Hi all!
Here's a good tutorial, on skin retouching without using blur and portraitura.

So you aren't using blur but you are ADDING artificial texture? How is that a better technique?

Hm, thanks.

So to sum up, its healing brush on original image + dodge & burn (albeit done on middle tones) + very irritating correction of hue/saturation + fake texture with noise..

better lit image might make for better illustration though..

PS: hurts me to look at her shoulder... ;(ugh.. protruding bones..

First thing I noticed. Just so distracting. No matter what the skin texture is that just defeats the purpose.

Interesting tutorial BTW.
