I like it, the image and the style. I would like better to have her legs a little
darker with color and transition about the same as upper body. As it is the
legs always draw the attention. Highlights seem cooler than I would like,
that might be a taste type thing, but it helps separation.

In my opinion, it looks completely over done. Just ask yourself a question...

Do you see this kind of retouching on any magazine??

Try to calm down those highlights everywhere, in general I think the contouring technique you have used, isn't working as its far too harsh..

Hope that helps. :-)

Thanks a lot!

I haven't made retouch for any magazine yet, so I didn't expect print quality, just looking for something new. I always admire highlights like them so I tried make something similar. I guess that i'll prepare 2 or 3 retouch more in this style asap/

ofc more opinions are welcome!

Yes, try lowering down those highlights, they look a bit too fake.

Again Drake, sorry if I sound boring but less is more...

the image is totally filled with cyans, there isn't any real skin looking like that...

Also whatever you use to do that effect on the skin, is making her fingers and overall look feel dirty...

Sorry... :-)
