Degrunge

I wanted to thank everyone who has contributed on the Smooth Skin Tutorials and examples displayed here. I have learned a lot being a part of this forum and every day, I learn something more from someone who knows a little bit more about a particular subject than I do. Just thought I would post a recent project that took me all about 20 minutes, because of a tutorial I saw on here. Thanks folks... always learning!

I'm not that good in this, but just few things that I noticed.
It looks too soft to me, especially for male subject. And you should keep details like lips, eyes etc. sharp I think.

Re: Degrunge

Yeah... it does take on a rather softer look, but I believe that was due more to the huge shift in color correction that they wanted. The original was very very green (flesh tones very heavy in the Cyan). The actual degrunging was only done (painted through) in the actual bearded areas. The color correction and the requested smoothing of forehead and nose have added to the softness I am getting. Also.. this about one fifth the size of the original (800 pixels now) to get it down to the size that I could post. Didn't do any post processing afterwards.I guess if I were trying to best represent what it looks like the larger size, it would be something more like this.

Re: Degrunge

Sorry, but I took these down - as I was talking to our agency rep, and he mentioned that the ad had not yet run. As a general practice, I don't use examples of "real work" until after it has been published and released. Don't want the first time anyone sees it to be on here.

He said "not a problem." But I like to stick to those practices. But my point is still the same. I have learned a lot here and will keep drawing upon the expertise of others in this forum.
