This has been a monumental week for the Retouching Academy Instagram team, as we crossed over 50k followers, and posted inspiration that was met with an overwhelming response. Curating artwork is a challenging task, one that we address with fresh eyes as often as possible.
This week presents a myriad of different media and techniques, from swirling plays of light, to hyper-realistic paintings, to an undeniable fondness for freckles and red hair. We explored distortions of reality, in an effort to push you all to create work that inspires yourselves.
Below are the Top 5 images that struck a chord:
