After working with Ali for a couple years now, it made sense to feature her wonderful, curly hair.
This is a composite of three images, built around her face to create a dramatic fantasy feel.

Wonderful work and model!
Eyes are so captivating...are there some liquify work on them?

The eyes have the color shifted using a HSL layer, but those beautiful large eyes are all Ali (IG: @ali_zagame)

This photo as so much potential, but the color of her hair at the bottom is very distracting. Especially how it goes drastically from red to her natural color.

Not only that, the color of the skin on the shoulders is totally off and not only here, but also on the face, plus a too red nose and a weak work on the hair dynamics etc. But I agree that there is potential.

Thanks Radisa. I don't have a lot of experience with using Liquify on the hair, so I'm sure it could be better. Any pointers to advice or technique would be very welcome.

Maybe I'm making up something that isn't there, but I thought the hair color change worked with the fantasy feel. It made me imagine that she has this expression because some magic suddenly changed her.

Certainly as I started working with it I had a very Firestarter feel in my head. :)

Thanks Luis. I'll have to check back but I'm pretty sure the HSL layer covers all the hair, but it is more out of the light there. Perhaps I should have dodged it up more.
