I am new to retouching.  I have 64 bit PS6 and after effects, I have lightroom 4.
I have photomatix pro

My retouching interests are more to expand on an image rather than fixing it up.  No other goals than to learn and do fun stuff at the moment.

I have seen folks speak of outside plug ins from Alien skin and Auto FX and many  others but not knowing anything I was hoping you could tell me what plugs ins are a must in your work flow.  Not so interested in "gimmicks" but some fun stuff like this which I shot, Bunny directed and our Insomniac fx guys worked on but in stills....

The outfit was made by a costume designer here in LA from fake fur. It was not very warm and Mosh (the model) was genuinely cold as we set up the green screen outside where the temperature was unusually low for southern California.

Time....

Unfortunately for many of us working professionally, that is very hard to come by.

LOL, awesome. Thanks for sharing! That girl in the beginning reminds me of Frost from Mortal Kombat. :p
