bridge of nose..

Lighten the Iris to separate it more from the Pupil of the eyes

Get rid of hairs cutting ear in half and stray hairs sticking out on other ear

Models left side of nose even out the deep line at crease

models left cheek get rid of dark veins or marks

just above models right nostril smoothed scar and dark spot

where you removed mole on models right side it is lighter than surrounding skin and just under that there is a dark area at the smile line that needs lightening

get rid of scars on both sides and across chin and evened out the chin whiskers and if the model wants facial hair .. maybe thickened it some

All these things are just minor fixes which would probably go un-noticed by most.... If you achieved the look you were going for .. then you did an awesome job!

It is all in the eyes of the beholder.. and my eyes are OLD!

Have a wonderful Holiday season

Re: Facial perspective retouch.

Even if you don't want to edit the picture too much there's still a few more things I would have done... Mostly get rid of those 5 pre-puber hair sticking out of the chin and under the nose... Theres some dark spots on the skin that could be evened out. Give the cheeks a more pronounced bone structure with a little shading and highlights work. Lighten the eyes and fix the eyebrows like granny said. You could also make the jaw line stronger as I believe it's one the things that help alot when airbrushing guys.

If you want to modify the face more, shorten the chin a and fix the nose a little.
