Quite unusual to see an image like this without any sort of retouching.

It's testament to how beautiful this girl must actually be to still look so gorgeous without it.

Cheers Chris. I don't very often retouch skin tones unless there are obvious blemishes.

How did you smooth over the skin? Guassian blur brush?

Like the pose, but her makeup looks very heavy, and a bit dark for her natural skin tone. The mod isn't quite how I like it as the shadows are making the skin look darker around the mouth and chin area.

Cheers Beck and Sarah. She did have a lot of make up on and was a tad "orange".

They can't help it can they Grin I don't know why the tangoed look is so popular.

I do like the V2, - softening works well.

I used Kodak Digital Airbrush for mine, - added a diffuse glow, and reduced red a little, - sharpened eyes.

Your a fast learner Danny (V2) lol. When your erasing your mask you might want to continue on to the hair and possibly a little less blur on the neck but thats purely down to taste. Not a bad attempt at all. Paul

I hate that look with the lighter lipstick than the face! And the orange... but it should be a nice portrait. I've given her my treatment and uploaded a mod. I forgot to size it down, so I think the skin a little more blurred than intended.

Cheers Paul. Took about 2 1/2 minutes. Probably should spend more time on it really...!

Cheers Steve

Steve's version works very well, looks natural.

I like Steve's version, but it makes her look a bit pallid and anaemic. I prefer the more natural colouring (obviously it's NOT natural, but more like the colour in RAW) in Willie & Paul's mods.
