I'm going to start putting up some pictures here for practice!
Come back for more updates.

You can use these in your portfolio, but please post them here first and just let me know big_smile

This one I obviously shot (please see avatar) due to the yucky yucky sensor and makeup but I think this is really great practice for skin retouching and such. I'd love to see what you do!

Beautiful model! I corrected the lens distortion, applied makeup that flatters the model's features, and warmed up her skin tone. This image will be great for my portfolio, thanks!

Thanks! Took about two hours. The skin work was done with 80% frequency separation, 20% dodge and burn.

Hi Mike, I love what you did with the skin and the lens distortion.I just want to experiment with the skin color because I love brighter and cooler tones for asian skins.

cheers

That looks much nicer. I'll remember that the next time I'm working on Asian skin, thanks.

Ive noticed you are fairly new and i've noticed all the edits you posted. Serious question, are you for real or are you joking?
