Hey all, This is my first time posting in this section.

I was trying out some skin-smoothing techniques I learned here in this forum. My friend has pretty good complexion, but her arms have quite a bit of hair and some small things around the face. Let me know how I did (Click on pictures for larger version):

I like what you did on her face, but the pp on the arm seems a little flat.


not a lot of gear, but I have endless amounts of energy!

How would I get the arm less flat? Up the contrast? It seems like the arm was flat in the original as well.

Looks pretty good, I think a little over-done for my taste though.

I think they both are great - the second one looks a little brighter on my monitor.
Great Job!
