  • Face retouche with a big pores

    Hi guys
    I'm retouching portrait and got a question
    So I've already did D&B getting rid of a small defects and making pores less visible. If I go on with D&B I will have "plastic skin".
    The question is - How to make skin look more attractive and natural in the same time?

    I would work on the low frequency layer to get rid of skin flares & balance the color.

        DNB is about enhancing contrast. Key to not looking plastic, is to preserve sharp transitins where they naturally exist, like around the nose bones, eye bags, chin, lips...

          To me the pores aren't too large or too rough. You probably just want better uniformity, but it's very easy to overdo it. I would probably start with the greatest outliers when smoothing. You should try to maintain a steady hand, and you should pay attention to which ones you adjust. At a broader level than this, you'll also notice certain boney structures and facial muscles. While doing this work, you also have to watch out for those things.

              Natural is not the word. Pleasing could be, appealing also. The whole point of retouching is to go from natural to art.

                Smooth Face Not Beauty Smoothing Tho
                by _ManWithNoName_
                Any tips for smooting features of a face. A tricky one, not simple and probably way beyond me.

                I want to completely smooth all the features of a face out, so there are no eyes, no mouth, no anything but make it look like it's just a face with no features.

                Any thoughts?...

                by fotogen
                I spent 6 hours editing this image that I photographed myself. At the very end, I do not like the results and I can not put my finger on what is wrong with the image. Can you please critique this image, be honest please? Originally, during the D&B process, I had destroyed some of the natural...
