Please critique,

Hi,

I was hoping some of you folks could critique a retouch I just done. My objective was not to do anything too glamerous etc, but to improve her so that it looks like she she would look when she had groomed herself, as opposed to just woken up. Could not be bothered to fix the all the stray messy hairs, but did remove some of ones on the face.

Your feedback is much appreciated, what was good, what was bad, what could be improved, or what should of been done, tone, colour etc. Also if any of the pro retouchers could give it a grade (A+,A,A–,B etc) as if was I was at the level of a second year Uni retouching student and this was one of my assignments.

Thanks

Moe,

Ohh yeah, heres the link http://www.flickr.com/photos/3258836...59657/sizes/l/

Size was reduced, and flikr reduced it even more, so some details and changes not as obvious.

Thanks. One thing I did'nt do was retouch the transition area between hair and forehead, but tbh if it was a distinctive pimple that added character I would of left it.

What should I of done to the upper lip?

Re: Please critique,

the nose's shadow on the left of the pics looks still a lil bit weirdo when you look overal the whole image

at the bottom of the month there's some areas who looks messed up: some retouch pattern !

Re: Please critique,

USM just the Iris on both eyes.. 150, 2.5, 0 (to make them pop just a bit)
cover the white in the hair below the chin
IMO the pimple does not add character

Good Job!

Re: Please critique,

The lips are overdone,with to hard lines. And this is how I would do it.

Re: Please critique,

i use color range to select the lip area instead of paint out with brush (don't want any hard line). here's my version. going for a natural look.
