It's a pretty model and a good portrait, but the skin tone is too unnatural, like a manikin. #6135012

Michael E. Brodie July 04, 2008

I think I may be a bit jealous of your Photoshop technique, so I hope what I'm saying isn't taken as a negative criticism. The lighting, the pose and even the expression of the model are arresting. However, you've made her so flawless that some of the human warmth that should be present in a portrait, has been lost, at least for me. I think a little more realism would make her even more beautiful, since this stunning perfection makes her seem more of an object than a person. Still, you got my attention right away with this image! #6139242

Skyy McKendry July 04, 2008

Thanks so much, everyone for your comments & criticisms. If you could see this image life-size you'd be able to see every pore & fine hair on Angela's face. She just has incredibly flawless skin! She also has what Marilyn Monroe had: her face is covered with tiny blonde hairs that capture the light like a nimbus & make her skin glow. Honestly, about the only thing I did was remove a few moles, lighten the whites of her eyes & use the dodge & burn tools to sculpt her face. #6139735
