Re: New Re-toucher Here

Don't get me wrong this is really intended as constructive: For me the retouches are far too plastic doll looking.

In detail - its always a mistake to take away ALL texture beneath the eyes. Some yes, but not all. There is a natural bag under the eye, which should still be visible, but perhaps/sometimes less visible than shot. This is your main, but common mistake. There are many retouchers making this mistake, some clients are apparently asking for it, I admit but its usually the retouchers own fault. The skin also has been heavily worked but is too smooth. Retaining proper texture in the pores but making them even should be your task - not dodging each pore more or less flat.

In the end the overall effect of this doesn't make the result more attractive, only less so, leading to "Chemical Peel Alien". Fair enough there are professionals doing the same thing, but making the model LESS attractive I think will eventually lead to a backlash against this kind of retouching will be felt by everyone, and no-one will benefit.

While appreciating some of the craft and time that I know goes into what you have done, I think its worth pointing these things out.

Nice work Bianca, I've been a fan of yours on MM for a while now, of both your modeling port as well as your retouching port. Both quite nice! .

Love your work. I see you have posted there that you have no tutorials. Hopefully in time you will share something here. I would like to learn how to give someone a tan. : )
