Basically re-worked or deleted all the 'problem' photos. Current portfolio is purposefully depicting more female 'energy', since all my upcoming gigs are along that vein.
I want to invite you all to take a look. All photos and post production shot and performed by me.

Magazines sharpen their images, not blur them.
If you want a clean face, you'll have to go in with a healing stamp and remove those flying hair and makeup manually.
Then use Dodge And Burn (on 2 curve method maybe) to scrub out any blotches beneath the skin.
However, your photos are very vivid and shows a lot of variance.

Your work is ridiculous to me. Far to much post editing, all of it looks like a bad comic book.
Also some of your picture choices are just strange. The picture of the girl "running" and the one following are terrible. Poor facial expression in both pictures and neither adds to your portfolio.
I'm not sure exactly what you are trying to work toward in your career but it will probably take a lot of hard work to get there.

I think they're kinda cool. It's an illustrative look but if that's your thing you seem to be on top of it. Or getting there. The processing is interesting.
The running girl fell a little flat for me too but maybe I don't get it.

Thanks Jayc Yu. Could you tell me which ones are the problem photos in your opinion?

Ouch!! lol. I'm going for key art, which is typically dynamically-lit and a tad eccentric. Video game box art, movie posters, promo shots for TV shows, ads and select mags. I'm trained under the Slickforce retouching technique.
Thats the second time about the running girl. I've tossed her and replaced her with a composite shot.

Thank you, Lee. I completely agree with everything you point out, although for some reason I kind of liked the way the hand shadow looked, personal preference I guess.

thought that was a little on the harsher side, but I kind of have to agree; just not really my style.

Thank you as well, Miss Photog.
If anyone is up for telling me which photos are my weakest, feel free to take a shit on me. I would like to attempt to switch them out.
