Now for a Little Something More!

OK - so the whole skin tone straight retouching thing has been fun (and rather easy for some of you) so now how about a twist? You will notice that the model is a big part of this picture - but in a small way. And she does have some issues that need to be corrected! But what will you do with everything else in this picture.... remembering that the model still needs to draw the viewers attention! Now the last part of the instructions (if you will) ..... no cropping!

Please respect the copyright on all of my images (so I can continue to provide them as practice images for you to use) Thank you for the respect...

I've tried twice to download the file, but PS tells me it is damaged and will only open about 1/4 of it.

Took a try at this picture also. I am not a photographer or retoucher, I settle on what looks good to me, so no doubt there are numerous techinal errors.

Re: Now for a Little Something More!

I just tried it and it worked fine... but here is a second link to the image at a little smaller size... Hope this works for you.

Re: Now for a Little Something More!

Great photo! I thought it was just begging for a some selective coloring...here's my take on it.

I like what you did with the surroundings... the darkened areas hep a lot. I'm having an issue only with the arm fat... I think it still needs a little rounding to be believable. Leave just a little there and then use dodge and burn to create a realistic shadow contour.
