Why wouldn't they have simply hired a hotter model to begin with?

Probably because an ugly(er) model plus the cost of retouching is less than the cost of the hotter model.

But does any woman seriously look as "hot" all over her face and body as airbrushed photos? The bottom line is that it's unrealistic; all about projecting a fantasy image.

What's up the the nose family? Is that real? A joke? They all got nose jobs? Anyone? It's freakign me out.

They've all got false noses attached to their faces, and Greg apparently has made them look authentic.

I'd like to know the context of some of these ads/whatnot, though -- why does Pixar have so many dark, dark shots they need lightened? Why not render it right in the first place?

I especially enjoyed the digital retouching of the CAT shoe. Again, it struck me as strange that a scuffed shoe was photographed at all, but Greg's (Photoshop?) skills are, indeed, excellent.

Actually, I think she is pretty hot (untouched) --- anyone photographed so closely will have his/her pores and smallest of blemishes accentuated.

The bad lighting on her face was the biggest problem I had with the original.
