well i can see a great passion and great dedition to works on details! but above all i can see a great patience!
Ur personal style is beautiful and u control excellent a lot of details using an excellent creativity because to solve a lot of problems in these works need a lot of creativity and of course a great ocular sensitivity....but the most important thing u got a great taste....and ur concept about the difference between a male shiny-shadows-art.deviantart.c… and girl retouch is excellent clear in ur mind
Of course i got a strong concept about these works. Personally i don't like me more this extreme style...with all boosted. for this reason i hate all magazine with this effect.....yes beautiful and advanced effect but for me and in my personal vision without a soul so in those magazines, in any page, it seem to see cyborg.... of course i repeat these are great advanced piece of art...and i like me watch them in this way! i think u'll understand my engl....u know it isn't professional
In the time, my tastes were changed. In the past i started with retouch works, only after 3 years i started manipulations. I remember a lot of works to try to work the skin....only after a lot of failed works and a lot of study finally i had reached some little goal....but only for hobby.
i repeat, in these last years my tastes are completely changed....because for me and for my tastes, naturality is the best. for this reason i work less possible on image, leaving imperfections...for example i love see the pigmentation of the skin or some nose or ear a littlecrooked etcc... an example about pigmentation of the skin is this ----> draaket.deviantart.com/art/Ann… where i like me clear skin but leaving the natural original pigmentation.
yes of course i know the market need perfection but i hate this way to think! In my personal vision an excellent retouch for me is when, watching the model and the final work, u can't understand if it is a retouch or less!
Advice or tips? Naaaa i cant give u advice or tips......because the way of retoucher (of course im talking about an expert retoucher) is personal and linked like a rock to the personal taste and vision of the author.
