Re: Now to Really test your skills!

Here's my try. I'm a non-pro, so any tips would be welcome!

Re: Now to Really test your skills!

I was challenged to do this retouch with my old, cheap PhotoImpact 8 editor. I'm game! Absolute cloning, D&B, saturated lips, adjusted color with curves, cropped, rotated (looked more like a reclining pose to me), added vignette. Also replaced the missing fingernail and tried to correct the position of rings a bit.

Nice photography to work with.Here's my version. I ran out of time or I would have cleaned up her hair a bit more.

Re: Now to Really test your skills!

im getting bored looking at this thread, why does every one stay away from touching up the markup on the girl, or fixing her lips, eyes, eyebrows. You guys!!!! step it up a notch! you all got the Barbie girl plastic perfect skin down. try fixing the rest of the photo.

Well, I 'm not a MUA, but I'm curious to see what somebody else could make of it. Respecting the original photo.

If somebody has any ideas, feel free to use my original retouching, or do your own, as you wish.

If you want to be a good touch up artist, then you need to be a good MUA, (makeup artist) cainam, but i do like your touch up work.

When you say "you guys" who exactly are you referring to? People participate in these challenges to improve their skills, or just for fun.... not to be put down. As my day job is as a Digital artist/senior retoucher, I enjoy seeing what others are doing.
