Hi, this isn't my first clean, but it is the first one that i have not hated.



It is not amazing. The shade of grey that i used in some places look incorrect...i only had one shade, so i just used it for all purposes.

I also forgot to clean the sfx on the main panel

All suggestions are appreciated :)
Thanks

Ok, very important thing: Do not over-level the image because it causes it to lose midtones, thus making the lines look choppy. That image is a good example of this. Also did you level after you've done the greys? Because the panel where Nami is smiling, it looks like the greys are choppy as well.

May I suggest you go over this tutorial:

It's very easy to understand and it will help you improve greatly. :)

Well, i have gone over that tutorial many times...are there any specific secions that i should focus on? Every time i use quick mask to do the greys i either loose detail, or I add unnecessary detail.

The only time i leved the picture was at the beginning.

If we may please see the raw you used for this clean, we may be able to discover the problem with how the image looks overlevelled.

well, that raw looks about as leveled as it should be, so anything you did on top of that probably caused the distortion
