Re: Retouch this Picture to your hearts content

Hello, 204studios.

Thank you for great image. I thought it'd look great after retouch, so I tried my strenghts and here's the result.

What I did:
- removed imperfections
- softened face and neck
- fixed her right eye a bit
- fixed her mouth
- fixed her right chin
- removed any tiny hair from face
- fixed her eyebrows
- corrected shape of her face and neck with d&b
- corrected skin tone
- added contrast to eyes, hood, mouth
- changed hair color a little
- corrected hood color
- corrected lightness and contrast with levels and curves
That's about it.

I'd like to know what do you think about it, guys.

By the way, if you want full resolution - let me know.

Re: Retouch this Picture to your hearts content

Thank you for the opportunity to work on this photo. I hope your model does not mind; I made a few structural changes.

This is the first time I have retouched anything form this forum and posted an image so I hope the links work ok. Critique is welcome. I spend my days restoring images so it was fun to work on a beauty retouch for a change. I'd love to do more of these. Here is the link to a higher res image for anyone who may be interested; http://i272.photobucket.com/albums/j...CarolHeath.jpg

I can already see a few things I would change. lol.

PS. I forgot to add; I am working on an uncalibrated monitor so hope the colour and exposure are ok?

Re: Retouch this Picture to your hearts content

Hello! I'm new in this game and I must admit I use extremely unsophisticated, lazy methods to retouch. Either way I gave it a try, criticize and comment as much as you'd like!

I gave this girl some EYEBROWS! yeah!
Here we go:

Re: Retouch this Picture to your hearts content

Hi all,

I have had another play, with fresh eyes, and fixed a few of the areas that were bugging me. This time I have hosted the image on Flikr. http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4043/...115614ee_b.jpg
Much lass compression than Photobucket so hopefully a little clearer for anyone who may wish to provide feedback.

Thanks again for supplying such a great image to play with. I have had fun.
Carol

Re: Retouch this Picture to your hearts content

I took another stab at it. This time, I worked on the original size image and tried out a couple new ideas I had about editing. I went with a cool color scheme instead of warm this time.

Fixed the mouth, removed stray hairs, blemish clean-up
Reshaped jaw/chin
Smoothed skin
Enhanced eyes and lips
Added contouring shadows and highlights

The image uploaded here is scaled down, cropped, and saved with relatively low quality. The full-size image is here, where you will admittedly see that the hair-removal process was imperfect.

Feedback for Carol

Not that I'm an expert, but I figure some feedback is better than none. Maybe this will encourage others to jump in.

I like the brightness and color balance in your fix. The reworking of the mouth is great. Overall, it's a very appealing image.

While you made the eyebrow area immaculate, as you come down the face, the texture is gradually more realistic (or "flawed"), and the neck texture stands out even more. So I think more consistency in skin texture would have helped.

The other thing I find to be a detraction is the kind of patchy redness on the upper eyelids.
