I LOVE your choice of tones! delightful!

And even tho the skin is not done right...it works!

I still wonder how it would look with perfect skin tho but I can't take my eyes off your version.

Good eye!

Yeah, I was having serious issues with the skin on this one. At 100% there is loads of texture, but viewed smaller everything looks washed out and blurred. I had different layers for sharpening and things which I made the mistake of merging together before doing work on the colours and didn't realise until I was done that it looked off compared to the original. Ah well. I guess that's what practice is for! smile

I wasn't just referring to skin texture. There's bumps everywhere.

What do you mean with:

Well, since this thread was posted 3 years ago, rules changed, you can no longer give critique in this forum. There are 2 sub forums posted at the top of this one that lead to DAR Critiques and Challenges, Contests and Samples
