    Wow, what a difference! It's like a plastic surgeon and a makeup artist joined forces. Would love to know the steps you took, especially re the skintone and eyes.

    The work on her armpit/breast is most impressive. I don't believe I would have thought to address that. Very nice.

    Hi Guys,
    Yep, sorry, that photos about 3 months old, but I wasn't sure if I had shared the before and after before.

    As for what was done, she was skinnied up (notice the waistline and rear end), the elbow and underarm where cleaned up. Her face was made a tad bit less pointy, skin cleaned up, hair gleamed, overall darking, and liquifying of the eyes to open them. Then the eyes were "lit" in photoshop.

    I only have the original left in a small jpeg. Would anyone like to offer up a photo that I can walk us all through step by step? I'll need a full size image, preferably in RAW.

    Hugs!

    I don't know?

    Yes, I will agree the eyes are much better; however, I really like to see the individual strands and curls on her hair in the original.

    The photoshop image is too feathery around the edges. I like to see clean lines sometime, especially when it comes to hair.
