    quack, welcome to RP.

    i'll just mention two points here. one, the skin looks a bit too smooth... no pores or texture. there are a ton of threads about this, so you can look around for help on this. i'll just mention that maybe a mask on the skin with some added monochrome noise might do the trick.

    and two, i'd crop the image. all that stuff on the right is of little relevance to the picture. crop it out.

        Hello all!
        I won't call it beauty retouching as it is just a part of her face. I found this pic while searching some files to practice retouching. I just gave it a try. I confess that this is not just d&b, several shortcuts used in it. Please let me know what you feel about it. Thanks!...

        What is the new way of retouching skin?
        by Flint123
        Hey everyone,

        I'm new here, and I have been reading a lot on RetouchPRO. I like to retouch as a hobby, but one of the things I have noticed by reading these forms is my way of retouching skin is outdated.

        When I retouch, I like to use the clone brush at a low opacity,...
