Before and After


This is my sample project for this class, before: un-retouched artwork, and after: retouched artwork. 

I started out with taking out splashed paint, some uneven colors, moved the position of cacti, then the shape of the planting pot. For the finishing touch, I also saturated the color. 


This wreath image above is an example of retouching and re arranging. 


This is another example of retouched and rearranged illustration. 

Hope these techniques will help you ease at work!

Recently, my friend asked me if I could retouch out the fence from her favorite horse picture. 

I told her that could be tricky but I would look at it. Using the same technique I shared with this class, 

I retouched out the fence and color corrected. She loved the picture and couldn't believe that could be done. I was very happy to help, too.

This simple technique could improve not only finishing your art, but also finishing your photography!
