Rate my Retouching

I can't believe I haven't come across this site sooner. I am about to graduate the Columbus College of Art and Design with a Degree in Advertisement and Graphic Design. I am searching for a career with Limited Brands as a retoucher. First off I would like to get some feedback on my retouching. I am almost 100% self taught.

Thanks and I hope to talk to everyone more!

-Jessica

Re: Rate my Retouching

Good start, but skin is splotchy, particularly on the chest.

Bring more light and fix the white balance on this shot. It seems too dark and red.

Re: Rate my Retouching

Hello- Welcome to the Forums
I do see a bit of a magenta/red tone and it may be a little dark. Other wise the skin texture looks pretty good- the chest is slightly splotchy and shoulder on our right looks a little weird.
I had a go with some Curves adjustments- that shoulder is still a bit wonky.

Re: Rate my Retouching

yeah it looks much better with the adjustments... I planned on going back in and bringing back the texture in the hair. thanks for the tip!

Re: Rate my Retouching

Her right clavicle (collar bone) looks wrong in the after image, like she broke it and it wasn't set properly. It shouldn't dip so far down in the middle and the symmetry is off with the one on the left.
