This one it's for my Retouch+Manipulation portfolio. Do you think it's portfolio material?

I like the enhancements. You made good eyes great. I also like that you used a minimum of retouch to the skin. I dont care for the plastic effect that you get from overdone skin.

Gorgeous, just gorgeous. The original is quite beautiful. The retouch almost looks like a drawing, ala Janesko or someone like that.

...and I mean that as a compliment.

Very nice. Can you reduce the catch lights so we can see more of the color of her eyes?

Beautiful. If you don't mind sharing, what technique did you use to create the subtle glow from the skin?

Actually I like the highlights I even enhanced them

But I'll do it, just to see how it looks.

Thanks

sure

PS CS2

Once you have retouched everything else about the image

Create a new set of layers:

Adjustment layer/Curve/mode: LIghten - Lighten the midles - Layer/Layer Mask - Hide all

Adjustment layer/Curve/mode: Darken - Daken the midles - Layer/Layer Mask - Hide all

OPTIONAL: Adjustment desat layer & Adjustment contrast (This two are for your eyes, they are going to get very tired if you do it with color)

Then with a SOFT LARGE brush you paint white (10 to 25% opacity) on the layer mask.

If you want highlights you paint white on the lighten adjustment layer MASK

If you want deep shadows you paint white on the DARKEN adjustment layer MASK

REMEMBER TO PAINT ON THE LAYER MASK.

Now as the last last steep. If you want the wet look:

Create a new layer on top of everything.

Select/Color range - Here you eyedrop the lighter highlight you have on the image, then you move the fuzzines slider untill you're happy with the amount of image that's going to be selected, click OK

EDIT/FILL/fill with white 100%

With this layer is up to you, but I usually bring down the opacity to 20% and glausian blur it a little (like 0,7%)

My english is not great so this is the best I can do

Hope this helps you

Thanks for looking
