They look fab!  I've been doing similar work, trying to teach myself the same tricks.  How, exactly, did you do the green hair trick?  I can't seem to get the hang of that!

Love them all, especially the 1st!  What kind of techniques did you use on that photo? Your skin looks perfect and the eye amazing!

Thank you!  Grin

To change the color of hair/eyes/even skin I used the pen tool to outline. After surrounding the object, click make selection, (I usually do a 1pt feathering radius). Once the object is selected, go to Image>Adjustments> Now if you want to change the brightness go to Adjustments>Curves (for eyes, or to pale skin) if you want to change the color go to Image>Adjustments>Hue/saturation

To recap

To brighten the selected image:

To change the color of selected image:

For the skin, I used the patch tool. I selected the area around a blemish, and pulled it to a patch of clear skin. It erases the blemish (Its magic! ^o^). Then I used a dropper tool and selected the color of my skin. I painted my entire face the with the flesh tone. Afterwards I clicked Edit>Fade. This allows you to fade in/out the last thing you did. Making it seem more/less prodominant of a change

Another amazing thing about Photoshop is Brushes!! I got my brushes through bing.com "free photoshop brushes". Dont forget to use youtube. It is an amazing resource for photo shop tutes!

Only thing I'd watch out for is how much you soften the skin tone. I have a very talented photographer friend and he's always telling me less is more when I edit my photos...He always tells me that you need to keep some of the original texture and some of the lines in the skin so it doesn't look too over processed. You've done a decent job though! Photoshop is a hard program to master. :-P

Good work! Photoshop is such a time suck, I used to spend soooo much time on there, but it was for school so it's okay, right? Haha. Anyway, keep at it! You're doing great and with skills like that you could photoshop photos for people to make a little money!

<3 green hair btw
