    They seem pretty lo-res to me, it would be difficult to make even a 4x6 if these are full resolution images.

    they are not low res and they print out to an 8x10 very well. They are posted at about 200kb I now have High speed and will be able to upload larger files. It only took 4 years to get it but everything comes to those that wait.

    That would be impossible since her eyes are hand painted must be your monitor. Her eyes are actually brown.
    This is her brother and I didn't change his eye colour

    She/He isn't referring to the blue color of the eye. Look in the center at the black...see the red tinge? I'm pretty sure you could easily correct it but there's definitely red eye there.;)

    Overall, I'm not sure I like the 'look' but everyone has their one style. It might would help to do a different background color (white or black maybe?). Their skin/face just looks overworked in post edit for me..some parts look even over sharpened (referring to parts of the hair where you can see it most). The skin that looks the most 'off' to me is of the girl with blue eyes. It's blotchy & flat feeling.

    I definitely give you points for being creative though!

    I agree that the "decapitation" looks a little disturbing, hehe..

    I am sorry, I just don't find these particularly interesting or good. I think you need to ease up on the heavy PP and learn to find the beauty inside the person as is. Painting eyes and skintone backgrounds don't help the situation either.

    From a technical standpoint; the eye colors don't match, the photos are over sharpened, and their are unflattering shadows.

    Also, with all thise PP... why not get rid of some blemishes?

    mannella, what exactly do you mean by "hand painted"?

    you mean you used a wacom tablet?

    you didnt need to "repaint" the eyes to change the color.

    i tend to agree with thompson on this one...
    its fun to see what pp can do but i would consider changing the BG color and fixing some of the imperfections.

    I don't know how the red would get there since I did the eye ball to. Could be from the sharping. I will have to check the master thanks for the comment
