criminal use of photoshop

Sometime you hit on a website and you think "OMG! Some people shouldn't be left alone with a running copy of Photoshop!"

I was speechless after looking at the pictures. Caution: the site is SFW, but might damage your mental health.

Man, you could've spared us poor souls!

Actualy (and this is not a joke!) I have hiccups now... They started while watching the retouches.

*cry*

ayayaye... the originals are bad enough. I bet she watches this cartoon too: http://winx.4fun24.com/.

@Vincent: I did warn about the mental health danger...

@Danny: you're right, the retouched photos look like cartoon characters; the originals look like zombies.

I saw a glimpse of this while Vincent was looking at it and I'm too scared to go back for a proper look.

Do take a look here:

www.iwanexstudio.com

This is not scary, just interesting. Click on PORTFOLIO and click on any of the pictures in the gallery - then touch the photo with your cursor to see the before image.

It's no wonder the impressionable have such a mental struggle wanting to look like the impossible. Most of the "beauty" of these stars is thanks to Photoshop.

@ Nicole: The retouches at iwanexstudio are a lot better than the monster photos of the trailer trash people...

The pink flurry background is almost worse than the touch-ups - the latter though could be used for making these Japanese companion dolls I saw some documentary about last year.
