Constructive Criticism

Hi all, i'm new to RetoucPro. Just a quick favour, would you be able to check out my Model Mayhem portfolio and give me any pointers and constructive criticism on my retouching work. I have uploaded 2 types of retouching styles to my portfolio (textured skin and the wax look).

Thanks in advance

Re: Constructive Criticism

Welcome ! and I hope you do receive some constructive criticism from everyone.

For glamour retouching, they are all still a bit soft. This works for some publications, but not many.

A quick glance tells me you may have some workflow issues. Much of the lighting/contrast adjustments are done across the entire image. No masking. Work on this.

All the images are converted for the Web. (No embedded profiles.) So, I won't (cannot accurately) comment on color.
