Thanks, Jonas. Got a tough week here, but when I get a chance I'll play around and see if it helps.

You can look at the original pictures if you click the pics to open in a pop up and mouseover the retouched picture.

I guess she's doing it the Amy Desser way by meticulously lightening and darkening blemishes and so on but I wonder if you can recognize any other techniques?

Thx, Alex

Hello All,
Thank You for the "unique skin look"
But these all images are 1 year old, and I need to update my portfolio, so they are not the best example to follow.
All done just with d&b, as far as I remember 1 year ago I didn't know about HP.
"Looks too plastic" as they are just oversharpened
Good Luck

Makes sense. A lot of stuff looks too plastic at web res. I can't really see the texture in them properly at that resolution. I'm glad you mentioned the d&b. As long as I've viewed the forum, people have had an odd obsession with techniques involving high pass filtering and similar effects, and they're just terrible for skin. Almost anyone doing this stuff for a living uses massive amounts of dodging and burning just to push the data around as little as possible. Anyone reading this that wants to challenge me on the statement, you provide the image and I'll prove it.
