i really like the shine effects to all your works.  this looks really cool.  i wish i can imitate this technique.  that is why i am here at this website to do something like this. dodge and burn is important to all images but being creative like this, is something i am looking for.  i am not here to create a portfolio to make money.  i want to create a style that is different.  do you have the original?  i really like to see the changes that you made.  just awesome!

hey brother, very good work but yes it does look CGI but a good CGI. But do realistic also, it's even harder.

You seem to have missed everything below the chin.

Just my thoughts ~ MR

i am trying to create the same effect like RG.  i really like it because it is different.  freckles below the chin can be easily removed.  nothing to it.  RG kept it and so did I because from what i believe, freckles should never be removed because it is a special trait of this person.  i was more concerned of creating the effect that RG came up with.  Jill Greenberg is another one that i really like.  it is different and so eye-catching.

Are you highjacking this thread??

Come on... :-)
