de-aging critique!

hey i was getting some practice at retouching and wanted to make an old woman look very young so here is my try...
btw i just used dodge & burn, healing brush, and a bit of surface blur in 20% opacity just for smoothing a bit.

Looks like you got rid of the wrinkles and sags very nicely - but she still has old-woman hair.

I like it. It's actually hard to remove so much and end up with good skin texture. Managing to get underlying bone structure to look "young" is also hard.
Good job !

Old-woman hair is not just white, it's thin - as in sort of bald.

Re: de-aging critique!

Hi there..good job but I have a few suggestions.

As you get older things begin to sag...to me I think you need to raise the jowls and nose.

Re: de-aging critique!

I agree with you Lurch. She has thinning white hair, something not likely to be found on a younger woman. I would darken the hair color, but would also add some thickness and length to the hair. Sometimes the best solution is to replace the hair completly. Another approach would be to create a hair brush, and then paint in some new hair.
