Not really my first try as I've been practicing for the past month now. This is as far as I can get on my own so I thought I get some advice for those far more experienced. This is from Skip Beat ch150.

I'd say it needs a little bit of denoise (Topaz Vivacity plugin works best).

nooooo! please don't use the denoise!
the page i quite good but I think that the darker grey parts are a little blured from the raw itself, if you aim to HQ you should redraw the greys

Heres what I meant by denoise.

Thx for the response guys. The gray redraw with gradient was what I had been looking for too. And SLAiNTRAX, what setting would you suggest for denoise as whenever I try it tends to blur it more.

I use 0 as noise treshold and the rest default

That raw needs no denoising.

Only thing I see is some dust in some places. You can use an adjustment layer with lots of black leveling to help get all of it.

Thx everyone for all the advice. One quick question. Anyone know a good tutorial for redrawing the grays for the bottom middle section. It starts off thick and then it thins out near the bottom. I've seen a few grays and gray pattern tones that are done this way and can't seem to replicate it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It doesn't need redrawn I don't think. It's just a more grainy texture, so it's supposed to look like that.
