armpit from hell

Hi there retouch pro peeps. I lurk fairly often, don't post all that much

I have run into a really wack looking armpit vagina that I can't figure out how to tackle. Help? Ideas, techniques, whatever are super appreciated.

heres the image it came from - I think just cropping the armpit out makes the image proportion/flow look odd.

Thank You

Try the clone tool at 10% opacity, change the source frequently and paint with a large soft brush. Mask the leather back in to get smooth skin color up to the edge.

Re: armpit from hell

Hi There,
I'm kinda new in here. I couldn't find a way to upload the image as it is. Web site allow me to upload image up to 100KB. I had to resize the image. Please take a look. This is the best i could do in a short period of time.

Thank,
Burak

Re: armpit from hell

Its not the armpit from hell, did you try to take it off? Normally its just a bit of work with the clone and healing tools.

I did a quick one here, you've got to keep the fold from the armpit or else it looks weird...

It still needs work, a bit of D&B to get the skin correctly but since its just a quick try I got lazy...

Anyway next time just do it first, sometimes when I see stuff like that that I have to retouch I say "its super hard, or impossible" but the truth is once you start you find it that it isn't as complicated as you thought...

Re: armpit from hell

This is also the full image. And again I had to resize the image. If you could show me the way that I can upload the original image I would.

Thanks,

Re: armpit from hell

Here is my shot. took maybe 5 min

i used the patch tool to remove the labia and replaced it with part of her neck, then used some soft light and color layers to try to tweak the colors down a little...

the patch tool kicks ass for getting rid of armpit vages

You have to stay under 100k, save for web/devices sometimes is ok; if it's not possible to stay under 100 and keep quality upload it to imageshack/flickr/yoursite and post the link here

Re: armpit from hell

Thank You

A fresh brain this morning and some attention to detail has it fixed well enough.

While we're here, can I get a critique on the retouching overall? I would love it.
