        Your links are truncated. You will need to fix that before anyone can view them.

              I would work out the lines under the eyes and darken the lashes more. I personally don't know how to work with curly hair like that, but I'm sure there has to be a way of making it look more refined or something? Otherwise though the skin looks awesome I need to practice some techniques for that myself because I can't do it haha

                hey thank you for you reply,

                the curly hair is a competition for me too. i'm not really sure how to handle it and i don't know how much has to be done.

                i hope that someone else has an idea.

                looking forward for any help.

                  Hi Allen, I think that the philtrum (shape under one's nose) is a little too pronounced and defined. Perhaps tone it a bit.

                    It's not atrocious or anything, but it feels very inexperienced. There are a couple places where you only removed half of a blemish along the jaw. The skin bright area to shadow transitions have a lot of strange casts. The eye makeup is a bit weird. I don't know what color it should be, but it looks smudged in spots and you have a lot of problems where it meets the lashes. Some of the facial hairs should be toned down more. Lip line needs a lot of work. I'm not sure what I would do around the nose, but right now it's deep shadow very defined, then greyness. If other things were fixed it might not bother me so much. You have a lot of messy cloning where the hair meets the cheek/jaw. It needs to maintain volume around the nasolabial fold. You took it out more on one side than the other, and it looks flat. This is very common though. This is just not what I would want to see overall. Nothing is very consistent in terms of skintone or hairs. Brows, lashes, splotchy skintone. I would probably make those eye bags less heavy, but it still has to ease in. It can't look like she has no lower eyelids. It needs to be done a bit more precisely with better attention to detail. I think you should take a look at published work that you really like, and compare what they've done to what you have done. Just getting a few things down would let you improve this 300%.

                      Hey Klev,

                      thank you very much for taking time and writing down a detailed analyze.
                      Could you circle a few spots on the image?

                      The part of hair cloning(s) - jaw, etc.
                      Transition between highlight areas and shadows
                      eye bags
                      grayness of nose shadow

                      This would really help me to visualize more what you wrote.
                      Thanks in advance.

                      Allen Turner
