Critique Please!

I've really settled on retouching for a future profession and have been practicing like crazy.

I've seen many people retouch this photo (including big names like Natalia Taffarel)....so I thought I'd give my spin on it.

Before: http://www.riot-music.com/wp-content...efore-copy.jpg

After: http://www.riot-music.com/wp-content...after-copy.jpg

I concentrated mostly on the face and skin...treating it basically as a beauty retouch. I didn't necessarily finish completely, but I liked the point where I was at and wanted to know things other people would fix change..as well as any suggestions on fixing color in the hairline (which I can't seem to master completely yet)....

Good work. The only thing that stands out is that she has very sharp front teeth!

Good job! You might need to fix the shape of the ear- that`s my opinion. Where did you find that image (original)? I want to download and practice on it The girl is very pretty.

Re: Critique Please!

I'm by no means an expert so take my advice as you like. I would probably try and fix her eyeliner a bit she's got more above her lashes on one side compared to the other. Also though I like the highlight on the eyelids it looks a tad blurry to me. I agree with onered about her teeth seeming very sharp but they look fairly sharp in the before as well.

Otherwise awesome job! I really like what you have done so far.

Re: Critique Please!

I think that you did a good job. For another prospective, this one is to my own subjective tastes regarding skin color(s), darker BG to make her stand out, etc.

Cheers.

Re: Critique Please!

Nice job, 2 things, there is a sharp highlight to the right of her right eye, maybe soften this, and her hairline is a bit blotchy in some parts more saturated than others.

Peach fuzz could do with some addressing, perhaps?
