No I really wanted to know exactly to the point what is wrong with it. I know I didn't do that good. But I fixed it up.

I'm not trying to be mean, but if you claim to be a retoucher and even remotely think this is quality work... then I don't know how you could get paid assignments.

The key to good retouching is to NEVER blur. Skin is a textured surface. It needs to have texture.

I have made a tutorial on Dodge and Burning retouching. See if this helps your technique.

Tutorial is here: http://porterretouching.deviantart.com/ … /#/d5d27hl

The coloring is also over saturated.

I am starting to learn dodging and burning, I haven't been retouching long. No more then 2-3 years, and just last week I finally found out how to do a split frequency, and also how to dodge and burn. Now I need to keep practicing  it so I can master it. No more burly skin! smile

Makeup are too much retouched, and partial desaturation is not good for this kind of picture...

these look like shit are you blind compare them to the works of others in the thread and you can see how bad they are. I think you are trolling though no way anyone can be that blind.

This my attempt, I'm more of a photographer but recently have been really getting stuck into retouching with exploring all different types editing styles. With your permission and providing the edit looks apart, would be ok for me to display this on my FB & MM profile as a illustrative purpose only credited to you of course wink

I also wouldn't mind trying out files 8085 & 8404.

Thankyou for sharing these smile
