Hi everyone.

This is my first try with a fashion portrait with studio lighting (don't know why its seriously a lot harder than a natural light one, dont know why).

It had more troubles than I expected from the LR file. Still thinking that the face was too flat, but didn't risk to do carving since i dont have much practice with that, and i dont like overcarved images, so I just tried some soft shadow adjustments, but didnt achieve what I intended -.-.

I think the left arm still need some correction because of the bracelet give the illusion that the wrist area is a lot thiner that the arm before it. I dont know if the right arm armpit area wrinkles need correction, cause I tried to take them out but it looked too false, plus the wrist bone look a bit unnatural but I didnt risked taking it out.

Thanks for the feedback!.

This is fine. But if I was doing it I would take the skin retouching down it looks a bit too much for me and I like the fix on the side keep that. The leather on the side of the face looks different from the rest fix that. But this is mostly color/some contrast/light moves if you want this image to shine. Also, be careful removing hair it start to look fake I some time remove and draw back or sometimes liquify to a fix on a jumped layer if  I don't want them so pronounced.

The retouch part looks good, I agree that it could be a litle less on skin and hair however.  Remember if it's fashion then the garment is the star of the show, retouch enough to keep the focus on it and remove or tone down the distractions.
