i know they used D&B technique and some kind of lightning, but i dont know,
it has a feeling like an illustration but yet photo and the skin looks perfect but not too fake.

What specifically do you want to know? I see regular skin retouching, some D&B to add depth to both the skin and fabrics, a fake background, and most likely some fake fruit(later added in).

I see, your right, the eyes are white but not very fake looking. It looks like after he whitens them, he shades the corners to add depth. It also appears that its not just a stark white, for the white girl it has a slight hint of gray.

I think that style is waaaaaaaaaayyyyyy overcooked. Look at it like this, if you were waling down the street and either one of those chicks walked up to you, appearing exaclty what they look like in the image, what would your reaction be? I mean really, picture a anemic, plastic, wrinkless, veinless, white eyeballed, white toothed alien walking up to you and askingif you wanted a strawberry! LOL

Such is the way we are taught beauty is.

Of course I keep in the ruling that beauty is in the eye of the beer holder.

Re: How to retouch like this!

I think part of the reason the white eyes look ok is the way we percieve color. Without anything else in the photo for our eyes to compare it to our brain interpets it the way it think's it should be.

If the background were of an everyday nature and we had somthing to compare the color to it would come off as looking odd.

This is not based on fact it's based on theory therfore it's open to debate. But It's a theory i have come to believe bears some credability.

i would think it's a vampire! lol haha that happens when you read the stephenie mayer books... well back to the topic, i know that no one is perfect, and i think natural beauty is great, but almost all the time clients ask me to do that kind of retouch for them, they want to look like if they went out of a fashion ad LOL...
