This is a great tutorial!

But what is spraying?

There's also this bit near the end:
Check her out under the eyes, do you see the strokes, the funny highlights where eyebags should be? My doing.
Unless he's still talking about the iris, I really don't see them.

Spray, like this stuff that comes out, turns into thick shiny junk on the print, to make it all pretty. They'd take the print, floppy piece of paper, then mount it on a board all stiff-like, then begin squirting the spray all over it.

Under her eyes, well, she had dark rings under her eyes. Eyebags. Old fashioned retouching worked on the principle of cancelling out a color with it's compliment. So say somebody had a big red zit on their forehead, on a negative it is colored green, it's direct compliment on the color wheel. So I can take red dye on that green zit and cancel it out. If you look close under her eyes, you can make out the brush strokes, sort of white-looking. It was just an old negative I had that I scanned to do eye enhancement on.

Thanks K

Now I understand. The white lines are in both closeups because they were already on the negative before the eye enhancement. That's flawless work, K! They're very hard to notice even after you told us.

Read this one before and used it for quite a while. Found a little touch-up to it:

Paint with solid color and brush the same shape, then applied render/clouds to it. Made it a little easier to "fluff it up"
